Features


There are several features included within the design that signify a high quality toilet. This unit certainly comes equipped with a few of these said features. But obviously, you're looking for specifics. No problem.

Flush mechanism - Arguably the most important and also one of the first things we look into before conducting our research. A powerful flush can make all the difference, single flush performance is what you should be aiming for. And despite this product utilizing considerably less water once the trip lever has been pressed, it will still achieve an effective flush thanks to its double cyclone mechanism which is a gravity based.

Water usage - As mentioned above, this model conserves water, using just 1.28 gallons, which compared to the standard 1.6 GPF rate, can be quite a large difference in terms of how much water you save over a long period of time. This will play a part in lowering household bills too. In fact, this is a WaterSense product, meaning it meets the Environmental Protection Agencies (EPA) residential toilet guidelines.

Bowl - It's equipped with an elongated shape bowl, which can be beneficial to users for a number of reasons. Firstly, they are seen as the more comfortable choice due to the position and leg room it offers. Secondly, they are more convenient for men with extra length for additional space they require when seated. One could argue that the shape on the inside of the bowl will help reduce splashback too.

Another comfort feature that can often be overlooked is how tall the bowl is. This is universal height meaning it's taller that traditional styles and certainly easier on the body. Without the seat, the rim height is measured at 16.125 inches and just over 17 inches with the seat. This enables it to be that little bit more accessible to users who may have trouble sitting or standing due to joint issues, injuries, or even disabilities. Making it ADA compliant in the process.

It's also coated with SanaGloss which is specially designed to prevent waste sticking and bacteria from building up within the bowl. The slick surface will help create a cleaner environment after every flush.

Design - This is an aesthetic one piece toilet that has noticeably smooth edges surrounding the tank and front of its bowl. This gives it in my view a contemporary feel that will compliment modernistic bathroom themes which tend to feature brighter colors, making the cotton white finish on this one ideal.
