    Hi:
    I've now read too much info. I can choose either an American Standard Studio, an EAGO, or a TOTO Aquia i or ii (what is the difference? any links I've found don't work properly). I'd much rather work with the supplier of the American Standard but I can't find many reviews of this model. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    On the Aquia:

    They are ALL 1.6gpf/.9gpf Dual Flush, Elongated, Skirted, 12" rough-in (except where noted)

    CST412MF: Universal Height, 2-piece
    CST412MF.10: Same as above, with a 10" rough-in

    CST416M ("Aquia II"): NOT Universal Height, 2-piece

    MS654114MF: Universal Height, One-Piece, comes with SS114 Seat included

    All the Aquias are popular, reliable toilets, on which Terry has had less than a 1 percent return rate after selling thousands of them, and people come back for more. In short, most people who choose to buy a dual-flush and who buy an Aquia like it very much.

    I would say get the toilet that you want, rather than the supplier that you want.

    Again I concur with wjcandee's fine advice. The supplier is not a very important factor. You should understand that skirted Toto toilets, Aquia being one of them, require using the Unifit adapter. This requires a somewhat different installation procedure that other toilets, but it is not especially difficult. The Unifit adapter is Toto specific so plumbers who have never installed them sometimes are a little apprehensive about them. However, if they can, and will read the installation instructions, it is very doable and should take just a little more time than a regular installation.

    Well, Gary is almost right! The Aquia does require a different installation than a 'normal' toilet, but it does not use the UnifFIt adapter as used in something like the Vespin. It's an adapter unique to the Aquia.

    Thanks for the correct, Jim. I did not know there was another type adapter.
