Was going to post this but got too busy with crazy kids running around. Homeclick is a great seller and I haven't had any problems with my last 2 orders of toilets. I just placed an order for 6 Elongated Drakes for the new house on Thursday.

If you're willing to spend a little more buy this toilet with the Sanagloss options - makes cleaning less frequent and easier http://www.homeclick.com/toto-cst...00229.aspx

Also, there's 2 types of Soft Close seats - I prefer the more expensive SS204 over the SS114 but you would have to "try" them or see them to decide for yourself.

The Drake is a much better toilet than any of the nicer Kohlers at HD which actually end up costing more.

what's the difference between a one piece and two piece toilet? is the price difference worth getting this over a one piece toilet?

The main different probably the style. Really depend on the style you like.

In term of performance, if they are similar model, performance should be about the same. Without knowing which module, hard to compare.

For two piece, the advantage are
- normally cheaper for the same performance
- if you are going to replace the toilet solo, need to think about the weight and size of the toilet. One piece toilet could be at much as 90 to 100 pounds. While for two piece, the bowl may be 50-70 and tank may be 20-30 pounds. Much easier for DIY to install and carry. One piece also bigger and more awkward to carry especially through doorways.
I think most solo DIY would prefer 2 piece because of size/weight.

For one piece
- one-piece has little cleaner line without the break between tank and bowl. The one piece can be a little easier to clean, since there isn't that area between bowl and tank just doesn't exist on a one-piece.
- A two piece has the potential to develop a leak between the tank and bowl, although this is very very rare.

You know - I bought one of those $88 dollar Glacier Bay toilets from Home Depot for our master bathroom and I really don't have a problem with it. It flushes great, seems solid (like my bm) and has good comfort for my cheeks (I did buy an different seat cover since the flimsly stock plastic cover does not cut it).

I read a lot of negative reviews about the Home Depot brand, mostly saying that it does not do a good job with the flush. People complained about their **** sticking to the side of the bowl. I've never ever had this problem. Maybe they don't center themselves on the toilet or they need to lay off the chili every night for dinner. Note that last night my dinner consisted of multiple servings of jalapeno nachos and about 14 Milwaukie's Best beers. My daily morning ritual was pushed to the limit this morning but still the $88 Glacier Bay toilet held up to the task as I hummed "Ring of Fire".


I'm going to stop short of saying "a toilet is a toilet is a toilet" but so far I'm pleased.

Nice price for a Toto. I don't know about this model, but I have an Aquia II dual flush and the design/quality is impressive - much better than most cheap-o toilets.

In my house the builder used the cheapest toilets he could find - always clogging and used too much water.

A few years back I bought an expensive toilet that had some good recommendations on the web and had it installed - was no better than the one it replaced.

About a couple of years ago somebody posted a similar deal on the Toto Drake two-piece - I bought it and installed it myself (wasn't too hard). Wow! Now that's a great toilet! Never clogs, very water efficient, quick flushes (seems turbo charged!). I liked it so much that I bought two more to replace the other toilets in the house.

I couldn't recommend these units any more highly - if you need a toilet (or are just tired of having a crappy sh!tter) then do yourself a favor and install a Toto Drake - you'll be happy for years to come.

One more recommendation...

Make sure you open the box and inspect the toilet when you receive delivery.

When I received my second two units they arrived on a pallet together in what appeared to be good condition (none of the boxes showed any signs of damage). I didn't get around to installing them until several weeks later - when I unpacked the units I found the tank on one of the units broken. Luckily the folks at Homeclick took care of me and sent me another unit without additional charge (but I did have to email them some photos to convince them).

"Fast Flush - wide 3” flush valve is 125% larger then conventional 2” flush valves"

Their English and their Math is bad. The increase in size from 2" to 3" is only 50% - way off on that one! And it's *than* not then in this application.

Pi times radius squared brainiac! They are not talking about the diameter. They are expressing the AREA!

And yes, I had some old "A toilet is a toilet" toilets in my home. used lots of water, always clogged, etc..... I have yet to have ANY problem with the TOTO DRAKE with the GMAX flush system I bought from homeclick. Simply awesome!

Remember they are talking about Area of the circle.

As you may know, the formulas for AREA of circle is
A = Pi * r * r where Pi=3.14 and r is the radius of the circle.

You will notice the 3" flush value is 125% larger than 2" flush valves because
3.14 * 1 * 1 compare to 3.14 * 1.5 * 1.5 is about 1 to 2.25. Which is 125% larger.
