    I imagine peeing requires less water to flush so it`s a water-saver.

    What`s to figure out? I`m guessing they are different flush levels for different "levels of business."

    I`ve seen these before. the 1 uses barely any water to flush while the 2 uses enough to take care of business.

    who captioned this? are they retarded? 2 buttons, the button with (1) on it is for flushing urine and probably uses significantly less water

    I believe it`s a different flush option...1 uses less water, and 2 is a full flush

    these toilets are not even standard in US right now, and most americans would still be confused as in why this has two buttons and is not automatic sensor control, and why does the water just go down using gravity and not being pressurized, CUZ THIS IS MERICA GOD DAMN IT!!

    shouldnt the 1 be larger then the 2 since there will probably be more pissing then pooping in the toilet and to remove less accidental presses, make the 1 larger? or am i just thinking too much?

    Really? This is postworthy? It`s probably a water saving toilet, see how the part with 1 in it is smaller? It releases less water. You hit 2 if you want to use a larger amount of water to flush.. Nothing spectacular and really not postworthy

    I have had one of those at my house for a year now. After it clogged for the 3rd time from women, my plumber said to always push 2. Pushing 1 does not allow enough water to properly flush toilet paper through the pipes.

    Maybe this one has been tweaked.

    your american toilets are so much different but so much better than here in the UK. the water level is much heigher which stops the splash back... although i have to hold my penis up from dangling in the water, and it sucks the water down instead of ours that just flushes down the side.

    Not only have these been around for quite some time in North America, but the toilet doesn`t figure it out, you push whichever button is appropriate.

    Japan has similar ones, but you pull the handle for 1 and push for 2.

    yea, these have been around a long time, the US has had the push down for full flush, lift up for half flush style toilet for atleast 15 years and these are just the "easier to use" versions of those, for people who could not figure out the other design.

    @rasbitom is right.

    Down under, we`ve had this "technology" for about 20 years. 5 years of drought virtually made it compulsory.

    Interestingly, design problems occur as the smaller one always looks like a No. 2, while the larger area .... well, you know.
