    Thanks!
    Not to pile on, but as others have said, toilets are a small fraction of your overall building price. If you choose wisely, you should never have to replace them. If you do not choose wisely, you may ultimately spend more (possibly much more) in the long run than if you had spent more up front. Consider that, on this site, we've seen a number of reports of slow leaks in the bowls of some cheaper brands of toilets. A leaking toilet bowl can rot your floor, leading to big expenses.

    Just bite the bullet and get Totos. I have one Soiree ("regular" height) and two Gwyneths (ADA height). No big deal having different heights - though if I had to do it again, would have gone with ADA Gwyneths for all three.

    Can I change direction a little?

    We also have to decide on water heaters for the home... tank vs tankless, etc. Should I post my questions to the tank forum or the tankless forum? Both?

    Thanks.

    [QUOTE=Ian Gills;217853]Here comes the cavalry. Now where are all my other friends that love their Cadet 3s?



    Ian,

    Here's one of them now ! And since he's the boss, I'll let him speak for me!

    BTW, my Cadet 3, installed in March of last year has the original flapper, and so far, no problems.
