Top 10 Best Flushing Toilet

Today, some of the best flushing toilets are super affordable.

Many are two-piece toilets with dual flush technology – less water, faster refill, quieter running.

FYI: Toilet with AquaPiston technology is the most popular for residential use.

Below are my picks for the best flushing Toilet for home.

Best flushing Toilet for home

Kohler Memoirs Toilet Review

[amazon box=”B016WNA94U”]

The Kohler Memoirs is a two-piece toilet w/ a retro-style design.

The eco-friendly Toilet uses only 1.28 gpm (gallons per flush) – which saves up to 20% compared to standard toilets.

Toilet: two-piece

Flushing: 1.28 gpm

Pricing: Medium

Universal chair height of 17.5″, and it meets EPA flushing standards.

Kohler Memoirs Toilet with AquaPiston flushing system to help remove waste effectively using a higher pressurized flush system – wider flush pipe adds to its ability to remove waste with a single flush.

Lots of positive reviews – some buyers say it never leaks and is the best flushing toilet they’ve owned.

Medium price w/ many color options.

Toto Drake Two-Piece Review

[amazon box=”B009H0SKC4″]

The Toto Drake II is a top-selling 2-piece Toilet w/ 1.28 gallons per flush.

It comes w/ a no-stick glaze that is applied to the toilet bowl – making the bowl more slick and less likely to retain particles.

Toilet: two-piece

Flushing: 1.28 gpm

Pricing: Expensive

Buyers love that the Toilet consistently empties on each flush!

You can also hold down the handle to activate the new “swirl” feature – extends the flush longer (without flooding the tank) so you can ensure everything flushes properly.

Expensive, but arguably the best flushing toilet option on my list.

Kohler Cimarron Reviews

[amazon box=”B002I0GRRA”]

The Kohler Cimarron is another top seller online.

It’s a 2-piece toilet with a powerful 1.68-gallon flush — not the most water efficient, but extra water and AquaPiston power means it won’t require 2+ flushes.

Type: 2-Piece Toilet

Flush: 1.6 gpf

Even with a powerful flush, buyers say it’s surprisingly quiet. A few buyers equipped it with a high-end bidet seat.

Another nice feature is the gasket seal which guarantees no leaks.

Overall the Kohler Cimarron Toilet is an affordable model w/ lots of happy buyers.

Toto UltraMax II Review

[amazon box=”B001BYS5RE”]

The TOTO UltraMax comes w/ a new Tornado Flush, which removes waste quickly + conserves water.

Water efficient model, using only 1.28 gallons per flush.

The large 3-inch valve is what allows for efficiency — speed is power, so a larger valve is able to flush the entire tank much quicker than comparable toilets.

Toto UltraMax also includes a specialized bowl glaze to keep particles from sticking to the bowl.

Also a favorite for attaching a Toto washlet seat.

It’s a more expensive model, but buyers say it’s easy to install and love the extra-power flush.

Kohler Persuade Toilet Review

[amazon box=”B003A672MK”]

The Kohler Persuade Toilet has a sleek, skirted design making it easier to keep clean.

Kohler Persuade is a two-piece toilet w/ Comfort Height and an elongated bowl.

I personally love its simplistic design – as you can see, there’s little space behind the seat, which is where you’d likely see grime.

It offers 2 flush settings1-gallons or 1.6-gallons

The flush option saves buyers as much as 16,500 gallons per year.

If your area has a water bill, the Kohler Persuade is a terrific option!

Toto Aquia IV Review

[amazon box=”B003937K0S”]

Toto Aquia Dual Flush Toilet is ideal for adding a Toto washlet bidet seat.

Available in two universal height sizes, it is a little slimmer than others on my list – perfect for smaller bathrooms.

As a dual flush toilet, it provides an extra powerful flush using 1.6 GPF.

It’s a little louder, but buyers are impressed with how quickly and efficiently it discards waste.

They also confirm how easy it is to install.


  • Type: 2-piece Toilet
  • Weight: 95 pounds
  • Gallons: 1.6 gpf (gallons per flush)
  • Options: 1 color options
  • Pressure-assisted flushing design
  • WaterSense Certified

Potential Flaws

  • Some difficulty installing
  • The seat isn’t included

Kohler Santa Rosa Review

[amazon box=”B004QZFRYO”]

The Kohler Santa Rosa toilet is designed at a comfortable chair height of 17 1/4″.

It’s not a dual flush toilet, but using only 1.28 GPF, it’s effective and water efficient.

It includes AquaPistons to help ensure water flows down over the entire bowl — rarely requires multiple flushes peruse.

Kohler Santa Rosa is an affordable model — reading reviews; it’s popular for guest bathrooms or basement bathrooms.

It is also a favorite for attaching a luxury bidet seat.


  • Type: 1 piece toilet
  • Gallons: 1.28 gpf (gallons per flush)
  • Options: 7 color options
    • colors differ by price
  • Stylish design w/ larger water tank
  • Powerful flushing
    • Kohler AquaPistons
  • Easy to mount + easy installation
  • Affordable toilet model

Potential Flaws

Toto Drake Round Bowl Toilet (#CST743S)

[amazon box=”B001KAFKRM”]

Using 1.28 GPF, the Drake Round Bowl toilet is one of the most affordable options on my list.

As you can see, it looks fairly basic, but don’t let that fool you — it has a professional-grade flushing performance.

It comes equipped with a larger flush valve and Kohler’s G-Max flushing system. This creates a fast 1.28 GPF flush that’s relatively quiet.

Because of its lower noise, the Toto’s Drake round bowl toilet is a favorite for upstairs bathrooms.

A great option for guest bathrooms or upstairs/downstairs bathrooms.

Drake Round Bowl comes in 5 color options. (colors will vary by price)


  • Type: 2-piece Toilet
  • Weight: 88 pounds
  • Gallons: 1.6 gpf (gallons per flush)
  • Options: 5 color options
  • Very affordable
  • Professional grade flush performance
  • Relatively quiet

Potential Flaws

  • Uses more water than other models

Toto Supreme Elongated 1-Piece Toilet (#MS864114)

[amazon box=”B0008535JA”]

The Toto Supreme Elongated toilet is similar in size to an integrated bidet toilet. 

Like other Toto toilets, it also has a wider valve which helps ensure a powerful flush every time.

I noticed that it has a lower tank on the back, and that can be a real bonus if you want to have shelves above the Toilet.

Toto Supreme uses 1.6 gallons of water per flush. This meets industry standards, although there are more water-efficient models available from other manufacturers.

This is also an expensive model, which may deter some shoppers.


  • Type: 1 piece toilet
  • Weight: 102 pounds
  • Gallons: 1.6 gpf (gallons per flush)
  • Options: 4 color options
  • Lower tank design
  • Wider flush valves

Potential Flaws

  • Bit more expensive
  • The flush is a little louder

Kohler Highline Classic Elongated Toilet

[amazon box=”B001024MJW”]

The Kohler Highline toilet has a comfort height of 17 1/4″ and has 4 colors to choose from. This is great if you have a challenging bathroom design to match.

I like the fact that the Toilet is comfortable in height, so it is not too low and uncomfortable to sit on. It is also elongated, which is often more comfortable than rounder seats — lots of strong buyer reviews, many of which mention a powerful flush and fewer clogs (which means less plunging!)

Depending on what color you choose, you may or may not be able to order it through Amazon Prime — This means you need to pay attention to the cost and whether or not you have to pay extra for shipping when you order.

This model uses a bit more water with each flush than some other models discussed on this list, but it does a great job of removing waste from the bowl with a single flush.


  • Type: 2-piece Toilet
  • Gallons: 1.6 gpf (gallons per flush)
  • Options: 4 color options
  • Seat included
  • Comfort Height
  • Affordable for most households

Potential Flaws

  • Doesn’t include a seat

Toto Drake 2-Piece Toilet (#CST744SG)

[amazon box=”B08S4646QQ”]

I love the fact that the TOTO Drake 2-Piece toilet has SanaGloss and Ion Barrier because these features help keep the Toilet clean.

This model also has TOTO’s popular fast flush system, which includes a wider 2″ valve. The flushing system is commercial grade. This means it does a great job of removing waste.

An elongated bowl is something I appreciate because they’re often more comfortable to sit on.

This model isn’t quite as water-efficient as some other models. It does meet the industry standards by using 1.6 gallons per flush, though.

Users like the fact that it’s very quiet and has a SoftClose seat included.


  • Type: 2-piece Toilet
  • Weight: 103 pounds
  • Gallons: 1.6 gpf (gallons per flush)
  • Options: 1 color options
  • SanaGloss = less particle stick on the bowl
  • Contemporary design
  • 2″ Flush valves
  • G-Max Flushing
    • Commercial-grade power flushing
    • Fairly quiet

Potential Flaws

  • Only 1 color is available
