Get an understanding of the features in the table above through our in depth reviews. We look at each unit individually, to see how different specs can be beneficial, and what you should be looking for if you want to avoid a poor quality product.
If you're after a good combination of elegance and performance, this could be ideal. It has a beautiful exterior and a great flushing system to handle busy day to day bathroom usage.
The tank and bowl are joint together in a one piece style, carved from a single piece of ceramic, and the skirting around the front and sides helps make maintenance tasks like cleaning simpler.
It utilizes a dual flush system, which is activated by the push of buttons located on top of its tank. Users will be able to pick between 1.0 gpf and 1.6 gpf depending on the amount of waste needing to be pushed through the outlet. This also means it's categorized as a low flow, WaterSense toilet.
These two different weights of water work well with the glazing in ensuring the elongated shape bowl remains pristine after use. The manufacturer describes its flush as quiet and powerful.
Comes with a durable seat which has slow close hinges to prevent it from slamming shut. Can be put into place, and taken off easily through its quick release feature. Very useful for maintenance tasks.
Overall, we rate this product highly because of its power, efficiency, design, and customer feedback. All key things we look at when analyzing products.
Sharing some design similarities with the T-0001, the T-0008 is something we see as a luxury alternative thanks to the inclusion of tech advancements like the bidet.
Once more, this has a hidden trapway, which is always a plus in our book as it gives it that minimalistic, moderrnized look many look for in their washrooms. It is also one piece.
How this unit differentiates itself though is through the bidet, which comes equipped with several settings to cater for a number of different users. You get a soray for your posterior, pulsating, and feminine. And when your done with the water, there is also a built in dryer. This is a far more convenient way to clean up than traditional paper in our view.
Some excellent extras include the ability to heat the water you use, as well as warming up the seat for comfort. Users can use up to five different seat temperatures.
From what we've seen in our research, it's been well received by consumers, who seem quite happy with their purchase for the most part. However, with these luxury add ons, you can expect it to be more expensive than standard options.
Described as having a strong, but quiet flush, the T-0020s mechanism and glazing works well together in preventing blockages.
It has a siphonic dual flushing system, using 1.0 gpf and 1.6 gpf depending on the type of waste you're handling. This gives it an average flow rate of 1.28 gallons, ensuring it can be classified as a WaterSense product. Unlike many of its competitors, it doesn't use a trip lever to activate this. Instead, there are two easily accessible buttons on top of the tank lid. One high power and the other low power.
There are many similarities between this model and the two above. However, users may enjoy the unique take on bowl style on this one. It is rectangular / square shaped, which is certainly something for differing theme tastes. However, we would argue, that whilst this may be aesthetically pleasing, it's not as comfortable as elongated units.
The bowl is chair height, adding several inches to its height when compared to standard bowls. This makes it ADA compliant, and a excellent choice for people putting accessibile hardware first.
Once again, they include the toilet seat with the package. In fact, it comes pre installed, saving users the effort of attaching it themselves. These small details make a big difference when it comes to time taken to get it fitted.
Whilst we're not a fan of the bowl shape, there are plenty of positives in the spec. It conserves water, is easier to sit down upon, and customers have been rating it highly on several sources.
Rough in - Like most changes you make to your home, there needs to be a plan in place. And when it comes to choosing a new toilet, you need to know specific measurements like the rough in size. To do this, get yourself a measuring tape and measure from the wall to the middle of your waste outlet. Many North American bathrooms will require a twelve inch model. However, fourteen, and ten inch rough ins are quite common too.
Bathroom space - You should be planning how much space your toilet can take up without it making the washroom cramped and closed in. Getting a rough idea of dimensions before you shop around is a sensible step to take. If you have a compact washroom, there are some excellent space saving options.
ADA bowl height - Sitting and standing when using the lavatory may be easy to some, but for others, especially the elderly, it can be quite stressful on the joints. That's why universal height toilets were invented. Toilet bowls that are taller than standard units, measuring between seventeen and nineteen inches are labelled as such. Think about who will be using your washroom, and is it accessible to them all?
Floor mounted or wall hung? - Without a doubt, floor mounted options will be the popular choice. They will fit most modern plumbing systems. Whereas, wall mounted toilets will often require extra renovation work because the tanks are usually built into the wall in a carrier system. However, aesthetics plays a role too. And choosing between them both on design grounds will come down to user preference.
Activation - When we refer to flush activation we refer to what is used to activate it. Most modern options include some kind of trip lever or button. However, a no touch flush can work too. This uses infrared technology, which senses users hand movement above it, automatically sending water through the bowl.
Maximum Performance - If your concerned about the power of a particular flush, why not check out the MaP ratings? They conduct testing of their own, focusing on how well products handle waste. Each one tested receives a score between zero and one thousand. It's all explained on their site, but for those in a hurry, anything above 600g, and you're entering highly recommended territory. However, these models can be more expensive than their counterparts with satisfactory performance. How this effects your budget will come down to the individual.
Water efficiency - Take note of what sort of flow rate is on offer. A 1.28 gallon model can make a huge difference in terms of saving water each year. If there is more than three people living with you, their advantage multiplies and can quickly become a sensible alternative to both 1.6 GPF, anmd 3.5 GPF products. Look out for the WaterSense label if this is something you're interested in.
Is the seat / supply included? - Keep your eye out for an extra costs that may present themselves. Not every product comes with a seat and supply, so be sure to read the small print. If a seat is included, you will probably want to make sure it's slow closing.
Bidet - Washlets and bidets are growing in poularity thanks to being a better solution to wiping. They are usually expensive add ons, but if you've got the money, they are certainly worth it for the convenience and hygiene they bring to the table.
Other brands - Whilst some of you may have your mind made up when it comes to the manufacturer you choose, we feel it's important to take into account there are several competing companies that have alternative innovations that may better suit your plumbing requirements. We like TOTO, American Standard, Mansfield, and Kohler. But there are situations and use cases where we may go with a smaller brand too.
What are consumers saying? - Customer feedback is one of the most telling ways to gauge the quality of a product. More often than not, they feature in depth details about the flush performance, seat comfort, and tank. The best part of this, is that you're getting free advice based on first hand experiences. This is the quick way to understand the pros and cons, but it shouldn't be your only quality assurance method.
