Rated 4 out of 5Â by tnahpele Nice replacement
I got this toilet to replace an older 1.6 GPF unit since I'm on a septic system and am trying to reduce the amount of waste water.
It arrived very well packaged - it was double boxed and padded. It's attractive and functional. I noticed that the tank refill is quieter than my old unit. From the floor to the top of the bowl is 16.75".
Despite the high-tech dual-flush mechanism, the toilet itself seems pretty basic. No seat or wax ring were included.
The tool supplied to tighten the tank nuts was a piece of metal tubing with a hex shape in one end with a hole for a screwdriver in the other end.
I used two shims to level the bowl. I can't vouch for whether the floor is really level, but the unit I took out didn't have any shims.
The flush button has to be held down for a couple of seconds to get a complete flush. This might be an advantage since I have cats that will be walking over the tank top.
There is a full page of adjustment instructions in the installation guide, including how to adjust the flush buttons and how to adjust the flush valve. I couldn't make sense of the flush valve adjustment instructions, but it worked OK without any additional adjustments. I was concerned about access to the flush valve adjustments but it turns you can just twist the flush valve and pull it out for adjustment or replacement.

We decided to replace a toilet in our house that was using way too much water per flush. This toilet has a great water saving feature with the dual flush mechanism on the tank lid.
This shipped to my house in 2 large over-boxes. 1 box for the tank and 1 box for the toilet. Inside each box there actual product was encased in blue packing bags to fill out the void. the product arrived in great condition with no issues. In the end it took longer to break down the packaging for recycling than it did to remove old toilet and install the new one.
It took me about 10 minutes to remove the old toilet and clean the old wax seal and replace the flange bolts.
It took about another 10 minutes to un-box and place the new toilet. you will need to buy a wax seal and toilet seat for this product (which is why I only gave it 4 stars)
to assemble you bolt this to the floor with 2 bolts. bolt the tank to the toilet with 2 bolts and gaskets. put the seal between the tank and toilet, hook up the water line and you're done. you just need a toilet seat.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by mixmox Great all round
This was shipped to me and it was very well packed. No damage at all.
The tank is made in Mexico and the toilet is made in China. The quality of all materials look fine.
The set does not include closet bolts but I was able to use the existing bolts from the toilet I was replacing without any problem. You do need to buy a wax ring and have some caulking on hand too.
You will also need a toilet seat. We have the SmartBidet Electric Bidet Seat for Elongated Toilets anyway so this was no problem.
You also need a flexible water supply pipe of an appropriate length to go from your water supply to the underside of the tank. HD carries a range of lengths - this is not something that the toilet manufacturer can supply because they donât know what length you may need.
Remember also that if you are replacing an older toilet, there may be unpainted wall behind the tank that needs to be painted before you install the new one. The tank on this set is 15â wide - somewhat narrower than our old tank.
Installation was very easy and the instructions are well written. The tank includes all the connection bolts to bolt the two parts together plus a small tube wrench to hand tighten the bolts.
Flushing: There are two flush modes - operated by buttons at the top of the tank. This is great for saving water for those #1 occasions. We have not encountered any issue with flushing at all. The tank did not seem to need any water level adjustment. Flushing is quick and much quieter than our old toilet.
I am especially pleased with the better height of the toilet.
A nice touch is a sticker on the underside of the tank lid that lists the part numbers for the tank.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Tigerlily Serves its purpose well
It's a toilet, it works. I've learned to appreciate the height of it. I wish it had come with a seat. I wish the difference between the two flush modes was greater. But I guess even the big flush uses comparatively little water.

This toilet is working fine. It is annoying to spend $250 on a toilet and then discover that it doesn't come with the wax ring nor a TOILET SEAT! What? Home Depot sells this one online only. So even if you noticed that it doesn't come with two important pieces, you still have to go to the store in the middle of install. Just a month earlier, we bought a different American Standard toilet that was $200. It was the complete package. That's how all all toilets should be sold. Buying something more expensive and getting less? Not for me. Call me stubborn. I just want to make a point. This is wrong on a lot of levels. I'd recommend getting a product that was complete in the box.
