Considering a new toilet for a bath remodel and wanted to get some advice on the best flushing toilet for the dollar. I don't care about efficiency - in fact, I would rather not purchase a product that says it's efficient or green. If flushing power is just a matter of gallons of water flushed, then what's the highest capacity toilet? If there are other factors to consider, please advise.

First of all, welcome to permies! If you're looking for raw flushing power and don't want to spend megabucks on a commercial style throne, I think it's hard to beat one of the old school models with the cistern tank mounted up high on the wall. More height = more static head, which is more effective pressure for doing the business. Bonus: you probably don't need as much water per flush if it comes down with extra force.

I would suggest a commercial tankless toilet.
They need a 3/4" supply line but they totally get the job done.

The tech in my toilet must have an air bladder. As the water fills in the tank, the bladder gets compressed. When you flush, the water gets pushed through very fast making it very effective. I think you are saying you want effective toilet irregardless of efficient. This one is both. Having used it, i wouldnt buy one that doesnt have that tech if funds were available.

It does have 2 flush buttons. The pee button works for all uses.  Mine is a koehler but im sure others have the same feature of pressurizing the water.
