Best Anti-Clog Toilet for Rental...


I have a toliet in a rental that keeps clogging. Its a poor design where the waste is flushed to the front of the bowl through a small hole.

I cant get my toliet auger down there to clear it, if its even clogged.

Is there a toliet on the market best for rentals?

Menards or Home Depot are my favs.


Thanks

Is this a very old toilet? I installed one of these recently, it has a great flush.

I always tell everybody if youre looking at menards/lowes...... for a toilet ,look for something in the $120-130.00 range as a good baseline
I think they should give people a free good plunger with every one of those junk $65.00 toilet in a box kits they sell!

I was going to say a 5 gallon bucket with a toilet seat. Work great in a small boat too. Just add a rain coat for privacy. LOL

Hard to say with rentals, people who don't own things have a tendency to treat them different than if they owned them. I would buy a one as recommended previously.

Here's a good review from somebody who owns both a Toto Drake and a Gerber Avalanche. http://www.terrylove.com/forums/show...l=1#post326211
