OMGHi2U What is the best toilet guts you can buy?

My house has 3 toilets. I replaced all the guts when I got the house and since the 7ish years I've owned it I've done so time and time again. Does OT know who makes the best toilet guts??? The keywords I'm looking for with posters are:

Haute Couture
Dyson of Toilet Guts
Terribly Expensive
Give-it-hell
When nuclear war happens there will be cockroaches and your toilet guts left over

All I know is that the money spent on a heated Japanese toilet seat is well ****ing worth it.

Get one of those self-pressurizing rocket flusher that you can retrofit in there. They force your poop into the next town over.

I have to admit, I was thinking this, this very morning as I was taking a poop.

I think the last kit I bought, cost about $7-$10 from home depot. They only seem to last me 3-5 yrs. During that time, the flapper gets nasty and slimy. Or the handle arm breaks, and the handle... wow is that cheap.

Perhaps a new fancy toilet is the answer?

Basically the only thing that fails is the flapper. Buy one of these when the flapper fails and you install it correctly, the toilet should be trouble free for many ****s.

This is relevant to my interests.

I've done the same thing as Ron. Replace, replace, replace.

Flappers failed, but also the fill valves... even the replacement units!

Actually the one that's failed a second time is in the guest room and is rarely used.

Not only do they flush a lot of crap (er... whatever), but they also have a ten year warranty, including internal parts.

Expensive? Check. Plan on $300+, compared to about half of that for whatever's on sale at Lowe's/HD.

We have seven toilets, and I've replaced something on all seven. I've found the best fill valve is by Korky. It doesn't have the sliding piece, which is the bit that tends to break. It just has a rectangular block at the top that has an internal float valve. I've put them in four of the seven toilets, dating back to 2006, and haven't had a single problem. As for the flapper, I've been using Korky there too, but next time I might retrofit one of those hippie two stage toilet kits, because it replaces the flapper with something more akin to a plug, and the lever with two buttons. I've seen them for about $20 on Amazon. I might buy one for my next toilet repair.

I sat on a toilet in Tokyo that had more computing power than my PC. I could not read anything so I commanded a bunch of strange noises, but it self-warmed and douched and did some other stuff I didn't intend.

Japan holds about 50% of the population of the USA on about 4% of the land mass. They don't have the room for waste, so their products tend to last and work every time. Try to source some JDM toilet parts if you can.

They do make a lifetime toilet fill valve.




































It's a 5 gallon bucket. Other than that, get a Korky fill valve. .

I want one of those. It's a bladder or something. Haven't found a kit yet.

Read more. Sloan Flushmate. And the sloan valve company is the best. Look down in any nice bathrool. What do you see a Regal. Possible a Royal.

Let what? (looks at keyboard... L key and Y key are hardly adjacent)

I have 2 toilets in my house, living here for 11 years, and haven't had to replace anything in the toilets, except a leaking donut gasket on one (but that's under the toilet itself).

I just added a half bath, remodeled another and replaced my master toilet. All three now have pressure assist toilets. They can be loud at times and they scare my guests sometimes but they will flush anything. Will have to see how long they last though.

Water closet.

You should find a way to connect an industrial shop vac to the toilet.
