    I want something that I can run into Lowe's or Wal Mart and buy a replacement seat, and/or toilet seat and tank covers for (traditional). I am not beyond a one piece design, and in fact would prefer one piece. Thanks so much for this site, and

    Have you check Terry's Report on Low Flow Toilets? I think you'll find it very helpful. One thing I've learned from this forum is that the Big Box stores' toilets are not to be trusted. With the budget you have, I know there are several toilets you can chose from,

    It doesn't really matter where I am.

    Most people do buy locally anyway.
    Why ship a toilet, (they can and do break) when you can get them nearby?
    I sell in the Seattle area, and I'm sure you can find what you want in your area too.

    That being said, there are many toilets that will work for you.
    I have plenty of people calling from Virginia, and they can get the same products on my toilet report locally.
    A good one piece would be the Toto Ultimate or Ultramax.

    I even did a little plumbing in Arlington VA a couple years ago for my brother.
    Well, more than a little, he bought me a plane ticket out there.
