Kohler is known for its bathroom products. They continue to manufacture high-quality products and they are being used all across the world. They have a worldwide presence and have set a very high benchmark for others and for themselves as well to follow. That’s why decided to do a comparison between their two-successful product line, Cimarron and Highline.
The Kohler Cimarron vs Highline comparison is done based on their looks, how much water they use per flush, the type of flushing system, or technology they use. All these properties are then compared, and a final verdict is reached deciding which toilet from these two series is better.
Kohler Highline vs. Kohler Cimarron
Design and Construction
We start the difference between Kohler Highline and Cimarron by starting with their construction and comparing their design. Both these toilets are made up of vitreous china but the Highline classic weighs more than the Cimarron. In terms of design, the Highline is very simple in its design, whereas the Cimarron is a bit more classic in its design. However, there are lots of color choices available for the Highline toilet, whereas there is only one color available for the Cimarron toilet.
In terms of design, these two toilets are almost like twins. They both are two-piece toilets, having their seat height similar to that of a chair so that the user doesn’t face any difficulty while sitting or getting up from them. There is this slight difference in these two exceptional toilets. The Highline toilet has an elongated seat which gives the user more space to sit on whereas the Cimarron toilet has an elongated bowl that provides more space and comfort.
The Highline cuts in this department because it has more color options available as compared to the Cimarron.
Both, the Highline and the Cimarron consume 1.28 gallons of water per flush, making them highly water-efficient because of which both of them are WaterSense certified. This feature helps in saving a lot on the water bill as well and makes the user more environment-friendly as well. However, it should be always kept in mind that the design of both these toilets is such that the less amount of water being used doesn’t affect the performance of any of them and they both can easily flush all the content in the toilet.
The flushing system of a toilet is its most important part and determines how effectively and efficiently the toilet will be able to clear out all the content in it and clean it as well. The flushing system is usually the criterion that usually decides which toilet is better than the others.
The Cimarron toilet has a canister flush system. In this system, the tank comprises a powerful plunger that is able to clear any type of clog or blockage in the tank so that the water can easily flow from the tank into the bowl to clear out all the content.
With the Highline toilet, Kohler’s Class Five system is used which apart from making the flush much more effective, generates a rinsing power flush as well which helps in cleaning the toilet on its own. This feature makes the toilet stay clean for a longer period even after repeated use.
Since there is no provision of self-cleaning in the Cimarron toilet, it loses out to the Highline.
