American Standard 288DA114.020 Toilet Review
Although we use a toilet every day of our lives, most of us don’t stop to think about it. That is unless we go to use one that is uncomfortable, in which case we can’t help but wonder what we did to deserve such treatment.
Unfortunately, though, most of us suffer in silence, even if the toilet in question is the one that we use in our own homes. Because buying a new toilet isn’t something that most of us think to do, we are forced to settle for something less than ideal.
But why continue to suffer if you don’t have to? Don’t wait for your current toilet to break before you spring for a new one. Instead, upgrade today and see what you’ve been missing! In this case, why not get an American Standard Toilet and feel the difference?
Let’s see what this model has to offer.

If your water bill is higher than you want it to be, a great way to save money is to get a low-flow toilet. In many cases, these units use much less water while still giving you peace of mind. In this instance, the American Standard Toilet is certified as ultra-high-efficiency, meaning that you use only 1.1 gallons per flush. That should make your wallet happy when you see your next bill.
One of the worst chores to do around the house is to clean the bathroom. No one wants to scrub a dirty toilet, but fortunately, with this model, you don’t have to. With an EverClean coating on the surface of the bowl, this unit is low maintenance. The entire thing is made of Vitreous China, which is much easier to clean than traditional porcelain.
Siphon Jet Bowl Technology
For most people, they hate low-flow toilets because it requires multiple flushings to get the job done. Fortunately, American Standard knows this is a problem, which is why the company has made this toilet with siphon jet technology.
That means that even though you’re using less water, you still can remove everything with a single flush (in most cases), unlike most flushing toilets.
One way to see if a product will stand the test of time is to see if the company will back it up with a long-term warranty. In this case, American Standard feels so strongly about this toilet that it comes with a limited lifetime warranty on parts and labor.
You even get five years on mechanical components, which is unheard of for this kind of product. That means that you can rest easy with this toilet.

Q: What are the dimensions of this toilet?
A: Manufacturer mentioned, this unit measures 15 x 27.8 x 30 inches.
Q: How much does the toilet weigh?
A: It weighs about 72 pounds. Putting it in is a two-man job.
Q: Does it suck out waste well? I’m worried about the low flow aspect.
A: It works better than other similar models, but you will probably have to flush a few times to get everything, depending on the amount of waste (and paper) you have.
Overall, what I like about this particular model is that it’s easy to clean, it uses less water, and it operates as efficiently as possible. I also appreciate that it comes in an elongated version, as I need a little extra room to make myself comfortable. Overall, I am impressed by the quality of this toilet, and I highly recommend it.
