UltraMax One Piece Round 1.6 GPF Toilet with G-Max Flush System - Seat Included
I ordered to of these Toto's in place of some strange toilets the builder put in when he first built our place 8 years ago. They have been in for three weeks now, and I have not had to plunger once...as opposed to the others that I was plunging every few days (2, 8 year old boys and a wife :) ).
Esthetically, they are quite nice. Their one piece design makes for easy clean up (see above, 2, 8 year old boys!), and the included seats are a nice bonus.
The other toilet I have is an American Standard Champion. With the upgraded flush valve, it also works quite well, although there first generation was not so reliable. It also seems to need to be much bigger due to the design of its 4 inch trapway. The Totos take up much less space.
The one element that I'm not so sure about is the tank lid, which actually just rests on top of the tank and is held in place with a velcro strip. This contributes to the perception that it is smaller, but I'm more used to the bigger lids which fit over and around the tank...also, the lid slopes so its not a great place to store anything.

Excellent low-flush toilet
Highly recommended. Nicely designed (looks small in bathroom compared to your old toilet) in one piece, which gives great stability. Low-flush (1.6 gallons per flush) saves a lot of water — only a few times have we had to flush twice to get the job done. Easy to keep clean. The self-closing seat is ok but not as good as the seat on an earlier Toto purchase 2 or 3 years ago. Don't know why.

The Ultramax was easy to install and the finish is beautiful. The 3" flush valve easily handles a large amount of waste. No backup problems to date. I was hesitant about the product being shipped such a long distance. However the Toilet and Sink that I ordered both arrived in great condition thanks to a great packaging job and individually delivered on a pallet.

Flush Value Mechanism Poorly Constructed
I've purchased several of these toilets and all of them develop leaky flush value mechanisms within months.
This must be due to a major design flaw or cheap components or planned obsolesce....
The toilet works well overall, but expect future headaches...

toto toilet is best out there
Loved this toto toilet so much after we had it --- we replaced a Kohler toilet with another toto toilet. It flushes good & is quiet.

Once you flush the toilet the water returns immediately and the seat closes just by touching it gently. I own two of these toilets!
