What's behind our toilet Ratings?

Experts at our National Testing and Research Center tested 32 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.
