In response to Re: problems with Toto Supreme fill valve
: We are very unhappy with our Toto toilet. We have had repeated problems with the fill valve (among other things--like incomplete flushes). The first fill valve replacement was a Korky equivalent, which the plumber said would work, but was too high for the tank, plus water leaked into the bowl. Then we insisted that a new plumber install a Toto brand. The valve popped up in the middle of the night, displacing the tank top, and flooded the bathroom. Another plumber put in a Toto brand fill valve. It hisses. The plumber said, just jiggle it, it's probably just sediment (it isn't). Is this a known problem, or have we just had bad luck with a lemon or two?

: We are ready to give up and install another toilet, perhaps an American Standard Champion.

It appears your bad luck is in finding a competent plumber, (and maybe a defective part or lemon as well).
If the toilets fill valve was defective, it is always advisable to install only OEM replacement parts.
If you decide to go with A/S, keep in mind the the Champion is only available in white, handicapped height and elongated.
Good Luck. e-plumber
