    Default Toto Neorest 500 vs. 550 vs. 600 comparison?

    I am going to be purchasing a Toto Neorest, but was a bit uncertain of tradeoffs?
    The Neorest 500 seems to have almost everything necessary, for about $2,690. The Neorest 550 is priced at $4,204 and the Neorest 600 is $4,372

    What do you get for the extra $1,682? Am I missing something or is the 500 have almost everything (except a nightlight and different styling)

    Thanks so much!

    My favorite now is the 550, it has the side panels that allow the hiding of the water supply.
    The 500 and the 600 have exposed water supply.

    The 550 being a Watersense dual flush, it also gets a rebate if available in your area.
    It also has a night light.

    Default Toto Neorest 500/550/600

    I bought a few Neorest toilets.
    I am looking at installing these in a house I just bought.
    I've read the forums here and have some questions:
    - do I need to purchase the install kits to be able to install the toilets or is everything I need already in the box?
    - how many amps do the power outlets require? 15 or more ?
    - do I need to change any piping inside the wall?

    The Neorest 500 needs 1281 watts
    The Neorest 550 needs 1284 watts
    The Neorest 600 needs 1288 watts

    They all come with the floor adapter and a water supply shutoff.
    The water supply is for a 1/2" pipe from the wall; this works best if you have 1/2" copper lines.
    PEX inside diameter is smaller and may need give enough volume.

    What doesn't come in the box, is the wax for the flange and the closet bolts to attach the adapter to the floor flange.

    A floor adapter for the 600

    A dedicated 20 amp circuit with GFCI receptacle will be the right choice.

    A dedicated 15A CB is fine...15A = 1800W, so even if you took 80%, you'd still be fine at 15A. Probably not a good idea to share that CB with anything else unless it was hard-wired and a small load, though.
