As you shop for a new toilet, there are a few things you’ll want to consider along with style. We’ve listed the main features and amenities here, but you can also refer to the glossary for additional definitions of terms.
One-piece toilets integrate tank and bowl into a seamless, space-saving design that is easy to clean. Some low-profile models can be installed under a vanity extension when space is at a premium. Because of their special design detail, most one-piece KOHLER toilets ship with a complementary Quiet-Close™ toilet seat with Quick-Release™ functionality.
Two-piece toilets feature the traditional design of a separate tank and bowl. Two- and three-bolt installation systems provide a sturdy, level connection between the tank and bowl, making installation easy.
Compact elongated one-piece toilet designs enable an elongated bowl to fit in a round-front space.
Elongated bowls provide added room and comfort for adults. These will have the abbreviation “EB.”
Round-front bowls require less space and are good for small children. These are also referred to as “plain bowls” with the abbreviation “PB."
Comfort Height toilets, approximately 2 inches taller than traditional toilets, make sitting down and standing up easier. Toilets that measure between 17 and 19 inches in height from the floor to the top of the seat are considered Comfort Height toilets, whereas traditional toilets measure below 17 inches in height. Many Comfort Height toilets are also ADA-compliant when installed per the applicable guidelines.
From 1.6 to 0.6, the KOHLER toilet offering features a range of gallons-per-flush options to meet your household’s needs. If you’re searching for a high-efficiency toilet to save water and reduce monthly water bills, we offer water-saving toilets in both gravity-fed and assisted-flush models.
We offer multiple flushing technologies to meet the needs of different homes and bathrooms – standard single-flush, dual-flush and assisted-flush. You can choose from any one of our flushing options and expect the same great performance.
Most toilets have an exposed trapway that's often hard to clean because of its location behind the bowl. Toilets with a concealed trapway feature a smooth surface at the back of the toilet where the trapway would normally be visible. Skirted trapways go a step further and offer a clean line from front to back. Both concealed and skirted trapways simplify cleaning.
