My place of employment replaced all the toilets last year with new TOTO
wall mounted ones. I do not know the model and frankly am not
interested in getting down to floor level to find it.
On this newsgroup I have heard the praises of TOTO toilets sung and yet
find them to be awful toilets, at least in their flushing coverage
inside the bowl. Yes, they do deliver a strong flush but the water
never touches the back side of the bowl and you are always greeted with
someone else's leftovers when entering a stall.
Why would such a basic engineering necessity be ignored by the maker of
supposed superior toilets?
I recently had a Toto installed, a 1.6 gallon toilet. The flushing
performance is NOT impressive. My older 1.6 gallon Kohler did a much
The Toto is, as the OP states, very over-rated IMHO.
Please provide some sort of procedure I can use to ensure others eat
the types of food that do not leave residual matter on the inner wall
of a toilet. If that is not possible then perhaps some pointers on how
to prevent the fast-food eaters from entering the stalls might be
Models to maybe avoid. I have 2 Toto's and one has the max flush with
it's bigger flapper that I've had to replace twice over maybe a 4 year
period. Otherwise, no flushing problems. The bigger flapper is nicer
but I did not get another when I replaced last toilet.
Mine is the Toto UltraMax with the Toto Washlet. The toilet flush is
not especially good despite the larger flapper and 1.6 gallon tank. I
can't imagine that their models with the smaller tank can be any better.
Maybe your wall mounted model stinks, but my "Toto Ultimate One-piece"
is the best toilet I have ever had in my nearly 60 years on this
earth. It's a low-flow, leaves NO stains of any sort, ever, and has
yet to stop up once since I got it 4 years ago. I think I still own a
plunger, but I couldn't find it if my life depended on it. The high-
flow American Standard the Toto replaced could certainly not hold a
candle to the current toilet. It was always dirty and stopped up at
least 3 times a year. When we build an addition later this year, we
will be putting the same Toto model in the two new bathrooms.
