Drake II 1G Ultra High-Efficiency Toilet

Gold Award
2013
TOTO introduces the Drake II 1G – the Industry’s first one gallon per flush (gpf) Ultra High-efficiency Toilet (UHET) that offers the company’s state-of-the art Double Cyclone flushing system. The new gravity-fed, two-piece Drake II 1G Double Cyclone marries flawless performance and exceptional bowl cleansing action to ultra high-efficiency water-savings, creating a clean, green flushing system that saves money, water, and time. Like a cyclone in nature, the Double Cyclone flushing system harnesses the power of water and gravity to create a powerful 1.0 gpf flush engine that maximizes cleaning action as it spins away waste. Double Cyclone features two nozzles (instead of rim holes) that use water more efficiently for better rim and bowl cleansing, resulting in less trapped matter and bacteria, which results in less time needed to clean the toilet. In addition, a proprietary dual-nozzle water propulsion system that enables more water to be directed to the siphon for a powerful flush that clears the bowl first time, every time. The Drake II 1G’s bowl and concave rim are coated with SanaGloss, TOTO’s nano-technology glaze that seals its porcelain with an ionized barrier, creating a super-slippery, non-porous surface that repels the matter and bacteria. In short, when protected by SanaGloss, the water that cleanses the Drake II 1G’s bowl and rim as the toilet flushes is all that is needed to remove stains, residue, scaling, and lime buildup. Invisible organisms, including bacteria and molds, also are eliminated. Consumers will need fewer harsh detergents, which are expensive and harmful to the environment. The Universal Height Drake II 1G Double Cyclone Ultra High-Efficiency Toilet is 17” from base to seat, TOTO’s ergonomic, comfortable height design that facilitates rising from a sitting to standing position and makes this aesthetically-pleasing two-piece toilet ADA-compliant.

Pricing

The estimated MSRP for the Drake II 1G is $600.00
