Rated 5 out of 5Â by MrBill61 Really smart deal
I have now purchased and installed four of these complete units from Delta and have nothing but praise for this product. Obviously, someone who has installed toilets came up with this clever design and included everything the average DIY person would need! Unless you're replacing an older toilet with some kind of odd hardware (not unusual) that must be removed, everything you need is in the box. It comes with an unusually long supply line which is handy if your water supply cut-off valve is not close to the toilet.
The design of the tank fits into more narrow spaces than previous models and the tank only has one hole (the main drain to the bowl) below the waterline rather than the more-traditional inlet for the water supply and two or three holes for bolts to attach the tank to the bowl. On this model, the water inlet supply line comes into the tank above the waterline and the mounting bolts are attached to a flange around the main drain. All of these "eliminations" reduce the chances for future leaks.
I've been installing and replacing toilets for 45 years and this is the first big improvement I've seen since tanks were placed directly on the bowls rather than having a piped connection. As you can tell, I'm way too excited about something like a toilet design!

Rated 3 out of 5Â by LLPrice94 Quick Release Seat a Pain!
I've had this toilet for just over a year, and although I love how it looks and for the most part it works well, however, had I realized it was a quick release seat, I would have passed. It's always loose and when I removed it to see what the issue is I noticed the bracket was cracked on one side. Made of plastic so not sure how this can be avoided! Noticed many other reviewers have same issue. Any solution?

Rated 5 out of 5Â by reb177 Smart design, easy installation
Everything about this toilet seems smart and well thought out. The water supply line is included and goes to the top of the fill tank, eliminating a common leak point and negating the need to buy a supply line. The downside of this is that if the fill mechanism fails, it must be replaced by and identical one from the manufacturer, unlike standard mechanisms that can be replaced by various types.
Installation was a breeze. The toilet comes with a kit including virtually everything you need to remove an old toilet and install the new one. The wax ring included is the âfunnelâ type, with a pcv center that fits directly into the sewage pipe.
The toilet set has a snap-on/off feature making removal for cleaning very simple (note that a more traditional seat can be used, however). The seat itself is simple plastic and not very substantial. This toilet seems about an inch higher than the old round one I replaced. Flush is complete, but because of shallow water level in the bowl, surface matter sometimes remains.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Vince44 The features and looks are attractive. The installation instructions need an updgrade.
Just installed it last night. So, no durability comments to make.
Comments about the removal kit:
1)A nice feature of the all-in-one concept.
2) The ultra absorbent foam called out on the list of items in the removal kit was, I guess, this separately bagged block of semi-rigid, blue plastic? When I put it in the bowl to absorb water, it didn't absorb anything. It floated in the bowl like a brick. I wonder if it was defective? I used a sponge instead.
3) The latex gloves, scraper,and towel worked fine.
Comments on installation of new toilet:
1) The toilet tank installation was easy. I like the fact that the tank assembly is ready to go. Just one hook up to the water supply line, remove the rubber band around the flapper, and tighten the 3 bolts that connect to the bowl.
2) The toilet bowl installation had a couple of glitches. One was in the packaging of the components. The toilet bolt mounting bolts and washers were bagged with the wax ring. The plastic discs that fit below the washers was in another bag with the tank installation items. I grant you that the instructions clearly mention the plastic discs and the illustration shows the plastic discs, but why not put them in the same bag with the bolts and washers?
The second glitch was the seat installation. The instructions say "Place inserts into mounting holes". Then insert screws through mounting bracket and tighten down securely but don't overtighten. When I did this, the inserts don't fit all the way into the mounting holes.The sat up about 1/4". Are you supposed to tighten the bolts until the bracket is flush with the tank bowl? Not sure if I've got this right yet. Time will tell, I hope.

Toilet works good, seat design needs to be thrown out
Everything about this toilet is great except the seat. It needs to be redesigned , the quick release bracket is made out of cheap gray plastic, it shattered in approximately 20 pcs (I still have them), You tighten the seat down and then the first time you sit down it moves. So you tighten it down and it still continues to move. I still tighten it again and I get the same problem. I ended up putting two 7/8 in. SS washer along with a star washer under the nut to hold it, hasnât moved with all the big people that use it. The quick release bracket is a design joke, you wouldnât find it in a Boeing Lav.
