Toto Clayton

Truth.

The Dartmouth, Clayton, Carrollton, Plymouth, Soiree, Guinevere are all good working models with a more traditional style.

I bought a Dartmouth from Terry last fall and it is fantastic, but you should consider all of the models you mentioned to find which will fit your decor.

Dartmouth - streaks left in potty, any solutions?

We bought the Dartmouth to replace a really old toilet because the tank cracked and the bowl needed to be resurfaced.

Though I really like the look of the Dartmouth and the fact that it uses less water I am disappointed because streaks :eek:are left in the potty (below waterline) after flushing. Our old toilet did not have this problem. I think it is gross and potentially embarrassing :eek:. A second flush does the trick after a minute or two but this defeats the purpose of saving water.

:confused:Is there not enough pressure, do we need more water in the tank?
Any suggestions?

Thank you, Sunny Bunny:)

You can't really compare a "really old toilet" to anything made since 1992.
Nothing uses more than 1.6 gallons anymore.
The amount of water in the old bowls left no chance of streaking.
For some weird reason, the bowls do get better with use.
Does anyone know why?

I have not had much streaking in my Dartmouth. We alway keep a brush by the side of the toilet, and when we do get an occasional streak, it's quick and easy to give it a quick brush and flush. I think what Terry was getting at is that low flow toilets may have more streaking problems that the old full flow units because of the smaller amount of water. I don't know that you can put the blame on one particular model or brand. I wonder if the cleaner with Teflon might be a help in keeping the streaking down? :confused: It would be worth a try.

Think seriously about the Soiree or Guinevere -

both have the newfangled "Cyclone" bowl wash -
2 BIG jets of water right under the rim which really do wash the bowl down, coupled with the great Toto flush.

I have a Soiree and wouldn't trade it for anything else.
