New TOTO 2021 Drake Toilet Update

toto logoIf you know anything about TOTO, you are probably well aware of their most popular toilet line, the Drake collection. Because it’s so popular, the line continues to see updates, and summer 2021 brings us yet another refresh of the series. This TOTO 2021 Drake toilet update is great news for cost-conscious consumers (more on that in a bit). The right toilet will make all the difference in your bathroom remodel, so an affordable toilet from the innovative engineers at TOTO is a great option.

When Will The New Product Be In Stock?

PlumbersStock will add the products in two phases. The key products should all be on the site and ready to sell by the end of the month (June 2021). You may not have put it together yet, but they are calling this 2021 Drake because it’s 2021.

What’s New in the TOTO 2021 Drake Toilet Update?

Short and to the point, TOTO is phasing out the legacy Drake toilets. They are replacing them with essentially the same toilet, but with a couple of upgrades. They now have CeFiONtect glazing, an ion-barrier technology that will keep your toilet cleaner with less maintenance. Additionally, they now feature TORNADO FLUSH, which is a powerful and efficient dual-nozzle water propulsion system.

Maybe the best part is that you get both these new TOTO 2021 Drake features at the same price point as the affordable legacy Drake models.

Which Key Drake Models Will Phase Out?

The entire list is quite long, but it’s basically all of the original Drake toilets. It’s probably best to spend our time on the MPN’s that we anticipate will be the biggest sellers. For the record, all of these models listed below have elongated bowls with two-piece configurations, in cotton white:

New TOTO WASHLETs, Toilets, Technology for 2021

The new year has brought some fun additions to the TOTO lineup, and we’re so excited to carry them here at PlumbersStock. We’re pleased to announce new TOTO WASHLETs, technology, and Aquia IV toilet designs. Times are changing, and it’s time for a few transitions. TOTO is replacing the old with better ideas and innovations. We’ll start with the sexiest products first, of course!

C2 WASHLETs

c2 washlet+ series in cotton whiteIn case you do not know, WASHLETs are a name-brand version of electronic bidet seats, but the two terms have become synonymous, much like Coke and soda. The technology that TOTO has developed has been leading the way for decades now. The C2 will be phasing out the classic C100 models.

The C2 has gentle aerated, warm water, and the dual-action spray comes with oscillating and pulsating features. You can adjust the water temperature and volume. The warm air drying feature allows three variable temperature settings. The Air deodorizer works automatically. You operate everything with the convenient arm control panel. The docking station makes it easy to install and clean. The heated seat allows for temperature control. EWATER+ auto-cleans the wand itself. The on-demand remote function cleans the wand with EWATER+ whenever you want. Last but not least, the water PREMISTs the bowl before each use, which keeps the toilet clean. There are three models:

The WASHLET+ option means it’s set up for a T40 connection (more on that later). Continue reading

SCALA 2 Is the Future: Grundfos Phasing Out MQ3 Series

scala2 perfect water pressure ensures improved performanceThe latest and greatest in residential pressure boosting pumps is now officially the SCALA2 series. Our customers are very familiar with Grundfos. Though SCALA2 hit the market a few years back, many customers remained dedicated to the older MQ3 series for its reliability.

So how does the SCALA2 vs. MQ3 series measure up? SCALA2 did have a few manufacturer flaws (more on that later), but they’ve now been fixed, and it is the superior pump. They have made it easier to meet the variable demands of your plumbing system while delivering the reliability and integrity you expect with Grundfos engineering.

When Will Grundfos Phase Out MQ3?

You could say that it’s already begun and probably will be complete in June. For customers who want to continue buying the MQ3 series, PlumbersStock will carry it as long as we can because we know plenty of people will still be looking for it. Here are the MQ3 models in question:

You no longer have to worry about horsepower when buying a residential booster pump. SCALA2 is built to meet your water flow demands. It ramps up and down when it needs to with its constant pressure system (more on that in a second). Here are the SCALA2 models in question:
