The TOTO Carlyle-II is a single-piece toilet with a skirted bowl. The skirted design of this toilet brings a modern look with no lines. It is made from vitreous china and has a SanaGloss finish to ensure maximum cleanliness of the toilet. Additionally, this toilet features a soft-close seat which helps you avoid loud slams after each toilet use. Another great benefit is that it has multiple varieties in flushing handles. So, if you don’t like the standard chrome finish of the trip lever, you can choose from other finishes, for instance, brass and brushed nickel.
It has a dual cyclone flush system, also known as Tornado flush that forces the water through two jets to boost the efficiency of the flush. It also ensures that a single flush effectively cleans the entire toilet bowl thoroughly while only using 1.28 gallons per flush. In addition to that, this toilet is EPA WaterSense certified, and not only for its low water usage but also for its efficient and effective flushing action.
The Carlyle-II ensures a high-class cleaning standard of the toilet. Due to its SanaGloss finish, it reduces staining on the surface of the toilet. In addition to that, it also prevents the growth of bacteria and microbes. Lastly, this combination of flush and surface finish is incredible and provides maximum cleaning. It also doesn’t require you to do much work manually. However, you have to make sure that you use gentle cleaning agents while cleaning this toilet to maintain the SanaGloss finish for a long time.

Even with its low water usage, it doesn’t compromise on its efficiency of removing waste. Depending on where you live, this toilet also makes you eligible to get a significant rebate on your water bill when you utilize this toilet.
Ease of Installation
Lastly, like most modern toilets, this one also comes with a 12” rough-in, although there is also an option to get other sizes, such as 10” and 14”. However, you will have to purchase these separately. In addition to that, the installation of this toilet is not a piece of cake. Its heavy weight and size can make it a little harder to install. With that said, a lot of toilet installations aren’t tricky at all. Sometimes existing water supply outlets can get in the way of the skirt so you might have to relocate them.
