Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by KohlerMan Flushes very well at 1.6 gal. fit Very well under existing counter cause it's a very small unit.
Received with a missing important part. My plumber intalled a replacement flush kit just to make it work. After that everything worked great. This is a small bowl. Small seat and low to the floor. Just what I needed. This is a very heavy well constructed toilet. One small rubber white fill tube was missing so the bowl would not fill but my plumber replaced the flush mechanism with one he had on his truck (Thank Goodness).

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gizmette Handsome Toilet...as Toilets Go
This is a good looking toilet and although not as efficient as others, was purchased at a good price. The first one came in broken, and it was a scramble on the phone to get HD to figure out how to get another one to us.

The flush mechanism is sluggish and the toilet must sometimes be flushed twice to completely clear the bowl..

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DosSloan Horrific product. DO NOT PURCHASE. You will thank me!
In 2006 our baths were remodeled & this product was installed along w/2 Toto Drakes(both superlative products). Due to the low height of the tank the designer recommended it for our child's bath. I had read the Rialto reviews & had serious reservation however the designer assured me her clients were pleased w/the toilet. Sadly I permitted its installation-something i seriously regret!
Unlike the 2 Totos, which have NEVER clogged, I have repeatedly had to ;unclog my child's toilet, & not because of excessive use of paper. I have also used it & had it plug up on me! The size of the trap is simply too small, clogs frequently, & toilet has weak flushing power. I've told my child to go potty, flush then wipe & flush again. Absurd! My mother in law managed to plug, flush again, & overflow it. Additionally the flapper design is inferior. The toilet has began leaking water-unlike the 2 Toto Drakes which still have the original flappers from'06, & as others have mentioned, replace flappers/parts even from Kohler do NOT stop leakage resulting in wasted water & higher water bills.
Finally the bowl has less use the the 2 Drakes yet becomes filthly & requires more frequent scrubbing. It s/b noted that the Drakes do not have Sanigloss, something I wish I had order, just the standard finish.
After 10yrs I've sworn never to purchase Kohler & am going to order a Toto replacement & donate this toilet to charity.
The Rialto is an inferior, NOT recomended, product.

I have three of these in a home I just moved into. They all had the same flushing problem, flapper would not fall, when I bought the house. I have fixed this problem before, in other toilets, by replacing the flapper. I was unable to find replacement flappers for this toilet at my local Home Depot so I went to Kohler's website to find the proper part. The part had been discontinued and replaced with a different part. When I tried to install the new flapper it did not go on like the old one. I had to Kohler to get directions to install it. This did not fix the problem. I determined that it was an issue with the flush levers. I bought universal replacements for them only to find out they don't fit. I had to special order these from Home Depot at about three times the price of most levers. Then on of the fill valves stopped shutting off. When I took it into Home Depot the plumbing guy just laughed and said I can only get that from Kohler. I was able to find it on Amazon for less than Kohler, but it was still more than three times the price of most fill valves.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Amatuer Does the job for the small 1/2 bath that I've installed it in.
I needed a very short toilet for a 1/2 bath and the Rialto measurements fit the bill.
Home Depot shipped it to my door since I bought it on line with free delivery.
I had to have assistance to line up the holes since the toilet is wider the usual and you can't locate the hold down bolts due to the overhang.
A 12" flexible connection is supplied with the Rialto but the fixture sits so low that I purchased a 9" connection and still had plenty of connection to spare.
I haven't quite figured out why the inside diameter of the seat is so small; it could have been a little larger but it works out fine. So far no problems afer having it installed for 6 weeks.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tutti The Rialto my Kohler is stylish and efficient
I have purchased the exact same product, two in fact, when I had a previous home and was very satisfied. I now have a new home and purchased another. The product is modern and sleek and right in tune with my interior.
