Toto Aquia Dual Flush Toilet Review

The big draw on this toilet is that you have the option to use .9 gallons or 1.6 gallons per flush. Button 1 for #1, button 2 for #2. Seems like a great concept and saves thousands of gallons of water per year, but does it work?
I’ve been a fan of Japanese manufacturing ever since my parents bought a 1989 Toyota Cressida when I was 16 (I’m 35 so you don’t have to do the math). I’ve heard great things about Toto product for years but had zero personal experience with them. So, when I was getting ready to specify this toilet for a custom home I was building I thought it best to try one for a while so I could make sure they work as advertised. Let me tell you that this is the best toilet I’ve ever owned. It has a super powerful flush on the #2 and fully clears the bowl on the #1 setting. Another benefit of this toilet is the cool modern skirt that goes to the floor and eliminates that ugly snaking trap that my last toilet had. It’s a bear to keep that dust ledge clean. Also, you must get the Toto soft close seat. Don’t cheap out and do the $15 home center seat, this seat is worth the $50. No more slamming seat incidents from my toddler. I love this toilet and I’m going to be hesitent to buy any toilet in the future without the Toto label.
One final comment you need to be aware of with this toilet is that it has a low water line. By this I mean that you will probably need to clean the bowl more often that your old swimming pool style toilet.
Lastly, if you live in the City of Austin they’ve got a killer rebate on these unit. Can you image how much water our City would save if every household had high effeciency toilets? This is another of those no-brainer green products that works better than the junky older toilets yet does our world some good…
