Not as great as I expected, but still recommended
on June 17, 2010
I'm serious about doing research on just about anything that I buy, so when I wanted a new toilet, I started with Consumer Reports and then searched out various internet reviews. After deciding on this model, I checked stores and the internet, and purchased it from Amazon. I've had good luck from there, and the price was very good, especially with free shipping. The Amazon experience was perfect; easy, shipped quickly, no problems whatsoever.
As in other reviews, the toilet tank does rock a bit if you lean against it, which is slightly unnerving. I made sure that I told the plumber about this, and he was extra careful putting it together. Still moves. It doesn't leak though, so I can live with that. The added height of the toilet is definitely not for everyone. DON'T get it if you're short, unless you want to dangle your legs. As advertised, it does not come with a seat (What's up with that?). As the typical seat goes from $20-60, that needs to be taken into account when purchasing. The BIGGEST disappointment is the handle. This is the worst, cheapest piece of plastic garbage that I've ever seen, and needs to be replaced immediately, if not sooner. So, why am I recommending it? Because it CERTAINLY flushes as advertised. A flush takes about 2-3 seconds, there is nothing left, it cleans the bowl well, is pretty quiet, and does not clog. This alone makes up for any negatives.
