Comment:
After fighting with these lousy toilets for 10 years I though I would be rid of them when I moved. Alas the new house had the exact same units. Sure enough the performance was just a dismal. I went out and purchased two new plungers to station next to the bowls. This year I replaced one with an American Standard Optum Vormax. This toilet Is literaly a Quamtum leap in performance and cleaning. The second toilet will be replaced shortly.

Comment:
I bought my home 7 months ago. We have 6 bathrooms and the single biggest complaint I have had is that the toilets clog constantly. I have 9 and 7 year old boys and I am so sick of hearing Mom! The toilet's plugged again! I finally decided something must be done so went to Consumer Reports to find a better toilet. After looking at the rankings I went to see which toilet is in my bathrooms and sure enough, they are the lowest ranked Mansfield Altos. No surprise. I will be replacing all 6 toilets immediately. Do yourself a favor, unless you want it for a planter in your garden, do NOT buy this toilet!
