    Just installed Total Drake - Awesome!

    Toto toilets are the best period. Absolutely love my elongated Drake. Don't understand why the other companies can't just copy the design. 60% of the toilets at Lowes and Home Depot are weak and considered junk. 30% are mediocre.

    It's not rocket science, yet AS and Kohler still produce weak perfoming toilets and charge you a premium. I refuse to pay more for a inferior product.

    Toto toilets are taking over America and soon Europe. Reminds me of a company named Toyota that took over the U.S number 1 sales slot.

    I bought a Toto Drake about 4 years ago when one of my toilets in my condo took a crap. It is without a doubt the best toilet I have ever used. I've sold my condo and am moving into a new townhouse, but unfortunately the builder doesn't use Toto. I want to tear my Toto out of the condo and take it with me to the new townhouse, but I don't think the guy who bought my condo would appreciate it too much.

    Oh well, I'll just have to go buy another one.

    I have been installing the Toto Drake for my childrens school centers.

    Toilets we have been removing are the Baby Devoro. They plugged too easily.

    We tried the Niagara Flapperless, it would be called Pegasus now.
    Handle prolems.

    We tried a couple of the Cadet 3's

    We now install the Toto Drake whenever we need a replacement.
    Twelve in the last year for our schools.

    I had 3 ADA drakes installed for my dad. These things are great and what I will order when Iv had enough of my old kohler's.

    Highly recommended!

    Thanks Terry. First toilet installed yesterday w/out a hitch. Flange was a bit above floor level so I went with just the one wax ring and the fit seemed very good. The family loves the Toto !

    Terry and Jamie,

    My wife and I want to thank you for your prompt, courteous, and efficient installation of our new Toto Drake Toliets. I doubt that my wife will ever again let me embark on a do-it yourself project! Our initial impressions of the new Drakes are very favorable. My wife is especially impressed with the soft closing lids!

    Also, thank you for your website which was a big help in choosing the Drakes.

    Sincerely,

    Types of Drake

    Hello,

    This sight is very informative. I am interested in purchasing a Drake. However, on the TOTO website, there are several types: Bolt down lid, insulated tank and both combinations. Are the bolt down lid and insulated tank suggested?

    Also, is the Drake very quiet, as we have a small place and the bathroom is next to the kitchen and bedroom.

    Finally, is the Drake II better than the original Drake,

    Thanks in advance for your assistance.

    The bolts down lid would be for something like a gas station to prevent tampering. (I've never sold one) ST743SB

    The ST743SD insulated tank is for areas of high humidity and very cold water.
    I sell a few of these in Alaska.

    Normally I sell either the ST743S or the ST743E tanks.

    The (Gwyneth) Drake II has the double cyclone and Sanagloss with the taller bowl.
    It's a nice setup for someone that wants a taller bowl.

    thanks

    Thank you very much. It appears that the bolt and insulation are not necessary in my area (midwest). I will most likely go with the CST743S or CST744SG. I assume that they are both quiet.

    Thanks again.

    Best

    I bought a Toto from you a few years back – works great. 2004

    Recently my wife put a Clorox tablet cleaner in the tank and over the period of a week or so disfigured the flapper so much it wouldn’t stop the water. I replaced the flapper and it’s fine, but have you ever heard of that sort of product doing so much damage to a flapper? It felt like sticky, soft candy.

    Clorox and Rubber don't mix well.
    Chlorine will void the warranty for all manufacturers.
    Lowes carries the replacement flappers.
    2004, that was a while ago.

    How a Toto toilet flushes

    I just read some of the posts regarding the Toto Drake and wanted to add that having had 2 for the last 8 months I agree with the quiet flush, effective flush, good looks, etc. I would reinforce the comment I saw only once (I'M surprised) regarding the poor bowl cleaning effectiveness of the flush. I now have to clean the bowl far more often than with the prior toilets. I just figured that this comes with the 1.6 gallon flush.
    My question is - Is the Cyclone flush more effective at cleaning the bowl??
    Also, how do I post this kind of a message?
