WOW! When I received my water bill I almost fainted. The water portion of the bill was 53.00 dollars and the sewer portion was 153.00. I know it is my toilet. What is the best toilet to buy that uses less water. Right now I have an American standard. I think it uses like 7 gallons a flush. Ridiculous. Any suggestions please.

Your very lucky as I have seen invoices in excess of $4,600 just for the water bill not including the sewer bill.

For the NYC greater toilet change out I replaced over 1,500 toilets and absolutely refused to buy / install any Kohler toilet or any pressure assist one.

I did install Crane toilets only with not one single complaint and these were $59.00 ea.

Of course the price now is slightly above $100 but the 1.6 GPF proved to be amazing for the price without having folks having to double flush and the parts are readily available if repairs are needed.

I also try to keep away from the American standard and if I cannot get Crane the I settle for Gerber.

I would also think about using the fluid master 400 A fill valve as it lets you know when there is a water flowing problem do to defective flapper etc.

I happen to like buying "American" products
