This toilet has a slick, beautiful design that should be cleaned using a gentle cleanser. It shouldn’t damage the surface of this toilet. However, this toilet doesn’t come with a special finishing, so you will have to clean it manually. Doing this will protect the toilet from dirt and germ build-up. Additionally, deep cleaning your toilet every week will keep it in good shape for a long time.
The installation of this toilet is very straightforward, like the American Standard H20 Siphonic Dual Flush. It comes with an instruction manual to help with the installation process. Additionally, the package also includes two color-matched bolt caps for the installation of this toilet. Being a single-piece unit, it’s a little heavy, and its heavyweight makes the setup a bit tricky and a two-person job.
Unique Features of the American Standard Fairfield Toilet
Consumption should always be considered when buying a new toilet. When it comes to the Fairfield model, the truth is, it consumes more than other modern toilets. That’s why it doesn’t have the EPA WaterSense certification. Unlike most models, instead of 1.28, it consumes around 1.6 gallons per each flush. However, it’s still pretty fair.
Like most modern toilets, this American Standard model is also made from Vitreous China. The material is strong, durable, and prevents bacteria from sticking. It also prevents the sticking of dirt, which directly lessens the maintenance time in the long run.
The toilet has an enamel coating which prevents the appearance of infections and stains. It means that there is no need for using harsh chemicals that might ruin the surface. Also, it directly increases the lifespan of the toilet.
Among all the toilet’s features, we really adore the SoftClose seat that comes with the package. Its special technique prevents unintentional slamming, which directly improves its lifespan. Also, the seat is completely white, making it suitable for most modern and even older bathrooms.
Price and Warranty
This company provides one of the best warranties among toilet manufacturers. When you buy this unit, you will get a lifetime warranty on the coating, and a 1-year warranty on parts. It also has a warranty on its SoftClose seat.
