01 TOTO CST744SL Toilet Overview
This section of our TOTO Drake Toilet review shall focus on the technicalities of what makes the toilet effective, even though it looks like any other average toilet. We will simplify the technicalities as much as possible for your convenience.
To begin with, the TOTO Drake Elongated Toilet’s seat is 18.5 inches long and up to 14 inches wide. So, you have plenty of room to use the toilet comfortably. The seat is also placed 17.5 inches above the ground. This will make sure that your legs will have no problem to settle themselves into a comfortable position.
Moreover, the toilet’s 3-inch G-Max flush valve also makes it flush out 1.6 gallons of water very quickly. At that speed and amount of water that would be washed down into the toilet, impurities are less likely to stick to its Vitreous China ceramic (a top-notch, corrosion-resistant ceramic) build.
Let us now take a deeper look into this toilet’s features in our feature analysis section of the TOTO Drake Toilet review. This will help you understand what makes this toilet so special.
