No, I'm not talking about guns, I'm talking about toilets. If I were to try to bring in a pre-ban high capacity toilet from Canada, would I get stopped at the border? What would the penalty be?

Are you just planning on bringing in the bowl or the whole thing? Why not just to ebay or crapper.com and get your Made in the USA pre-ban?

No shit - I heard there was a real market for preban shitters. My stepdad's plumbing shop had a good selection of high-cap toilet tanks. If you want to smuggle something worth real money without the legal consequences of smuggling coke, how about smuggling refrigerant in from Mexico? When I worked at the chem lab, I used stuff that cost 400 bucks/3 liters, and we only got it at that price because we used a lot of it an we were an old customer. The manufacture of that stuff was banned as a ozone layer removing chemical.

If you get caught, tell them you don't plan on installing it. Tell them you collect toilets and this is a rare model only made in Alberta.

Hi cap toilets aren't illegal, they just aren't code anymore.

The new power flushers work even better though. My house came with the standard post ban and they suck. Already replaced one and will probably replace the other.

A plumbing shop owner I was talking to the other day confessed that our northern buddies is his secret place to refresh his supply of toilet brushes!
