The Toto Entrada Round Front 1.28 Gallon Per Flush Toilet- Great Toilet, Great Price!

The mid-priced toilet market is the category that I really like to recommend to my customers. You get a lot of the features of a luxury toilet but the price is much less due to the fact that stylistically the toilets are usually more normal-looking. In other words they’re not going to look like an ultramodern sleek fancy toilet but you get all the actual flushing features of the ultramodern, sleek, fancy toilets. One of my favorite models is the Toto Entrada. The model number is CST 243EF-01,  for those of you who want to look it up on Google or Amazon. This little toilet pretty much trips all my triggers when it comes to a toilet that I would recommend to my plumbing clients. Let’s take a look at the features of this little beauty.

The first thing that you will notice is that this toilet is a round front toilet, however it actually does have some stylistic features that remove it from the category of boring or dull. The rim of the toilet is at around 17 inches which does make it a chair height or comfort height toilet and this along with the very slim design of the tank makes this a very nice-looking toilet. This also makes the toilet qualify as ADA compliant so you can use it in commercial settings.

This toilet uses tote toes Emax flushing system, a high-efficiency fill valve that is rated at 1.28 gallons per flush. That qualifies it for the Cal green program in California and makes it a water sense qualified toilet nationally.

The Entrada is a very fast flushing toilet due to its 3 inch wide flush valve. This flush valve is 125% larger than a conventional 2″ flush valve toilet. This really helps with the ability of this toilet to flush solids, as the 3″ flush valve allows more water to drop more quickly into the bowl of the toilet, evacuating waste much more quickly.

The water surface in the bowl of the toilet is actually quite large at 8 3/8 inches wide by 10 1/2 inches long. This also means that the bowl is going to be cleaner than compared with smaller toilets the other thing that I like about this toilet is that it has a 2 1/8 inch trap that has been computer designed to carry solids more efficiently.

So to summarize, what you get with the Toto Entrada round front toilet is the best of both worlds. You get a very sleek, slim round front toilet that is the price of some more expensive toilets, but it gives you all their features in a really nice price point. You get the 3 inch flush valve, the larger trap way, the eco-friendly 1.28 gallons per flush and you get it all for under $200. This is definitely one of my pics in the mid-priced toilet range.

On Amazon this toilet only gets a 3.8 stars out of five rating. But I really have to completely disagree and in my opinion this is at least a 4 1/2 start toilet. I’ve installed quite a few of these toilets and I’ve never had a single call back yet. Some people seem to not realize that this toilet does not include the seat, and so they have given it a bad review. In my view that is the consumer’s fault for not checking to see what is included with this toilet.

As always I will leave a link at the bottom of the page that you can paste into your browser that will lead you to the Toto Entrada’s page on Amazon. Keep in mind that if you do buy a product based on the link that I give you I will receive a small commission from Amazon as a way of thanking me for my content and article. This does not increase the cost that you pay at all, it just rewards me for my original content and articles directing you to their site. Have a great day and once again thank you for reading my reviews. Bye-bye now.
