Thread: Toto Carlyle vs. Toto Aquia

  1. #1

    Default Toto Carlyle vs. Toto Aquia

    After spending many interesting hours learning about toilets on Terry's site and this forum, I've narrowed my toilet decision down to the Toto Carlyle or the Toto Aquia. Is there any reason to go with one over the other (other than price, installation differences, and dual-flush options)? This will be a replacement toilet in an existing tiled bathroom.

    Needs 4 holes drilled through the tile.

    comes with seat
    Water supply needs to be 7" to the left of center.

    Aquia on tile,
    bowl and tank.
    Needs 6 holes drilled through the tile.
    Takes a little more time for the installation.
    Skirted bowl
    Dual flush of 0.9 or 1.6 gpf
    Saves more water, less water in bowl
    seat is ordered separately
    Water supply can be 3" to the left of center.

    Most spec sheets mention 8" to the left of center for the water supply.

    Old thread, but seemed the best place for this question. With the water supply 3" left of center won't that put the valve in a difficult to reach position, or even possibly interfering with the toilet skirt? The following pic helps to show this, along with the knowledge that the skirt is 5" from center and will be about 4" or so off the wall (or so I hear from another post).
