|In response to Re: Toto Drake - tank doesn't fully empty?|
: Based on this site, I installed a Toto Drake to replace an American Standard w/ Sloan Flushmate that we'd had for 6 months. (With the American Standard, if paper was dropped toward the front of the elongated bowl, it would hang up and not be flushed, even on repeat flushings - poor bowl design.)
: The Toto Drake is very quiet and flushes fine, but I have one concern - only about half the water from the tank goes into the bowl - the flapper closes so quickly that a LOT of water remains in the tank (unless you hold the handle down longer than normal). Is this normal?
1.6 gallons are released into the bowl during a flush.
The reason that more water is held in the tank, is to elevate it,
A nice side benefit of the new toilets, is less condensation on the tank. The water stays closer to room temperature.
