Toto Drake II Toilet Review – with Elongated Bowl & Sanagloss
his review covers the Toto Drake II, a user-friendly 2-piece toilet that’s designed for ease of use. It has a left-hand trip lever and an elongated seat shape to satisfy all types of users.
Construction and Design
The high-profile tank on the Toto Drake II makes for a space-saving structure, especially compared to other toilets with similar elongated bowls. When an appropriate seat is installed, this toilet is roughly the same height as a chair, which is comfortable for people of all shapes and sizes.
You can order this toilet with a lockable lid option to prevent meddling with the flush function. Also, there are 5 different color options for the Toto Drake II: Ebony, Sedona Beige, Colonial White, Bone, and Cotton. Choose the perfect color to coordinate with your bathroom decor.
Cleaning and Maintenance
With the Toto CST454CEFG Drake II, you’ll find yourself dealing with clogs far less than with other toilets. It has a 3-inch flush valve, which is notably larger than the usual 2-inch flush valve on other toilets. It enables a faster, stronger flush that, in combination with the large 2-1/8-inch completely glazed trapway, makes clogs virtually nonexistent. Fewer clogs mean less time spent plunging and cleaning.
The 1.28 GPF of the Toto Drake II toilet gets an extra bit of power with the Double Cyclone flushing system. It uses an enlarged water outlet and a robust siphon action for a strengthened flush. The 100% glazed trapway flushes out waste completely, every time. The flushing system is made even more effective with the angled nozzles, through which water enters the elongated bowl.
The Toto Drake II toilet uses only 1.28 GPF (4.8 LPF), but it does clean out 100% of waste with just a single flush. Less water is used when you don’t have to worry about flushing multiple times to completely clear out the bowl.
The Toto CST454CEFG Drake II toilet includes everything you need for installation, (excluding the seat), which you don’t often see when shopping for toilets. It uses a 12-inch rough-in, measuring from the wall to the middle of the waste pipe. Anyone with some experience in DIY will be able to install the Toto Drake 2 with ease, and Toto provides a complete installation manual.
