Carol,
The fill valve on the Ultramax and other high end Toto models uses a fill valve made by Korky. These have been used by plumbers for some time now.

The 3" flush valve, is a Toto original. Much more volume of water can be moved than with the antiquated 2" valve. Some companies claim they use an engineered 2" valve, Really?? The two inch valve has been around for a hundred years. They must have some pretty old engineers.

The three inch flush valve really kicks it for the Toto line.
