Are you on the hunt for a new toilet, but don’t know what to go with? Well, today we want to do an American Standard Titan vs. Titan Elite comparison, just so you know what the main differences and similarities are. We hope we can help you come closer to a final decision.
American Standard Titan
Here we have a fairly reasonably priced toilet, one made of vitreous china, so it’s quite durable, and it comes with a powerful ProOne flushing system that can move a whole lot of waste in a single flush. Keep in mind that this is a two-piece toilet set, so there is that to deal with in terms of installation. Either way, let’s take a closer look at the American Standard Titan Toilet right now. Keep in mind that this thing comes with an elongated toilet seat, which helps quite a bit in terms of seating comfort.
Review of Features
One thing that we do want to stress about this particular toilet is that it is made out of very durable vitreous china. Generally speaking, it should last for at least 10 years, if not longer, and it’s very hard to crack or break. What you might also like about this material is that it is very easy to clean, and it does not streak easily.
Next, what is quite impressive about the American Standard Titan toilet is that it features a really powerful ProOne flushing system. This thing is rated highly and is able to move around 1 kg. or just over 2 pounds of solid waste out of the bowl with a single flush, so it’s definitely quite powerful and efficient. Moreover, this thing uses only 1.6 gallons of water per flush, so it’s pretty environment-friendly, water saving, and each flush won’t be too hard on your wallet either.
Flush Valve and Trap Way
What is nice about this toilet is that it comes with a large 3-inch flush valve. This allows the vast majority of the water to drop down into the bowl at once, therefore creating a lot of power that can move a lot of debris at once. On that same note, this toilet also comes with a 2-1/8 inch trap way, which is slightly larger than the average trap way, which is nice because it helps prevent clogging and allows for the free flow of waste.
The American Standard Titan only has 2 bolt caps, and is quite easy to install. Even being a two piece toilet, it’ still quite easy to install, which is always nice if you are a DIY person, or just don’t want to pay a plumber for something you could do on your own.
- Water efficient
- Space friendly and easy to install
- Powerful flushing system
- Large valve and trap way for good flow
- Very durable construction
- Harder to install than a one-piece toilet
- A bit loud
Here we have another nice toilet for you to take a look at, the Titan Elite, which is designed not only for its flushing power and water saving capabilities, but also for comfort. What really stands out about the Titan Elite is that it comes with a tall 16.5-inch toilet bowl, which makes it very easy to sit down on and get up off of. It’s a good toilet if comfort and ease of use is a main concern.

So, the Titan Elite is also made of vitreous china, which we are perfectly fine with, as this is a very durable material. It won’t easily crack or break, and should last for at least 10 years. The material used here, as well as the glaze, is designed to make this toilet easy to clean. Waste and streaks do not easily build up on it, which is important to note. We also like the EverClean coating, as it helps to stop microbes from building up, thus reducing odors, bacteria, and the need for cleaning.
The Titan Elite features a pretty normal flushing system which simply uses water and gravity to get rid of waste. The trap way features a siphonic design, as it is made to siphon away all manner of waste. Just like the American Standard Titan, the Titan Elite also only used 1.6 gallons of water per flush, therefore making it very water efficient.
Furthermore, it has the ability to flush down around 1 kg. or 2.2 pounds of solid waste with a single flush. Something which we also want to note about this model is that it comes with a pressurized water rim which helps to stop waste from building up under the rim.
Valve and Trap Way
The Titan Elite comes with a very large 3-inch flush valve, which helps to force a heck of a lot of water down into the bowl at once, more than with the other toilet we just looked at. The 2-1/8 inch trap way also makes quick work out of any waste flowing through it. All in all, it’s a fine toilet to keep in mind.
Just like the model we viewed above, it comes with 2 bolt covers and it’s very easy to install. Now, it is a fairly big toilet, so it will require a decent amount of space.
- Water efficient
- Easy to install
- Tall for comfort
- Very large flush valve
- Host of other beneficial features
- Quite large
- Very noisy
There you are guys, everything you need to know about both of these toilets to make an informed purchasing decision. To be fair, they are both pretty similar, with just a few smaller differences, so it might just be a matter of personal preference over everything else.
