The Rundown

Aesthetically, the WoodBridge Bath T-0011 is one of the sleekest and most modern toilets we’ve ever seen. With its clean lines and minimalist elegance, it’s the perfect compliment to the 21st century bathroom. Unlike the toilets of yesteryear, the T-0011 has a skirted trapway, which further aides in its sleek look but also makes cleaning around the toilet a breeze. Furthermore, WoodBridge Bath has equipped this toilet with a soft closing seat that’s fastened to the toilet with a stainless steel seat hinge; with such a design, the toilet seat won’t ever come down unexpectedly making a loud crashing sound, and also won’t loosen over time.

Becoming increasingly common in newly designed toilets – including this one – is a dual flush system. Depending on the type of waste being flushed, both 1.0 GPF (gallons per flush) and 1.6 GPF options are available in the form of buttons situated at the top of the toilet bowl. While the dual flush button system provides a modish, contemporary look, it also has the ability to save up to 16,500 gallons of water per year, meaning you’ll not only be doing right by the environment, but also your wallet. Adding to this, the T-0011 has a siphon flushing design, which results in an extremely quiet, yet powerful flush; WoodBridge Bath goes so far as to say this toilet won’t clog or leak, and will simply do its job, time and time again.

While often overlooked, the process of installing a new toilet can be quite a headache. While it seems crazy, a number of toilets don’t actually include a toilet seat with purchase, which has to instead be sought out and purchased after the fact. Adding to this, it’s not uncommon for the required hardware to secure the toilet to the floor, as well as the toilet seat to the toilet, to be purchased separately. As the T-0011 is an up-to-date toilet that follows suit with the simplicity of innovative products, the purchase of this toilet includes everything you’ll need to make this toilet your new throne.

We’d be remiss if we didn’t mention the 5 year limited warranty that comes standard with this toilet, which covers any porcelain parts that fade or any glazed parts that stain within 5 years of purchase. Also, there’s a 1 year warranty on the flushing mechanism and soft closing seat.



Galba Compact Dual Flush Toilet – The Runner-Up

The Rundown

While the T-0011 from WoodBridge Bath is our top pick, the Galba Compact Dual Flush comes in at a very close second. Like the T-0011, this toilet from Galba has an extremely modern look with clean edges and a slender form factor. Galba has designed this toilet with a skirted trapway, which contributes to the clean-edged look, and also means keeping your bathroom clean is a whole lot easier. If this sounds a lot like the previous review, keep reading (we told you the toilet was a very close second): the Galba Compact Dual Flush also comes equipped with a soft closing seat, meaning you’ll never have to worry about feeling embarrassed for making all kinds of raucous during your bathroom endeavors.

Also following suit with the T-0011 is this toilet’s dual flush design. Located at the top of the bowl, Galba has designed this toilet to offer two flushing options depending on the type of waste that’s being flushed. Removing the standard mechanical flushing handle, the dual flush buttons add a level of sophistication and convenience that you’d expect to find on a present-day toilet. The two toilets reviewed differ slightly in regards to their flushing abilities, with the Galba Compact Dual Flush offering 0.8 GPF and 1.6 GPF options, the former being 0.2 GPF less than the T-0011. While Galba doesn’t state how many gallons of water this technology could save per year, we can only assume that it’s slightly more than the T-0011. Another impressive feature that comes standard with this unit is its glazed surface, which inhibits the growth of stain- and order-causing bacteria, mold and mildew.

It seems as though toilet manufacturers have realized how difficult the process of buying and installing a new toilet has been in years past, as Galba, like WoodBridge Bath, includes everything you’ll need to install and began utilizing your new throne. As we stressed in the prior review, it’s about time toilet manufacturers started making the toilet buying process a more seamless experience, which is something any homeowner can appreciate.

While we’re sure this toilet checks off all the boxes for the type of toilet you’re interested in, you should be made aware that it’s slightly smaller than the average toilet. As our comparison chart above reveals, the T-0011 is 28.5 inches around, while this toilet is 24.5 inches. If you have a somewhat smaller bathroom, the Galba Compact Dual Flush will be absolutely perfect; however, if you’re looking for more of a standard-sized toilet, the T-0011 is probably going to be the better option.
