Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Choice I have had a lot of experience with replacing toilets in the homes I have lived in and this one makes it so easy what with the separate bowl and tank to install. Just follow the instructions but take the advice from on-line experts and install the wax ring with funnel over the drain pipe first before setting the toilet bowl on top of it. I don't know why the paper instructions always seem to tell you to attach the wax ring to the bottom of the bowl first, but my experience was that if you do that, it is very difficult exactly align the toilet over the drain pipe for a perfect position to get the hold-down bolts through the two holes at the bottom of the toilet. When I initially tried this method, I had to scrape off the brand new wax ring and install another new one over the drain pipe first. This was the technique I found when I researched the subject on-line. Of course, make sure the toilet bowl sits flat on the floor first in a dry run before installing the wax ring and level it perfectly so it doesn't rock or you will have a hidden leak under the toilet that can become a smelly mess under the floor making your bathroom smell like a gas station restroom. Is that what you want? Later, after installing the wax ring, secure the toilet bottom to the hold-down bolts with washers under the nut for a more even pressure surface. Remember not to tighten them too much or you may crack the porcelain and have to buy another new toilet bowl. Good luck!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice toilet On the small side, looks good, pretty bone finish, powerful flush. Would be 5 stars except the flush sounds like a rocket ship taking off.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Kohler Wellworth Round Front Bowl Product is built extremely well and weighs a ton. The one thing you will have to purchase are the bolts that secure the toilet to the toilet flange. Not a big deal but I did expect a set to come with the bowl.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Okay The only thing I don't like about this toilet is inside the bowl there is a cut-out and this cut-out is hard to keep clean. The brush can't get in the creases easily. I would have liked it better if the creases were smooth rather than 90-deg angled.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect toilet for a tight space I had this installed in my downstairs bathroom, which is really small. It's the perfect size and it looks really nice. Well worth the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wellworth Update Seems to work well, everything has gone done and we've had it for about 3 weeks now. My kids had to double or triple flush with our old Wellworth toilet (30+ years old), so this is great, plus saves us water! However, had originally ordered the top of the line TOTO for that bathroom, only after installing it realizing we have a 14 in rough in and that the toilet looked ridiculous being about 3 inches away from the wall. So, my husband took it out and we were only left with this toilet for a choice with a 14 in. rough in. I was skeptical b/c the consumer reports reviews weren't so great, but it has been fine and is indeed an upgrade from the old toilet!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good toilet - Kohler (K-4197) We replaced an older toilet that used 1.6 gallons/flush and needed to be flushed twice often with a Kohler model. It is wonderful - quiet flush, 1.2 g, and flushing only once does the trick.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Kohler bathroom fixtures While we are very happy with Faucet Direct/ Build.com we are disgusted with Kohler. This is the second toilet we have purchased from them and we will never buy another Kohler product! The first time we went through a local plumber; it took 3 different deliveries before we got a toilet that wasn't damaged! The first toilet bowl we received from Faucet direct was cracked, and the second was missing the bolt cap assembly (as was the first). The tank was missing the nuts and washers. Kohler has serious quality control issues. However, the people at Faucet direct are terrific and we will continue to do business with them.
