Keeping a toilet clean all the time is a big task for a working woman like me. So, I usually like to grab a toilet which is easy to clean and require less time and energy from my side. One year ago, I bought American American Standard 2989.101.020 concealed trapway Cadet 3 right height elongated toilet. I didn’t buy this product blindly.
I read several American Cadet 3 reviews and then decided to buy this model. When you search online, you also find its round bowl mate but don’t opt for it. Because the regular model is as simple to clean as this elongated one.
Why Choose American Standard Cadet 3 Toilet?
As I made it clear first, I was looking for a toilet which takes less time when it comes to cleaning. It’s really hard for me to spend an hour daily on toilet cleaning. So, when I researched this model, I read several times that it comes to the power flush system. Therefore, I considered this product. I have been using it for almost a year and I experience the same thing. I can clean it thoroughly once a week.
As far as daily cleaning is concerned, whenever I go to the toilet I press the flush button for 1-2 seconds just to turn on power flush. This mechanism cleans bowl quickly. During the whole year, I didn’t notice any kind of stain or mark on its bowl and outside seat.
But easy cleaning is not the only reason for picking this product, you might have read other American Standard Cadet 3 review. Now it’s time to read my review which is based on my personal experience with this toilet.
American Standard Cadet 3 Toilet Reviews
Here are some features which make it a better product than another toilet available in the market.
If you really like to grab a stylish toilet then this only product is only to add ultimate style to your bathroom space. This product is designed by keeping a style in mind. The Cadet 3 toilet has a concealed and fully glazed 2-1/8″ tramway which makes cleaning this product super smooth. In addition, it prevents clogging to a great extent. The elongated bowl is quite comfortable.
It is designed with a Right Height comfort height of 16-1/2 inches and this only change makes this tall toilet different from other toilets. It meets ADA compliant for handicap use.
One thing which you really like about American Standard Cadet 3 Toilet is its efficient flush mechanism. It comes with oversized 3″ flush valve, therefore all toilet waste goes quickly out. PowerWash Rim is another feature that keeps toilet bowl clean after every flush.
The Cadet 3 American Toilet Meets EPA WaterSense Criteria as well. Therefore, it uses water efficiently. You will get a low flow rate of 1.28 gallons per flush (4.8Lpf/1.28 gpf) which uses 20 percent less water than a normal 1.6 gpf toilet. No matter you use a power flush or a normal one, the whole operation is quiet.
Soft Close Seat
One thing which you notice in every American Cadet 3 toilet review is that seat complain. No doubt, the seat has cheap look and you might have to face problems while installing it. But I didn’t replace it. The reason is that this seat is designed perfectly for the model. It looks different at first but when you start using it then you get used to it.
I usually get help from an expert plumber because I’m not a DIY kind of person. But he charged me more because he told me that it was really hard to align this toilet. Though installation cost me a bit yet I’m satisfied.
I don’t have to face any toilet running problem at all. I suggest the same if you don’t know how to install it properly then get help. But if you are looking for a toilet which you are going to install it own your own then it doesn’t seem like a great option. Search around.
