The KOHLER K-6669-0 is a beautifully crafted toilet from the Memoirs collection. Featuring a polished chrome trip lever, elongated shape bowl, and a ridged tank, this is about as aesthetic as they come. In this article, we’re going to be looking through the specs searching for any pros and cons. We shall also be looking at its flushing mechanism in detail, highlighting important aspects of the flow rate, rim wash, and performance. If you’ve had the chance to read our toilet buying guide, you will be aware of specific features we look for whilst researching. We believe the K-6669-0 has many of these qualities.
Concealed trapway – We feel there is something missing when a toilets trapway isn’t either skirted or concealed. They lose a few points in the style department. The fact is that the Memoirs offer a hidden trap, offering a smoother surface that looks great. This style is known to be a little more expensive than normal traps, but we think the additional expense is worth it. After all, everyone wants a bathroom that looks modern.
Comfort height – The toilet bowl height is not often a talking point when you search around online. Nevertheless, it isn’t something that should be ignored. To break it down into simple terms, manufacturers produce two forms. One, is the standard height bowl and can measure anywhere below 17 inches in height from the base to the seat. Then you’ve got toilets given the comfort height label. But what does this mean and why is this necessary? Ultimately, it means the bowl is taller than average, usually 17″ and above, but they can also be found up to 19″ dependent on the brand and model. The idea is to provide customers with accessible bowl designs that meet ADA standards. This is a great option for people wanting a more inclusive home, and are aware of the needs of others.
Flushing performance – Before we look at performance, read our guide on how toilets flush power is checked. An effective flush gets a score of anywhere between 500g and 1000g. The Kohler K-6669 achieves a 1000g score. Which is top end of the scale and very powerful. So if you’re wanting a lavatory that doesn’t get blocked up easily, this could be worth consideration.
Efficient – What’s perhaps more impressive than the performance above, is its ability to use small, conservative amounts of water to do so. It meets EPA WaterSense guidelines, with a 1.28 GPF rate. Great news for people looking to cut back on household water bills. In some states you may qualify for rebates or vouchers too. Compared to the current range of 1.6 gallon toilets, 1.28 gallons save an impressive 20%.
Cost – Whilst it has all the functionality you expect from a top toilet brand, you should know that it costs a little higher than average, but still within the affordable mid tier price point. At around five hundred bucks though, it may not be a option for low budget users. And to them we say, keep your eyes open for new reviews coming shortly.
