Toilet - Elongated, WaterSense Certified, Pressure Assisted, 1.0 GPF - Belle Foret
Works great, saves water!
No problems. Swift sure flushing with minimal water usage. Very pleased with this toilet.
I bought 3 of these; 1 for my home and 2 for my rental apartments. One was damaged in shipping and quickly replaced—excellent customer service.

Perfection! Price, quality, service
Couldn't be happier. Better appliance than $100 higher priced units; 1.0 gpf saves water (and money) and works just fine. Pressure flush is quieter overall than standard gravity flush and hopefully will never need adjustment or maintenance. Slightly higher bowl (~17") is noticeably more comfortable for us old folks. Company service was great and delivery fast. Five stars all around.

Pressure Assisted Toilet
I got one of these pressure assisted toilets for my home. Liked it so much, I bought 2 more for my rental apartments. Uses very little water, but gets a clean flush every time. Positive water shut-off too.
One of the three pressure tanks gives a little less force and is not quite as good as the other two. All possible adjustments made and same water pressure, so this is a bit of a mystery.
One of the toilet bowls arrived cracked from shipping. It was quickly replaced at no additional charge to me.

I chose a Schon toilet as it fits in with the overall design of my newly renovated bathroom. I had bought a tub package from Vintage Tub as well. The toilet has a classic look without appearing old fashioned. The seat is high so it's quite comfortable. I am so pleased that the Schon toilet goes with everything else in my new bathroom. In terms of operation, the toilet is very efficient. The only drawback is that it's rather noisy.

This toilet was easy to install and flushes great. We have no issues with flushing toilet paper like the other reviewer reported and it flushes solids with no problem at 1 gallon. My wife even uses it to get rid of dinner leftovers. It might be it bit noisier than a regular toilet but is nothing like the noise that the other reviewer described. I would recommend this toilet to any potential buyers.

Houston, we have ignition
I was completely enamored by the concept of a 1 gallon flush, and the concept of water conservation With that in mind, I also wanted a toilet that functioned like a traditional toilet.
The list below is want I can’t stand about this toilet:
• Loud is an understatement. The flushing sound reminded me of an airplane toilet. Under no circumstance should you install this toilet in a place where noise is a consideration.
• Most flushes where toilet paper is used will require at least 2 flushes. This toilet pulverized single ply toilet paper requiring a second flush to clear the bowl.
The following points are positives about this toilet:
• Nice construction
• Easy Installation
• Great concept
Again, I really like the construction and concept of this toilet, but It doesn’t flush well when using paper, and this toilet is really really loud. I am actually considering purchasing a new toilet to replace this pressure assisted model.

Works about 80% of the time
FULL DISCLOSURE - THIS REVIEW IS WRITTEN BY THE CMO OF VINTAGE TUB AND BATH.
This toilet is a brand new model from the Schon brand. I took this toilet specifically to test it and I honestly find that I can only rate it as fair. 80-85% of the time, it flushes and clears the bowl. 15-20% of the time it does not completely clear the bowl – especially if there is any paper anywhere along the rim of the bowl. The central problem seems to be that there is little water washing the sides of the bowl before the main blast of water hits. Granted, anything in the center of the bowl just disappears the instant the toilet flushes. However, anything on the rim just does not fully flush. This requires a second flush and that defeats the water saving feature.
My master plumber and I checked that my water pressure (40-65 lbs) was above the 35lb max for the pressure assist unit. We also checked to make certain that the unit was properly vented to modern code (the unit is correctly vented at the unit). The manufacturer even sent me a replacement bowl and we installed it. So far it is working just like the first unit – only fair.
Another reason I rate it at only two stars is that it is louder (in my estimation) than a normal toilet. It certainly is louder than the toilet I replaced and the other two toilets in my house.
If you can live with the occasional 2nd flush and a little more noise, then I would get this unit. If not, I would look at another unit.
