Has anyone replaced their toilet lately and which brand or model has worked out for you? The Rialto is a one piece type. I have no experience with toilet replacement.
Just replace mine recently. Watch out for the low flush units (all nowdays).
They come with your choice of 2 flushes. One for number 1 and the other for number 2.
Worse thing I noticed is to conserve water, the water level in the bowl is much lower. Visualize your bowl as a lake. Now pretend there is a drought and the water level is lower. This is a problem.
The bowl gets dirty much sooner, than before. Have to clean much more often.
This problem was mentioned on I think, "Ask this old house".
Flushing is no problem. Just the lower water level.
The bad part is , you will not realize there is an issue, until after you have installed the toilet.
Then it to much work, to take it out, return it, and look for a model that does not have this problem.
