Pros: Great Flushing power
Cons: Availability, hard to find
I was completely shocked by all the negative reviews on this toilet. I have installed 100's of toilets and this one crushes all of them with regards to flapper vs flapperless.
The reason I tried this toilet was to get away from the flapper style because my municipal water supply is loaded with calcium which in very short time causes flappers to fail (calcium builds up around the flappers and causes them to leak and it is expensive to pay for the lost water). I was reluctant to buy this toilet because I didn't know anything about them but I am glad I bought it and wish that I had bought one for every toilet I had. (I have rental units).
What is good about the toilet? The force that the elevated trough causes the flow of water to flush. With a standard toilet that has water sitting on a flapper, the flapper lifts and the water begins to flow. With this toilet the trough is elevated to the top of the tank and the hole where the flapper would be is about 8" below where the water will dump. Common sense says that the down force is automatically greater than that of a standard flapper style toilet.
This is BY FAR the BEST flushing toilet I have ever installed or used outside of flush valve toilets. I was amazed by the force of the flush and I wish I could find another Pegasus locally. The one I bought was from Home Depot.
When I have demonstrated the toilet to other people and then show them inside the tank they too are amazed and have wondered why the flapper less toilet has not gotten more attention.
Just makes me wonder why so many negative comments...seems as though someone has an agenda, too bad, this is a great toilet and I would highly recommend it.
My main issue with the flapper less toilets...lack of availability. Lowes have zero models and Home Depot has them on occasion.
