Quiet and Clean Flushes Every Time
My family and I love spending time with my mom. She happens to live a couple of hours away, so when we visit it’s usually for a long weekend. However, the one thing I dread is the need to use the toilet in the middle of the night. When I flush it, it’s almost like the sound reverberates across the whole house.
Of course, I thought I was the only one that had a problem with this because talking about how many times someone needs the bathroom during the night doesn’t exactly make for decent conversation over breakfast!
Goodbye Noisy Toilet
On one such trip with my wife and two kids (the kids are still at that age where they have no issues about topic of conversation), one of them stated in a loud voice “dad, I hope you don’t drink too much water before you go to bed”.
Both my wife and I glanced at each other with a somewhat knowing look and I decided enough was enough, mom needed a new toilet (or two). In just one sentence everyone knew this was a problem for the whole family.
However, I already had the answer and this was in the form of the TOTO MS604114CEFG-01 Ultramax II.

There are many things about this model that make it one of the best selling toilets on the market at the moment, and in the following few words you’re about to find out what they are.
Water Usage and the Flush
The amount of water we use has become a cause for concern with the Government of late, and toilets have come under scrutiny. The average older toilet can use over 3 gallons of water in just one flush! Imagine how much that is over one day for the average household.
This toilet only uses 1.28 gallons. Some of you may be a little skeptical about this, after all, if you don’t use lots of water how can you get a decent flush? Well, TOTO has thought about this. They use a Double Cyclone flushing system, a system which creates a powerful centrifugal action using 2 nozzles that not only does away with your waste in seconds, but make sure it doesn’t come back!
Cleaning a toilet isn’t the most fun job, and TOTO has thought about this too. Below are the features they’ve added.
- This is a one piece toilet, which means there are no seams where dirt and bacteria can settle.
- The rim doesn’t have any holes, which makes cleaning easier and is aesthetic on the eye as well.
- This is the feature I happen to like best. TOTO has used SanaGloss technology on the surface of this toilet. This substance is a type of ionized barrier that seals materials like ceramic and china. Because these materials can be porous, they not only take on lime-scale, they can also harbor harmful bacteria.
With SanaGloss, this isn’t an issue. Because the surface is smooth, particles cannot stick to it, which means a clean bowl every-time you flush and less cleaning as a result.
Perhaps I should have chosen this feature first because after all, that’s the reason I’m getting one of these for my mom!
Both the Double Cylcone flushing system and innovative “no slam” hinges on the lid and seat means, yes, hardly any noise!
You can expect to pay more for this toilet than you would for a two piece model, but given the benefits listed above it’s pretty well priced for a toilet of this standard. If you want to find a great reduction on the overall list price, take a look at what Amazon is offering this toilet for. You won’t be disappointed!
Given the fact that many manufacturers don’t include the seat with their toilets, this is actually one of the cheaper one-piece models around.
