Best Toilet Reviews: My Top 5

My Top 5 Best Toilet Picks: Full Reviews

Girl With Wrench brings you toilet reviews: by a real plumber with actual, honest opinions! To get us started, I've reviewed my top 5 picks in the Value and Mainstream price ranges. All reviews in this post are based on my OWN EXPERIENCE.  In the future, I may review items I have not personally used but know that ​I WILL NEVER PUT ANY PRODUCTS ON MY SITE THAT I WOULD NOT TRY MYSELF!  Yes, the plan is to make a few dollars from this site, so if this concerns you, please see my full disclosures

Each of the models reviewed here was selected for the following reasons:

  • Demonstrated, excellent performance
  • Proven longevity without requiring service
  • Made by a quality manufacturer who has been around for years and stands behind their products
  • Popular enough that by the time the unit may require service, parts should still be readily available
  • All are two piece with transitional styling—easiest to install, and blend well with any decor

 

So let's get to it! Here are my top 5 picks (click on the model name for full info on each):

NOTE: Before buying any toilet, check out our Toilet Basics page to determine the configuration you need.  Make sure to measure for your rough in; putting in the wrong size rough-in is asking for leaks and problems down the line!

Toto Drake Main Silver Wrench Value; Workhorse Also:
Sanagloss Better Mousetrap

 

 

Eco-Drake Green Wrench Value
Proven reliability and performance, not only in flushing but all the "secondaries" like washdown. Drake is about as good as it gets.
Kohler Cimarron Main Bronze Wrench; Workhorse; Best Bang

Wide range of color choices

Also: 

High Efficiency Green Wrench Value

Class 6 Flush

Classic lines, all models are comfort height. Superior flushing at a "can't beat it" price
American Standard Champion Main Bronze Wrench; Workhorse

Also:

High Efficiency Green Wrench Value

You can't go wrong with a Champion—it'll flush just about anything. Put it in and forget about it.
Toto Carusoe Value Bronze Wrench; Workhorse   What I would buy in Value range. This baby is all Toto—best flushing in class, for years and years to come.
American Standard Colony Value Bronze Wrench; Workhorse; Best Bang FitRight models save space Truly a “Best Bang”–you won't get better performance and longevity at this price anywhere

 

Additional Note: While GirlWithWrench is good at many things, hand coding script queries for an SQL database is not among them. So while the web guru sets up the infrastructure for a full searchable database system, we will have to make do with this format. Sorry to make you dig through it all to find the info you need!
