Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mysterium The reason they call it "Champion"
Best toilet ever. Because I was in the process of replacing flooring, I decided it made sense to go ahead and change out toilets at the same time. I replaced three old 5 gpf toilets with a a Champion 4 Max, an H2Optimum, and a Cadet 3 Powerwash. The Cadet 3 is very good, the H2Optimum better, and the Champion 4 is best. I highly recommend it. If I had it to do over, I would have bought 3 Champion 4s. It doesn't clog, it has a great seat, and it virtually cleans itself. I installed all of them myself with no problems. Photo below, but I'm pretty sure no one wants to see it in action. Anyone who does needs therapy.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dissapointed Tank cracked in less than a month.
Bought an elongated bowl. Got home and base was cracked. Returned to HD. Employee switched out and mistakenly gave us a round bowl. Husband installed while I was not home. Looked at toilet and realized they had given us the wrong replacement. Spoke with HD management who refunded difference in price plus an additional $50. Less than a month later the tank is cracked from the handle all the way down the front of the tank, flooding the bathroom floor. Not happy American Standard.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by John Tank cracked after 3 months
I bought 2 of these on a strong recommendation from an employee at HD, and had them installed by a plumber. They mostly seemed to work ok, although sometimes the flush was so fast it didn't carry everything with it. Also, if paper is not completely in the water it does not always go down. Otherwise they seemed ok until this morning, when after a flush I heard water dripping into a trash can that was underneath. It didn't take long to see a long crack in the tank where water was coming out. Now I will find out how good the warranty service is from AS.

Bought this to replace an old American Standard in our guest bathroom. Just installed today, many of the pieces are cheap, break easily. Already had to replace two pieces and the tank is wobbly even though the bolts were torqued down thoroughly. Lid and seat are made of cheap, thin plastic. Disappointed in my purchase. My Kohler Wellworth that I installed a little over a year ago is a much better product for far less money. I'd recommend going that route if you're buying something from Home Depot, or just sinking the extra money on a Drake or Toto from a plumbing supply store if it's in your budget.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by SuperdogSteve Be ready to hold the handle down for this toilet to flush completely
We bought this toilet a year ago as part of the bathroom remodel. The advertisement made it look like a perfect choice. The problem is that you must hold the handle down to flush the toilet completely, even for urine. This leads to a problem with children and guests who don't know to hold the handle down.
They should use the "no slam" technology from the lid, on the handle, so the handle doesn't return to the closed position so fast, allowing the plunger to stay open longer.
The good news is that is has never clogged, the bad news is the bowl does not clean it self as advertised. It is a constant effort to keep it free of sold material that has stuck to the side of the bowl.
I would expect better from all the hype!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dand1 It does the job well.
I purchased this unit for it's flushing ability and have been very pleased. In the past I have clogged toilets from coast to coast. This one has never even given a sound or a sign of clogging when getting rid of a "job" in about a month. It looks good, sounds good and even seems to remove any residue. The chair height is perfect for me although my 2 yr. old grandson has a slight problem mounting it. All in all you can't go wrong with this product. Worth the extra few dollars it may cost you. It was also very easy to install if you have the ability to hold it while setting it in place. Yes I will buy another one for guest bathroom.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by ppage100 A tale of 2 cities. After installation, no problems. But In less than 6 months, the tank cracked, causing a leak. I'm not convinced this is an isolated problem. Luckily these are warranted for 10 years (but not the labor). Unfortunately, you have to have your receipt for proof of purchase, which makes no sense to me. But fortunately, Home Depot keeps your credit card receipts for 6 months, so I was able to get the receipt for American Standard to send the replacement. Unfortunately, it took about 2 weeks to get to me and had my bathroom out of commission. But the install was easy, and there are no problems....yet.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Richard Avoid like the plague
Purchased this toilet 3 years ago and it has been nothing but problems. Seems to be an issue with the mold it was made from. American Standard should know me by name since I have to call frequently for new gaskets/ parts/ etc... Again, I am getting a new toilet now, after only 3 years, because this one does not meet my standard, and should not meet American Standard's either. Main problem is water that leaks from tank into toilet and the seal has to be changed about every year. Toilet was professionally installed. I was just recommended by installer to purchase a different toilet by a different manufacturer by the installer. Only 3 years old.
