In this Western Pottery toilets review we’ll delve into the classic Southern California brand that has provided high quality vitreous china products for 70 years.
Who Are Western Pottery?
Western Pottery designs and supplies some of the most efficient and effective toilets on the market qualifying for LEED building certification (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) and the highest municipal water rebates offered.
Western Pottery toilets are 100% tested and certified to meet or exceed industry standards for performance and water-savings.
They focus on quality, not quantity offering a limited selection of the most-popular styles, shapes and sizes. That’s why this Western Pottery review focuses on just their classic toilet design.
However as a manufacturer of a number of bathroom items they can offer design-matched suites that match their line of toilets.

Fans of Western Pottery say this is the best flushing toilet in America thanks to its exclusive Vortex-Jet flush action for full force flush and exceptional bowl cleaning performance.
The sani-glazed trapway gives years of sanitary trouble free use that together with the powerful flush should massively reduce any need for cleaning. The tank is specially designed for a quick installation to the bowl.
Western Pottery also provide some of the quietest flushing toilets despite the powerful Vortex jets.
Parts are consistent across the brand and are widely available as standard. For instance it takes standard fluidmaster fill valves so you can get most repair parts from a hardware store like Home Depot.
One downside to Western Pottery toilets is the lack of variation as they don’t differ much from this classic design. However it is available in a range of round front and elongated as well as standard height and easy height.
For this Western Pottery toilets review we prefer this easy-height model that conforms to the Americans with Disabilities Act as it fits more people’s needs and offers superior comfort.
They say themselves that this limited selection is because they focus on quality, not quantity offering a limited selection of the most-popular styles, shapes and sizes. Afterall, we don’t really need that many variations of a classic toilet design so it’s much more important that they make their few design really well.

What is WaterSense?
The WaterSense label is an award given to toilets that meet the latest water-saving criteria of the Environmental Protection Agency – and that includes Western Pottery toilets.
Toilets are by far the main source of water use in the home, accounting for nearly 30 percent of an average home’s indoor water consumption.
Recent advancements have allowed toilets to use 1.28 gallons per flush or less while still providing equal or superior performance. That’s 20% less than the federal standard of 1.6 gallons per flush. The WaterSense label is used on toilets that are independently certified to meet rigorous criteria for both performance and efficiency.
Toilets that conform to this standard – such as every Western Pottery toilet produced – are sure to save you money as well as delivering great flushing power.
