Toto

I bought two one piece--$$$-Totos about a year ago and would recomend them. I got the sanigloss finish in the bowls and both seem to clean themselves. Seldom do I have to flush twice. I don't have any kids if you think that might make a difference. I heard so many complaints about cheap low flow models that I tried to get one of the best rated.

Yes, Toto is "top of the line" in toilets.

I used to be constantly plunging/snaking toilets at my rentals... I finally gave up and disgust and replaced all the various brands and models - including some newer and expensive American Standards - with ADA height Toto Drakes. I just recently had to plunge one - the first time in in 5 years - and it appeared to me that the tenant had to put around half a roll of TP down it before it attempting to flush.

The only problem I've had is that the chain's attachment to the flapper has pulled through on two and the Toto's non-standard flapper is not a stock "big-box" chain store item - I ordered a replacement on the net , and keep an extra on hand.

all toilets are not equal in how much they can flush. some, like the toto drake can flush a bucket of golf balls while others have a problem with a small amount of toilet paper.

check out this site before purchasing toilets http://www.allianceforwaterefficienc...d_02-16-09.pdf

Toto 2

I love my toto as well. I have the Drake CST 744SL. I bought it 1 year ago. It hasnt seen a plunger yet! I am remodeling another bathroom & will be buying Toto a twin brother. Definitely worth the price, considering what a plumber costs these days. Beer 4U2 Jina

When I was young and reasonably successful I always took great pride in the type of car I drove, now Im old and not so successful and have to settle for taking pride in my type of toilet...TOTO ULTRAMAX. I think more of my toilets than my car. These are great. I have the elongated bowl, ADA height with the sanagloss finish. Im a big guy, 6'4" and 350 lbs. you would think I could clog one of these babies up easily but it doesnt happen. These are great toilets.

I wish I would have replaced all the toilets in the house when I got my original Toto. At the time I paid about $250 at the local store. Little did I know they were getting rid off the plumbing supply department. Right now I can't find anything cheapper than $440 localy, though Internet has some good prices, but I am kind of leary about buying toile on the net. What do you people think about the internet purchasing?

Toto 2

Charlie-Locally, in Upstate, NY, I pay $333 for mine. I wouldnt get it off the internet because if there is a problem, you have to pay to ship it back. Jina
