Rialto One-piece Round Front Toilet with Seat and Left-Hand Trip Lever
Worst Toilet Ever
This toilet was recently installed in our home. I HATE IT.
1. The toilet is so low to the ground that trying to stand up after using it seems like a workout. This toilet is not elder friendly in the least.
2. The pressure is low for flushing -- you almost always have to flush twice.
3. If any parts need to be replaced you have to order the Kohler part and wait for it to come in. The parts from hardware stores--even if they say they fit Kohler All-in-One models--do not work. And who wants to wait 4-7 days to get their toilet to work again?
I do not recommend this model at all.

This is not worth the money. Performs poorly, because it does not flush everything down the toilet bowl. I have adjusted the water level to the highest level, with poor result. It is low and it is to wide to have a comfortable fit in old bathroom. I am always having problems with the water overflow, even after I adjusts it. I clean the diaphragm but still having recurrence of the water overflowing. I bought 2 of this toilet, and the same problem occurs with the other one. Very poor design. I have owned this for more than 3 years.

TRICK or Treat.
This is a nice looking product , but looks are not everything. I've had this Rialto for 10 years and it needs a larger diameter exit flow. I tried to order replacement parts and Kohler only has a conversion kit(84499) that converts it to a tank float valve unit for $100.One of the reasons I bought the unit was that it didn't come stock with the tank ball. Now after 10 years I have to buy the stupid tank ball and it doesn't work well. I am not a plumber, So I guess I need a plumber to tweak it to flush well.It keeps running and the flapper catches on the tank ball , even with an extended shank. If it needs a conversion it, that tells me that it is a poor design. Why can't Kohler make a decent replacement tank valve exactly like the original? I may be looking at another manufacturer for what I need.

Poor flush pressure
This toilet is nice and well made, but the low flow flush capacity does not thoroughly evacuate the contaminates using the single flush option, leaving a distinctive smell. I am considering replacing the toilet just for this reason.

Purchased in Sandbar (checked out color options at a local supply house). This is the smallest, modern looking, and attractive toilet with a front to back depth. It was installed so a door would clear the front edge. Delivery was quick... quicker than if I had ordered from a major national plumbing supply house. Thinking of purchasing another for my half bath.

This toilet did not show up the defect in the bowl till about a year ago. bought it in Aug. of 1997. Inside the bowl are hairline cracks that show up as if the toilet was dirty. It will not come clean with any product on the market.

I purchased this toilet in 2002 and have enjoyed it ever since. Not sure why the negative comments because I have nothing but praise...And I don't usually have good luck with things. I agree it does sit low but it doesn't bill itself as comfort height and I've never had any trouble with it flushing. My home was built in 1920 and the water pipes are not new, so even with low water pressure, it flushes great.
I bought this model due to space limitations and it fits perfectly.

Even at the 1.6 gal level, flushing action is poor. Depending upon the nature of the use, most times, 2 flushes are required. I would have paid extra for a power flush, but it was not offered in the design, color that I needed.

After 3 years, the fill valve starts spraying inside the tank lid and doesn't shut off .There are no replacement fill valves for this waste of time toilet.

Not that good
Very small and uncomfortable seat. It almost feels like a child seat.
