    I am looking for an eco friendly pressure assist toilet to replace a poor working Kohler Wellworth. I've narrowed it down to these choices:

    1. Kohler Wellworth Pressure Lite (3531)

    2. Vitra Evergreen toilet

    3. Crane Ecomiser (38350)

    4. Crane Economizer 1

    5. Mansfield Quantum One (148-153)

    6. Kohler Highline (3519)

    Anyone have experience with these toilets?

    Is the Wellworth 3531 as good as the 3505?
    K-3593

    Thanks

    Why would you want a pressure assisted toilet when there is an Toto Eco-Drake toilet that delivers a 900 grams of solids per flush with 1.28 gallons of water?

    A couple of questions for you. Why do you think you need a power assist toilet? Are you still assuming all low flow toilets perform as poorly as they did when they first came out? If so, you need to do more research on the topic. Hang around here for awhile, you might find it very interesting. Second, where did you come up with your list? None of these are quality brands anymore. If you want a quality toilet that will do the job for you, get the Toto as Redwood suggests. You don't need a power assist toilet nowadays.

    Kohler makes this one that I sell

    Performance between pressure assisted and large valve gravity are similar in test, and in use.
    If you like the idea of pressure assisted,
    Gerber and Kohler are mentioned often as good pressure assist toilets.
    I'm not a fan of the dual-flush pressure assist. They seem too glitchy.
    You can get single flush pressure assist in 1.1 and 1.6 made by Flushmate
    and a dual flush 1.1/1.6 made by WDI
    I won't sell their dual flush.

    Thanks for the advice Terry!
    A family member recommended the toilets above, so I thought I'd check with you guys.
    After careful consideration and looking at the MaP reports, I think I'll go with the Kohler.

    Here is the Eco toilet I will be trying next.
    Good luck on your Kohler pressure assist.
    I will be removing a pressure assist that I'm been running a comparison with. What I like about the Toto Gwyneth, is that it has Sanagloss glaze, a swirling rinse, and flushes with 1.28.
    I like the fact that it's a one-piece too.
    I've have the Eco Drake in the other bathroom, an elongated version that flushes with 1.28 that I will move to the other room. I normally sell the elongated Eco Drake for $240
    I would have liked to give the Vortens pressure assist to someone, but the cartridge has always leaked,
    It doesn't make make sense to hand someone else that problem.
    It always leaked from day one.
    I will meeting the guy that wrote the MaP report on Wednesday.
    The MaP is a start, but doesn't really tell you much about what you may be buying.
