Spec overview

HET 1.28 Elongated 87%


Water conserving flush - it features a eco friendly flushing system that uses just 1.28 gallons of water. Some people sometimes mistake this as meaning the performance suffers. However, modern innovations with how the water is transferred from tank to the bowl can make better use of less water. For example, this one comes equipped with TOTO's tornado flush mechanism which will thoroughly rinse and clean the bowl.

ADA compliant - The seating height is slightly taller than standard models and meets ADA criteria making it easier to access for people of all abilities.

Seat included - Includes a soft closing seat which is designed to reduce the amount of noise when you lift and set it down. No more loud bangs potentially damaging the bowls rims.

Glazing - The bowl comes with Cefiontect glazing which is designed to prevent the bowl having a build up of germs and bacteria, whilst helping the water effectively clean the bowl.

Considerations before you buy

Know your measurements - Find out what your rough in measurement is using our handy guide here. Chances are your plumbing set up will be suitable for 12 inch rough in models, however, you need to make sure as incorrect measurements can result in either large gaps behind the tank or the loo not fitting at all.

Water efficiency - Saving water is high on the list of some peoples criteria when it comes to bathroom hardware. If that sounds like you, check for products offering 1.28 gallon flushes and below. These are known as the Environmental Protection Agency Watersense products,and there are several advatages to owning them over 1.6 gallon variants.

Alternatives - Not everyone will require a traditional set up. For example, some basements will require a macerating toilet to push waste upwards. Other people will need a floating loo for either aesthetics or space saving properties.

Budget - Sometimes manufacturers can sell toilet seats and water supply lines separately. This can drive the price up once you've put everything into the cart. Think about your budget limit before you start researching.
