Dual-flush toilet (1980s)

Bruce Thompson

With the increase of interest in sustainability, the dual-flush toilet saves up to 67 per cent water per flush. And it was invented right here in Australia! It’s the handy work of Adelaide man Bruce Thompson, who invented the system while working for bathroom product company Caroma. More than 30 countries now use the dual-flush cistern worldwide.
