    Doing a BR reno and have narrowed down to Toto Aquia vs Toto Rowan. There doesn't seem to be many reviews on the Rowan. Anybody have experience with Rowan? Is it comparable to the Aquia in terms of flushing ability. Certainly is less $.

    I have not installed the CST405MF Rowan yet.
    It looks like they are using a bowl similar to the CST703 and the CST713, but taller. It has the tight bends on the trapway that the 703 had that I didn't like.

    I think it's also a two-inch flush valve. There's a video of it somewhere on youtube where a person thought it was a Aquia tank on a Drake bowl, until they were corrected. It looks like it flushes pretty poorly, at least from the video.

    The Aquia has met with near-universal acclaim from customers; given that, I wouldn't be inclined to try something that has obvious potential flaws.

    Just a bit of info to add, I was considering the Rowan recently and emailed Toto to ask where it was made. They told me it was made in Mexico.
