I am not one for writing reviews but this toilet deserves a review. After years of having toilets that plug at even the slightest amount of toilet paper or "you know what", I finally have a toilet that flushes. I don't remember as a child ever having problems with toilets. I think they were made better then. I think it's a bit silly that they advertise this toilet to flush a bucket of golf balls, however, it is ultimately what hooked me into buying it. We are amazed at the flushing ability and love the slow closing lid. We have had this toilet for about a month and have not had any problems.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Guss Best toilet purchase EVER!! Easiest install EVER!!
Skeptical at first but bought it anyway. Am so very happy. Installation was super easy since tank parts are pre-installed. It is very, very quite when it flushes and removes waste super fast. Tank refill is barely audible. The self closing seat is really neat. Plan to buy more for our 3 1/2 BR home.
I have had rental properties for 30 years and have installed many toilets. The Champion 4 is the BEST!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by MichaelV Poor quality. I can not recommend this product.
It was obvious someone at America Standard decided to patch various cracks with cheap blaze and plumber's putty. I do not know how this passed quality inspection. I wasted over 5 hours and now I have to return it back to HomeDepot. The box is very heavy for one person to lift. I'm really upset about this experience. No toilet seat for the family 2nd floor bedroom area until I return this one tomorrow and get a different brand.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Greenscape Not Happy after 2 of them
bought one of these and it did not flush good. Very inconsistent.. Called American Standard and after being on the phone for 1/2 hour they said it was a bad venting issue.. So I did the stupid thing(since reviews for this were good) and bought another one.. Same problem.. So I had a Plumber come over and do some work for $275 bucks.. Toilet still does not flush good.. I'm not even calling AS back. They were so unresponsive I'm not bothering.. But I learned.. My plumber wouldn't recommend them either.. I will get a Toto, Kohler or a Gerber.. I'm done..

We ordered this on line to be picked up at the store. I had seen a review on line that said to make sure the ever clean glaze was consistent around the bowl and rim. When the toilet finally arrived we had the store unwrap it before we would take it home. As I was warned, there was no glaze under the rim on 3/4 of the rim. That left the underneath of the rim very porous and impossible to clean. We got a refund and went back into the store to look for ant other American standard with ever clean which we wanted due to our rusty well water. Only one American standard toilet had complete glazing with no porous clay spots. We took that home and installed it. Three seals and reinstalations later we found the toilet leaked from the base no matter what we did. We took it back and bought a kohler from Lowes and installed it. No leaks, glaze all over and although it's not the ever clean glaze it was cheaper and better quality.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GregInMN Love the height. We have bad knees.
My wife and I have bad knees and the height really is great.
Bowl is coated and rarely have any "stickies".
Initial flush sound is powerful and not quiet, but the filling is quiet.
The seat slowly lowers so you don't have to manually lower it.
Unit does not come with water feed tubing. Had to get longer water feed tubing because the tank is higher.
I would recommend to anyone and I have purchased this same unit at my previous home and bought the same unit in my newer home.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by HDcustomer Inspect under the rim before buying!
A Home Depot (HD) employee, a manager and myself opened five boxed American Standard Toilets and found all of them had NO glazing around the rim and about a half inch down the side of the bowl! So be sure to check the rim for glazing before you buy. I returned mine. If you can't see under the rim you can still check it by running your fingers under the rim. If it is smooth then it is glazed. If it feels rough then it is not glazed and will stain easily and be hard to clean. Also, if not glazed then little cracks are exposed between the rim and the bowl - very unsanitary.
The Champion 4 is a great toilet if you can find a good one. I could not. What a shame American Standard has such poor quality control. HD has the Kohler Cimarron. It is a very good non-clogging alternative. It has a fast powerful flush because the tank system supports a large siphon jet. The siphon jet is a 1.25 inches diameter opening opposite the trap-way entrance at the bottom of the bowl. It is not as large as the Champ 4 siphon jet but much larger than most other toilet jets.
