What's behind our toilet Ratings?

Experts at our National Testing and Research Center tested 46 models in toilets to see which ones perform best.
We look for:
  • Overall score
    Based on solid- and liquid-waste removal, bowl-cleaning at 35 pounds-per-square-inch (psi) water pressure, and noise.
  • Solid waste removal
    The ability to move simulated waste through the bowl and trap.
  • Noise
    Flush quietness without the seat.
  • Bowl cleaning
    How well flushing cleaned the bowl's front and sides.
  • Type
    G is gravity; P is pressure-assist.
  • Gallons per flush
    The amount of water used per flush, in gallons.

When shopping for a toilet, don't assume that a high price tag assures top performance. Among single- and dual-flush toilets, our top overall scorers were priced about midway in the group. Toilets are flushing away about 30 percent of all residential water in U.S. homes, so it's not surprising that water conservation remains a major issue.

Toilet buying guide

A toilet is a toilet, right? Well, no. Options include different heights, bowl shapes, styles, and flushing technologies. The best toilets also save water while still delivering worry-free performance. No need to flush twice to get the job done. No need to pay top dollar either. Among single- and dual-flush models, many of our top overall scorers were priced about midway in the group.
