    I like the Toto Soiree and the Guinever the best,
    Followed by something like the Toto Ultramax, and then Drake.
    The bowls with Sanagloss are the best.

    The Caroma is harder to keep clean.

    The Eljer Titan drops off in quality as does the Cadet 3

    I don't sell as many of the pressure assist toilets anymore.
    Those would be the Gerber or American Standard with Flushmate.

    What's wrong with pressure-assisted flush?

    What's wrong with pressure-assisted flush?
    For a home?

    Or for a resturant?

    For homes, people tend to think they are too startling.
    They tend to thump the pipes a bit when flushed too.

    In a noisy location, you would notice these things less.
    At 2:00 AM, next to the Master bedroom, you notice these things.

    Or, if you are the guys testing at Consumer Reports, you don't notice at all. Dooh!

    I like Toto a lot. I've found that some of their tank types don't have a very sturdy back rest. The tank top and tank are a bit wobbly. You get rubbing china on the tank lid. I installed a Mercer suite by toto in my house, except for the tub which wouldn't fit.
