We press that button every day to clean out our shit but still many of us don't know what is the role of those two buttons!! Are those buttons really store any rocket science?

In Modern days, the toilets come with two types of flushes, one is bigger and the other one is smaller. We call this mechanism as 'dual flush' toilets and trust me there is a good logic behind it.

Your Welcome!! because we know you will thank us later.

The dual flush mechanism was proposed by American industrial designer Victor Papanek in 1976, but the first practical implementation was designed in 1980, by Australian sanitary-ware company Caroma.


The buttons are used to flush different amounts of water according to the need. Like, The larger button is used to flush out solid waste which takes around 6 to 9 liters of water, whereas the smaller lever is used to flush out liquid waste which takes around 3 to 4.5 liters of water.


Average household in the world uses the dual flushing method because it can save up to 30,000 liters of water in a year if we compare it with a single flush button. It is considered very eco-friendly and it also helps each household cut down their water bills.


So the next time you poop out, you know you have to press that bigger button and if you are urinating which usually takes less water, then you have to press the smaller button.


Be Smart, Save Water.
