1.6 gps vs Sanagloss - need help
This is my first post although I've been lurking for some time reading through the entire AS Cadet 3 forum and various posts in this one. I was seriously considering getting a Cadet 3 to replace our 3 "crappy" 9 year old 1.6 GPF builder grade toilets after a friend had one installed in his townhouse a month ago and reported good results. However, after reading about the numerous "hit or miss" quality control issues and the overwhelmingly positive reviews of the Drake, I've decided to spend a little more and get the Drakes.
Here's my quandary - my preference is to get the 1.6 GPF Drakes since they've been out longer than the relatively newly designed toilets that use 1.28 GPF and I get the sense that in "general" the 1.6s may give better bowl wash (although I realize that they are still low-flow). I also really like the idea of the Sanagloss and would like to get this feature since it also seems to help with bowl wash. The problem - I need a bone colored unit for my powder room and it seems that the 1.6 Sanagloss is ONLY available in white! That will be fine for my two white toilets upstairs but I really want Sanagloss for my powder room toilet since it gets the most traffic (so to speak). I will probably get the ADA height for the powder room toilet as well and standard height for the two upstairs toilets.
So, given that my primary motivation in replacing the toilets is performance, can anybody help me figure out if it is more important to get the 1.6 GPF Drake in bone but not available with Sanagloss (please correct me if I'm wrong about this) or if it's better to get 1.28 in bone that DOES come with Sanagloss? I guess another way to ask this is:
1. Are you finding that the Sanagloss really does make a positive difference?
2. Do you think (from personal experience or otherwise) that the 1.6 GPF Drakes perform better than the 1.28 GPF Drakes?
3. Does anybody know if the 1.6 Drakes with Sanagloss ARE available in bone but I've somehow missed it?
Thanks to all for your valuable input and thanks to Terry for this great site!
