I have Kohler . A couple are the old class 5,s cimmeron? elongated bowl comfort height.
They don't clog which makes me happy , they also don't rinse out as well as the swirly types ....wife not so happy ...I think she's overreacting. heh heh
I believe there is a newer model class 6 that has more of a rim rinse .

Cadet's are bloody good toilets. The flapper is oversized which makes the flush fast and powerful. It's hard to plug one of these. They come in both residential height and commercial hieght for the added comfort. We use them a fair bit in places where we've had frequent plugging problems.

I'll throw in my experiences.

Kohler Wellworth, works but needs occasional plunging. Crappy design on the bowl to tank seal.

Delta Riosa, Its new, but it works well so far. Has proprietary internals and a small water spot, but does have a full skirt.

American Standard Champion 4, clogged fairly easily, was a pain to plunge, had a rough trapway, and the bowl was 1/4" off side to side on a level floor.

Toto Aquia III, NEVER clogs and dual flush. Very small waterspot and so harder to keep clean.

I installed a Kohler Cimmaron in my last place, didn't like it. Instead of a flapper they use a plastic cylinder that lifts up. The chain to the flush lever has to be fiddled with to get it adjusted just right. It seals with a rubber ring sort of like for a mason jar ring. If I went away for a week or more the ring would get stuck to the seat in the bottom of the tank. The whole thing is a highly developed bad idea.

What kind of flush valve does American Standard use? I need to replace 2 ancient toilets with something that is hassle free.

I have one American Standard in our original bathroom.....and two new Toto Drake II's in the addition. EASY to clean, flush very well and use only 1.2g of water.

I bought one of them off Amazon...I think it was $275....with free shipping. And, yes, it arrived intact.

I have 2 cadet 1.6 gal toilets . They work pretty good no real complaints . The only thing you have to be careful of is the finish of the bowl . I would try to look at it before you buy .

Toto - but expensive


We replaced our toilets with Toto 8 years ago. Excellent performance clogs are extremely rare compared to the problems of the previous toilets.
