2-Piece Toilet Design

The toilet is a 2-piece toilet which has both advantages and disadvantages. To begin with the benefits, 2-piece toilets like the tend to be less expensive than are their 1-piece counterparts. Many 2-piece toilet models from also come in a wider variety of size and height options as you mix and match various components such as the tank and internal flushing mechanisms. For the installer of ‘s toilet, the 2 piece installation is a bit slower but the lighter weight of each component as well as the easier access to maneuver parts for installation makes it an easier install according to the pros.

Floor Mounted Toilet by American Standard

This model of the is floor-mounted, which is the most common type of toilet. The floor mounted design means that the will sit on your bathroom floor, bolted into the sub-floor. We recommend paying special attention to the toilet rough-in (distance between the center of the drain pipe and the wall) of your existing application before choosing a floor mounted toilet as this will affect the ease (or difficulty) of installation. Note that the has a rough-in of inches.

Exposed Trapway Design

The features an exposed trapway which makes for easier installation than you’d have with hidden trapway toilets. While we love the ease of install with American Standard exposed trapway toilets, we also sometimes love the style of toilets with hidden trapways.

Standard Height American Standard Toilet

American Standard’s is a standard height toilet. While not ADA Compliant, standard height toilets are still very popular as comfort height (ADA compliant) toilets are sometimes viewed as being less comfortable and, well, ergonomically correct.
