Another Aquia II, Aquia III confusion question.
I am interested in buying the Aquia II or Aquia III next week. I do not need Universal height of Aquia III.
Before buying, I would like to know how Aquia II or Aquia III flushing performance and skid mark creating compares to Drake or Ultramax.
I also would like to know how the Aquia II or Aquia III is installed. Looking at http://docs.hdpi.com/PE-Links/Toto/T...risonChart.pdf , it seems that Aquia II or III do not have the plastic trap like the Aquia. But Aquia II and III do have an "outlet flange". Does the outlet flange need to be screwed in to the floor?
I am presuming that Aquia II and III are installed differently from Aquia. Could not find Aquia III or III install instructions on Toto's site.
Thanks, Terry, for this great forum.
Aquia Mineral Buildup Issues
I have had an original Aquia for just over 2 years and I'm generally very happy. It does seem to "mark" more easily than other toilets I've owned. The one problem I wonder if others have had is a mineral buildup. I can generally remove the buildup with some CLR and elbow grease, but it's frustrating that I've had to deal with it. It's likely caused by a habit of not flushing urine to further conserve water (we picked up that habit during a drought last summer). I've asked the family to use the 1/2 flush since the first cleaning, but the buildup seemed to return within a few months.
Anyone have any ideas or suggestions? Thanks.
Aquia II Button Adjustment
I have three Aquia II toilets installed in my house. The hardest part was drilling through the tile. Other than that, they were quite simple to install once you figured out the somewhat cryptic instructions. This was my second Toto install as I had installed a Carlyle toilet a few years ago. Overall, I am quite satisfied with the toilets, except for one thing.
The flushing buttons on top do not seem to sit the same on all of the toilets. Of the three, only one has no play in the buttons. On the other two, the buttons are a little more recessed than the third. I found a video of a Carona toilet in AU that has an adjustment for the button height so you can remove the play in the buttons.
Do the Aquia II toilets have an adjustment like this?
Bought one of these for a small bathroom
It seemed to be sized just right and was light enough to have shipped UPS. I do agree that the lack of water in the bowl is a little disconcerting and sometimes (rarely in my experience) requires you to wash the bowl, it seems to handle most of everything that's thrown at it and I've only had it jam up once in two months.
My general contractor seemed to find this a little bit more difficult than other toilets to install, but not really a lot (and it could have been more that it was all new plumbing in a new bathroom). It does have a weird tinkle noise post flush which others have commented on, but nothing really annoying.
Overall, I'm happy with this thought he button is definitely a little difficult to push if you're actually on the toilet and you might have problems if you have long finger nails.
I'd buy one again.
