You can even get an anti-vandal kit with it.

Is it sold through the big three? Lowe's Home Depot, and Menards?

I searched the "Where to buy?" tab on their website. For me it is a place not far away called "The Fixture Gallery." I'll be visiting soon.

The anti-vandal kit is for commercial use.

I haven't looked, but it's doubtful. I couldn't get any local plumbing vendors to return my calls, so I contacted an outfit in Moscow, Idaho and had one shipped. I paid truck freight from Los Angeles, so shipping was $120 on top of the $300+ the toilet cost. Had I bought three units, shipping would have been the same, though. I'd still do it again--it's that good. I forgot all about what it cost after a week of not having to plunge anything.

I looked for that tab before asking the question.

Closest dealer to me is 80 km away. Nice looking toilet though.

Could not find a large diameter plunger anywhere. Had to fabricate an adapter out of an old tupperware to be able to cover the elongated hole in the stupid thing.


Other than that, it works OK.

Last month, on the advise of a handyman friend who installs a lot of toilets, I installed two Deltas from Home Depot that cost about $ 130 each. County offers a $ 100 rebate so I'm out about $ 80 for both with tax and one adapter. They work perfectly, seem to stay clean better and haven't balked at leftovers etc.

I also went with taller than standard, 16.5 inch I believe, and my stiff joints like that too.

I say go for it.

In Europe, the accessory next to the toilet is a brush. In the U.S., the accessory next to the toilet is a plunger. This may be a case where "Buy American" doesn't make sense.

I'm good at this too. But I figured out how to deal with it and never had to call the front desk:
1. Turn the sink water on full hot.
2. Take the coffee pot from the coffee maker.
3. Fill coffee pot with hot water.
4. Dump in toilet.
5. Repeat 4 and 5 until 'whoosh'.

Has worked every time. Use at your own risk...

Brushes next to both my toilets, no plunger. I do chew my food well though.

We remodeled our master bath a couple of years ago, and put in a 1.28g flush Eljer (I think; I'll check). Full 2 1/4" trap, but still, my expectations weren't all that high.

After 2 years, it's, uh, passed every test I've thrown at it. No courtesy flush required. One flush, done.

this thread stinks

I put dual flush kits in my existing toilets. You can set to how much water you want to release. Good units at 19 bucks each. I did 3 toilets.

I would need three. Do they have volume discounts?
I suppose I should measure the bathroom first.

Of course, I was wrong. It's a Kohler. The Wellworth.



Works every time.

We just built a new house. Installed 3 Kohler Wellworths. The one in the basement flushed incredibly well. the 2 upstairs would plug up after the wife took a piss in there! Got the plumbers back out and found the vent stacks frozen and when he cleared those, the toilets still didn't flush properly. He pulled the toilets and found that the guys who installed them bent over the flange in the wax ring. New wasx rings and they were like a hot damn now! Highly recommend the Wellworth now!
