Over the past few months, I have been swamped building a new home for my family and me. This post (and a few more to follow), will discuss the products that I chose to install and why. The first fixtures I will be highlighting are the toilets. There is a lot of talk in the plumbing community comparing TOTO vs. American Standard toilets. I like both brands and feel both companies make great products. PlumberssStock has been selling toilets from both brands for years, and I’ve been relying on what their sales reps told me and what their product brochures claimed. I had to find out firsthand and install one from each company.

From the American Standard lineup of cost-effective toilets, I chose the American Standard Cadet Pro 215C.A104.020. This is a trendy model and one of American Standard’s best-selling units.

Features of the Cadet Pro include:
