The Toilet that Saves Lives Around the World Makes Life Better at Home

Can a toilet have the power to save lives?

Worldwide, 2.5 billion people lack access to adequate sanitation facilities. Every day, 2,000 children die from diseases caused by this lack of proper sanitation. In regions of the world where water is scarce and sewer infrastructure doesn't exist, open pit latrines allow disease to spread through direct and indirect contact with human waste.

Buying a Champion toilet from American Standard means being a champion to help the cause of safe sanitation. With its Flush For Good campaign (, American Standard donates one of its pioneering life-saving hygienic latrine pans to people in Bangladesh, one of the poorest countries in the world, for every Champion toilet purchased here in North America.

American Standard engineers have invented SaTo (pronounced SAH-toh, derived from “Safe Toilet”), a cost effective sanitary toilet plan that uses ingeniously simple mechanical and water seals to reduce disease transmission by closing off pit latrines from the open air.


What Makes this Toilet a Champion?

The Champion PRO flush valve technology drives water rapidly into the bowl. It has a large 4-inch piston-action accelerator flush valve with the industry’s largest siphonic 2-3/8-inch trapway. This powerful performance has earned it the highest possible score in the Maximum Performance (MaP) test, an independent report of toilet bulk removal performance, with their capacity to successfully flush 1,000 grams (2.2 pounds) of solid waste.

The Champion PRO high efficiency toilet (HET) consumes just 1.28 gallons per flush (gpf). It is engineered to virtually eliminate clogs, noisy flushes and the dreaded overflow. These Champion PRO HETs — consisting of both elongated and round front models — use 20 percent less water than standard 1.6 gpf models and are WaterSense-certified by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

Other features that make the Champion PRO a top toilet performer:

    • PowerWash Rim – the bowl cleaning system that scrubs the bowl with pressurized water from the rim during every flush. This siphonic-action technology removes every last piece of paper and waste, while using only 1.28 gallons of water.
    • EverClean – the permanent antimicrobial surface that inhibits the growth of stain and odor-causing bacteria, mold and mildew on the surface. EverClean helps toilets stay cleaner, longer.
    • Installation Ease – each Champion PRO toilet includes and EZ-Install kit to facilitate installation. It ensures that floor bolts remain upright and the tank-to-bowl connection process is streamlined. Plus, the time-consuming task of bolt cutting is eliminated.


Indeed, it is the same advanced R&D expertise behind the Champion toilet’s top flushing performance that enabled the development of SaTo for use in developing countries where no piping and sewer systems exist.

Since launching Flush for Good earlier this year, American Standard has pledged hundreds of thousands of pans, working with partners BRAC and Water Aid to distribute the contributions resulting from Champion toilet purchases here. The program will continue in 2014.

Buy a Champion. Be a champion. It’s that simple. The bonus is years of top flushing performance, backed by a 10-year limited warranty on both tank and trim.
