Have you heard the news? TOTO is phasing out older Drakes with updated models. TOTO Drake toilets are very popular, so we have seen a lot of curiosity about this transition. The most frequently asked question we’re getting is what is the difference between the old Drakes and the new TOTO Drake toilets release? We’ll get into the nitty-gritty details in a moment, but the highlights are that the new Drakes all have Dynamax tornado flushing and sleek rimless bowl design. We’re going to focus on some of the most popular examples from the Drake series (we’ll be shipping these August 1st):
- Dual Flush (1.6/0.8 gpf) Drake CST746CSMG#01 – replaces the CST744S#01
- Universal Height, Dual Flush (1.6/0.8 gpf) Drake CST746CSMFG#01 – replaces the CST744SL#01
- Dual Flush (1.28/0.8 gpf), Drake CST746CEMG#01 – replaces the CST744E#01
- Universal Height, Dual Flush (1.28/0.8 gpf), Drake CST746CEMFG#01 – replaces the CST744EL#01
New TOTO Drake Features
Well, let’s get to it! What are the features of these particular four models? The new stunning features are in bold:
- DYNAMAX Tornado Flush utilizes 360º cleaning power to reach every part of the bowl. This is a new feature. Older Drake models had G-Max flushing systems, which were innovative at the time, but now it’s all been replaced by this superior Dynamax.
- Dual flush is not new and it’s available with only specific models, so keep that in mind. Also, not all dual flush options are equal. Some models have 1.6 gpf, while others offer the super efficient 1.28 gpf as a maximum.
- CeFiONtect ceramic glaze prevents debris and mold from sticking to ceramic surfaces. For example, this is is not available on all models, for example, any ebony model is without.
- Design of the bowl reduces water flow resistance resulting in a quieter flushing sound, which is much appreciated by sleeping partners and parents of sleeping babies.
- Elongated front bowl, less seat
- Chrome plated trip lever
- 12″ Rough-in is the standard configuration, and likely to match your installation. If you don’t know how to measure the rough-in, we’ve got you covered.
- Rimless bowl design is stylish and easy to clean.
- The semi-concealed trapway is a new addition to Drake toilets. It’s a much cleaner look now, and you will love the difference it makes in your bathroom design.
Remember, seats are not included with your purchase, but we highly recommend one with Slow Close technology.
