Spec overview

Image Product Flush GPF Bowl Rating?
HET 1.0 Elongated 87%


Flushing system - operates on a gravity fed mechanism, with a double cyclone flush. What's interesting is it uses less water. (1.0 gallons in total.) Many standard units use up to 1.6 gallons and the difference can be quite noticeable in terms of water savings.

Skirting - It has a concealed trap which gives it a more contemporary design. What's more the lack of cracks and gaps around the edges is reduced meaning there is less build up of bacteria which causes odors, for a more hygienic bathroom experience for all.

Shape and type - It has an elongated shaped bowl which is great when thinking about user comfort. Additionally, it's one piece which means there is less work to be carried out in its installation because the tank doesn't need to be attached to the bowl.

Accessible - Meets ADA requirements with whats known as a Universal height bowl which is a tad taller than standard bowls and helps put less stress on joints and muscles.

Considerations before you buy

Mounting - Whilst the majority of consumers will be intalling a floor mounted product, there is also a wall hanging option too.

Efficiency - The most efficient toilets are gaining more traction and popularity looking at the market. The savings that can be made do make a differencent just to your water bills, but also the environment. Not to mention some states allow tax rebates. Look for products with the Watersense label.

Bowl - Two things to think about when it comes to bowl. The shape and size. You will need to pick between elongated, square, or round when it comes to shape. Then careful consideration should be paid to how tall the bowl is. ADA compliant options usually add an inch or two to the standard bowl heights.

Outlet - Think about where you waste outlet is located. Most go through the floor at the base, however, some buyers will require a rear flushing option.
