    Thanks again for the reply wjcandee!

    Really appreciate you physically checking on that under-rim glazing. I'm satisfied it's the norm.

    Heck, I've not yet even installed my Drake but am so...

    Another update to say the 2 TOTO Drake's I ordered through Home Depot arrived yesterday morning. I'm not sure if they were drop-shipped from TOTO or shipped directly from an HD warehouse (more...

    Upon continued research I have found an answer to my question based upon at least one manufacturer (Danze). The following links are to the product and specifications pages. It is listed as a...

    Thanks again for the reply!

    A perfect example would be these attached images of Grohe Arden faucets in differing finishes. Both are labeled as mini-widespread. I couldn't help but believe the 2nd...
  5. Much appreciate the clarification. Not sure where...

    Much appreciate the clarification. Not sure where I believed I read a "mini" was compatible with both 4" and 8" spreads. Anyhow you spurred me to research again and every article describes...

    Thanks for the reply jadnashua!

    Yeah, I've got that. I'm just really curious as to what the actual physical design difference is between the mini-widespread and widespread faucets themselves...
  7. What is the difference design-wise between widespread and mini-widespread faucets?

    Been researching this for the better part of the day and can't determine. I understand 4"-centerset is for 4" only, 4"-mini-widespread applies to both 4" and 8" while 8"-widespread is supposed to be...
  8. Hey wjcandee, thanks again for another thorough...

    Hey wjcandee, thanks again for another thorough response (to the extent that you can respond to this model)!

    Since you are familiar with my story -- I was actually also toying with the idea of...
  9. Any update on the Delta Prelude's? Performance, fit-n-finish, etc?

    This forum in just the last week has provided me enough info that my friends are beginning to think my profession is now plumbing. LOL While I await my 2 Drake's to come in I'll do some forum work...
  10. Not sure that is correct hj. Anodes are...

    Not sure that is correct hj. Anodes are considered "sacrificial" due to the fact the alloy they're made of is more electrically conductive therefore attracting the always present and corrosive...
  11. Thanks for the replies! My one concern (if I...

    Thanks for the replies!

    My one concern (if I were to replace the anode) seems to be echoed by you gentlemen -- I was dreading the thought of corroded/encrusted threads making removal a PITA. Even...
  12. Is it worth changing the water heater anode on older unit?

    I'm confident the correct solution for prevention would be to replace the water heater as a whole but have to ask...

    My current gas fired Kenmore PowerMiser 8 has a warranty expiration date of...
  13. Quick update. As I just posted in the other...

    Quick update. As I just posted in the other TOTO/Home Depot thread I found the CST743S01 offered at my local HD for $194. This price is truly but a "tad" more after adding the sales tax and $5 higher...

    I was anticipating replies to the OP's question as just prior to ordering online a Drake I decided to check HD for seats, low-n-behold I noted they sold TOTO toilets. My first thought was also the...

    Again, very appreciative of the replies!

    I think I'll bite the bullet and get two of the Drake's for for $190 each, one for her and one for me. There are simply too many positives to argue a...
  16. Wow! Local plumbing supply costs for the...

    Wow! Local plumbing supply costs for the CST734S-01 range from industry acceptable pricing ($260) to "We are an authorized Toto dealer and don't compete with " ($620 !!!!). While I can be tempted to...

    Much appreciate the reply wjcandee.

    I did forget to mention that a round bowl is mandatory due to bathroom dimensions. This along with the fact that it's the more appropriate height the Drake you...
  18. Request suggestions for senior-on-budget toilet replacement

    As a homeowner/DIY'er I'm trying to help out an elderly neighbor with pro bono replacement of her 45yo toilet, for which I have two questions.

    1. She is rather petite at about 5' tall. I assume...
