Nice height, comfortable for those long hauls.... Never has clogged Up. A little pricey, but probably nothing out there for the value. So I can deal with that. easy to install. My 14 year old son did most with guidance. One of the flaps Stuck open once.....since having it for about a month. Probably just coincidence. This is our second one. Oh and most importantly.....great clearance in the front when sitting.....if you know what I mean guys.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PHANTOM Best toilet ever
Once the old commode was removed, the Optum Vormax was a breeze to put in. The tank bolts and leak proof washers were already assembled and all the tools you needed were included. The floor bolts were very easy to tighten. Just replaced the commode in my bathroom and now am looking forward to replacing my wifes commode in her bathroom.

What a toilet, and I know what a bad one could be like. I had two of those cheapies the contractor originally installs. One flush was never enough. Most movements required a cleaning regardless of who used it.
The new AS Optum Vormax does what it says, 200% cleaner than the average. Easy to install. Quiet. Clean. I do enjoy the non-slam lid as does my sleeping wife.
Down side: Any product can have a flaw. My original AS Optum Vormax had a manufacturing flaw. It installed perfectly, no leaks. Within ten days, it started leaking from underneath. I hadn't yet sealed the base and I'm glad I waited, or procrastinated. This unit should never have left the factory. AS had attempted to seal the leak, unsuccessfully. Too bad for quality control.
With a little coercion, Home Depot did replace it with a new one.
I will be buying another for the other bathroom.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MikeQuick Just don't hold the flush lever too long and you will get a great self cleaning flush.
So far, my customers have been happy with Vormax. So far, I haven't heard of any stoppages. I think the secrete to the Vormax flush action is that one flush valve is dedicated to the "jet" hole and the other flush valve to the large, one hole, rim cleaning action. The weight of the water helps increase the "jet" hole's ability to provide a great flush. Unfortunately, if the flush lever is held too long, air pockets will develop between the flush valve and the jet hole. Usually, it will take about four lousy flushes to get rid of air.Also, it will take a few more years to see how the flush valve parts hold up. So, make sure you keep important papers.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ranchodoug Outstanding once replaced and reinstalled
We bought an Optum Vormax about a year ago. It started flushing inconsistently 4-5 months ago. It would half flush one time then flush completely the second time. I asked at the Torrance store and they suggested calling American Standard plus gave a referral to two licensed plumbers. American Standard listened to my complaint then sent a new toilet bowl for free. I used one of the plumber Home Depot recommended (Ivan's Plumbing Repair). After re-installing and adjusting the toilet, it works perfectly. The take away from my experience is to use a good, licensed plumber. This is a complex toilet and unless you know what you're doing this toilet requires proper installation.

From the reviews either you love this unit or hate it. We are in the middle. Remodeled 3 bathrooms and thought let’s pick a toilet we like and buy 3. Started with a Vormax and right away it would not flush unless you hold the handle down for 3 seconds. As others have said, the double flapper system is just a problem waiting to happen, either in flushing or leaking – double the chances of everything.
Bought a Champion 4 golf-ball toilet for 2nd bathroom – flushes 1st time every-time – replaced cheap plastic OEM handle with matching metal Vormax handle.
Bought another Vormax for the 3rd bathroom, what can we say – does look good – metal handle – comfort height. This one flushes fine without holding down the handle 99% of the time – both appear to be factory adjusted identically - go figure.
Replaced the cheap thin OEM seats on all 3 toilets, with more solid Bemis soft close seats.
Son has a new Cadet 3 in his rental home that works perfect also.
Install tips for any toilet – Use the Perfect seal hybrid wax/rubber ring by Danco – love it.
Seal the base with either caulk or my choice especially over tile – grout around the base. See picture – new tile floors – grouted around the base. Keeps nasties out and it is code to seal around the base.....

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MasterBathUpdater Just what I was looking for.
Toilet was installed by a handyman in about 30 minutes. Like the flushing system very much. Toilet height is a plus, I recommend it for elderly and/or taller individuals. Looks very modern -- an attractive and easy update to my master bath. Only negative is the plastic seat, I can see a replacement in the near future.
