Spec overview

Exterior - It's a one piece style, removing the need to attach the tank and making the installation process less time consuming. It is finished in a cotton color, but buyers also have the choice of beige, colonial, or bone.

Bowl - Features a elongated bowl which is designed to be more comfortable than standard sized options. This is due to it being whats known as universal height which is taller from the base to the seat.

Flushing system - This is another loo which utilizes Toto's double cyclone flush, whilst consuming a EPA compliant 1.28 gallons. Couple this with the SanaGloss within its bowl, and the end result is a well cleaned bowlwith reduced bacteria and germ build up.

Seat included - A quiet close seat comes as part of the package which isn't always the case with other manufacturers. The quiet close hinges help reduce noise when shutting it which is certainly a plus.

Considerations before you buy

Measurements - Getting the size right is extremely important. We don't just mean knowing what your rough in is either. Knowing the size of your bathroom and how compact you require it to be should be considered too. Are you going to be sacrificing leg room for space? This is less of an issue if you happen to have a large washroom.

Flush mechanism - Other than standard single and dual flushing toilets, there are plenty of alternatives to think about including touchless, macerating, rear discharge, wash down, and pressure assisted. Some are suited for very specific environments, whilst others are great for day to day usage.

Water consumption - With the aim of protectingthe environment, there are certain advatages to owning a low flow toilet, potential tax rebates is one of them. Saving twenty percent compared to 1.6 gallon options is quite significant.

Bowl - Think about whether or not you need a tall bowl. These are designed to be more accesible for people with disabilities, as well as senior citizens. Look for terms like comfort height in descriptions if this sounds like something you want.

Trip lever location - Staying on the subject of accessibility, think about the trip lever or button and where it's located on the tank. Buttons are usually on top, whilst the levers tend to be on the the side of tanks and occassionally on the front.
