This is a UK toilet. It does not say so in a description. I have been told that it requires special connectors for installation. Also, if there is limited space and water comes on a certain side, as in case with my bathroom, it is not possible to install. In US most toilets are supposed to be screwed to the floor, this model does not allow for it. Another problem, it does not have a detailed manual or installation guide, which might have helped. While stunningly beautiful in a picture, unfortunately it proved of no use to me.
This toilet is very nice aesthetically. However, it's a major pain when you try to install it: 1) I live in CA and the toilets connectors are standard 3/8" at outlet & 7/8" at the ballcock. However, the ballcock on this thing is 1/2"; WTF!!!! As you may know, toilet ballcocks are usually made of plastic. Therefore, a standard faucet hose which is 3/8"x1/2", with metal fitting on both ends, should not be used for them. You need a hose with a plastic end to connect to the ballcock. 2) ********* stocks this connector (Model FST20, Store SKU #106483), but it cannot be shipped to California. And none of the stores here stock it. I have also looked in plumbing supply companies w/o success. 3) From the reviews I have read these hoses leak from the FloodSafe end of the hose (i.e., 3/8" side). 4) When installed, this toilet will be flush against the wall, hence, covering the water outlet behind it. Therefore, you cannot use that outlet for any other purpose (e.g., bidet, hose, etc.) I'm very disappointed at Overstock.com for not mentioning these facts in the product description. Furthermore, I'm majorly disappointed with manufacturer of this product for not including the necessary connectors for the installation. This has been a terrible experience for me. I hope this review will spare others of the agony.

Beautiful toilet! I've searched for a while for a dual flush with sleek lines and this one is perfect. I have not had it installed yet so I can't comment on the function - but the form is brilliant. And - it delivered super fast - within 1 week of purchase.
