The American Standard Champion 4 is manufactured in vitreous china and has American Standard’s Ever Clean surface. This surface finish inhibits stains and the growth or bacteria, mold, and mildew, keeping the toilet cleaner for longer. The 1.6 gallons per flush uses the Champion 4 flushing system for a 4” high-pressure piston to give a high-performance flush.
This toilet has an elongated bowl and a rim height of 16 1/2”. When the toilet is fitted with an appropriate height seat (which must be purchased separately), the toilet becomes ADA compliant.
American Standard Champion 4 Review
Design / Materials
The Champion 4 is a one piece toilet and cistern combined. It is made of vitreous china with an Ever Clean Surface. The Ever Clean finish is specially designed to reduce staining and inhibit the growth of mold, bacteria, and mildew. The finish leads to reduced cleaning requirements.
A combination of the levered flush mechanism, the shape of the bowl and the height of the seat all make the Champion 4 ADA compliant.
One of the best flushing toilets, which has a single flush that uses American Standard’s Champion 4 flushing system. There is a 4” non-adjustable piston that, with the Accelerator flush valve, delivers a high pressure 1.6 gallons flush. The 2 3/8” trap way is fully glazed to allow a smooth passage of waste to the drainage system. The flush system has been tested as capable of removing 2.2 lbs. of waste in a single flush.
The high-pressure flushing system, combined with the Ever Clean surface of the bowl, helps ensure that this toilet flushes completely first time. The Ever Clean surface, in addition, prevents the buildup of stains and discoloration due to mildew, microbial, and bacterial action.
The 1.6 gallons per flush ensures that this toilet is within Federal toilet flush specifications. However, the 1.6 gpf means that it is outside the Water Sense guidelines and does not qualify for rebates.
Ease of Installation
The toilet is designed to fit a minimum of a 12” rough in. As the Champion 4 is a one piece toilet, it is heavier than the individual parts of a two-piece. This weight makes it a little more difficult to position it over the rough out and is better done as a two-person job, rather than on your own. Apart from that one small thing, the toilet is a simple straightforward and very quick installation. Secure to the floor and attach the water supply, fit the seat, and the toilet installation is complete.
