    How can I tell if a Toto Eco Drake is a Sanagloss model?

    I ordered a couple of Toto Eco Drake toilets with Sanagloss white finish. My plumber picked them up at the store's warehouse and installed them while I was offsite. Both are white, identical, except one has a "sanagloss" badge near the Toto logo and the other doesn't. How can I tell if the unbadged unit is Sanagloss or not?

    The badges can peel off.
    The boxes would have been marked as having Sanagloss, but those are now gone?

    The finish on the Sanagloss will look shiny compared to the standard finish.
    The Sanagloss is only inside the bowl.

    Thanks Terry. Yes, the boxes are gone. I'll look in both bowls tonight and see if I can tell any difference in the finish between the badged sanagloss and the unbadged one. Is the difference in finish likely to be noticeable?

    ONe supply house has a display and tells the plumber to use a pencil on the Sani-Gloss and regular finishes. The Sani Gloss either does not mark or it rubs off. (Of course, they may have an inferior finish on the non SaniGloss enamel to prove a point, however.)

    hj, there are plenty of brands with the "inferior" finish being sold. It's nice to have the option of a nicer finish.
