    The tank lid on my toto drake is not level with respect to the toilet. It tilts at an angle towards the bowl. If you look at the lid you can see it is casted at an angle which I assume is intentional. I installed my tank following the instructions and it is sitting properly on the three mount points. Is this normal to have an unlevel lid? If I tipped the tank bank I think I could get the lid level but this would be contrary to the instructions.

    thanks,
    Brendin

    I find that most lids angle toward the bowl, not toward the wall.
    Maybe that's to angle the tissues so that they are easier to grab.

    Toto Drake Tank Top Slope

    The toto drake tank top is sloped on purpose. It's the design. I've had the toilet 4 years...........no problems ever. Of course, I no longer can put anything decorative on top of it due to the slope.

    Install this product as you are supposed to.
