Let’s face it, nobody really likes potty talk, but Hyatt Regency San Francisco Airport is flushing things out and is bound to make their competition green with envy.
As a recent recipient of Skytrax hotel poll’s “Best Airport Hotel Awards 2011 in North America,” Hyatt Regency San Francisco Airport has just installed nearly 800 new, eco-friendly toilets in all its guestrooms and public restrooms.
As part of the hotel’s commitment to the environment, Chief Engineer Larry Builta is continuously looking for ways to enhance the property’sgreen initiatives. He comments, “As a result of this recent installation, the hotel saves at least 2.5 gallons of water on each flush, resulting in approximately 500,000 gallons of water a month and an annual savings of $125,000 in water/sewage costs.” Thanks to this initiative with PG&E, the hotel anticipates several additional partnerships in conservation with the public utility as the hotel continues to minimize its impact on the environment.
For consumers interested in the water saving toilets installed at the hotel, the specific style name/number is the Caravelle 270. Available online at Amazon.com and many other sites, this model is also available at neighborhood appliance stores. Highlights of the product are as follows:
· High efficiency toilet (HET) – 1.6/0.8 gallons (6/3 liters) per flush

· Large fully concealed trapway
