Round Toilet Bowls vs. Elongated Bowls
Posted by Brian Burke on February 05, 19100 at 18:50:42:

Hi, Terry,

First of all, I'd like to thank you for putting up such an informative and useful site. I'm about to purchase a Toto UltraMax toilet, and the only choice that I need to make is whether to purchase one with a round bowl or an elongated bowl.

What are the benefits/shortcomings of each one. Some people say that the elongated ones are more comfortable... and that, indeed, is my main concern. On the other hand, I've basically been using toilets with round bowls for most of my adult life, with few problems. I don't know if height/weight are relevant factors, but I'm 5'11", 225 lbs.

Any thoughts on this subject would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your time and help.

Brian Burke
