American Standard Cadet 3 Reviews [Updated 2019]

When the name is American Standard, I don’t think you need more reasons to love the product. American Standard Toilet is one of the trusted names in the toilet industry. They are making and selling top quality products for many years. The Cadet 3 is one of their most beautiful inventions. Allow me to give you some reasons to purchase this one:


The design of the American Standard Cadet 3 is the epitome of the stylish toilet. It will inevitably change the ambiance of your bathroom space. The finish is smooth and the white color suits perfectly. The elongated toilet bowl offers an elegant touch in design.

Powerful Flush

The efficient flush mechanism is the main reason to have the toilet in the first place. The toilet appears with a 3-inch flush valve which ensures excellent pressure and washes away all toilet waste quickly. The PowerWash Rim is another unique feature that helps to keep the toilet bowl clean after each flush.


The Cadet 3 by American Standard meets EPA WaterSense Criteria. Meaning, it doesn’t waste water. The toilet uses only 1.28 gallons of water in each flush and uses 20 percent less water than a regular 1.6GPF toilet.


Regular flush or power flush, the operation is quiet. It doesn’t create sound while flushing. Most of the flushing toilets in the market produce irritating noise during a flush. This product is an exception.

Soft Close Seat

I heard a lot of complaint about the seat. Even we advised replacing the seat in the first place as it is cheaply made and requires professional to install. Yes, the seat is cheaply made, but they designed the seat especially for the particular model. It doesn’t seem right at the beginning.

But if you get used to it, the seat will not disappoint you. Besides, the seat won’t make a slapping noise. Overall, the seat is decent in this price range.


If you have basic knowledge of DIY, you can install the product without any problem. But if you are someone like me, a professional would be a better solution. But for that, be prepared to spend some extra bucks. The installation cost is high.

If you don’t have basic knowledge about DIY and you don’t know how to install the toilet, it is recommended to hire a plumber. Otherwise, there is a chance that you couldn’t install it correctly thus facing the running water problem.

Price and Warranty

While shopping for anything, the most crucial factor is the price. A flushing toilet is an expensive product. One should purchase it after serious consideration. After analyzing all the features of the American Standard Cadet 3 and its pros and cons, I can proudly declare the price of the product is acceptable. Also, the manufacturer offers a limited time warranty too. So, you will never regret if you invest your money on this toilet.

Problems if Any

We failed to find out any severe drawback of the American Standard Cadet 3. It doesn’t have one. Still, nothing is perfect in this world so as this toilet. Finally, I’ve got a few minor issues, and we decided to share them with you. You should be aware of every single issue.

Anyways, the toilet seat is made of cheap material, and you cannot trust it. You have to be prepared with an additional seat.  The installation is complicated, which is another drawback of the product. Replace the seat that is included with the product and hires a plumber for installation.

Final Word

I am at the end of the article. It is time to provide my view about the American Standard Cadet 3. The design of the toilet is perfect for any modern décor. The elongated bowl is another loved feature of the toilet. As for the elongated bowl, the cleaning is super simple and easy.

You don’t have to spend your time and energy on cleaning anymore. The EverClean surface also keeps away stain and bacteria from the toilet.

However, the product does have some drawbacks, but none are serious. I mean you cannot overlook the American Standard Cadet 3 for such lame issues. The toilet is perfect in every possible way. The price is acceptable too. And we already mentioned every detail above.

Hope you will pick this one before the stock expires. I am leaving now. If you’ve anything else to know, feel free to comment. See you soon with many more!

Thank you!
