I need a toilet for the bathroom off a master bedroom that's being built in my house.
Once when my Mother had a plumber in to fix something else, he told her to hang on to her old fashioned toilet as long as she could - plumbers have far more problems and calls about the new high efficiency toilets.
I see that Home Depot and Lowes primarily have 1.23 Gallons per Flush (GPF) toilets in stock, but you can also get 1.6 GPF toilets.
According to Consumer's Reports, more water sometimes (but not always) means better flushing. And all of their best rated toilets use 1.6 GPF.
Should I go for the 1.6 GPF toilet to avoid problems and having to clean the toilet as often? Or have the 1.28 GPF toilets improved enough to use one of those instead?
I live in Minnesota where water usage isn't as big of an issue as it is in California.
