Rated 5 out of 5 by IndyContractor Prelude Elongated Toilet
I’ve worked as a home contractor for more than 13 years, and installed hundreds of toilets from all types of manufacturers. What sets the new Delta Prelude toilet apart from the rest is easy installation. This is by far one of the easiest toilets to install because the bolts are already attached to the mounting plate. The toilet comes equipped with all the parts necessary, so no extra tools are needed. I was able to get the toilet installed in minutes. This toilet is also a great value for the dollar. There is no reason for homeowners to spend more on a toilet when this one has all the features and durable quality that far exceeds other, more expensive brands out there.

We purchased it for our master bathroom remodel in February and have been using it ever since. Our old toilet was a 1977 model with a 3 gallon flush and from time to time it would need a double flush! We have not had to double flush this one yet. It flushes very quickly, very powerfully, and very quietly. It refills almost immediately very quietly too. We can't believe how powerful it is with just a 1.28 gallon flush ....we can really see where this will save water! We like it so much that we are going to put one in the hall bathroom and maybe even in the basement bathroom also!!!

Was doing a bathroom remodel for my daughter this past weekend. I've worked with American Standard, Kohler and other "non-brands" in the past. The Delta Prelude was the easiest toilet I've ever installed! No tools required! Everything is in the box (except supply line). When it was time to flush------WOW! Very efficient for 1.28 gpf. I also should mention that I bought at my local Home Depot for a price that I first thought was incorrect. Thank you Delta for a great piece of modern design and efficiency.

Rated 4 out of 5 by macmania Great value for the price
This toilet is perfect for my small guest 3/4 bathroom. Would have given it 5 stars except that the seat is very cheap looking and feeling. Also didn't notice until it was installed that the handle is on the side and not in front, which I would have preferred.
I had recently replaced my main bathroom toilet with a much more expensive American Standard Champion 4 Max toilet, which I love. This Delta toilet was much easier for my handyman to install than the AS toilet. However, I prefer the AS self-closing seat, the coating inside the toilet that keeps stuff from sticking, and the nicer handle in front.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DIYBrandon Easily Installed, Great Asthetics
I've never installed a toilet prior to the Delta Prelude, so I cannot speak as to how easy this one is to install vs others, but I can say that it's pretty easy in general. I really dig the fact there is a bracket at the bottom of the tank that eliminates the need to have bolts going through the bowl, this eliminates the worry of having any future leaks and makes the install super smooth.
The toilet uses way less water than my previous American Standard toilet, and appears to get its flushing power by releasing all of the water into the bowl at one time vs the old swirling in method. The flush is quick and efficient.
The only downside I have experienced with this is the fact it doesn't always clean the walls of the bowl. I guess I could also throw in the fact that the toilet seat is very cheap feeling, so much so that I am looking to swap it out.
The toilet has great lines and has a very clean profile, which will enhance any modern bathrooms athletic quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Albert31 Excellent Design and Feature
This toilet get this review for excellent based on the noted features that are proven to be true...the exclusive SmartFit tank-to-bowl connection reducing potential leak points, over-tightening of the fasteners and cracking the toilet Maximum flush power while saving you money. I have never install a toilet and this one made my job easy. The product is beautiful and semi quiet. The toilet came with everything I needed to complete the job except the water supply line. Excellent product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Patrick Easy to install, good looking product
First time installing a toilet. Directions very easy to read and understand. Very few parts to install. Toilet is very tall, seat height is comfortable, toilet is narrow, great for small places. Toilet is very quiet when flushing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bruinbud Best toilet we have ever purchased
This toilet works better than any one we have owned in any of our homes over the years. Flushing system is excellent, the unit is attractive and we would heartily recommend this product.
The installation, performed by James Labasan from Fast Water Heater Company was excellent; quick, efficient and James was definite "people person". We would recommend his company.
