    Well, I picked up a Gray Toto Ultimate Round tonight for $283. Now I am having second thoughts. I believe I can exchange it for the floor model Carlyle for another $100 or so. (The Ultimate is not a floor model).

    I like the Round's depth - this is for a very small bathroom.

    But I am worried about the low MaP rating. Will I regret owning the Ultimate? Should I try for the exchange?

    I had a 325 MaP rated MS854114-01 elongated Ultimate for two years with heavy use. One plug in two years.

    Way better then the other brands.

    Though the Carlyle for $100 more is a bargain too.
    If you get the Carlyle, the supply needs to be 7" to the left of center.
    The Ultimate can be 3" to the left of center.

    will I miss the higher Map rating though?

    i.e. will i see extra flushes etc?

    No.
    The Ultimate was the original Toto design that changed everything.

    Like I said, two years, one plug, I had to go look for the plunger on my plumbing van.
    We had 30-40 people over on weekends, and parties of 100-200 people.
    I also put four of them in my church in the womens bathroom.

    You got a screaming deal.

    Thank you

    I may still go for the Carlyle -

    If it were your home - which would you choose?

    Get the one you like and can afford. Any Toto will perform like a toilet should regardless of price so it's really hard to make a mistake.
