Feature Review

1-Piece Design

The toilet is a 1-piece toilet which has its advantages and disadvantages. To begin with the benefits, 1-piece toilets like the are considered to have sleeker, more modern designs to them. Many 1-piece toilet models from are also more compact than their 2-piece counterparts. For the installer of ‘s toilet, the 1 piece installation is faster, although the toilet itself tends to be heavier and more difficult (thus more expensive to hire a pro). But for whoever is cleaning this beauty, 1-piece toilets tend to be easier to keep clean.

Floor Mounted Toilet by KOHLER

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 12 inches.

Skirted (Hidden) Trapway Design

The features a hidden trapway (also known as a skited trapway) design which we think have the most moden and sleek designs of KOHLER toilets. That said, you’re installer may charge quite a bit more as skirted trapway toilets can be trickier to install if there are no access panels.

Comfort Height KOHLER ADA Compliant Toilet

KOHLER’s is a comfort height toilet, also known as an ADA compliant toilet. The seat of comfort height toilets sits a bit higher than that of standard height toilets. This makes sitting down and standing up much easier to do. We will mention that that comfort height toilets are sometimes negatively reviewed as the height can cause numbness in the legs of children and shorter people. Not to mention that a lower seat is more ergonomically beneficial to accomplishing number two:-)
