We bought the Carlyle because of the sleek looks and the Toto reputation. We like it very much but there were a few surprises. We didn’t have a clue how the Unifit works. Neither did our plumber! It took him 4 hours to install. We also had to move our water supply pipe over a few inches to accommodate the skirt which required tearing up the wall and soldering on a new valve. One annoying thing is that when you add water to the bowl and it begins to fill it starts draining down the back of the trap and makes a “tinkling” sound (which is what I try to avoid) while I am using it. Toto says it is because it is not level so the water drops off the back into the trap instead of sliding down it if it is level. I am sure they are right and will install the next one level.

We install the Carlyle for $179.00, the same as for any toilet. It takes us an extra 10 minutes, not three hours.
