Update your bathroom with this dual-flush toilet featuring the powerful Out and Out flushing system and youll never have to flush twice. It features a nice soft-close seat that doesnt slam, so you dont have to worry about waking anyone up at night....more
We installed this toilet a couple of days ago and we love it. It took me about 3 hours, including removing the old own.
Installing this toilet does take a small amount of mechanical aptitude; about the only thing that looks like a typical U.S. toilet is the wax ring. Be sure to measure carefully. If you don't know how to find the center line of the drain/flange, measure from the edge to a wall, then again 90 degrees to that. Measure the flange diameter, divide by two, and add that to the wall measurements - that's the center of the hole. Now, subtract the dimensions given from the center of the hole to the screw holes from the wall number, and you have your hole positions.
Another suggestion - attach the water line to the back of the tank before setting the toilet in place. If like ours, it's close to the wall, it's awkward to attach then.
One last comment; if you go the bathroom, you may hear water drips. That's because as you add volume to the bowl, it forces water over the air trap and causes a dripping sound; nothing to be concerned about.
We purchased the Ariel Hermes dual-flush toilet from Overstock a couple years ago for one of the bathrooms we remodeled. We loved the look of it and it seemed like a good value. After about 1 year of use, the toilet was not flushing properly, requiring multiple flushes to get things down. I tried contacting Ariel and after some digging, finally got in touch with a distributor in NJ that carried parts for the toilet. I placed an order for a replacement flush valve. After a month or two, I received a valve that didn't fit. I contacted them again and was told that they needed to get an older model of the valve and that it usually takes months because it comes from Europe and they wait until they have enough orders to fill an entire container to ship to the US. About 9 months after I first made contact, I finally received the valve that fits. I installed it and it didn't help. RIght now, it takes about 3 to 4 full flushes to get everything down. So much for efficient, effective low-flow. We are now so frustrated that we've decided to pull it out and replace it with a TOTO model. We have purchased many things from Overstock and have generally been very happy which the merchandise we get. This is the one big exception. Save yourself the aggravation and stick with the more reliable brands. Also, please keep in mind that many of these reviews are written days or weeks after a purchase during the "honeymoon period". Look for reviews like this one written at least a year or two after the purchase to get a better sense of reliability. This particular toilet model has very poor reliability and poor followup customer service. A bad combination.
This is soooo cool looking in our newly remodeled 1/2 bath. The auto closing is a nice bonus. My husband was very impressed with the ease of installation. He did use an extra thick wax ring. It removes waste without problems. Because is works a bit differently than a standard toilet - it does have a different sound after the flush but only noticable to anal people like us.
One note of caution, since it's a Euro product obtaining repair parts might be an issue. We knew that going in.
IT's been a year since I purchased the toilet and I wanna to give it a try before writing a review! Great product for the $$!!!! I was looking at several places prior deciding to purchase it from Overstock and don't regret about it!!! Thanks you, Overstock!!! THe seat doesn't drop when close the top - it slowly gets down! One piece looks great and so easy to clean. Can't be happier. The price on one piece toilets is way higher at all other places i looked at! I'm happy!

I really like the look of this toilet and it seems to work well. My one issue was that we had to move the water supply because this toilet has a very different footprint from the standard american toilet, so the porcelain had to stand exactly where my water supply line came out of the floor. Thankfully this was not a big issue in our particular setting.

This single-piece porcelain European-style toilet is strikingly beautiful in appearance. The oval column-like tank contrasts artistically with the rounder shape of the toilet seat, making it almost a piece of sculpture. It is easier to clean than most two-section toilets which have tanks separate from and bolted to the bowl. The double-flush button makes for greater efficiency in water usage.
Installation is standard both as to outlet size and floor-bolt placement.
Shipping required only five days (California to Florida) and packaging couldn't have been more professional.
I was looking for something different to go in my newly built home and toilet was perfect. It is extremely well made and looks very modern which was the look I was going for. I like the dual flush because I am saving on water, so that's a win for my bank account and the environment. Well worth the price. Also it was packaged amazing and shipped from the west coast to the east coast and made it here without a scratch.
the product looks are great and is comfortable, however the flushing mechanism is made of plastic and not well designed. It does not always work correctly and needs some fiddling when the mechanism gets stuck. You pay less that in other brands and the looks are great, but once the equipment is installed you wished you have bought some other brand.

We bought this toilet from you 2 years ago. It is time to replace the seat, but I cannot find one that fits it. All the seats I find at Home Depot don't fit. The distance between the two holes on the toilet, which connect the seat to the toilet is exactly 6 inches. All the replacement seats have a distance of 5.5 inches. Is this a european size? Do you sell the replacement seat? on Sep 1, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
