Learning from problems identified by building professionals who install and repair toilets to find out what details are important to them, the design team of Niagra Conservation Corporation have developed the water-saving, ultra-quiet Niagra Shadow 0.8 GPF.
For its innovative design, the Niagra Shadow 0.8 GPF has recently been awarded a 2022 Good Design Award by The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design and The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies.
Toilets account for 30% of water usage in homes.
Niagara’s Shadow 0.8 GPF uses innovative technology to save not only water, but money on utilities.
This novel product was designed to provide efficiency without compromising on performance.
Niagara’s Shadow 0.8 GPF uses Niagara’s patented vacuum-assist Stealth Technology, which redesigned the flush using an innovative design that uses an air transfer tube to create suction that pulls waste down the trapway.
Stealth Technology has won many awards including several EPA WaterSense awards for powerful performance, minimal maintenance, and water conservation.
To date, Stealth Technology has saved the world over one billion gallons of water.
The Shadow 0.8 GPF with Stealth Technology is the best solution for those who want a sleek design, powerful performance, and maximum water-efficiency.
The Shadow is part of Niagara’s new Pro line of products designed specifically with features and benefits for builders, remodelers, and plumbing professionals.
Niagara listened closely to these building pros who install, repair, and specify toilets to learn what details are important to them when installing toilets.
Each product in these lines is built to deliver superior performance with a powerful, clean flush that is virtually clog-free while achieving industry-leading water efficiency.
Niagara’s Shadow 0.8 GPF is ideal for apartments, condos, single-family residential, and hotels.
Built for satisfaction, this product has a comfortable elongated bowl and is ADA compliant.
Additionally, the entire Shadow line carries an industry-leading 15-year warranty and is WaterSense and MaP certified.
The Shadow 0.8 GPF, like each product in Niagara’s new lines, is built to deliver superior performance through a powerful, clean flush that is virtually clog-free and uses half as much water as traditional models, all while achieving industry-leading water efficiency.
Builders and plumbing professionals also find that Niagara’s pre-assembled tanks make their models quick and easy to install.
Niagara models also offer an extra-large footprint to easily cover old tile and save professionals the headache of filling in exposed flooring.
The Shadow 0.8 GPF includes upgraded components such as Fluidmaster fill valves, zinc powder-coated handles, and solid brass bolt sets.
All products boast an industry-leading, 15-year warranty on tank trim, a lifetime warranty on vitreous China, and a dedicated team of customer service professionals for the traditional wholesale plumbing channel.
But what really sets the Shadow 0.8 GPF apart from the competitors like American Standard and Mansfield is the patented Stealth Technology in the tank and the fact that it does not use a flapper, which can be prone to breaking and causing leaks.
This innovative technology has won many awards for its vacuum-assist pull and a noise-canceling tank that provides a whisper-quiet flush.
The technology works using an air transfer tube and a specially designed vessel that sits inside the tank instead of a flapper.
When water fills the tank/inner chamber, ambient air is pushed down into the trapway.
