Kohler Gabrielle Toilet – Specifications
Let’s have a look at the top 4 features of this high-efficiency toilet:
1. One-Piece Design
This one-piece toilet is made from vitreous china and has a high-glazed finish in several colors, from biscuit and white to thunder grey, black, and more.
This quality toilet consists of an elongated bowl that only takes as much space as a round bowl, which makes it suitable for smaller rooms. Additionally, it comes with a Quiet-Close seat that prevents loud slams after each toilet use. The height of the toilet seat is comfortable and offers chair-height seating. Additionally, this toilet features a standard left-hand trip lever and is ADA compliant.
2. Flushing Technology
The Kohler Gabrielle uses Class Five flushing technology with its single flush system. Each flush uses the force of gravity to create a strong siphon to boost the efficiency of the flush. Additionally, it consumes 1.28 gallons per flush to get rid of the waste effectively and entirely.
Like the Kohler Memoirs, this toilet’s low water usage makes it EPA WaterSense certified, which makes users eligible for rebates depending on their location. In addition, the glazed trap-way of the toilet adds to the efficiency of the flush.
3. Cleaning Surface
With its AquaPiston flush, water enters the bowl and clears the full surface. The 2-1/8-inch glazed trap-way allows for efficient and effective flushing even with a single flush. Additionally, the smooth curves of the toilet prevent the debris from sticking in the corners and contours. However, this toilet doesn’t have a special clean finish, which means you can use any standard toilet cleaning agent you want for its cleaning.
4. Simple Installation
Like most one-piece toilets, this toilet has a straightforward setup procedure. It requires a standard 12-inch rough-in for its toilet installation. As a one-piece toilet, this model is bigger and heavier, which makes its initial setup a little tricky. However, once it’s placed on the floor, the rest of the installation process should be easy and quick.
