Rated 5 out of 5Â by Backpackeb Better than I expected
Had no problems installing. I made sure the bolts to the bowl were very tight with the tool provided. I have had no problems with clogging like I did with the old toilet I replaced. You can't use any old toilet seat though, you have to get one specifically for this toilet.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Andy I LOVE this toilet!
Never thought I would be saying I love a toilet but this one is terrific. First of all it is very attractive, looks kind of vintage, like something you might see in the Biltmore House. The back is tall and has a fancy handle. The toilet is slightly more narrow and taller making it easier to sit and stand. The flushing mechanism is powerful. No need for that second flush. I am going to save up and put one in my second bathroom. I highly recommend this product.

This is such a nice looking toilet model. I could not be happier. Look at the detail at the base and the lid. It is a double row of decorative edge. The lid also has an indented feature which is also elegant looking. Even the flusher is fancy.
We decided to install this new toilet ourselves. Since the old toilet had been a replacement maybe 15-20 years ago and we did not do anything with the current tile it seemed doable. I had also made sure the shutoff was good. Since we did not need a plumber for shutoff replacement or flange repair and had written instructions and watched many home shows on tv install, we felt we were good to go.
Before the shipment of the toilet arrived which took about 8 business days, I went out and purchased a wax ring with rubber attached, bolts, caulking and had a saved seat from another round front bowl. What I didnt realize I needed was a new water supply connector. This was a taller model than my old one, with no extra length on the old connector 9 inch. So mid install, I ran down to the store and bought a 12 inch. But it was about an inch too short. Darn. The problem was, after looking at the shutoff in the other bath, was that this one had the connection on the side of the valve, not on the top. Cheaper to go buy longer one -20inch , was next size in stock, than calling and paying plumber. The install otherwise went fine for our first time. We are very proud of ourselves and so happy for this watersaver, new modern white model.

It's weird to say, but I love this toilet.
The most important thing about any toilet is obviously function. The Portsmouth Champion toilet hits this out of the park. I recently saw a Home Depot commercial showing it flushing a bunch of golf balls down the drain, and although I would never try this at home, it's not because I don't think this toilet couldn't handle it. The sound of the flush alone is impressive, but when the water starts swirling around and then leaves the toilet in a flash, nothing is ever left behind.
It's also a very attractive piece. At first I installed it in the bath that we consider to be for the kids, however, it really didn't match the decor. It certainly has a more traditional feeling to it, something that belongs back in the 1930's maybe. So I moved it to another bath in which the decor includes bead board and hardware that is satin nickel with "ivory" handles. This was perfect and worth the extra time it took to reinstall it. One note, the height of this toilet is fairly tall, much taller than the average toilet and even counter height. This was unexpectedly important to me; it was first installed next to a counter and looked awkward because it was so much higher. However, once it was moved to another bath, away from the counter, it looked great.
Installation was a breeze. It didn't come with a seat, wax ring, or supply line, which is why I gave it a 4/5 for value, however everything else was fairly typical if you ever installed a toilet before. All of the connections were solid, and I liked how there were only 2 bolts to fasten the tank to the seat. Finally, it is a very heavy toilet, much heavier than any other toilet that I have ever installed. I would think this speaks to quality.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Babs Great flush, excellent quality
Ordinarily we wait a long time before writing a review but I can't say enough good things about this toilet we've had four months. Unlike other new toilets that you hear horror stories about, this toilet flushes great, just like it's suppose too. We will always pay a little more for quality, and that's exactly what we got with this purchase. Also, the style suits our 1925 house perfectly.
