Default Which high flow or pressurized toilet do you recommend

Wife wants 2 toilets changed out to high flow or pressurized flush model. Which brand do you recommend. American Standard or Kohler. Any other brands or models I should be looking at?

Thanks,

Just finished a spec house and for two of the baths used Toto's. Has a #1 and #2 feature in the top of the tank. Used Kohler in the other 3 baths and it doesn't look half a strong

I haven't dropped a deuce to test it but the flush itself looks very good.

It's easy to say Toto all you want, but dang, they are expensive; but that's not saying a high end Kohler isn't as well.

To me, the only difference I can see between American Standard and Kohler is the price. My two Kohler heads were 5 bills apiece whereas with A.S. they would have been 750 a piece.

We have a family member who, for medical reasons, "moves in a very large way". After fighting what seemed like daily clogs in Mansfield and Kohler toilets for years, we finally had our plumber install an American Standard Champion 4 for $537 total. In 7 months, we have not needed to plunge it once. I'd buy another one.

My standard mount toto was priced comparative to the above prices. Think it was actually under 400.

We got the American Standard, I think the Champion. It advertised being able to flush 14 golf balls. I will state that in the past 6 years, I've only pooped more than 14 golf balls once. It really is a great toilet. No more plunger!!!

My $500 numbers were for the high end Kohler designer models, not the everyday run of the mill looking variety.

I thought the TOTO patent expired and Kohler now offers an equivalent with the larger diameter trap.

What is a plunger? I have 4 Kohler's for 15 years, and have never had a problem with any of them.

American Standard Champion 4 is the only way to go. Here is the video about.

Unless you're using bottled water to flush your toilet, the payback for changing toilets to a
low flow" unit is decades down the road. Toilets don't wear out..all the components can be changed and updated (except the flush volume).
