I took delivery of a 2004.014 yesterday with great anticipation. Out of the box, I first noticed that the glaze at the rear of the inner bowl does not extend to the underside of the rim. The glaze in this defective area is lumpy, causing shadows that look like mildew exists under the rim. This unfortunate "stain" is visible without having to look too deeply under the rim. The next defect is that the glaze on parts of the toilet's exterior and on all of the tank cover is wavy. I am reminded of when a road crew has laid a fresh layer of asphalt on the freeway without taking the time to level the surface properly. The third problem is that the rim of the toilet is uneven. I noticed this when I placed a brand new (not cheap) Bemis seat to test the fit. The Bemis rocked. Placing the Bemis on another toilet, I could not get it to rock. Placing another flat object on the 2004.014 confirmed that its rim is uneven. A fourth problem is not a defect, but a design disappointment. The opening of the bowl is closer to a compact toilet's. This is because the rim's wall is very thick (1/2" thicker than the other two, non-compact toilets in my house) and the distance between the centerline of the seat bolts to the back rim of the bowl is 1" wider). Finally, looking into the tank, it is clear that the tank is bonded to the toilet base. I had assumed that the toilet was crafted as one piece. That misunderstanding aside, the lack of skill with which the bonding agent was applied leads me to believe that I could have set a better bead, and I'm not an expert. I called AS' customer service several times. Combined with that experience - the reps did not even ask what the problems were; they simply said to return it - and the shocking disconnect between the quality of *several* aspects of this this-is-not-a-$100 toilet, I am now looking at another brand.

fast easy install of a great toilet that is easy to clean and with the potty seat cover it handles people from toddler to elderly! All toilets would be replaced with this IF it cost less.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Eigen A little disappointing
Not as perfect at flushing as the reviews and videos suggest. Sometimes takes two flushes if you want clear bowl water. Overall, though, a quality product that I expect will last many years. Love the warranty. Wife was hoping for a sleeker look.

We bought this toilet because I wanted a one piece toilet to eliminate the step of having to place the tank on during assembly. This was a fine choice. This toilet flushes without clogging up. It is awesome! We no longer have a nasty plunger hanging out by the toilet. One reviewer mentioned having poo stick to the bowl and not flushing cleanly. We have not had that issue. The only drawback I could see is if you are not a very strong lady or are a slighter build man you may have trouble setting this toilet as it is very heavy, over 100lbs. It is likely much heavier than the toilet you are taking out so do not misjudge thinking that since you can wrestle the old one out you can put this one in.

Easy installation. I did have to replace the flush valve seal. Water dripped from the top of the valve non stop. After replacing the seal all work as it should. The wife did complain about the water level being low in the bowl. However, the water level is likely just right for guys when in the thinking position.
