    Gary,

    I think you missed my last message. I fit a Drake in to the 9" rough-in spot. It was 9" plus a smidge. I complained that installing a Drake in a 12 inch rough leaves a mile of space...

    When I run the hot water I swear I can smell something that's kind of like the smell/taste you get when you're raking leaves. I'm pretty sure this is just hot water, not cold. A search here turned...

    Ah, I see. That explains what's happening on my shower when I use the little button valve on the showerhead to shut it off while soaping up. When I turn it back on it's hot as heck.

    Terry, you ship outside NW?

    Do you ship Toto's outside the NW area where you're located? Your shopping cart implies that the only delivery options are kind of local to you. I've been ordering porcelain from wherever online,...

    American Standard bashing unfair?

    In reading some of Ian's Cadet 3 posts someone referred to American Standard as something like "Central American Standard" because it's made in Mexico.

    Ian,

    Sorry, I'm not getting a Cadet 3. The Drake went in just fine. 10-3/4" Drake install!! The tank screwed down on the bowl nice and snug and actually comes within a hair of touching the...

    Yep, it does refer to the bottom of the bowl, but it seems that these Cadet 3 toilets have 3 different tanks with the tank gasket and bolts at 3 different spots which allows you to set the the entire...

    Haha, leave them both filled, put yellow food coloring in the tank, blue in the bowl, and let it sit.

    For you Cadet 3 lovers... is it possible to put the 10" rough-in tank (4019.016) onto the round front bowl (3011.016) for a really tight space toilet or does that not work? They aren't sold together...
