Some of the best 1.6 gpf toilets were a little hard to find, especially when you see just how many different toilets there are to choose from. I did a little research and found some of the best models out there and made a shorter, easier to read list.
Below are some of the top models based on a number of different factors like ratings, flush capability, longevity and so on. I hope it helps someone out there and please, let me know what you think in the comments below the article. Thanks!
This CST744SG#01 Drake 2-Piece Toilet from TOTO
This CST744SG#01 Drake 2-Piece Toilet from TOTO is large, substantial commode with its elongated bowl and plenty of room in front of its tank.
Be sure to have plenty of room to install this big kit, but it’s worth it just for that powerful flush that just dumps solid mass like it was never there.
Even as the TOTO Drake uses just 1.6 gallons per flush, it shoots the water out in a quick, powerful torrent from its oversized 3-inch flush valve, 125 percent larger than others in the market today. Combined with TOTO’s G-Max flushing system, and the result is a quiet, powerful, commercial-grade flush with every press of its side-mounted lever.
Solid waste is instantly sucked into its fully glazed trap way, which is oversized as well and optimized with a computer-designed shape to most efficiently get rid of the largest loads. It comes with TOTO’s Sanagloss surface treatment as well, making this a low-maintenance, low-consumption toilet.
The K-3819-0 Memoirs toilet from KOHLER
The K-3819-0 Memoirs toilet from KOHLER is an elegant fixture to any classic bathroom design, with its architecture-inspired chiseled look and rich detailing.
Add to the appeal of your bathroom with this stately commode which evokes the crown molding of classic furniture and buildings, to complete your classic American bathroom look.
The KOHLER Memoirs may look more upscale than the usual, industrial commode, but this toilet is surprisingly comfortable to use, too. Set at the usual chair-seating height, most adults, even the taller ones in the house, will not have much trouble settling in or rising up from this sensibly designed kit.
The elongated bowl helps the taller occupants use the toilet comfortably, too. After the deed, the Class Five flushing design by KOHLER gets rid of solid bulk with its large flush valve dumping 1.6 gallons of water per flush, sent rushing around the bowl with its direct-fed jet design to keep it sparkling clean.
The K-3589-96 Cimarron from KOHLER
The K-3589-96 Cimarron from KOHLER just gives out an impression of comfort from every angle, from its soft off-white colors to the gentle curves of its tank and seat column.
The comfortable design is not just looks, either, as the Cimarron sits at chair height letting taller adults settle down and stand back up, no problem.
Even as it features an elongated bowl that can accommodate taller occupants, the shorter profile of the Cimarron means it can comfortably fit even half-sized toilet and bathrooms. It can sit so close to a wall when mounted that it takes up the same footprint as a less-comfortable round-front bowl.
With comfort comes performance as well,thanks to its AquaPiston canister that sends 1.6 gallons of water swirling around the bowl, clearing solid bulk even from the sides. This canister design also has an added advantage of keeping its seal away from the tank water, ensuring years of leak-free performance.
The CST412MF.01 Aquia Dual Flush from TOTO
The CST412MF.01 Aquia Dual Flush from TOTO is a straightforward, compact design that will blend right in with any modern bathroom design, even smaller ones.
This two-piece kit is integrated so closely that the whole installation fits into even the smallest bathroom, while still featuring an elongated bowl for taller occupants.
The Aquia Dual Flush is already considered a low consumption toilet, but TOTO offers users even more ways to save water thanks to its Dual-Max flushing system. Its regular flush uses 1.6 gallons of water to clear even the heavier solid bulks, while a light flush uses just 0.9 gallons to clear liquids with no problem.
You will have to find a seat and cover to go with this two-piece kit, though, and users highly recommend the TOTO SS204-01 Contemporary SoftClose Oval Toilet Seat shown in the image, in Cotton White like the rest of the toilet.
The 2862.056.020 Fairfield from American Standard
The 2862.056.020 Fairfield from American Standard is their one-piece fixture, perfect for children’s bathrooms thanks to its compact design.
The kit comes complete with its matching toilet seat and cover too, which is great for those looking to have a commode that comes complete in one box.
The whole assembly is made from vitreous china, a material that comes with a non-porous, sanitary surface that’s even more enhanced by its White glaze. The siphon action design of its bowl sucks in solid bulk with just one press of its side mounted, polished chrome side lever.
The elongated bowl lets the taller kids in the house settle in comfortably, aided by the generous rear room provided by its unique tank design. Users love it for its powerful yet quiet flush, and also for the way it arrives with everything built in – all you need is your water supply line and wax ring and you’re set.
