It unclogged with a single plunge..no snake required. I probably could have
flushed again and it would have been fine, but was used to using the plunger
on the older toilet, so... Go with the bigger one...it may look strange,
but it's more comfortable.
The bathroom this one is going in is very small (the original Champion would
literally look like a throne in this room), so the smaller toilet should be
a better fit. Except for the higher tank, it's pretty much the same size as
the one that's in there now. The seat will be slightly higher, which should
also be better. If it works out well, we have a bigger bathroom that can
take the bigger toilet. Thanks again. Amazing how common this problem is...
We've had two for a few months. They've never needed to be flushed more
than once, and they don't strike us as noisy. On one, the seal on the
"plunger" kept leaking, but AS sent a package of new ones free.

All I can tell you about the Champion is that I installed one in my
plumbing class and played around with it, and it flushes very quickly
and very forcefully. It does have a good reputation for reliable
flushing according to the master plumber instructor. They are expensive.
They list for about $400 and sell for about $260 depending on where you
