FlushMate IV pressure-assist toilets.

These pressure-assist toilets have an inner airtight flushometer tank that is pressurized after the flush as the tank refills (air is compressed at the top of the tank). During the flush operation, air pressure flushes the toilet with increased velocity, improving flush performance. The Sloan Valve Co.'s 1-gallon-per-flush (gpf) FlushMate IV mechanism for pressure-assist toilets still produces a distinctive "whoosh" during the flush, but is quieter than the higher-volume flushometer-tank toilets. The Sloan FlushMate IV flushometer is currently used in toilets manufactured by Mansfield, Capizzi, Mancesa, St. Thomas Creations (Vitromex) and Vortens, with other manufacturers expected to introduce FlushMate IV products in 2005.
