Won't Go There
Comment:
Despite low water pressure at our house, our pair of these work very well. The height is great for older folks though one short guest said she couldn't quite plant her feet on the floor.<br /><br />Unfortunately, not just any elongated seat will properly fit these toilets, however. The ones that came with our purchase were about 0.25 too narrow. I am speaking of the seat, per se, not the lid. American Standard (which I think was just sold, BTW) was very helpful, literally sending us ten or so free seats. None fit properly.<br /><br />We donated the surplus seats to Habitat for Humanity and mail ordered Toto seats from Amazon. Finally! Those fit perfectly.

Flushes like a boss - leaks like a sieve

Comment:
Flushes great, but I cannot get the tank to attach firmly to the bowl for fear of breaking the toilet, but it is good enough to function properly. The leak is with the flapper valve (different design than traditional) leaks from the tank to the bowl so the toilet has to keep filling itself up over time.<br /><br />Added height is nice, but I would probably look to another model unless these issues are fixed.
