    quote; How faster can these fill compared to a 528 MP?

    Interesting question, because when Kohler installs Fluidmaster fill valves in their toilets, the insert a "flow restrictor", (which often gets plugged up), in the bottom to "slow down" the fill rate and make it quieter. A lot of manufacturers make, "only for professional" versions of their products, (Kohler was one of the original "only to contractors" companies), and it usually takes a couple of months before HD and the other big box stores are selling them, when they discover they can sell a lot more through the big boxes, even if they have to sell them cheaper than to the legitimate trade routes.

    Toto and Kohler both have toilets which do NOT have a refill tube on the fill valve. The rely on "fall back water" and the last water out of the tank to restore the water level in the bowl.

    hj, TOTO has some low end toilets that are like that. The CST703 to CST724 series. If those are the TOTO products you have seen, you've seen the worst.
    I won't sell those models. Those are their low end "wash down" bowls.
