What toilet can handle big dumps?


The water saver toilets of the mid 90s were a joke, just a regular toilet rigged to get by on 1.6 they probably used more water with multiple flushes than they ever saved. Most of the cheap toilets sold today are not much better. Look for a toilet with a larger flapper opening, larger and fully glazed trapway. These will provide a very powerful flush without the loudness of a pressure assist. I installed an American Standard Champion in my house and it actually flushes better than the pressure assist toilet in my second bath. It was over $200 but in this case you certainly get what you pay for, it never clogs. As another poster mentioned definitely get a "chair height" or "right height" model.

You can get a low end model with poor performance from any manufacturer, you gotta pick the right model, guaranteed it won't be the cheap one!

this is the one I had the opportunity to use:

http://www.totousa.com/Neorest/Neorest500.aspx

On top of the butt washer and dryer, it has an automatic lid opener and closer. Best toilet $2000 can buy. Now, if you want real fancy, you have to kick in another grand for the Neorest 600.

Nice thread! LOL I just sent this email to my wife.

A new Commode for your Birthday LOL ? While reading through the threads on DIY (do it yourself) forum I ran up on this thread.
http://www.diychatroom.com/f7/what-toilet-can-handle-big-dumps-94890/index2/
So's you won't have to read through the whole thing I saw this post which I believe is true.

The water saver toilets of the mid 90s were a joke, just a regular toilet rigged to get by on 1.6 they probably used more water with multiple flushes than they ever saved. Most of the cheap toilets sold today are not much better. Look for a toilet with a larger flapper opening, larger and fully glazed trapway. These will provide a very powerful flush without the loudness of a pressure assist. I installed an American Standard Champion in my house and it actually flushes better than the pressure assist toilet in my second bath. It was over $200 but in this case you certainly get what you pay for, it never clogs. As another poster mentioned definitely get a "chair height" or "right height" model.

You can get a low end model with poor performance from any manufacturer, you gotta pick the right model, guaranteed it won't be the cheap one!

I have known that ToTo commodes do not clog. Some time later this year lets be looking for a sale at HD or Lowes. Our commode waste water because it has to be flushed 3-4 times when I use it or it cloggs. Our commodes we use now were not cheap units and would make a nice replacement for Mom or the Kids.
http://www.totousa.com/Neorest/Neorest500.aspx Impressive isn't it? Only about $3800. Complete with remote.

Click here then click on elongated. The DIY site has a good review on the drake. The one piece units are nice, but I will settle for a 2 piece.
Also it might be better for our septic tank is we have less water going into it.

Love XXXXX

p.s. I have not liked our commodes for 15 years.

I don't have any answer, because I'm not a plumber who is experienced in this field.

I just wanted to say that I love this thread! I hope you get the answers you need.

Caroma or Toto Drake. Both are very good, the Caroma is exeptional.

I have a very inexpensive Eljer 1.6 gpf, elongated bowl that works exceptionally well. I think it was like $125 or so (maybe less as it was on sale).

It has a 3" passage from tank to bowl and (I think) a 2 1/8" trap diameter and full length glazed.

If you can stop this baby up, it's time to see a doctor.
"What size wire and breaker goes with that?".

A funny as this thread is, it is an improtant topic. I am also loking to buy a more powerful toilet for my basement. It is not such a big deal for me since I remember to preflush afer dropping a duece. But the last straw was on New Years Eve. I had some guests over and eventually someone clogge dit since they were not used to my patheticlly weak flush. It was very embarrasing for both of us. The home store I was at also had flush ratings. The best performers all had 4" flappers, but I did not think to look for a fully glazed trapway.

I just put a Zurn Z5551 in my house to replace a 90's Kohler one peice. Like night and day. 3" tank outlet flushes like crazy! And it's handicapped height with elongated bowl. Actually a commercial fixture. Love the damn thing.
