Porcelan foot flush vs regular TT toilet

Is this a gimmick or are there real advantages?

One I see is maybe a bigger seat circumference?

Thank you!

As the prime cleaner of the throne. I can tell you the porcelain bowl is so much easier to clean and keep clean. It does have a larger circumference on the seat and for some more comfortable.

I was also thinking it's easier to clean. Also less likely to take on stains? I love mine.

Coming up on 2 years with mine in October, never had a problem.

Well, I guess that's not entirely true. I have had the seal get a little dry before allowing water to drain, but that problem is not specific to porcelain toilets, and I have since learned several ways to deal with it.

Not exactly, they will eventually leak where the seal on the pedal shaft goes into the toilet. I will be changing one when we get back to our trailer in the fall.

Might just be your particular pedal - and certainly isn't related to the porcelain bowl. I had one in my 2007 Outback and never had a single problem. But it had a different type of foot pedal. Push down to flush. Raise up to add water in the bowl.

I put a little Vaseline on the rubber seal each spring and it kept it very pliable for the 8 seasons I used it. It always held water. I also put a little pink RV anti-freeze in the bowl when I winterized it. It was always still there in the spring when I de-winterized.

I did hear about problems with a few of the toilets in Outbacks, with the bowl not holding water. But that was usually due to dried out seals or defective ball valves that allowed water to seep by - out-of-round or otherwise defective.

Precelain is much more comfortable, I think. Little larger seat and more room in the front, for the boys...
