    I think wjcandee is on to something. I suspect the reps were trying to push another brand. Perhaps they were sponsored by a competitive brand.

    I don't think removing the toilet when you move would be a good idea. Especially since the landlord shelled out the $$ for the toilet you want to replace. It sounds to me like the landlord owns the current toilet. Perhaps if you really want it removed you can suggest that the landlord put it in another unit (if there is another unit that can use it), rather than you getting rid of it. Since you don't actually own that toilet, it is up to the landlord to find a new home for it.

    Sure the landlord knows you and probably trusts you, but things can happen in landlord/tenant relationships and you don't want to end up being accused of stealing the toilet should anything go south at sometime in the future. I'm not saying that will happen, but sometimes you never know.

    So, I take it that you really want to get a new toilet instead of trying a movable platform or step or something?

    Maybe you could talk to your landlord about something like that in lieu of going to the trouble of taking out the toilet and replacing it.

    Ultimately its up to you on whether or not it is worth it to do that though. Well, and obviously your landlord will have a say in things.

    You state that the toilet is too tall for you.
    Get a couple of 2x4's, a piece of plywood and build yourself a step.

    Crap! suceress beat me to it.

    LOL. Well, it looks like there is a second vote for a step. :-)

    I've thought about a step or a heavy bamboo mat, though due to the way my small bathroom is set up, I'd have to step up onto every time I walked into and out of the bathroom. Kind of annoying.

    What I have right now is a Champion 4 Max, and I have to say it flushes great, and it's totally efficient and quick. Surprising how many arguments there are about it on this forum. (The design isn't great looks-wise, though.)

    Honestly, I should have kept my rusty old one. Didn't think about all the factors that could make a new toilet a big pain.
