Prelude Elongated Toilet
Looks good, below average performance
I bought the toilet, 2 of them, for a new house construction. I bought it based on its appearance and Delta name. I know it is a low flow toilet but did not realize how low it was. You have to hold the lever down to flush completely and there is hardly enough water to flush everything down. The lever mechanism inside the toilet is cheap plastic and we are constantly tightening it up or repositioning to get it to work. The toilet seat is not soft close like many of the other competitors. The plumber like the ease of installation. I am disappointed in the performance and will not be another any time soon. I am finishing my basement and putting in another bathroom and will be using a different toilet manufacturer. Delta, you need to rework the toilet.

very good so far after 4 months.
I had my construction worker- neighbor install it. It took him only 40 minutes. The 36 year old toilet flange was rusted out and crumbling. Also replaced a portion of the sewer pipe coming to the top of the floor. All done in 40 minutes. The water level float is harder to adjust but was working at it's factory setting. The flapper only stuck open once about a month ago, but my finger slipped off the handle while flushing, which might have caused that. Rarely have to do a double flush.

not to bad!
OK I have had this toilet for about a year now. It replaced one that was 20+ years old, and I have to say it has never let me down. 1 flush 0 clogs it takes what ever is thrown at it. One of the better low flow toilets I have used. The problem I have is with the toilet seat, which just broke at the hinge. This is something I have never had happen to me so I am a little dissapointed in that. However the flushing performance is fantastic.

We replaced our Eljer toilet because of a leaking tank with a new Delta we found at Home Depot. WOW was that ever a good choice.It was so easy to install and works like a champ. It took less than 30 mins. to install and I like the 3 bolts on the tank that doesn't let it rock like on the older toilet we had. Great product and very quiet when flushed.

Pros and Cons
Love the height and it flushes very well. Easy to install. I wish you could adjust the water level in the toilet though. It needs more in the bowl because sometimes poo gets stuck on the bowl and you have to wipe it off.

This toilet has the features I have been looking for.
Excellent product,installed it myself, very easy really, the only thing I did not use is the wax ring that came with it. I replaced a very old toilet (I bought the house in 1984). This is the extra toilet, I replaced the main toilet a few years ago, but this is a lot better. I highly recommend this product.

Overall this toilet is worth every penny! Only one issue! The tank to toilet seal leaked! Even after repositioning the seal several times, it leaked! No replacement seal at hardware store for this brand so I had to settle for universal tank seal. Leak stopped! Product works as advertised!
