    Eco toilets

    Thanks, I was hoping for some plumber / consumer recommendations.
    I want to replace 2 toilets (one white, one biscuit, both elongated). I can get a rebate for using the high efficiency toilets.
    Is the EcoUltramax good?
    The Aquia is good looking, but I heard it is harder to install.

    None of these toilets are hard to install, but some are different. Plumbers don't like different. You have to drill some additional holes to mount the adapter to the floor over a normal toilet. Also, the water supply might have to be moved over, since they have a skirt that is sometimes wider than standard. Since many installations are not standard in the first place, you may not have to move anything.

    Note, Toto makes many toilets that use standard installation that any generic toilet will fit, too.

    The Toto Aquia works very well, I had one installed in my home for two years. It does take a little more time to install.

    The Toto Eco Drake works well too. An easy installation.

    something to be aware of though
    if you are install an aquia in a visible area such as I was (pedestal sink, doorway facing entrance) the rough-in sticks out the back and is very visible
    had to return and now thinking of a carlyle as a substitute (wife wants skirted toilet)

    Condensation on Aquia Tank

    Have you seen problems with condensation on the Aquia? If so, is there an insulation kit to reduce the problem?

    ANY toilet, even an insulated one, can have condensation on it if it is in a high use situation. The only way around that is live in a desert or put a mixer on it to warm the water up.

    I was wondering about that as well, I can see the plastic PVC sleeve from the side. Is that normal? Did I install that part wrong?

    You can see the end of the adapter on the Aquia, if you are looking from the side.
    If you are looking from this angle, it's hidden on the back side.
