    Cimmaron bowls cannot be mixed with any other model, as is usually the case with any toilet model and brand series.

    I don't know where you live, but here in San Diego, the Kohler Wellworth no longer qualifies for the rebate. The list is much shorter. To qualify, generally, a toilet either has to be a pressure assist ( e.g. Wellworth Elite) or it has to be one of the so-called golf ball toilets: Cimarron, Champion, Toto G-max, etc.)

    thanks for your input. i contacted ladwp this am and my unit does qualify for the rebate.my big concern was/is the amount of bowl wash that the cimarron apparently does not have,and to me(plain ol jo) the bowl looks similar,al-though from the outside only.thanx

    The Wellworth tank has the standard 2.0" flush valve.

    The Cimarron bowl works with the 3.25" flush valve.

    These do not mix and match.
    They even have different mounting systems.
    The Cimarron will plug less often, though it does lack bowl wash at the back.

    I can vouch for the Cimmarron not washing the bowl that well and you have to keep a toilet bowl brush handy but other than that it does flush anything you dump in it.
