Can I use any round toilet seat on this Memoirs Classic? Is the flush loud? Thank you...
Asked by: Sunshine
Yes. You should be able to use any round toilet seat. I prefer Kohler seats. I actually got one with a krypton blue night light. Pretty cool. The flush is a bit loud, but very effective and fast. I close the seat at night before flushing.

Customer Reviews

Memoirs Classic 2-piece 1.28 GPF Single Flush Round Toilet with AquaPiston Flushing Technology in Almond is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 81.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Attractive, stately addition to the bathroom I scoured the internet for at least 4 months before I decided on Memoirs Classic Toilet. It was the most expensive of my choices but I was looking for a traditional style toilet that would fit the footprint of the one I was replacing. It is a compact model that is well proportioned and is perfect for a bathroom with limited space. The comfort height is wonderful especially for someone who is wrestling with knee issues. I was very impressed at it's flushing power. It is very quiet and there doesn't appear to be that much water that releases but it certainly does the job! Solid waste is quickly removed with one flush and the shape of bowl ensures that solid waste hits the water and not the porcelain bowl. I can't really speak to the ease of install as I hired a plumber to do the installation but he had it changed with in an hour's time. You should be aware if you are doing it yourself that you will need to order a wax ring and a toilet seat and a water supply tube.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice toilet I wanted a round toilet in my mudroom since I needed easy access to an open closet I am building that sits next to this toilet. I save about 3" in length with the round opposed to an elongated and I think it will make a difference. The toilet is attractive and flushes well. One quick flush for liquids and small solids. Hold down the handle a second or two longer for bigger solids....sorry if this grosses anyone out. The reason I gave 4 stars for quality is that the front of my base comes to a small point where the two sides of the porcelain bowl were fused together. Almost looks like second quality. I didn't have time to reorder so I installed the toilet anyway. Still disappointed that the base has a small "nose" in the front. Easy install and very pretty toilet. I have the elongated Memoirs with the "stately" tank lid in my powder room.

I have learned to not be a cheapskate about certain items, particularly those you would expect to last for years. I have purchased other Kohler products, and their reputation precedes itself. My house is 80 years old, so I wanted something modern. The space is a tiny powder room, where every inch counts. Enter the lovely Memoirs Classic. The photo does not do it justice. It is so pretty in my little WC. The squared edges are unusual, and I like the little frame around the tank lid. As for performance, wow, I'm sure I've saved a swimming pool's worth of water in only a week. At least it seems that way to me. I'm not sure how this could possibly work, but it uses very little water. I switched out the handle to something that would match my sink taps, but other than that, I loved it, as-is, when it came out of the box. If you are looking for something really attractive, this is it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Product is excellemt, purchasing it was so so I had to return the original toilet because a corner of the base was broken off. Home Depot was pretty good about the return and gave me 16% off the cost of the replacement (after I asked for a discount). A word of advice; open the package at the store or, if delivered to your home, before the deliveryman leaves and inspect the product I ordered my replacement over the phone, not over the Internet, as I did the original. The replacement took a look time to arrive and never appeared under my sign in. When I finally called Home Depot I found out it was because I I ordered over the phone. Overall, the whole ordering process was really disappointing. Also, be aware that the base is long. If a radiator runs along the wall behind it you will have to move the toilet out from the wall a bit. My advice is to have it professionally installed. The seat height is absolutely perfect for us older folk, easy to get up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from almost perfect We bought 2 of these toilets, replacing 2 very old ones. We bought these because the almost rectangular footprint would cover that of the old toilets and we didn't want to see a partial outline in the tile. That worked. We've had the toilets for about 3 weeks. If I wrote this review I would say the toilets are perfect. But last night one of them kept running after being flushed. Looked inside the tank and saw that the fush chain had kinked just enough to prevent the flusher from closing all the way. Easy to fix but it makes me not completely trust the toilets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Pleased Very pleased, we purchased to match the pedestal sink. The toilet stands a little taller than our standard unit and is more comfortable to use in a sitting position. It has a duel flush system; one for liquids and one for solids which is very efficient and save water. The tank refills quickly and surprisingly is very quite. The unit is very solid and is stylish for our power room. We are very pleased with this purchase
