    Kohler Highline® K-3999 Toilet Review, Comments and pictures

    The Kohler Highline® K-3999 comes with a taller comfort height bowl, elongated with a 1.28 GPF tank that meets the WaterSense requirements.

    The fit and finish looks pretty good from here. Was there any notable defects or issues?
    Would like to get my hands on one of these to test out but nobody but the big box sells Kohler in this area.

    I also see they're using a PRO45 now.

    I'm not sure that the red cap necessarily means that it's a PRO45 anymore. See this link: http://www.homedepot.com/h_d1/N-5yc1...1#.UPIPQydtUj0

    There you have a Gen-u-ine "Kohler"® OEM "Class 5® fill valve" with a red-ish cap for only 250-percent of the HD® price of a regular Fluidmaster® 400A®.

    And what does the yellow cap mean on the Cimarron® K-3887? I'm sure Fluidmaster® would make Kohler® a Mauve fill valve cap with glitter if they wanted it. It's all marketing...

    After I saw the yellow cap on the Cimarron in the other post I thought that maybe it's really not a PRO45. Kohler is all about marketing and looking pretty. Makes sense why no supply house will carry them around here. I do like the way that Highline/Wellworth looks though.

    I'm baffled with Kohler.......The Class 5 lacked in bowl wash, so they made the Class 6 which was a great improvement. Why have they now designed all their bowls with the Class 5 system instead of the Class 6? Why was the Class 6 only regulated for the Cimmaron toilets?

    The tank to bowl contraption and flush tower for the Highline looks smaller now. I wonder if a generic standard flapper assembly can be substituted in its place?

    Also, what was wrong with the Ingenium flush? It worked pretty well in my opinion and it totally rinsed the bowl. Yes, it did clog if you use a lot of TP, but if you use a lot of TP, you can clog any toilet.
