Ummm, no, they don't. I've installed a few and encountered many -
none of the Totos had objectionable noise. Terry Love's site
specifically mentions that the Toto toilets are quiet.
What are you talking about? Toilets flush for a few seconds. Little
kids can sleep through a hurricane. It's also common to place toilets
in these little tiled rooms called "bathrooms". They have doors that
close on the bathrooms, and the doors are usually closed when someone
is doing their business. It is simple courtesy to flush when someone
is done with their business. This is usually done with the door still
closed. If someone adheres to the "If it's yellow, let it mellow"
doctrine, then some flushes will be eliminated (unintentional pun),
and there will be no noise.
Read any or the reviews on Toto toilets _anywhere_. People love the
things. Amazon doesn't have a single review that's at all negative.
Check this out:
"The UltraMax consistently receives high ratings, with perfect and
near-perfect scores given for performance, ease of installation and
With its three-second flush, the TOTO UltraMax toilet thoroughly
cleans the bowl without leaving behind any remnants. This easy-to-
assemble toilet with its G-Max flush is the most powerful toilet
around. Engineers, consumers and plumbers alike repeatedly give the
TOTO UltraMax high marks for its "deceptively powerful flush" and
"clog-free performance." The soft-close seat also receives kudos for
eliminating the loud clanking associated with a dropped toilet seat. "
I think you've got the Toto mixed up with another toilet. The Toto's
aren't pressure-assisted - those are the noisy ones. You also forgot
to mention the soft-close seat - that eliminates the loudest noise.
Agreed. My Toto is so quiet I can't tell if it flushed or not. Fortunately,
the thing is perfect and always flushes absolutely everything. I've never
needed a second flush for anything. When we add an addition to our home next
year both new bathrooms will have Toto toilets.
Not to interrupt your love affair with Toto, but it has one defect:
The bowl doesn't fill sufficiently with water thus you tend to get
skid marks. Probably the only way to avoid these with any toilet is to
buy a good old-fashioned 5 gallon-er.
