Rating toilets

I was very curious about your 1.6 gpf toilet rating report. So, I sat down and tuned in for some good toilet reading. I was surprised to read the Mansfield Alto had such bad ratings. I just bought a new house 2 years ago with three bathrooms - all with the Mansfield Alto. All three serve us very well.

Even with the builder's stingy adjustment, they still flush thoroughly. When I bumped up the float level a pinch, I swear you could flush a grapefruit down them. We are very happy with ours. Seems the plumbing industry is going through what Detroit went through with cars in the 1970s. It is a learning curve to determine what works and what doesn't. The Mansfield Alto is a good toilet. Our only complaint about this toilet is boring styling, which doesn't work with our decor. We will probably opt for American Standard's new "Standard" collection.

What do you think?
