The top toilets on the market share plenty of common ground on a number of key components and fixtures. First, they offer a powerful flush, secondly they are affordable for the masses, and thirdly, they are water efficient. You find a product that hits all three of these goals, and it’s likely you’ve found a excellent toilet. After working as a plumbing professional for several years, we’ve come across several stand out products that fit the bill. One of those is the TOTO Eco Drake, which has a number of things within its spec list that make me believe it is worth a look at. Let’s outline the main features below.
The first thing that struck me is how efficient the flush mechanism is. Well, it shouldn’t be that much of a surprise with eco in the name, but at the same time, water conservation should play a big role in any modern bathroom. Technology within the tanks and bowl has evolved to the point where it’s no longer necessary to utilize a heavier flush. And as such, the E-Max, 1.28 gpf used in this one is certainly worth considering. Many thousands of gallons could be saved over the long term.
Choosing between a standard and comfort height bowl can be a difficult choice. Ultimately, they both have their advantages, but we can see why comfort height bowls are growing in popularity. The added inches can make a ginormous difference to people who have trouble bending down as that can cause strain on their joints. The TOTO Drake as it happens, is comfort height, and we personally believe it makes it a more flexible choice for users.
Moving onto affordability, there is no doubt in our mind that this is a excellent pick for buyers working with a small budget. Sometimes you get toilets that cost over $500, which may be difficult for many. However, this model can usually be found at around the $300 mark, making it a great inexpensive option for your bathroom.
