1. American Standard Champion-4

Once I watched the Champion-4 flushes down tons of golf balls video, I was convinced that Champion-4 is the strongest flushing toilet. If you’re the type of person that get annoyed with marks on your toilet, then the flushing power of this beauty will not let you down.  

The best part of this toilet is that comes with a 10-year warranty on this model. 10 YEARS!

Furthermore, it is made in American, which means quality. But most importantly, this toilet doesn't clog or leak water, which in my opinion is what a great toilet should be. 


What We Like:

  • ADA Height
  • Super strong flush
  • WaterSense
  • EverClean surface

What We Don't Like:

  • Water Usage

2. GALBA Small Toilet

GALBA kills it on this toilet. The best feature of this toilet is that is it is so small that it can fit even in the tiny powder room. I’ve dealt with this model of toilet many times, and all I can tell you is that GALBAs' toilet does hit all my criteria for a toilet.

With the dual-flush system, GALBA uses 0.8 or 1.6 gallons per one flush. From my experience, the flushing power is sufficient to wash down those nasty masks. Speaking of dirty marks, GALBA small toilet has a glazed surface like most of the modern toilet, so it is hard to get dirty or crack. The only thing that I find quite amusing is that there is a Galba logo on the tank (see how they pride their product).

The toilet is smaller than a normal model, and thus it can save tons of saving in a small bathroom.

There are two problems I faced when I was installing one of this toilet in my client’s project. One was the tank lid wobbles a little, and the other was the toilet seat moved even when I tightened the seat. However, the customer service of this company was extremely helpful and gave me some amazing tips.

What We Like:

  • Self-cleaning glazed surface
  • Dual flush - 0.8/1.6
  • Soft-close toilet seat
  • Great customer support

What We Don't Like:

  • The lid may rock a bit
  • There is a logo on the tank

3. Saniflo 023 SANICOMPACT 48

Ok, don’t be scared by the price tag. This cutie has the high price for a reason.

Saniflo is a sanitary ware company that is famous for making up flush toilets, A.K.A super strong flushing toilet. Usually the Saniflo toilets are quite big; however, Sanicompact does the exact opposite. Its size is super tiny and can save you a lot of space.

And how can a Saniflo toilet be a Saniflo toilet without having the upflush ability? Sanicompact can flush your feces up 9-feet vertically and 100-feet horizontally, so if you want to have a bathroom under your pipeline or in a loft/attic, then this is your number one choice.

What’s more impressive is that Sanicompact only uses 1 gallon of water when flushing.

From what I’ve tested, this toilet is easy to install like any other toilet, and it fits small bathroom quite well.

What We Like:

  • Tiny
  • Upflush system
  • Able to connection to sink
  • Use 1 Gallon per flush
  • Cool design

What We Don't Like:

  • Quality issue

4. Swiss Madison Square Toilet

Oh, yeah, it’s a square toilet. Finally something exciting. Although most people like the elongated shape of toilets, sometimes my clients force me to show another option. And here you go.

Swiss Madison offers a sleek outlook and a unique design. Personally, I think it looks way better than the Duravit.

Another cool feature of this toilet is that the toilet seat isn’t bolted to the bowl, so it is super easy to remove. Thus you can save a lot of time cleaning the toilet. Also, the seat is soft-close.

The water usage is quite normal, 0.8 and 1.28 gallon per flush, and the flushing power is also very nice.

The dimensions of this toilet are 27 x 14.3 x 29.5 inches, and it weighs 104 pounds. Small and cute.

What We Like:

  • Tiny
  • Upflush system
  • Can be connected to the sink
  • Use 1 Gallon per flush
  • Cool design

What We Don't Like:

  • Toilet seat is not bolted to the bowl

5. Woodbridgebath T-0019 w/ Soft Closing Seat

As I mentioned in the article, a good toilet only needs three things, good flush, good looks, and a comfortable seat. Obviously, this model has it all, but other toilets also have the same function, so how does this one stand out?

The first thing is the sleek style that compliment with lots of bathroom design.

The second will be the silent flush. It is so powerful and can kill anything you dump into the bowl. Also, the toilet has the Water Sense label, so the water usage is eco-friendly.

Last but not least, it is super easy to install, and a quite-close toilet is included when you purchase this toilet.

With the dual-flush system, the water usage is 1.0/1.6 gallon per flush, resulting average 1.28 gallon per flush.

What We Like:

  • Easy-to-Clean Design
  • Dual Flush System Design
  • Comfort Height Design
  • High-end Soft Closing Seat with Stainless Steel Durable Seat Hinge
  • 5-year warranty

What We Don't Like:

  • Flushing power
  • Heavy
  • Installation

What Is A One-Piece Toilet?

If the toilet and tank are fused together without any joints, then the toilet is known as one piece toilet. It is also known as single piece toilet.

If the toilet and tank are separate and joined using fittings, then it is known as the two-piece toilet. It is also called as coupled toilets.

One-Piece Toilet Advantages

I was bothered by this question for a while, and even wrote a post talking about the difference between the two and one piece toilet types. Since one-piece toilet has almost identical functions with two-piece toilet, then why should customers choose a one-piece instead of a two-piece toilet? Especially when the price of a one-piece toilet is generally higher than a two-piece toilet.

Ok, let us understand how one-piece toilet came to the world. In 1885, Thomas Twyford built the first one-piece toilet; however, neither design or function were nowhere near modern toilets. It already had the U-shape trap design, but the tank was hung high on the wall like a pull-chain toilet.

Fast forward to now. One-piece toilets have these amazing functions:

  • check
    Easier to install - due to its one-piece design, the owner or the plumber doesn’t need to tighten the tank to the bowl anymore.
  • check
    Small on size - To be honest, the one piece toilet can only save you a few inches; however, if you pick the wall hung model, the tankless design can save you tons of space.
  • check
    Easier to clean - Without the crevice or the joint between the water tank and bowl, the one piece toilets are way easier to clean compared to a two-piece toilet.
  • check
    Less maintenance - It is because the single piece toilet’s tank and bowl are fused together, so there’s less chance to break down.
  • check
    Less shipping problem - I know this may come as a surprise to many people. Common sense is that closed-up toilet is usually heavier compared to a two-piece toilet. However, the plus side of this kind of toilet is that it is shipped as a whole product. Unlike a two-piece toilet that needed to be sent separately, and often time causes a lot of problem along the way.
  • check
    Comfort height - Usually, the bowl sit is at 17 inches than 15 inches

But of course, a coin has two side. The disadvantages include:

  • check
    Price
  • check
    Heavy
