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 Swiss Madison

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.

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 Swiss Madison exposed trapway toilets, we also sometimes love the style of toilets with hidden trapways.

Standard Height Swiss Madison Toilet

Swiss Madison’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.
