    Most of the regulars here lean toward the Toto line. Not a bad toilet in the lot, some are quite pricey but they all perform well. Most shy away of Kohler although some models seem to work OK. HD has an American Standard Cadet 3 that also seems to work well. Beware of the Big Box toilets. Most are builder models that are cheap, but don't perform well at all.

    I'd agree to getting a Toto! Toto is not sold in big box stores!

    The Cadet 3 has many people claiming its so good, but, Am. Std. has me so burned out on their quality issues and I'm still waiting to feel better about them before I jump on the band wagon. They really need a whole bunch of "Attaboys" to make up for all the "Ahh S**ts" they have given me.

    These pics from a post earlier today shows what I'm talking about when it comes to Am.Std. quality...

    A cockeyed Cadet 3! Does Am. Std. Have quality control inspectors?

    I was thinking where they are manufactured it might be more like a left handed cigarette and a bottle of tequila!
