    Has anyone had an opportunity to compare Toto Drake and Ultramax II in actual household use? I would be very interested in reading which one does a better job or what are practical differences, particularly in flushing performance.

    The trapways are the same, flush valve the same, a little difference in height of the water stored in the tanks.
    For that reason, the two-piece holds a very slight edge. I prefer the one-piece Ultramax. They all flush very well.

    Hi Terry,
    Can the user adjust the float valve height in the UltraMax II, allowing more water to flow into the UltraMax II reservoir? I was thinking such an adjustment might even out the slight edge in "flush power" that the Toto Drake has over the UltraMax II.

    You mean the overflow height?
    Frankly I don't see the need. They work fine. Some of the earlier MS854114 Ultimate models I installed were rated at 325 grams, using the low water height and they worked just fine. I installed three in a church I go to, and they have been stellar.

    Almost done.

    Ready for some clear caulking at the floor. I like taking the pictures before I do that. The caulking I use goes on white and dries clear by the morning.

    Okay, why not a white one in the other bathroom. Sure.

    I installed three more of these, CST744SL in Seattle today. These have the new tower flush valves.

    TOTO CST743E-01
    Once more that I installed yesterday in Redmond.
    The Drake by TOTO is a workhorse.

    This CST744EG installed in Bellevue, same neighborhood as the homes I built in 1985 across the street.
