    Need a new Toilet - Toto seems like the right choice

    I installed three 2021 Toto Drake washlet+ 1.6gpf and couldn’t be happier. Also HIGHLY recommend considering buying either those or Ultra Max washlet+ with bidet seat — s500e or s550e. You will be rapidly spoiled and the extra $ are well worth it. But regardless, the flushing power and cleaning...

    Toilet safety frame that fits Toto Drake 2021 washlet+

    Sadly, the delivery/install guy from the home support supplies who delivered and setup other mobility aides was unsuccessful in trying to install two different such toilet support frames that would supposedly fit any standard elongated toilet. He told my wife that they wouldn’t align with the...

    Again, much appreciated.

    Toilet safety frame that fits Toto Drake 2021 washlet+

    Perfect. So helpful, Terry. As an aside, do you know if those lateral support brace tends to mar the porcelain?

    Toilet safety frame that fits Toto Drake 2021 washlet+

    Good potential solution, thanks. Though I’m hoping to get a stablizer that doesn’t have to be moved in and out of the way for different users with different needs. Appreciate the tip, all the same.

    Toilet safety frame that fits Toto Drake 2021 washlet+

    Thanks for that. Probably not an issue for many, but am hoping to install a cross-toilet one with screwed-in stablizer bare that fits between the seat plate and tank, with or without a washlet bidet installed using the same seat holes. An odd request, no doubt.

    Toilet safety frame that fits Toto Drake 2021 washlet+

    I’m looking to install a toilet frame with hand/stability rails for one of my Toto Drake 2021 washlet+ ready toilets fitted with SS124 seat, which has the deeper mounting plate to hide the as yet unused washlet bidet holes. Just wondering if anyone has any advice as to which make/model/style...

    Pressure draining Kitec hydronic tubing

    Hey, John. Here’s a picture of what the inside of the failing Kitec pipe looks like at the short section that was replaced directly above its connection to the outflow valve. Looks like it started to melt, though the boiler was never set above 170F and the tubing was supposedly rated to 180F...

    Pressure draining Kitec hydronic tubing

    Thanks, John, but out here in Vancouver, the winters are mostly fairly temperate and most of our newer and retrofitted homes are employing heat pump systems. But I’ll leave that for another future thread. For now, I just want to minimize any potential water damage risks from our existing Kitec...

    Pressure draining Kitec hydronic tubing

    Yes, that’s right. I’m going to go with a ductless mini-split heat pump system to replace the under-floor hydronic radiant heat system as our primary heating system, supplemented by existing gas fireplaces and electric baseboards. So I’m essentially wanting to completely drain the radiant heat...

    Pressure draining Kitec hydronic tubing

    I want to entirely decommission my Kitec in-floor hydronic heating system, which I intend to replace with a mini-split multi-zone air-to-air heat pump system. I am looking for advice on how to best clear any residual water from the loops/tubes and I am hoping to be able to do that with an air...

    Toto CST776CSG#01 or CST776CEG#01? Any meaningful difference in flush?

    And if you might ever want to install a Washlet+ bidet with concealed supply connection, the models are C776CEFGT40 (bowl), ST776SA (tank and cover) and SS124 (soft-close seat).

    Toto CST776CSG#01 or CST776CEG#01? Any meaningful difference in flush?

    I installed three of the 1.6GPF units a couple months ago and they are FANTASTIC. Excellent flushing power, very little brush work ever needed. The Cefiontect finish works very well, though ours also have equally terrific S500E bidets, with pre-mist to prevent sticking, which seems to do the...

    Preventing sediment damage from municipal water main maintenance

    A replaceable cartridge filter? On the main pipe inside the house, before the PRV, installed by a plumber? Good idea, but never knew that was an option. As for flushing outdoor faucets, I should have mentioned that I did that as a first step in that incident above I described, and it didn’t...

    Preventing sediment damage from municipal water main maintenance

    Just wondering what you experts would recommend to prevent damage from sediment after the municipal water supply has been shut off for maintenance and then restored. A few years ago the gas company accidentally nicked the water main on the road, thus causing a local shut-off on our street...

    Toto washlet s500e question

    Hadn’t thought of that, good point, as they’d stick to the tank or anywhere — though in my case, it’s all pretty hidden already. So far, love both the bidet units and new Drakes, Terry. Glad I went with those 1.6 gpf and not the Nexus units, all things considered (comparative price, weight...

    Toto washlet s500e question

    Just curious what these Velcro stick-on strips are for, included with the s500e Washlet (which is EXCELLENT, btw). Silly issue, but couldn’t see them referenced in Toto’s materials.

    Best way to double up wax rings

    Should have also added, is it best to place the sleeved ring directly against the toilet discharge and then on top of the second wax ring placed directly on the flange, or better to put both rings on the flange first and the toilet on top?

    Best way to double up wax rings

    When doubling up Oatey toilet wax rings, is it better to put the one with the sleeve into the flange first and the second unsleeved ring on top, or the reverse, with the bare wax ring placed on the flange first and the sleeved ring on top, closest to the bowl? Silly question, no doubt, but I’ve...

    Best Toilet for Large BMs

    Actually, with my 4 old circa 2000 3 GPF A.S. toilets, we’ve been exceptionally lucky, I guess, as we’ve never once had any of them clog. And though we’d be average “emitters” in the 99% club, I’m sure I’ve had more than a few extra-large stools over the decades. Anyway, I take your point — the...
