One-Piece Toilets vs. Two-Piece Toilets

One-piece toilets integrate tank and bowl into a seamless, space-saving design that is easy to clean. Some low-profile models can be installed under a vanity extension when space is at a premium. Because of their special design detail, most one-piece toilets ship with a complementary Quiet-Close™ toilet seat with Quick-Release functionality. Most toilet manufacturers such as American Standard and Toto offers the Quiet-Close™ option.

One-piece toilet as the name implies comes in one sweeping motion which is easier to install. Cleaning is a breeze as there is lesser cavities to deal with. The toilet seat is designed to close quietly and gently, saving wear and tear.

Two-piece toilets feature the traditional design of a separate tank and bowl. Two- and three-bolt installation systems provide a sturdy, level connection between the tank and bowl, making installation easy

The traditional two-piece toilet separates the tank from the bowl. Installation is relatively quick and simple. The choice between one and two-piece toilet comes down to price differential.

Bowl Shape

Compact elongated one-piece toilet designs enable an elongated bowl to fit in a round-front space.

Elongated bowls provide added room and comfort for adults. American Standard offers many elongated toilets in various style.

Round-front bowls such as Fitzgerald from DXV by American Standard require less space and are good for small children. These are also referred to as “plain bowls”. When every inch of space is at a premium, round bowls would be an excellent substitute as it takes less space.

Rough-in Size

The rough-in is the distance between the outlet pipe and the wall behind the toilet. Toilets are available in various sizes to fit different rough-ins, so choosing the right size is crucial. To find out the size of your toilet rough-in, simply measure the distance from the wall behind the toilet to the bolt caps of your current toilet. Do not include baseboards in your measurements. American Standard, DXV and Toto offer all of the rough in sizes, especially 12".

Comfort height toilets, approximately 2 inches taller than traditional toilets, make sitting down and standing up easier Toilets that measure between 17 and 19 inches in height from the floor to the top of the seat are considered Comfort Height toilets, whereas traditional toilets measure below 17 inches in height. Many Comfort Height toilets are also ADA-compliant when installed per the applicable guidelines.

For users who require some assistance in sitting down and getting up, installing one similar to a chair with arm rests is an option worth considering. The chair is normally measure at 17 to 19 inches from ground level to the seat. Besides being more comfortable to the user, it provides some safety in up and down movement. American Standard toilets offers this option in a variety of their toilets.
