    Default Toto Drake install guestions

    I'm about to purchase a Toto Drake from a local plumbing supplier that just started carrying them, so he doesn't know too much about them. I have a couple guestions.

    1. I installed a flange extender that brought the flange height up to about level with my recently installed lamanite flooring. So what thickness wax ring would you recommend? Will a normal size thickness work, or do I need to use an extra thick ring?

    2. For the water supply line, what size is the end going into the ballcock (I think thats what it's called) on the bottom of the tank? I think most toilets I had before were 7/8". Is the Toto 7/8" also?

    Thanks.

    If the flange is flush with the floor, either use two wax rings, or a thicker one.

    Toto uses American made fill valves and flappers.
    A standard 7/8" on the fill valve side of the supply will work fine.
