American Standard releases Toilet Challenge App

PISCATAWAY, N.J. — Testing a toilet’s flushing power has never been easier — or more entertaining — thanks to a free Toilet Challenge App now available from American Standard. Users select such flushing adversaries as golf balls, kid’s clay, cat litter, chicken nuggets, hotdogs and even bananas.

The Toilet Challenge App, available for download at iTunes, American Standard Toilet Challenge App, serves up a video demonstrating how American Standard toilets fair against a variety of unusual materials. This app will work on the iPhone, iPod and iPad.

The results of the flushing challenges are derived from actual product tests, so users who are shopping for a toilet upgrade can simulate tests and be confident that the American Standard toilet they select will deliver years of high performance without the need for a plunger. It is recommended that these flushing tests not be performed at home.

After a toilet has proven itself in battle, users can also use the app to access product specifications and find local retailers. American Standard offers a complete line of flushing platforms that are capable of discarding more than 2.2 pounds of solids, without double flushing or clogging. The company’s toilets feature fully glazed trapways and the industry’s largest flush valves designed to drive more water through the bowl for greater flushing power. Models such as the FloWise 1.28-gpf HET meet strict water efficiency criteria, earning them WaterSense-certification.

The American Standard Toilet Challenge app features:

* Videos of American Standard toilets as they go head-to-head with everyday flushing obstacles to answer the question, “Will It Flush?”
* Direct links to product specifications to determine which performance toilet product best suits individual needs.
* Information about toilet technology available through direct social media feeds.
* Nearby retail locations or online outlets where a specific American Standard performance toilet can be purchased conveniently from a smartphone.
