    Good luck to you on this. Unless your powder room is original or very old....if the inspector finds it was put in without a permit, he may very well turn down your grandfather request.

    By process of elimination, I think I've pretty much decided on the Toto Eco Promenade CST423EFG. It's got a round bowl, but that helps to conserve space. It's ADA height and it has the E-Max flushing system. There's not a lot written about the Eco Promenade on this forum, so I'm curious about it's performance. I did read in another post that virtually all Toto models with the 1.28 GPF perform well, but it would help me to hear from someone who has first-hand experience with this model.

    The powder room is original to the house.

    Between the Kohler Santa Rosa and the Toto Eco Promenade (CST423EFG), which is the better choice?

    I can tell you that the Promenade is going to have a great flush, be well-made, and have straightforward working parts for which you can find replacements anywhere. The Kohler is using that tower flush valve, which you can get a Korky replacement seal for easily but which is otherwise essentially-proprietary. I have no first hand experience with the Santa Rosa. Its advantage is the compact elongated bowl. The Promenade is probably a better toilet, but the elongated bowl is an advantage. That's why in the other thread I was recommending mocking up the difference between the round and elongated Totos, because it's an easier decision if you can use an elongated Toto, which is going to be superior to the Kohler.

    It looks like the elongated bowl will add about 2", and since the entire wall is only 43", that's 2" I really can't afford. This is a powder room, not used all that much, and I think sacrificing the elongated bowl is a good tradeoff for being able to use a Toto toilet. So -- decisions made: It's the Eco Promenade for the powder room and the Ultramax II (MS60411CEFG) for the other two bathrooms.

    Thanks to everyone who helped me through this. This forum has been SO helpful! Now, on to faucets and showerheads...

    MS604114CEFG is the model number. Just didn't want you to have any problems when doing searches with it.

    That was a typo and not misinformation. But thanks for the heads-up!
