If you’re hunting for a commanding toilet that manages to roll out a great deal of comfort without eating up too much precious bathroom real estate, the Sterling Windham makes a smart choice.

Description

If you’re hunting for a commanding toilet that manages to roll out a great deal of comfort without eating up too much precious bathroom real estate, the Sterling Windham makes a smart choice. Although this toilet is heavyweight, it’s quite a space-saver despite the elongated bowl that keeps comfort uppermost. The seat is chair height in in full compliance with ADA regulations so standing and sitting is a cinch, too.

Although two-piece configurations often look cluttered, the squared-off lines of the Windham mean you get a toilet that looks the part while providing straightforward access if you need to carry out any repairs or maintenance. Everything you need down to the seat and installation hardware comes bundled so you can get going right out the box.

The single-flush mechanism calls for just 1.28 gallons of water per flush coming in well below WaterSense guidelines for efficiency. You could generate substantial savings on your water bill over the course of a year using up to 16,000 gallons less water than you would get through with a conventional 1.6 GPF model. While you won’t need much water for flushing, the powerful gravity-fed system gives you adequate oomph for most waste. As with any HET, you might need to reflush occasionally if you’ve got a heavy load of waste to deal with.

Despite highly attractive pricing, Sterling throw in a robust 5-year limited warranty giving you total peace of mind. You can’t ask for much from a toilet pitched firmly within budget territory.

To sum it up:

  • Single flush mechanism using just 1.28 GPF
  • Right-height seat is ASA-compliant
  • Elongated bowl for extra space
  • Complete all-in-one kit
  • 5-year limited warranty

Buying a toilet often involves a degree of compromise. Sterling manages to remove the need for sacrifice by attacking many factors head-on. What do we mean by that? Well, you’ll get an elongated bowl but a reasonable compact footprint. You benefit from exceptional water-efficiency without dipping out on too much flushing power. And all of this is achieved without needing to outlay a fortune. How is this HET received by customers, though?

On the Lowe’s website, the Windham manages a reasonable 4 star average out of 5 from 305 user reviews. The vast majority of opinion is positive. Comfort generates a great deal of praise in terms of both the elongated bowl that provides ample room for maneuver and the right-height seat making sitting and standing simple. The price is referenced repeatedly, especially in light of the powerful performance. Several satisfied buyers also comment that the toilet looks great while still remaining understated in appearance.

As you’d expect with any product, you don’t need to dig too deep to discover a few more negative reviews. The gripes are more general in nature than specific, though. As you’d expect with any high-efficiency WC using just 1.28 gallons per flush, several customers complain about needing to hit the flush button more than once with stubborn waste. One user in particular suggests the tank sometimes struggles to refill unless you tinker with the mechanism. The plastic seat is described as “too flexible” and “flimsy” on more than one occasion so you might want to consider upgrading this.

Overall, the Sterling Windham hits many pain points head on and emerges victorious. You’ll get admirable flushing performance for a HET, exceptional economy and a toilet that’s a pleasure to sit down on and easy to access even if you suffer from mobility issues. Throw in subtle, elegant looks and a dependable half-decade warranty and this toilet makes a great investment at a bargain-basement price.
