If you're plugging up normal bowls with your BM's, then installing product limited to a 2" trapway isn't solving the problem, is it?INTRO: I'm going with the self-purchase and self-install of Caroma Caroma Stanley Smart II. Plumber was over for non-related issue, and saw Caroma in boxes. He tried to talk me into Gerber Viper 1.6 or American Standard Edgemere 1.28. But their 2'" traps ruled them out.
Plumber touted their 3" flush valve and he modifies the tank to hold more water for a "better" flush. Also said low flush toilets are geared for PVC pipes, while mine are circa 1938 cast iron with likely corrosion and thus not a smooth surface. He never heard of Caroma - and I believe more interested in what happens AFTER the BM is past the toilet into the waste pipes.
QUESTION: The opening at bottom of bowl (inside the bowl, not where wax ring goes) appears to be the same size as my current toilet. Measurement was by shoving my fist into each opening (I know, I know). Do you ever "see" the BM not make it into that opening? Sometimes mine are so large they get stuck in the bowl. I guess that's just an issue that the Caroma can't solve.
Terry, thanks for the reply, especially as you were kind enough to repeat yourself (again) for me. I tried to steer my plumber to think about the clog in the toilet, not the issue of "movement" through the drain pipe. He touted a toilet that he uses at home, but refused to let me try that product out at his house.If you're plugging up normal bowls with your BM's, then installing product limited to a 2" trapway isn't solving the problem, is it?
I've sold a few hundred of the Caroma bowls, mainly to those with your issue.
MaP test works with 3/4" x 4" stools. If you need to flush something like a 2" stool, then the Carama is what you should be looking at.
If you're worried about water in the tank, the Carama has buttons at the top, hold one down until the entire tank drains. That's more like 3 gallons.

I had never heard of Caroma for this issue until discovering this website, and am grateful to have found about the brand and the insight (both the good and bad). I am zeroing in on theYou've got this.
I almost was wondering if he was going to offer clear toilets on a weekly basis for you to back up his belief that all toilets handled large BM's the same.
This is awkward, but...
