Rated 5 out of 5Â by Raydtek Great toilet
I didn't expect much improvement over a similar toilet that was 10-years old and was prone to clogging. However, I now call this toilet the "big gulp" as it sucks down any size load quickly and quietly with a small amount of water. Apparently the redesign included a larger diameter discharge hole between the tank and the bowl for better flow and a redesigned bowl that concentrates the action to the center, rather than swishing around the perimeter. While the load disappears, it can't be going far and I'm thinking that the recommendation that one hold down the handle for a full tank discharge with large loads is wise advice for the homeowner, but not to be expected or needed of occasional house guests. Kudos to American Standard.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Scott Great toilet, even if I had to "import" it!
After 15 years of putting up with the early design 1.6 GPF toilets installed by the builder, I decided to upgrade to something that might actually get the job done with a single flush. After looking at several different makes and designs, I decided that I wanted to purchase these as a replacement for the two useless "1.6 x 3 GPF" units. First, I'm extremely satisfied with the results -- easy to install, and one flush is enough about %95 of the time. And, while it's true they are noisier than non-pressure assisted models, thatâs a small price to pay for the reduced water usage and increased cleansing power. (Plus it was fun to watch the nosey cat take off like a rocket the first time I flushed one following installation!)
Regarding the âimportedâ part, for some stupid reason, the only places on Earth that Home Depot wonât do a store delivery of these toilets are Guam, the Virgin Islandsâ¦ and the State of Georgia? They would ship it to my door, but not the store â huh? I live about an hour NE of Atlanta, so I ended up ordering online and having the two toilets delivered to the closest store in South Carolina, about 90 miles from my house. The reason I wanted store pick-up? First, online orders delivered to the store are inspected â broken bowl or tank? â no problem, the store takes care of the problem. Secondly, would YOU want something that weighs a total of 140lbs and is made of CHINA placed in the tender care of someone who actually has âOOPSâ painted on the side of his truck? UPS actually broke a cast iron cylinder head during delivery to my home once....

We had to use a plunger and flush 2 or 3 times constantly. We have'nt had to use a plunger or flush multiple times since. I installed the toilet myself in less then 2 hours. I got this one as a test and will be installing 2 more in the rest of my house. It's been a true plessure.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by TomR A nice toilet marred by casting defect
The pressure assist (by Flushmate) is fantastic.
Unfortunately the bowl base is badly cast. On mine, the back 40% of the toilet was cast to sit flat on the ground, but then the front 60% sweeps up from this flat plane to about 1/4" out of plane at the very front of the bowl. I ended up spending a couple of hours grinding burrs off the base, and finally resorting to shims to keep the toilet from rocking.
And no, it wasn't the floor, its perfectly level, the old American Standard toilet set upon it perfectly. Also checked with a level.
