    I am still working on my beach cabin remodel, and naturally have not done the bathroom yet.

    I've been out of the toilet-talk loop and wonder if anything has improved with the dual flush toilets.
    Is there a dual flush toilet out there that is as good as the Drake 2, with the double cyclone, etc?

    Thanks for your input!

    I like the Drake II and the Vespin II.
    The Vespin is skirted like the Aquia but with Sanagloss. It's also a WaterSense bowl using 1.28 gallons.
    There's nothing wrong with the Aquia though.

    Thanks for your reply.
    I see the Aquia ll and Aquia lll on Toto's web page, but I don't see that they come in Sanagloss.
    Do you know the difference between the ll & lll?

    I know the Drake ll with Sanagloss is suppose to be a fantastic toilet, but I like the dual flush feature
    providing that the dual flush works properly and doesn't need fussing with constantly. I have a limited
    well at my cabin, so every flush is important. Flushing twice isn't an option. Should I even
    think about these dual flush models, or just stick with the Drake ll?

    The dual flush is working fine. I've sold about 300 of them.

    The CST416M is 15-1/8" high
    The CST464MF and the CST412MF are 16-1/8" high

    hey guys I hope I can get some help from you, this thread has been pretty helpful for me. I'm trying to get more ecofriendly with my home and I want to purchase a dual flush toilet and I have no clue what brands are more trusted than others. I've been looking around for reviews and what not but haven't found a whole lot that's been helpful. I found this site last night and I'm considering an american standard brand and not sure what model I want but anyways if you guys could give me some advice or suggestions on a better brand that would be great. Thanks.

    Check out http://www.terrylove.com/crtoilet.htm
    There is a description of different types of toilets as well as ratings and prices. Most of the toilets listed have links to forum discussions about those toilets.

    I'm very happy with my Caroma Caravelle and my Toto Aquia.

    Toto Aquia. The founder of our site indicates that he has sold hundreds of them, with almost no returns, meaning that they are one of his most-liked toilets. When you buy Toto, you get great quality and reliability in the product, not something that can always be said about American Standard these days.
