Just because everyone uses them every day doesn't mean all toilets are the same. Whether clients are looking to meet special requirements, such as ADA-compliance or hygiene needs, or simply seeking an upgrade in design or functionality, there's a model available to “dethrone” previous versions of this bathroom essential.
Eljer. Rethink bathroom design with the Titan Triangle for space-saving installation in bath and powder room corners. The gravity-fed toilet is designed to ensure total bowl evacuation in one flush, with the help of an advanced flushing system and streamlined trapway for increased siphoning action. Available with a 15-inch plain-rim or elongated-rim bowl, or a 17-inch elongated rim. 800.423.5537. www.eljer.com.
Saniflo. Create powder rooms in otherwise tight spaces with the Sanicompact 48 self-contained water closet. Featuring a macerating pump and an electronically activated toilet bowl, the unit measures just 14¾ inches wide and 12¾ inches deep. Ideal for attic spaces, lofts, pool houses, beneath stairs, or anywhere else homeowners want the convenience of a WC. 800.571.8191. www.saniflo.com.
Briggs. Re-engineered waterways and advanced flushing technology allow the Maelstrom high-performance toilet to deliver a powerful, controlled flush. The flapperless 3-inch flush valve quietly empties the 1.6-gallon tank in 3 seconds. Jetted flushing technology creates a powerful vortex driving water through the 2 1/8-inch-wide trapway, virtually eliminating clogs. Available in white, biscuit, or bone. 800.888.4458. www.briggsindustries.com.
Vitra. The ADA Corina V3Technology system is a variation on the maker's original V3 system. The toilet's top seat measures 17 inches from the finished floor to meet ADA requirements. The V3 system maximizes vortex with a 3-inch flush valve, boosts flushing and discharge velocity by allowing water to enter the bowl's 2 1/8-inch trap more quickly, and creates a strong vacuum with siphon jet action for efficient flush performance. 877.658.4872. www.vitra-usa.com.
Kohler. Enhancing hygiene and comfort for both men and women, C3series toilet seats incorporate bidet-style cleansing functionality. The C3-200 model offers an in-line heater while the C3-100 features a side-mounted control panel and built-in tank heater to supply warm water. A 110-volt GFCI outlet must be available behind the toilet for operation. In use, a front wand designed for women, and back wand for the whole family, offer personalized cleaning. Both wands are constructed from antimicrobial material and are user-controlled for positioning and varying levels of water flow. 800.456.4537. www.kohler.com.
