Overall pretty happy
Has Never Clogged
Stays clean
Best Uses
I've previously only bought American Standard Champion 4 toilets. Those things are great. <br /><br />I bought a vacation home and wanted to replace all of the toilets. This home had an almond tubs, so I needed something not white. <br /><br />For the vacation home, I wanted a tall toilet with an elongated bowl. I also needed something in stock as I didn't want to wait on a special order. The only toilet that matched these requirements was the Kohler Highline classic in bone.<br /><br />I have had 2 installed since Sept 2012. So far, they've never been clogged. They work well. They aren't as loud as I had feared.

Takes Down Everything
Best Uses
I needed a toilet that could handle what a couple growing teenage boys could put in it. They kept clogging the other. Not this. Its a Champ! The pressure assist flush is awesome. One flush and gone. It might be a skosh loud compared to the standard swirling gravity fed models. But that is not a concern. Performance is. And thats what you get.
How long have you owned it:
Three-to-six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
