Toilet 1.28 GPF--Kohler vs American Standard

jwats612November 27, 2010

I am replacing an ancient toilet and prefer a water efficient model, because this toilet gets the majority of use. My choices are an American Standard Compact Cadet 3 , and a Kohler Kelston--I am limited by color choice.

American Standard seems to get slightly better reviews and has a longer warranty, but I suspect in the real world they are about the same.

Does anyone have a strong preference for either one?

How well have 1.28 GPF models worked?

I can only speak for the Cadet 3. It works very well. If its in your budget, a Toto Drake is the best toilet I have ever seen.

We bought a Kohler Cimarron at HD when it was on sale for $128. The prior American Standard, the kids clogged at regular intervals. So far with the Kohler it has not clogged once. So far I am impressed how much it can move with 1.28 gl.
