What's the Best Crapper?

Check out Kohler. I remodeled about 7 years ago and haven't had a single problem with the products.

I'd just go to home depot and try them all out, like you would if you were sofa shopping at Lazy Boy or Rooms to Go.

I wish I could give a serious answer. So here's my go at it. I did a jailbreak on my shower head, can't stand the low flow stuff. I have a time with low flow toilets, end up flushing them 3 or 4 times per use, not sure how much water that saves. I understand some companies have attempted to make improvements. But my thought was if I need new toilet to buy or scrounge some out of an older building to get some good quality cans that actually work. But hey.

I'm embarrassed for the planet that this exists. If I literally had Bill Gates fortune I wouldn't buy this. I mean, I might have a gold toilet, but it would still be just a damn toilet.

on a serious note....Kohler makes great toilets as well as Toto.
Stay away from the box stores, their products may look the same, but if you look at the specs and part numbers they are different. The internals are sometimes different.

A good plumbing showroom will guide you in the right direction.

Well this is my business. It depends on your price point, but for a high quality medium priced crapper you can't go wrong with an American Standard Champion series. It's one of the best if not the best flushing crappers out there of it's kind. I like the elongated bowl chair height models the best, but they make them in round bowl standard height too. If you have small kid you may want to stick with the standard height.

Kohler is overpriced garbage if you ask me, and I've been in this business for almost 30 years. They use to be good many years ago.

I run into this all the time.

Think of it as car part for your Camaro. You wouldn't buy cheap parts for it would you? Why buy cheap parts for the biggest investment most people have...their house??
Good quality fixtures will work correctly and last a lifetime. Cheap fixtures (Home Cheapo) are just that....sold on price, not meant to last.

You run into people who want to buy used toilets out of old building all the time? Here I thought I was an original. I'm disappointed now.

Look, my buddy lived in an apartment building that was built in the 40's. He was up on the 7th floor. If you were sitting on his can an flushed it, you nearly got sucked down. And it was tankless, well right there in his bathroom anyway. Not sure the mechanics of how everything worked back then. Big tank on roof? I don't know, pressure came from somewhere.

Downside to this building was that the back half was condemned, that's where the elevator was. The door was actually open and so there was this shaft just exposed, not sure how someone literally didn't die by falling down it. Homeless people lived in the basement, roaches were by the 1000's. But on the third floor you could access the roof to the building next door and so we used it as a patio, but you had to stay to the front half of the building since the back half was caving in and there were holes in the roof. All night bar was two buildings down, mind you small buildings, so like 30 feet. Nice to be able to just stumble up 6 flights of stairs at 6 in the morning without having to drive so you can pass out.

Hands down the American Standard super toilet that can flush a bucket of golf balls. Never plunge a toilet again.

Exactly. If it can flush 30+ gold balls than it can easily flush shit.

My advice?
Get something comfortable and sturdy.
Then go to a junk yard and get the "ford," "GT," and "mustang" emblems. Use some water proof glue to fix them in place before installing the toilet, and then smile with glee and delight every time you spread your checks and drop a deuce on ford.

Have Kohler and American Standard at work (NFL stadium). Both do their jobs well.
