Worlds First Plastic Toilet Cistern
In 1956, Caroma began manufacturing the world's first one-piece plastic toilet cistern.
World's First Dual Flush
In 1980, Caroma developed the first Dual Flush toilet which saved approx. 32,000 litres of water per household due to change in full flush/ half flush technology which allowed home owners and business have the option of 11L or 5.5L flush.
In 2005, Caroma's Smartflush® technology won the Australian International Design Award and Home Beautiful Product of the Year. The Smartflush® further reduced water consumption to only 4.5L/3L.
First WELS 5 Star Toilet Suite
The Caroma Profile 5 toilet was Australasia’s first 5 Star toilet suite featuring a cistern with a dual-flush push button and spout combination.
Caroma's Invisi Series II
In 2009, launched the Invisi Series II range and won the Australian International Design Award.
In 2016, Caroma won the Good Design Award for their Cleanflush® technology toilet range.
REEF TO RIVER
Water is our lifeblood.
Whether it is crashing waves on the reef, ripples teeming down the river or rainwater filling up a paddock’s dam, water is all around us and is important to everybody.
That’s why at Caroma, for over 75 years we’ve been passionate about protecting and conserving water to benefit all Australasians. Conscious that we co-exist with the land, our products are designed with the vision of protecting the vital water resources of our country for the next generation.
And we’re not alone.
As seen in the video, Australians such as Tracey Solomon and Garlone Moulin work tirelessly to conserve and sustain water supplies in the Burdekin area of Queensland to nurture and encourage the land. Our inspiration comes from place’s such as the Burdekin that reflect the natural beauty of Australia.
Tracey, one of the first female rangers in the Burdekin, sets sail on the ocean to help tag and track sea turtles. By doing so, Tracey and her team can monitor the water quality and the overall health of the Great Barrier Reef.
Garlone, who works on a property that’s been in her family for over 100 years, understands that every water drop counts. Garlone has devised new strategies to manage cattle, ensuring the plants can recuperate, the creek banks can recover and the soil stays where it is supposed to.
Water feeds the cycle of life and we are glad to be working alongside everyday people to sustain water.
