I've almost completed my bathroom remodel and I'm looking for a toilet. We are thinking about installing a one piece, low volume, 1.6 gallon unit. Anyone have one of these? Manufaturer recommendations? I've read that Kohler makes a quality toilet.
Oh, I just remembered, a friend of mine, wife had to have this low silloette one piece toilet. It never flushed properly because the tank was too low. He became known as the double flusher and plunger guy.
All I know, it cost over 400 bucks in the early 80's and he put in a standard with elongated bowl. With in a couple of years. Now he is back to a single flush and no plunger. They do look nice, but its a place to poop in.

Power Assisted - Power LiteTM The only toilets with horsepower, KOHLERŽ Power Lite toilets deliver the industry's most powerful residential flush. These toilets feature a .2-HP pump to provide outstanding flushing action. Additionally, an exclusive Twin TouchTM actuator allows users to select either a 1.0-gallon or 1.4-gallon flush, depending on their individual needs. This dual-flush option can save an average household approximately 2,000 gallons of water each year.

Not to change the subject in the middle of such an exciting exchange of views, but what's the big deal about elongated toilet bowls? I see a lot of these advertised. Does the shape allow you to squeeze more payload into each flush, or what?

The elongated bowl, allows older folks like festus and his MIL, a little extra room. I have installed them in both my bathrooms, so they will be handy when I am as old as Festus, and I don't think I will ever be that heavy.
Darn, wish I had been watching this from the start - too funny. But maybe I could have put in my 2cents worth too, my daughter just got back from Kohler, WI for a seminar on Kolher products. She is the showroom manager for Northrup Supply in Oneonta and sells LOTS of toilets during the year - we call her the "Potty Queen".
You just can't fix stupid.
I bought a Kohler. Quality stuff! I know this sounds stupid butt the design/technology has improved greatly. We purchased a chair height model. Its seat is 17 in off the floor. You probably wouldn't like that.
