The Saniflo Sanicompact Macerating Toilet:  Gives You a Half Bath With No Hassles!

  One thing that I’ve been remiss about is my lack of toilet reviews on macerating toilets. Most of you will not know what I mean when I say macerating toilet. Don’t feel ignorant, as there are probably even some plumbers who don’t know what that means. A macerating toilet is a toilet that has a pump and an impeller inside of the toilet itself or in a separate unit that is attached to the toilet. This pump and impeller serve to turn solid waste into a slurry that can then be pumped into a sanitary waste system, either a...

  Lately I’ve been reviewing a lot of high-end luxury toilets and I thought it was about time I reviewed a toilet that was really efficient, looked good but was also pretty affordable. This reminded me of the toilet I installed a few months ago called the American Standard H2optimum  elongated toilet. This toilet is very classy looking with a slim design tank, it does not cost an incredible amount, and it flushes well while being extremely efficient. Let’s take a look at this toilet and see if it might be the right one for...

The Sink Positive Toilet Sink: The Perfect Way to Add a Sink to that Tiny House, Cabin or Workshop!

  I recently came across a fascinating toilet product in a basement of a client of mine. I was in the basement looking at a water heater to see if it needed to be replaced or could be repaired and in a little room in the basement I found what can only be called a toilet sink! That’s right you read this correctly, a toilet sink. When I went upstairs I asked the customer to tell me about it had I was fascinated but I will what I learned. So I am going to do a review of this toilet sink which is made by Sink Positive in Greensboro...

The Toto Carlyle 2 High Efficiency One Piece Skirted Toilet is Sleek, Modern and Flushes Like a Dream!

  I had the opportunity to install a really unique toilet the other day. This was the Toto Carlisle to one piece high-efficiency toilet. This is a one piece toilet that not only looks unique but actually has a few features that make it unique in the marketplace. It is definitely a toilet for a customer who can afford the best but also wants to get a good value for their dollar. It’s very sleek, very modern and yet sculpted at the same time. The toilet runs about five to $600 depending on where you buy it so it’s not one of...

Kohler Adair One Piece Toilet In Thunder Gray Color:  Give Your Bathroom A Bit of Color!

  Recently I came across a fantastic Kohler toilet which I installed in a customers small powder room. That toilet was the Kohler Adair comfort height toilet. I decided to take a look online at it and found one in a color that is really in right now which is gray. Kohler actually calls the gray that they make thunder gray and seeing it caused me to decide to do a little review on this toilet because I really felt like it was a great value for the money. So let’s talk a little bit about the features of the cooler Adair comfort...

The Kohler Santa Rosa Toilet- Style, Great Flush, Eco Friendly…It Has It All!

So you want a luxury toilet. But what says luxury to you? In my experience as a plumber most people that want a high-end or luxury toilet are really looking for something that goes with the decor of their home. You can get a luxury toilet in a more classical style, you can get it in a very modern style with square edges, or you might want a mix of both, something with clean lines but that also has some curves. If that’s the case the Kohler Santa Rosa one piece  elongated toilet just may be the toilet for you. Let’s take at the a...

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

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...

The Niagara Stealth Elongated Toilet- 0.8 Gallons Per Flush Baby!  Eco Friendly Understatement!

I have decided since a lot of the toilets that are coming out on the market today are considered water conservation toilets that I would only write articles about toilets in the eco-friendly category that really were different or had something going for them that was pretty special. Because of this the first toilet that I have chosen to write about in this category is the Niagara Stealth  0.8 gallons per flush elongated toilet. This is going to be a very short sweet article that tells you why this toilet deserves to be reviewed in the first...

The American Standard Colony Round Front Toilet- Old Becomes New Again!
