American Standard Toilets, how come so many plumbers dislike that brand/line? What is wrong with it?


***Not sure if some of you who have already responded will see this, but i have dealt with a few previous plumbers, one is a great guy.  He does the work and doesn't sell toilets so he doesn't gain any "profit" and just does the  work.  Several plumbers i have dealt with and spoken to in the past all have said don't buy American Standard.  Its always Kohler or Glaser Bay for less expensive (if at Home depot).

Update 2:

I am having a handy man do it.

My current toilet is an American Standard and i believe is original to this house so it is likely 50 - 60 years old, older them me, and is/was likely much better built then the American Standards that are built today.

    In 1923 priests tried to change the calendar; Holy Fire didn't come down; Turkish guards killed these priests; Ruski Orthodox replaced them.

    Holy Fire ended with Patriarch Irenaios. Now it's faked by heretics. Irenaios is the last Orthodox Patriarch. Irenaios blessed Catacomb movement.

    What you need is antimins (remains of saints sewed into a towel, one cup, one spoon, wax candles, nonkosher non-yeast nonbarcoded nonqrcoded bread/wine, etc.)

    Electricity is from Satan; yeast is grown on pig bacteria, etc.

    Barcode = Druid black magic curse; QRcode = ancient Mayan curse...

    Kosher (K) or Union of Orthodox Synagogues (U) = sprinkled with blood like Mosis did. Underneath the entrance of synagogue lies New Testament...

    Orthodoxy = the only true faith; Roman Catholics tried one cup - one spoon ritual and got sick with Bubonic plague; if heresy enters Orthodox monastery then monks/nuns will get sick with flu/tuberculosis (for instance); Orthodox churches who closed for COVID or had disposable cups/spoons or dipped spoon into alcohol are no longer brides of Christ (now they serve Satan and honor Satan's new COVID religion).

    Don’t go into UFO to be “healed” by evil demons; demons never do good.

    SSN is written as a barcode/QRcode; then it's put into a chip; chip is put into vaccine; chipped people are influenced (by super computers) to receive grey plastic card World Passport with no name on it (but when they stretch their hands to get it, gov't clerk presses secret button to administer the unforgivable green 666 tattoo by isotope rays). If you reject mark of the beast then your direct ancestors go to heaven (according to saint Vyacheslav Krasheninnikov from Ural).

    Birds participate in time creation. It's a sin to kill birds. Dinosaurs live under our level; they will get out through sinkholes and lakes; to kill them, go for their nerves. Save the birds; but kill the dinosaurs. First dinosaur will come out of Volga River in Russia. Scientists don't see dinosaurs under our level because of radiation. Sinkholes happen because people dig for resources underground and because earth is heating up.

    Source(s): mRNA vaccine by Moderna contains *Luciferin* dissolved with *66.6* ml of distilled *phosphate* buffer solution... ...mark of the beast...that's what it is... all vaccines are chipped; all vaccines have cells of aborted fetuses in them; Hank Aaron died from the COVID-19 vaccine

    Maybe they are prejudiced against the Japanese owners, Lixil.

    American Standard is a good brand and plumbers do NOT dislike it.

    they would rather sell you a toilet from a more exclusive line -- higher profit margin.  American Standard was indeed the 'standard' some years back ... and they were sold by near everybody, which forced plumbers to compete on labor cost [meaning their profit].  Suggestion:  Check prices online well in advance.  Check "flush power" ratings and volume of water used per flush [your local building code may limit this].  Print out the offer price for the one you like.  then go shopping for a plumber or handyman to install it and dispose of the old one (garbage in my area won't take a toilet).  When it is installed, pay the added 15 bucks for an extra thick wax seal -- this may well save a $150 future plumber's bill, as well as your flooring.  -- grampa

    American Standard is an old-line high grade toilet.  Buy an expensive one and get the best manufacturing processes.  Kohler is an alternate equivalent.  Pay attention to the design and detail.  They are different.
