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 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!

This was the second Champion Toilet I installed. I was hesitant last year because I had heard bad things about low flush toilets (having to flush multiple times, etc.). However after one year the toilet has been great - no problems at all. It is quick and quiet on the refill. The installation is truly half an hour tops. It is a great value.

Best install I've ever had as I had it installed for me. Worth the price.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DIYer1224 Replacement of Old Toilet
I finally made the decision to replace the toilet in the Master Bathroom. The old toilet was stained and prone to clogging. My wife and I researched several different toilets and talked to The Home Depot employee. We went with the Champion 4 Max because of the different features that it had (Toilet Height, Max flushing capability, and the ability to reduce stains and stay cleaner). I am an average DIYer and the tools were provided that I needed. It was a one person job !! I think it took me about one hour to replace the existing toilet.
I would highly recommend the product that absorbs the remaining water left in the toilet so that you can avoid spilling out that water when you remove the existing toilet.
We have been using the toilet since June 15 and have not had any problems and are really happy with the purchase.

First, I'm a licensed plumbing contractor. i work on commission, so yes, i could easily make more money if i sold toto or kohler.
American Standard just really hit a home run with the champion 4 & the cadet 3 in my professional opinion. i have BOTH in my home- and wouldn't have anything else. i admit, the 'all in one' kit that depot sells the champion with comes with a cheap seat. but something you should know- NO toilet manufacturer makes THEIR OWN SEAT. that part is ALWAYS separate. so if you want a good seat- just wait til the stock one fails, then buy a new one. good news? american standard gave me a 10 year warranty on the whole thing. i prefer the bemis quiet close with the quick disconnect hinges anyway.
and those of you whining about skid marks? GROW UP & clean your toilet you slob. this toilet flushes & cleans the rim just fine.
