Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by LousyDIYer The first toilet we ever purchased and couldn't be more excited!
Based on previous reviews, we went with this model and we are not disappointed. It was easy for our friend to install (took about an hour to remove old one and install this one). The tank is on the smaller side and it's higher off the ground than our old one. It flushes great! Even though the lid isn't as sturdy as I'd like (it's a softer plastic but does the job as long as you're not going to stand on it), it's an easy fix if we decide to. I think it's priced well and looks great. We will definitely remember this brand for future purchases!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0Â by gandude truly honest review
My battleship sized bombs were dispatched with finesse and valor by this king of the powder room. Admittedly, I was skeptical on the performance- how could so little water process so much material? The answer to this question we will never know, it just does it. At 16.5 inches high, itâs about 2 inches taller than our previous unit. My wife at 5â4â finds the height perfect while I at 6â think it a bit tall.
It was a snap. I am a pro DIYâer and total R&R time was about 35 minutes. Everything is included with the unit for installation except silicone sealer. Silicone goes around the base of the bowel to prevent water infiltration from mopping or water spillage. I called the 800 number because instructions on youtube recommend putting silicone on the base before installation, but the rep said do it after- less messy. Kudos to Delta for quick customer service.
Everything worked 1st try. The porcelain seems a bit better than competitors (less waviness) and the looks (for a toilet) seem above par. The seat is terrible, we plan on buying a soft close seats in near future. Note also the flush lever, it's on left side.
Overall, we are very happy with our new toilets. The 2nd unit goes in this weekend.

easy install. take your time. I have installed 3 of this exact model and 4 of the larger delta. this model 1st one couple years old works great. noticeable drop in water bill. I have had no issues with stains. my friend uses a disposable bowl wand on hers every blue moon. far better than other brands that I have installed that are cheaper. have had no flush issues on any of them. as toilets wear out I am replacing with these. last one I installed cut water bill about ten dollars a month.get delta model with all the parts and you wont have to run back to store for anything.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0Â by MJL1 Looks great but not a great flusher
Ok, it's a 1.28gpf so we weren't expecting perfection. On the other hand, it is listed as a 10 for flushing and it is an 8 at best.
It does a great job with liquid waste but solid waste tends to stick to the bowl. Really stick. To the point that some heavy brushing is sometimes necessary. Almost every solid waste flush requires a re-flush.
We called the company to see if there was some way to improve the flush and were told no. You can't really raise the water level, which is really low, unless you have tiny hands. I gave up trying because there is no leverage to move the part you need to move where it is located.
Ease of installation and great looks make for the minor frustration of having to re-flush and the occasional brush. It took about fifteen minutes total to install it after removal and clean-up from the old toilet.
Don't even bother installing the seat that comes with it: it is not worth the plastic it is made of. Just plan to add some $ for a nice seat.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by Giggsy Great Toilet for the Money; Easy to Install!
Let's just start out by saying that I've never done ANY plumbing in my life. Never. I decided to buy this toilet based on the other reviews stating how simple it was to install (plus it seemed like a good toilet, too). I literally had this thing installed in 30 minutes with no help from anyone! I knew that I needed an extra tall wax ring since I just had new (thick) tile floors installed, plus I needed a longer water connection line because this toilet is several inches higher than my old one. I had both of those ready and the toilet was installed with ease. Whey they say "no tools required" it's true -- everything you need is in the box! I also love the minimal amount of water it uses per flush. Like others have said, the seat is definitely flimsy, but eh...it's fine for now. I'm sure I'll replace it down the road when I get around to it, but I'm in no hurry. I love my new toilet!
