We've spent time analyzing some of the top TOTO toilets. The MS624214CEFG#01 is one that we feel falls into that category thanks to its contemporary skirted exterior, low water usage, and being designed for user comfort and convenience. We go over some of the main features and specs below to give readers the full picture.

Design - A beautiful skirted trap combined with a one piece style gives it a modernistic touch. Users will be able to find this in cotton, colonial, beige, and bone for a diverse range of bathroom themes.

Bowl - If you're wanting something with a higher bowl, this could be just what you've been looking for. The manufacturer notes this is universal height meaning it's slightly taller than average. What's more an elongated bowl gives users more leg room whilst seated which ensures they have a more comfortable experience.

Flush - This is another low flowing toilet that meets EPA standards. Also known as WaterSense. Once the trip lever is pulled, it sends 1.28 gallons through the glossed bowl for effective bulk waste handling.

Considerations before you buy

Room size - Think about the bathroom size and shape. Not everyone has the luxury of a spacious washroom. If that is something you find yourself questioning, there is a number of ways around that including small and corner toilets. Round front bowls can also reduce the size considerably.

Rough in - You will be faced with needing to know what your rough in size is. We can help you understand how to measure that here. Usually a 12" is the standard, but you should also ensure that you don't require 10 or 14 inches.

ADA compliant - When we refer to ADA loos, we mean products that a taller than standard bowl from base to the top of a seat. The tall ones are referred to as comfort, chair, right, and universal height by various manufacturers.

EPA compliant - A WaterSense label will tell you everything you need to know about a products efficiency. For products that have this label must only use up to 1.28 gallons and below to be compliant. This is up to twenty percent savings compared to many of its competitors.

Wrapping up

The MS624214CEFG#01 toilet is one of those modes which have a modern feel about it. The trapway is fully concealed giving it a smoother surface, and the bowl is fairly low profile. Combine this with its eco friendly flush and the inclusion of a soft closing seat and you have a solid choice for home use.
