Autoflush toilets are everywhere, but the companies that manufacture and install them either don't engineer in true functionality, don't provide calibration tools, or provide calibration methods that are so complicated that contractors never follow through on setting them up properly. The result is that even with the gains made in the past 20 years in water-conserving low-flush toilets, current autoflush toilets use up to 100% MORE than manual flush public restrooms from 10 years ago. This is wasteful of municipal water, which means it's also wasteful of energy (don't forget the tapwater treatment plant AND the sewage treatment plant). This project endeavors to create a community that designs and shares fixes to common types of autoflush systems that still retain their desirable "touch-free" functionality. Fixes are to be DIY-able but still usable and aesthetically acceptable enough to allow workplaces to utilize them without compromising their professionalism.
