Hi Terry, and any other experienced members on this forum...

I'd like to seek your advice to choose between the first two models below, as I am limited by the installation height (28-7/8" Max) due to a countertop banjo that sometimes makes me wanting to tear it down and replace with a non-banjo countertop :)

a) Kohler Santa Rosa 360 Revolution 30810 one-piece ($325 on sale) / 28.5" H.
- Not sure if it has any glaze coat to help with the cleaning?
- Parts seem to be proprietary and more expensive to replace?

b) American Standard Cadet 3 Flowise Compact one-piece (~$310 on sale) / 28.5" H.
- This one seems to come with an EverClean glaze coat similar to Toto Cefiontect?
- Parts seem to be standard (Fluidmaster) and easy to find and replace?

c) The better option would be the TOTO Eco UUltramax (27.25" H) but it's out of my budget ($500+)

a) Kohler Santa Rosa has a 360 Revolution swirling flush, similar to Toto Ultramax II, so flushing might be better?
- However, the trapway design ends abruptly with a 90 degre into the waste opening so that might potentially cause more clogging issues - which still need to be proven in real life experience?
- On the other hand, Kohler seems to have a better quality control in general than AS based on homeowners/plumbers feedback, eventhough nowadays no longer as good as it used to be.


b) AS Cadet 3 Compact has a siphoning flushing system that seems to work well, not sure how it compares to the Kohler Revo system, and come with EverClean glaze coating.
- Its trapway design is also more curved than the abrupt 90-degree Kohler so maybe a better flushing system?
- However, AS quality control could be a real issue and I could end up with a toilet with manufacturing issues like enamel/glaze coating, cracks, leaks... that would be a real headache, take time and cost to return and replace...
