Thinking of buying a new jet flush toilet. Anybody have one? Any brand recommendations? I was recently in a nicer hotel and they had a Gerber jet flush toilet. It was amazing -- of course I was only there one night, so I didn't have too much experience with it. Any thoughts on which brand? Also, I won't need electricity to it -- right??

We have one in the men's room where I work. It works very well. This doesn't look like the toilet that is installed, mostly because of the side mounted handle. The price looks worth a try, especially for a Kohler brand name (or any brand toilet, for that matter - What am I overlooking?): http://www.faucetdirect.com/kohler-k-3577-1-28-gpf-round-fro...

Don't know anything about "Jet Flush", but this one is amazing. They make right and left handed, round & elongated bowels, different heights and different distances from the wall -- so be careful if you are ordering.

I've had three Gerbers in my house for the past 6 years. I researched before buying and have not been disappointed. They seem to require cleaning less often too, possibly because of the force of the water.

I have a Kohler Wellworth ... it's a "regular" toilet. I have yet to ever clog it or have a problem (which was an issue with pre-2000 era toilets for me)

If the toilets you have in your home are older than 15-20 years, meaning installed in 1990s or earlier, I'd consider getting a modern regular toilet--they work very well these days and are quieter.

Do you have enough water pressure. I love the jet-flush mechanism; however, our water pressure is not sufficiently high.

My 1999 toilet gets clogged often.

Five years ago I purchased one for just under 500.00. They work great when they work. When they fail like mine did about 4 months ago, they are your worst enemy. Parts are hard to find and are around 300.00 bucks for the required replacement kits (This is true with any of them) and you have to buy parts online. I went back to a regular toilet. The key when buying a new toilet (standard gravity flow) is getting one with a larger diameter where the waste is deposited. I ended up buying one at Home Depot for around 200.00. The next time it fails, parts are cheap and can be purchased anywhere, anytime.

I had a reliable jobber looked a little like this one
http://www.bradleycorp.com/image/685/922-7245_toilet.jpg

I thought I would have it for 15 to 20 years but got out of the big house early.

I'm not sure I've ever seen a siphon jet twa-let in a private home. Maybe I've sat right on one and didn't know it.

The ones you see in commercial buildings kind of work off the city water pressure. In other words, there's no holding tank for gravity to be used on. A commercial jet toilet uses a valve that takes the place of the gravity tank. It seems like the water entering the bowl is coming out at darn near city pressure. I had to fix one just today in fact. Loud but efficient.

Your sewer pipes don't like low-volume flushes. The more water the better insofar as keeping the pipes clear.
