I moved into my house abotu 3 year ago and the toilet in the basement only gets used for #1's because it's not really powerful enough for #2's. So, we hardly use the basement bathroom. It's a house form the 70's. Will buying this toilet fix that issue or is it a plumbing problem? I've tried drano and all that stuff and nothing has made it better.
Hard to know for sure if without checking the lines but if the toilet is bad this should fix it.

Apparently it's completely out of stock at HD, supplier isn't manufacturing it anymore. (It's showing out of stock for elongated, and the round one still seems like you can buy, but it won't actually ship)

A really good price, will probably end up going to Home Comfort Center for it.

Great customer service at plumbingonline.ca. I purchased three Toto toilets in 2017. I didn't realize one was broken until I opened the boxes, a month after they'd been delivered. The company shipped a new toilet the day after I sent pictures of the broken one.

The one we're discussing is great. 6 years and no maintenance. That being said, I have two Kohler Bancroft toilets in my house, and 10 years later haven't replaced any parts.

So I don't know what sort of toilets you've been buying, but I'd stop buying them.

My Toto has been living up to expectations the past few years. Only issue was had to replace the flapper twice the past 4 years. Always thought they should have longer lifespans

You experience different gravity between your basement and other floors?

The problem may be the user also.. flapper is pretty normal replacement part, but handle?

Have you ever jackhammered a basement slab before? The drains run sideways at a very small pitch until they reach the main sewer out.

On the second level, my poo gets to fall down a two story pipe through a utility wall.

The point is - the experienced gravity is the same 1g. And further, this toilet won't make the poop travel any faster in said plumbing because as it's still just a regular siphon jet toilet. You may have a point if this were a pressure-assisted toilet, which it isn't.

Yes, toilets are science we don't think about much. I did my research back in the day and went with 3 EAGOs.
We would generally plug up one particular toilet on a weekly or biweekly basis. Now probably once in six months.

No, your point is that gravity is 1g. My point is, go do some high school force diagrams to see how gravity affects acceleration and velocity in a freefall vs on a grade of 1/8" per foot.

I can't believe I'm debating poo physics on RFD.

It flushes better than most toilets with more ability to clear mass in independent testing, therefore it will be pushing things down the pipes better. This isn't rocket science. It's poo science.

good price but I prefer the 1 piece toto's like the Ultramax II. The lowest I see them go for is $400 all in on kijiji wholesale sellers.
Only have to clean them like once a month with soap/vinegar mix.

Have to disagree with you. We've got both Toto (Drake 2) and Kohler (Elmbrook) and I have to say I prefer the Kohler. I think it has a better, stronger and quieter flush.
