    Default Comfort height or Sanagloss?

    We are in the middle of a gut remodel/addition and never in my wildest dreams would I have thought it would take so long to decide on toilets......

    I'm set on Toto, dh not so much. But here are our requirements

    1.6 (a must for DH)
    elongated
    one piece (mostly because of made in USA)
    comfort height (mid 50s at this point, but this is hopefully our last home and I've heard this is so much easier as we age)
    Sanagloss (have read great things about it here and another forum)

    Thought I had decided on UltraMax, then realized I can't get both comfort height and Sanagloss on this one. The only option to fill all of our wants is the Ryohan, it is just so contemporary and squatty looking.

    So, which is more important to you? Comfort height or Sanagloss?

    The Ultramax II is comfort height with Sanagloss. It's a 1.28 Watersense
    It's one of my biggest sellers, and I have one for my master.

    If you want more water, the handle can be held down and it will drop about 3 gallons.

    Cheating by changing the flapper valve so it stays up longer would get you a 1.6g toilet, but that's just a waste of water! Go for the II, and if you decide you really need more water, there are easy ways to achieve that.

    Thanks guys, I will pass along this info. We put a Carolina II in the MIL apartment and he hates it, so I will tell him about holding the handle down and see if it helps.

    If a 2-1/8" trapway isn't working for him, perhaps he needs the Caroma's 3" trapway. Caroma has the largest trapway out there.
    For situations where there is a medical issue, it's what we recommend.

    If a toilet clogs, more water isn't going to help! A bigger pathway may be the needed solution. But, not all toilets are created equal, so one shouldn't condemn the 1.6/1.28g classes as a group.
