I currently have two toilets that I need to replace. One appears to have an 11 inch rough in and the other has a 12 inch rough in. My current toilets clog up a little bit too easily. The one with the 11 inch rough in I don't use it all because it clogs constantly. My question, what should I replace it with? Elongated? Round? American Standard? Koehler? I basically just don't want to deal with clogs anymore. Help!

Unless there is a reason that you absolutely need a round bowl, like the door will hit it, go with the elongated in almost every circumstance. It is more comfortable and it doesn't take up as much room as people think. We have a variety of Toto Toilets, some of which are the more expensive versions, and some of which are the more affordable versions. All of them work exceptionally well and the quality of the workmanship is truly excellent. If I lived in the state of Washington, I would not even think twice about just calling Terry and having him install my toilets, because he does exceptional work for a very reasonable price. And he throws in extras that other people don't, like replacing the connector hose and sometimes the stop valve on the wall, so that everything works flawlessly. We have two of the Toto Drake toilets to which Terry refers. They are excellent flushers, and well made for a good price. They have a well-deserved reputation as being the ones that allow you to throw away your plunger.

You're right in Terry's backyard. His prices on Totos are very reasonable, less than MSRP, so that's a plus. I live over the hill in Yakima, but it was a not brainer me to drive over and pick my toilets up from him. Well, actually I met him in Ellensburg and took delivery on my second one so that was added plus.
Hey, wait a minute.

This is awkward, but...
