This coupled with a wide 3 inch trapway- the largest the industry can offer- it has the capacity of handling 70% more mass than the conventional toilets offered by the industry.

Water efficiency is achieved as it only uses 1.28 gallons of water in every flush. The water used per flush in the Cadet-3 is 20% less than the standard toilets, hence making it more environmentally friendly and saving you cost at the same time.

The sleek style and design of this toilet makes it really easy to clean.

Do you have a very small or narrow bathroom? Then look no further, the white angel has arrived - The American Standard Cadet-3 triangle toilet.

The triangular tank fits nicely in any corner, adding more leg space if you have a very narrow, small bathroom. Even though the triangular tank fits nicely in the corner of any bathroom, it will not be completely pushed up against the wall, however, it is very close and looks as if it was made for the room.

The Cadet-3 triangle toilet is a gravity assist toilet that uses 1.6 GPF. The tank holds enough water for more than the conventional 1.6 gallons of flush. The extra water in the tanks provides additional pressure for the normal flush so you can guarantee you will never see your droplets ever again.

Although it does not come with dual flush system, there is a little hack to get around this. If you require a light flush for your liquid waste, you can push lightly on the handle, but if you require a heavier flush for your solid waste, just push the handle harder and for longer.

Installation is fairly easy as it comes with all the necessary parts, except for the supply hose. Don’t worry if you don’t have any tools, as it comes with everything required.

What We Like:

  • Triangle shaped tank - saves room
  • Strong flushing power
  • Comfort seat height - better pooping experience
  • EverClean surface to resist mold, mildew, and more - minimal effort

What We Don't Like:

  • The triangular tank will not completely go flush against the wall
  • No toilet seat




Before American Standard was born, it was called Standard Sanitary, founded in 1875. Standard Sanitary was one of the first few to push the advancement of technology for bathroom products including one-piece toilets, built-in tubs, combination faucets and corrosion-proof chrome finishes. Standard Sanitary became the world's largest producer of bathroom fixtures in 1929.

That same year, the company merged with American Radiator Company to form the American Radiator and Standard Sanitary Corporation. The corporation was later renamed American Standard in 1967.
