Do low-flow toilets really work?
Yes, they reduce the water required per flush from 3.5, 5, or 7 gallons to 1.6 gallons, saving water and reducing your water bill. Low-flow toilets have been engineered with higher velocity flushing to clear wastes, versus higher volumes of water.

The Water Conservation Center has very high efficiency toilets, using just .8 gallons per flush. They incorporate air pressure and suction to use less water. Come see them for yourself!
