Glaze - Something that's always overlooked when you look around at detailed specs online is the type of glazing used. It's an important part of any bowl and designed to create a smoother surface to let the flush do its job better and leave the bowl cleaner. This particular model uses CEFIONTECT to achieve just that.

Flush - Operates on a double cyclone flushing system, which is really two nozzles which create a powerful, cyclonic rinse of the bowl. By doing so, the water cleans areas which can sometimes be missed. In fact, it's so effective that it achieves a 800g MaP score, which is impressive.

WaterSense labelled - It's one of the most efficient toilets thanks to using just 1.28 gallons with each flush, it enables it to meet Watersense standards and be labelled as such. These are far more environmentally friendly than your standard flushing systems.

ADA height - A universal height bowl makes sitting a little more accessible. In fact, with the seat attached, the height is 17-5/16 inches, way into ADA territory.

Seat - Includes a no slam toilet seat.

Considerations before you buy

Rough in - The rough in size you choose is very important. Without doing your due dilligence when finding a replacement, you could end up with a product that doesn't fit your bathrooms rough. See our guide for more info.

Design - Not everyone is blessed with a large washroom. Because of this, manufacturers offer various designs based on ever changing consumer requirements. Do you need something compact? Do you require an elongated or round shaped bowl? Will you need one piece or two piece? These are all questions you should understand before you spend money.

Budgetting - Set a budget and stick to it. If you're anything like me, you'll find yourself buying accessories and extras that have suddenly raised the price by a couple of hundred bucks. Be sensible and within your means.

Customer reports - Found a product you like the look of? Be sure to read what consumers are saying about it online. Look at the negatives just as much as the positives. Sometimes this is the easy way to filter out the good from the bad.

Overall, the MS974224CEFG#01 is worth considering in our view. A combination of mostly positive feedback from buyers, ADA bowl, high performance flush, and reputable brand name are all factors that work in its favor. Alternatively, you can check out our detailed toilet reviews here.
