Well, unlike the two guys at consumer reports, we are plumbers.
We don't give advice on margarine, or floor cleaners, but we do know about the products that we are installing every day.
Any of those toilets mentioned would work fine.
If you want to spend a bit less, then the Drake should be included too.
I know people that have the Aquia, and one of the things they love about it, is the bowl, how easy it is to clean.
The Drake and the Ultramax have more water in the bowl, but the trapway is exposed. It does install easier though.
If you really want to spin things up a bit, something like the Vespin, Carlyle or Soiree, with the skirted bowls could be considered too.
Toto Vespin II CST474CEFG with SS114 Softclose seat.
This bowl was installed on a 13-1/2" rough-in using the 14" Unifit adapter.
The water shutoff can be as close as 5-1/2" to the left of center, unless it's higher off the floor, and then it can be even closer to center.
This shutoff had been replaced with a new 1/4 turn valve with brass nipple through the wall.
Installation was by James Love of Love Plumbing & Remodel 206-949-5683
In some of the older Seattle homes, the old toilets had been wall mounted tank toilets.
Those typically are 14" rough-in and need a flange repair to use standard closet bolt connections at the flange.
Everything is on the truck for that.
The Vespin comes with a standard 12" adapter or you can order a 10" or 14" adapter depending on your rough-in distance.
