I soon will be replacing a main floor toilet. ADA was my first discriminator and quickly I further narrowed possibilities to:
For reasons first of flushing performance (wanted GMax, thanks to the excellent advice here and elsewhere-thanks!) and second of design I settled on the Toto Dartmouth. However, the tape measure tells me I have a tight horizontal squeeze with my sink and the toilet lid. (about 1 1/2 inch clearance, leaving the side flush lever under this narrow space) This presents some simple questions and for any advice I would be very grateful:
1. If I select the similarly designed one piece (and shorter) Plymouth, how much practically noticable performance do I lose with Power Gravity vs. GMax?
2. Do the MaP results for above models represent significant differences, or more like excellent perfomance within statistical differences. (Plymouth "scored" 675, the highly recommended Ultramax at 700 and Drake at 900. I assume based on recent assessments the Dartmouth would have scored similarly to the Drake) Should GMax mean more to me than the research results?
3. How much horizontal leeway is there when replacing a toilet (I have space on the other side): substantial construction required or minor (inexpensive) tweaking?
Thank you for this wonderful site. From Seattle, so will be calling soon for my purchase!
