Toilet for basement bathroom

Posted by hedygs (My Page) on

I am needing to purchase a good toilet for a basement bathroom which will be used infrequently. I am thinking when it will get used it will be by a group of young college men.

I was hoping to get away with a good toilet but not too expensive. We do have a Toto ultramax that we like alot but didn't want to spend that much.

I know the Champion Cadet 3 can be purchased at a Big Box Store and that would make it easier but what is the consensus on this toilet?

Oh we prefer a more contemporary look rather then vintage. Thanks for any input you may give.

I would recommend one with elongated bowl and wide trap since you say the user will be young men.

Toto was the first to design a working flush solution to the low water usage problem. Since, other major manufacturers have come along. I know Kohler and American Standard receive good marks.

Search Terry Love's site as I believe he rates quite a few brands there.

Thanks! Want to go with the elongated bowl for sure. I want to keep the cost down and considered the Drake II but it only comes in ADA height and I don't want that. Some of our visitors are pretty short. :)
