    Default TOTO Ultramax Eco version MS854114EL 1.28 GPF

    bought a Toto Ultramax ADA height from you a few weekends ago (well not you exactly, one of your workers). The toilet is amazing - thanks!

    Question Ultra-Max to Eco Max?

    Just received Ultramax to install 1.6g. If I put a brick in the tank, would it work like an EcoMax?

    No. The tank never empties, so placing the brick there does nothing.
    The Eco version has a weighted flapper.

    Has anyone had experience with the Utramax II ADA? I have read many good things about the UltraMax but the only place I have seen anything about the UltraMax II is in Consumer Report and they did not like it. Thanks.

    I have a couple of those (Ultramax II) in my home. Great toilets! If I had to buy another toilet right now, that's exactly what I would get (unless I win the lottery and decide to get the $3000 Toto!)

    The Ultramax II has the "double cyclone" bowl wash, and a great flush. It is actually kind of amazing to watch it effortlessly remove just about anything you can send its way.

    i got the one-piece model and like the look of it and the lack of a gap between tank and bowl. The "MaP" figures show a better capacity for the two-piece, but I haven't had any trouble with the one-piece units getting clogged.

    I sell a lot of the Ultramax II toilets, and they work great. I have one in my main bath.
    CR put a plug in the toilet they shot video of. Any plumber that sees the CR video will tell you, they plugged the toilet, and then shot the video.
    My question is why? Their lawyers have already sent me letters asking me to quit reviewing plumbing products, but guess what, I think a plumber should review plumbing products. I've been in the plumbing business since 1974, it only makes sense.

    Here is a video of how my Ultramax II works.

    Terry,
    Do you think an Ultramax toilet and a Blooming Bidet Model NB-R1060 (both elongated), would be a
    good combination?

    Yes, that combination would work out well.

    Renovation complete, installed Ultramax Saturday.. not impressed. Plunger was out day #2 .
    (couple extra flushes, bowl filled to the rim..)
    Someone earlier commented the flush was pathetic, I'd have to agree. Does not last long enough to flush the "waste".
    The stoppage was not the result of anything extra ordinary at all....

    You probably have a partial blockage somewhere downstream from the toilet - perhaps even the wax ring intruding on the toilet flange.

    These toilets are very well engineered - the flush volume is designed to only allow part of the water in the tank to enter the bowl, and it comes in quickly, so it can seem like the amount of time and water is not enough - but it certainly is.

    The toilet needs be pulled and the cause of the blockage found out. It's not the toilet's fault.

    It can depend on the paper used. Charmin has issues I know.
