I'm renovating a bathroom and need a new crapper. Whatcha got, whatcha like, and whatcha hate? Anything should be better than what I'm replacing (in function and efficiency).

So far, I have looked mostly at the dual flush variations from American Standard, Kohler, and Toto. Currently I'm leaning towards the Toto, but of course, the models I'm interested in are typically not stocked in the stores. Any thoughts or advice?

Installed Totos last year -- most efficient "bowl purger" I've ever seen. Worth every penny. Also has an available slow-drop seat cover; I thought it was silly at first, but it's nice to not have to futz with avoiding lid-drop-banging noise.

Those slow drop lids are great. We have one in one bathroom, but not the other. My Wife is a notorious lid dropper, but she is completely oblivious to it. Even when it is brought to her attention. You think she would learn after waking our toddler up for about the hundredth time, but no.....she still can't seem to make the connection.

Drop lid = loud noise = kid crying and/or awake at 5am. Seems simple enough to figure out for me. Maybe I just like sleeping more than she does..... smile

Toto toilet is good. If you've got money to burn and you want to live in luxury, consider installing a Washlet seat on it. Even if you don't care for the undercarriage-washing feature, the soft-close and heated seat are nice features to have. I've seen these in every hotel room in Japan, and even in some public restrooms in office buildings and department stores. The high-end units have wall-mounted wireless remotes and are integrated with the plumbing of the toilet so you can raise/lower the lid and seat with the touch of a button, command a flush, and so on; they'll even see you approaching and raise the lid for you.

We have been using PROFLO toilets for years in our homes. I personally have the elongated, comfort height (ADA) version and they are very reliable flushers. Very tough to clog, but easy to clear if they do. They are the house brand for Ferguson plumbing supply and they have locations everywhere. They're relatively inexpensive.

Now if you want features...I think the Numi is still King. It's an amazing toilet. dopeslap

Cost was about $7000 at the builder show a couple years ago. But that is the bluetooth version with the SD card. rofl

Ok,$7000.00 for a toilet? Just out of curiosity, what do these things(toilets) cost these days? They only have to handle the 3 Ps.
