    Read this toilet study

    You'll see what works and doesn't.
    There is a newer version of the study but a few people, including me, think that the method of replicating waste material is not as good as this 2003 version.
    After reading this study I chose the Toto Drake elongated. Many, many others also have used this toilet and highly recommend it including Terry Love.
    You will not find any Toto's at Home Depot or Lowes, but plumbing supply houses have them and I bought mine via internet. As with all products you get what you pay for, buy the $99 model at Home Depot or Lowes then also include their best plunger and some plumbing tools when you check out.

    My opinion, worth price charged.
    I'm just an amateur.

    Gotta go the the other post. I bought a couple of Toto Vespins, and they are great products. They work as advertised. If you get them from an internet seller they are not a great deal more money than high end units from Home Depot.
