    Default Floor-Mount Rear-Discharge Guidance

    I've reviewed and re-reviewed the reviews and am now looking for guidance from someone in the know...

    What would you recommend for a floor-mount, rear-discharge, elongated-bowl, watersense-approved toilet?

    Thanks for your suggestions!

    You could use a Gerber 21-310 with the 1.1 gallon tank.

    Do not get the dual flush tank. They quit working in six months.

    Thank you - this seems to nail it.

    Am curious -- why recommend the 1.1 over the 1.6? Is there a bowl clean advantage to either? (will be an issue with my wife). Also, Are both considered Watersense approved?

    Thanks again for your help - very much appreciated.

    The 1.6 tank is not Watersense approved.

    The 1.1 is.

    For what it's worth, the 1.1 gallon tank Gerber uses is a variation of the dual flush using the same tank and handle/actuation mechanism. The only difference is that it's a single flush with reduced volume.
