Fall TOTO Release: Wall-Hung Toilet Replacement, CT418FG vs. CT426CFG, CT428CFG

We are excited to announce the new fall TOTO release which includes an abundance of amazing bathroom design solutions. Maybe the most important change to mention right off the bat is that the TOTO has replaced the CT418F, CT418FG with the CT426CFG and CT428CFG. We’ll get into the differences between the models and all the different options later in this post. The other thing worth noting is that there are several new faucet collections (GB, GC, GE, GF, and GM). No matter what you like from this fall release, remember that PlumbersStock is going to offer you some of the best prices you’ll find anywhere online, so buy TOTO here.

Replacing the CT418F and CT418FG

new TOTO AP wall-hung toilet model

With these older models, the difference between them was that the CT418F did not come with CEFIONTECT technology, and the CT418FG did include it. This is a finishing glaze that makes your toilet beautiful and easier to keep clean. With this new release, all the toilets include CEFIONTECT technology, so technically there is no direct replacement for the CT418F. The two new models offer more efficiency*, two distinct designs (CT426CFG and CT428CFG), and a variety of options.

*Dual Flush now offers 1.28 gpf or 0.9 gpf, whereas with older models it was 1.6 gpf or 0.9 gpf

There are two unique models in the collection, and three finishes for each model. The Paterson kitchen sink faucet is available in:

Introducing the New GROHE Rapido SmartBox

GROHE is one of the most popular manufacturers among PlumbersStock customers. The new and innovative GROHE Rapido SmartBox rough-in valve (GROHE 35601000) is a great example as to why they are so popular. Installing a new shower or shower parts can be such a pain, but with a universal valve like the SmartBox, the process is simplified. One of the best selling points of this valve is that you can run up to 3 showers off it. The Rapido SmartBox is slim in size, with only a 3″ minimum installation depth. The bottom two inlets make connecting to pipe an easy process. There are other features to discuss, more on that later.

Rapido SmartBox Compatibility

The Rapido SmartBox valve is universal, which means it is compatible with all the various SmartControl trim options from the Grohtherm collection. The square wall plates come in chrome, brushed nickel, and moon white. Take note that the round only comes in chrome and moon white.

TOTO GS Bathroom Sink Faucets

3-Hole Lavatory Faucet

There is only one model in the TOTO GS series that fits this description, and it’s the TLG03201U widespread lavatory faucet. You can get it in three different finishes. This is meant for deck-mounted installations and the handles can be installed with an 8″ to 11″ spread.

1-Hole Lavatory Faucets

There are three models in the collection that fit this description. If you have a regular drop-in or undermount sink, then you should go with the TLG03301U lavatory faucet. Now if you have a vessel sink, the other two faucets are going to be the right solution for you. There is the TLG03303U semi-vessel faucet and also the TLG03305U vessel faucet. These are deck-mount faucets and on all three models, the lever is on top of the fixture which is part of what makes it easy to use (it’s called Comfort Glide technology). The faucets are ADA compliant, and the fact that it’s a one-hole installation makes things simpler. The ceramic cartridge features of Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC), which is extremely durable.
