Here in this Kohler Santa Rosa review, we will help you to find the best toilet according to your needs. It is a single piece toilet with the tank blended into the toilet with an easy clean curve. The height of the seat (which is included in the package), the shape of the bowl and the chrome trip lever for the 1.28 gallons per flush mean that the toilet is both ADA compliant and EPA Water Sense certified. The AquaPiston flushing system and the fully glazed trap way both combine to give the Santa Rosa toilet a highly efficient cleaning action with a single flush.
Design / Materials
The one piece Santa Rosa is made from vitreous china. All the corners are rounded to help with easy cleaning and avoids any tight corners where dirt may accumulate. The flush is actuated by a chrome trip lever.
This toilet uses Kohler’s AquaPiston flushing system. This system delivers the 1.28 gallons of water with an added boost, increasing both the power and effectiveness of the flush. The fully glazed trap Aids the flush in clearing the toilet with a single flush. To explain how this system works, take a look at this video.
The Santa Rosa’s cleaning efficiency comes from a combinations of the power of the AquaPiston flushing, the method that the water enters the bowl, the design of the shape of the bowl and the fully glazed trap way. The toilet will clean even a large amount of waste completely on a single flush. Externally, the smooth curves of the toilet prevent any hard to reach places where dirt can accumulate. The toilet does not have any special coatings in the bowl, so almost any standard toilet cleaning agents can be used for cleaning.
This toilet uses only 1.28 gallons of water for a full flush. This low water consumption combined with the ability to remove a large volume of waste gives the Santa Rosa EPA Water Sense certification. In many municipalities, having a Water Sense toilet means that you are eligible for rebates on your water bills. Check out the EPA Water Sense website here, to check whether you are eligible for the rebates.
Ease of Installation
For installation, this toilet needs a standard 12” rough in. To install you need to have a new wax seal and, depending on the condition of the existing, bolts, new fixing bolts and nuts. The installation is similar to any other standard single piece toilet and can be completed with minimal DIY skills. For full installation details, take a looks at Kohler’s installation guide.
