What is a Pressure Assist Toilet?
Pressure-assist toilets use compressed air to create a more forceful flush action. These toilets take advantage of the pressure of the home's water supply to get the job done, with the help of a pressure tank. Water from the supply line is forced into the air-filled pressure tank at the house pressure of 60 psi or so. The air in the tank is compressed and when the flush lever is pushed, the water rushes into the bowl. One benefit of a pressure-assist flush is that the water is contained inside the pressure tank, which is inside the china toilet tank.
