About Us & Testimonials

Our history

upflushTOILET.com was originally started by master plumber Larry Sturm. With his 40+ years of plumbing experience, and his retail store proudly serving the Pittsburg area, Larry decided to share the upflush toilet solution with the world and first created upflushTOILET.com in the early 1990s.

As Larry was known for his quality work and reliability, his website only featured Saniflo products, due to their proven track record of customer satisfaction and superior durability. We have since come a long way from the original, self-made website, and we have serviced thousands of customers, but we hold true to Larry's original commitments:

  • Quality Products
  • Great Prices
  • Best Customer Service

Larry was immortalized as "The Faucet Doctor" in the November issue of the national magazine Home & Garden for their specialty plumbing store.  In Dec 2006, the Bob Vila Show called to interview him about a story they were doing on upflush toilets. And in August 2005, Larry was even quoted in The New York Times for his specific expertise with upflush toilet units. 

Every day, we are proud to continue Larry's commitment to integrity in customer service. Here are just a few examples of our customer testimonials. We hope to add yours to the list soon!


What do our customers say about us?

We are proud of the comments and emails we receive about UpflushTOILET purchases from our customers. We are honest that problems can occur with any man-made product but these toilets are exceptionally dependable and surprise even us.

We do guarantee that we try our best - to be the best!

I wish you all the best at UpFlushToilet for a great Thanksgiving Holiday. You truly have the best customer service. Everything I read about the fantastic customer service your company has prior to purchasing the toilet is true.
Thank you again,
Brian Q.

I'm a repeat customer very satisfied with your service.

The toilet arrived today in fine shape and is BETTER than I expected!

Well, it has been a pleasant experience ordering from you. The helpful emails answering my questions, ease of placing the order, and the rapid response to shipping and sending me the tracking number, your phone number, and offer of help, surely has made it a very pleasant experience to date. I intend to follow up with an even more favorable email when I have completed the installation which will be in several weeks. I have never been more anxious to use a toilet than I am with this unit. It will also make it possible for my wife to have a bathroom all her own.

My toilet, pump and extension pipe all arrived 2 days ago. What service,especially with the holiday season right upon us. Thanks so much and have a very Merry Christmas!

Well, the plumber just finished installing the toilet and it works well according to his test. I haven't put it to the real test but I'm sure that it will be used tomorrow. My wife was overjoyed to think that the main bath will be solely hers. She has already planned to move me out, (of her bathroom.) I will send you a real evaluation as soon as I use it a while, but so far you have lived up to every advertised line, so I expect the product to perform well. Blessings with thanks,

From the time I ordered the items to the time I received them was only a few days. Delivery was quick. The items were packed in larger boxes with foam and other shipping products to insure no damage.
