Question about Home
1). Priority is a 17" wide tank. (No wall mounted units - too invasive for our older home). 2). 16" - 16.25" tall bowl height. 3). GPF of 1.6 (gallon per flush) 4). Gravity (no assist). Installed on 2nd flr. 5). 3"-4" flush valve 6). Large diameter + smooth coated trapway/colon. My husband installed a new 1.6 gpf. However with a "Chair Height" 17" tall bowl, it's way too tall for either one of us to be seated comfortably. Don't want to make the same mistake twice. Which make/model will fit our criteria without breaking the bank? *Note: our 1st flr 1/2 bath has a Kohler Cimarron that we just love, (the 4" valve is awesome) but the tank is too wide for our 2nd floor application! (Do overs are never fun). Anyone reading this... please! do yourselves a HUGE FAVOR... find a showroom and actually SIT on various height models to find the height that is most comfortable for you. Afterall, you wouldn't buy a mattress without testing it 1st. Same holds true for one of the most used fixtures in your home, you'll be enjoying it for years, it's worth your time, you'll be very glad you did!
I replaced the 2nd floor toilet in my house several years ago. It has all the features you require, except the 17" tank width. If you can fit a 20" tank ( actually 19 3/4") then the brand to buy is Toto. The quality is unsurpassed.
The (included) *seat* height is 16 1/8". GPF is 1.6, but the flush is amazingly powerful. I opted for the special self cleaning coating they call "Sana Gloss". Nothing sticks to it, it doesn't stain, and I've never had to use a toilet brush nor bowl cleaner on it the whole time I've owned it.
I bought mine from an online distributor. Just Google "Toto". I haven't checked recently, but they may have a narrow tank model. Mine has the extended bowl.
