Known for its popular features and fast, no-tools installation, Eljer expanded the performance, design and offerings of several of its leading models, which might lead to an inferiority complex among other toilets.

Three popular Eljer toilets will now leverage the innovative American Standard PowerWash bowl cleaning technology that scrubs the bowl with pressurized water from the rim during every flush to remove every last trace of paper and waste.

The Diplomat two-piece, Stratus high efficiency, and Somerville dual flush toilets employ this siphonic-action technology to ensure a powerful flush and superior bowl cleaning, every time. In addition, these Eljer styles also offer slow-close seats for a smoother, quieter close.
