Compare two LOW toilets and do I need a tank in the lowes

Customer Question

compare two LOW toilets and do I need a tank in the lowes version? I will buy a cushion seat regardless which one i get. THe use of these will be for adults that will like to "squatt" when having a bowel movement and be as low to the ground as possible. it will not be used for children.. lol,, sort of be a simple version instead of using the "Squatty Potty"***-***-****.001.020_0__

The Lowes version is a commercial toilet. It requires a Flushometer not a tank. It's unlikely you have a 1" water line available for a Flushometer never mind the extensive re-piping it would require. American Standard makes good products.

Sorry for the delay. So the two piece unit that comes together makes more sense for a homeowner.

Yes, the toilet from Lowes is not designed for residential use. The American Standard toilet is the better option.
