New Toilet Lines Combine High Performance, Eye-Catching Design at Menards
PISCATAWAY, N.J. (June 12, 2013) — Two stylish new high performance toilets from American Standard and Eljer, both promising superior flushing power, are now available at Menards.
The Champion 4 elongated toilet from American Standard boasts the industry’s largest siphonic trapway, delivering reliable, virtually plunger-free performance. The Diplomat Elite concealed trapway Right Height elongated toilet from Eljer offers sleek, easy-to-clean good looks combined with smart, bowl-scrubbing technology under the rim.
The Champion 4, as well as the new Diplomat Elite, can successfully flush 1,000 grams (2.2 pounds) of solid waste without clogging, attaining the highest possible rating in the Maximum Performance (MaP) test, an independent report of toilet bulk removal performance.
Both toilets are designed with do-it-yourselfers in mind, offering simplified installation. Everything needed is right in the box, so no special tools needed — it’s a DIYer’s dream.
Champion 4 Elongated Toilet
The Champion 4 has earned a name for itself as a golf-ball-devouring, high performance toilet that is top-rated by the nation’s leading consumer review magazine. Boasting the industry’s widest four-inch flush valve and 2 3/8-inch siphon trapway, the Champion 4 produces a faster, more powerful, and quieter flush. Plus, it’s backed by a 10-year warranty, unmatched by competitors that offer warranties of only one year for comparable products.
The Champion flushing platform features a funnel-shaped piston-action accelerator flush valve that forces the water to increase speed as it enters the bowl. Instead of a typical hinged flapper, the rigid plastic piston action allows 360 degrees of water to be released into the bowl in less than a second, delivering a precise, robust flush. This toilet also includes a slow-close seat that eliminates the loud slamming of standard toilet seats.
The Champion 4 elongated toilet is now available at Menards.
Diplomat Elite Concealed Trapway Right Height Elongated Toilet
Clean lines and sleek European styling belies the raw flushing power in the new Diplomat Elite. This toilet’s flushing platform features an oversized three-inch flush valve that allows more water to enter the bowl faster for greater flushing power and a large 2 1/16-inch fully glazed trapway to avoid clogging.
Tank sweating ― the water droplets that form on the outside of a toilet tank when the tank is colder than the air in the bathroom ― is a frequent problem in humid climates and homes that use well water. The exclusive Eljer Moisture Guard insulated tank liner significantly reduces the unsightly occurrence of tank sweating, keeping this Diplomat Elite toilet fresher and more attractive.
This toilet boasts a smooth silhouette and a concealed trapway that make it not only beautiful, but easier to maintain with no hard-to-clean curves. The sleek design of the Diplomat Elite is complemented by a slow-close, telescoping seat that conceals the seat ring for a showroom-like appearance when closed. This new toilet carries a five-year warranty on all mechanical parts.
With its comfortable 16 ½-inch rim height, the Diplomat Elite makes sitting down and getting back up less stressful on the body, compared to standard height 15 inch models. This new Right Height toilet from Eljer meets “universal design” guidelines that accommodate the needs of all age groups and mobility levels, and is ADA-compliant.

Shared Top Performance Features
- PowerWash: Both the new Champion 4 and Diplomat Elite toilets feature the American Standard PowerWash rim bowl cleaning technology for a quiet, yet powerful flush.

The EverClean surface is also incorporated into the matching slow-close seat on both styles.
