It is not 1.6 toilets that have problems it is cheap poorly designed
toilets that have problems. Many of the early models were not well

need to pump up to the sewer.
BTW cheap does not always mean inexpensive. Some of the most expensive
models that look neat are poorly made and designed.
Look for a large fully glazed trap. Many people like the American
Standard Cadet series, but even there check the trap size as they are not
all the same in that series.
