    I am researching into purchasing new toilets for my house and have been advised Toto and Eljier are the models to purchase. Any recommendations on recommended model names - preferably one piece?

    I believe that Toto makes a better one-piece toilet.
    Side by side, you can see the better quality of the Toto.

    Carusoe is not made as a one-piece toilet.
    The Carusoe is not one I have been recommending either.

    Something like the Toto Ultimate, Ultramax, Carlyle, Plymouth, Supreme, any of those with G-Max or Power Gravity using the 3" flush valve.

    The Drake II dosen't work for me. The Drake and other models do, though.

    My son puts rocks in the toilet and it won't flush rocks.

    We have a contemporary decorating style and have the Carlyle in the guest bath and the Eco-Soiree in the Master. Love, love, love them both. Had the Carlyle for about a year. Liked it so much I swapped out the other toilet for the Soiree a couple of weeks ago. BTW, you're in the right place to ask. I did tons of research (DW thinks far too much) before settling on my toilets. And this forum is about the best resource around. Chose the models for the look, chose Toto for the quality. Between the extreme flush and the Sanagloss finish, they're hard to beat....

    Couldn't agree more!

    Spouses ("DW" = "dear wife??") don't always understand why we put the time into researching a toilet purchase, but as you say, on this site you realize that there really are some serious differences between brands. You also realize that the advice you get from big box stores, and even from designers, is usually not very accurate. Here, you get the real deal -- real life experience of busy plumbers who know things like which brands (with generally good reputations) actually have a high rate of defects.
