    I need a new 12" roughed in toilet. It's a little overwhelming with all the choices out there. I never realized how complicated toilets can be. lol

    I've read on a couple of sites that the Toto Drake is the toilet to buy. I welcome peoples opinions and also advice on where good pricing can be found for an item like this. Thanks in advance!!

    It's like asking someone what is better, Chevy or Ford. It all depends on the model.

    I agree - too many options out there.

    Any pro opinions about the Toto Aquia? Looks like it may be difficult to install:

    I like the Toto Drake. It has a 3" flush valve so it flushes well. 12" rough-in. It's available in 1.28gpf, 1.6gpf, etc. You can even get it with a sanagloss coating that makes it so it doesn't have to be cleaned as often.

    There's also the Toto Entrada https://www.lowes.com/pd/TOTO-Entra...ngated-Chair-Height-2-Piece-Toilet/1000094397

    The two-piece toilets are relatively easy to install. I installed a Drake and that is what I'm using in my home. The Entrada is similar to the Drake.

    Not a bad price on that Toto. I have installed many high end Toto's through out the years and never cared for them. These were all 600 and up models with special flange connections that were a pain in the hynoose.

    The Am Standard i picked up has a 4" flush and full 2 3/8" trap and is 1.28 GPF

    I bought two Toto Ultramax IIs for under $500 each and so far they are awesome. Very easy to install as well.
