This make just look like an ordinary toilet, but it’s actually the bane of my existence and has been for many years. I still remember when it entered our home after the tank on the previous toilet cracked. I had been excited at the time. Not only did we upgrade to a brand new low-flow toilet; we also used the replacement as an excuse to redo the entire bathroom. With wood accents, cheery peach paint and white trim, I loved the result, and my new sink and toilet too.
And then the nightmare began. To my great surprise, I learned that a low-flow toilet, or at least the one we had installed in our bathroom, was terrible. It often needed to be flushed multiple times almost immediately after being installed, and once both boys were potty trained…well, it got even worse. Combine an overzealous child, a roll of toilet paper and a low-flow toilet and you have a recipe for disaster. Without getting too graphic, I’ll just say that it’s an odd day that I don’t need to use the plunger at least once.
