    I am short. 5" on a good day :) I want a standard or regular (low) height toilet with a 12 inch rough in that is skirted. I would really like a 3 inch valve but don't know how desperately important this is. But need trap glazed and would really like bowl glazed. I don't want to have to deal with clogged toilets. One piece toilet is my first choice, but will do 2 piece. Depth needs to be no more than 28 inches from wall, and preferably less. This toilet is going in my master bathroom tiny water closet, but we are remodeling and this is the last step.

    I have read tons of reviews and really want a toilet that I am not having to clean after bm due to streaking from a small water spot and for heavens sakes I don't think I should have to worry about aiming for that little water spot which I can't even see when I doing my job. LOL

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    TOTO Ultramax one-piece, standard height, non skirted, 12" rough, Sanagloss bowl finish, MS854114EG
    Drop a C100 Washlet on it. It has a premist to wet the bowl before use. It seems to keep things really clean.

    Most of the skirted stuff is 16-1/8" high.
    You may also want to consider a Squatty Potty to raise the foot position. It's a little step up for the feet.

    I know those have higher seats than you would prefer, but not the highest either.... (16 and 15.5 inch to the bowl rim, then add the seat height). I have no clue if they flush well. Is skirted a higher priority than seat height and known good flushing?

    How about this one: http://assets.totousa.com/product-files/SS-00236_CST416M.pdf 15.375 to the top of the bowl, and a known good flusher. Dual flush amount, depending which button you push.

    See https://terrylove.com/forums/index.php?threads/standard-height-help-please-no-ada.36958/ for some discussions from 2010.

    What Terry suggested. Those other two are off brand and I'd stay with the proven quality of Toto.

    I no longer am restricted to the depth as I am installing a pocket door so it opens more options for me. Those 3 are my priorities. My water closet is so tiny that a skirted will definitely make a difference, but really want short toilet with good flushing with glaze so I am not having to clean after every event. Any recommendation on kohler toilets?

    There is a finder in the left column. Select ADA=NO. Make any other selections. Then click on any of the results that you like the looks of. Then click "Dimensions and Measurements", and note the dimensions important to you.

    Understand that the prices you see are list prices, and not the prices you pay unless you buy it through a decorator etc.

    Once you have a candidate, try to find reports on flushing.
