Frequently Asked Questions
The Aqua Mizer® Flush System is a real game changer for multi-tenant property owners. Our FAQs explainer addresses common questions about this revolution in plumbing.
Up to 20% of all toilets are leaking at any time, and the reasons aren’t well-known. In the case of traditional flush mechanisms, a worn-out or misaligned flapper lets water through. When the water level drops from the leak, the fill mechanism is activated again and again. This continues until the flapper is replaced and/or aligned properly, wasting between 200 – 400 gallons per day.
Aqua Mizer® solves the problem caused by worn-out or misaligned flappers. Water flows into the tank only when activated by the flush handle itself—not by lack of water in the tank. Water fills from both the top and bottom. The water flowing from the top fills an encapsulated float, which shuts off the water flow after a set period. In the case of a leak, no more than one full tank of water is ever wasted.
When a traditional flapper is worn or dislodged and the toilet gets clogged, nothing stops the flow of water from tank to bowl, then from bowl to floor. The 200 – 400 gallons per day that would leak down through the outlet spills out onto the floor, causing serious property damage. If the tank itself becomes damaged, water flow can be even greater, spilling up to 3,000 – 4,000 gallons of water a day. The patented Aqua Mizer® encapsulated float fills and shuts off water intake whether or not the tank water level rises. Even when a tank is totally broken, catastrophic flooding doesn’t occur.
The Aqua Mizer® flapper is extra thicker, higher quality, and weighted. The weighted design allows for a flatter shape, which results in higher draining volume into the flush valve than with the traditional cone-shaped flapper. The Aqua Mizer® flapper provides a higher flush velocity that helps prevent clogs and uses up to 52% less water per flush.
Average water cost savings with Aqua Mizer® generally come in at around 20%, with payback on initial investment coming within 14 months. For example, a 200-unit property with annual water costs of $120,000 could expect to save $24,000 per year. Depending on conditions and water rates, typical ROI ranges from 6 to 18 months.
Typical new 1.28-gallon-per-flush toilet cost ranges from $350 – $400, while the Aqua Mizer® Flush System typically averages $140 per toilet.
The Aqua Mizer® Protector Flush System features a 10-year warranty, while the flapper has a 5-year warranty.
