Looking inside the Dalton tank.
I really like my Drake (not one plug after 4 yrs use), except for the "streaking," which may be generic to all new 1.6 flushers. Anybody know???
I'm tired of getting my exercise by constantly having to "plunge" my toilet. I know that the drake is highly recommended, but at this point finances are really an issue. Is there another toto toilet that could be recommended that would be at a lower cost than the drake? Do all toto's have the 3 inch opening for the flapper and the larger trap?
Thanks for you help.

I have a TOTO Dalton with the "siphon jet gravity flushing system". The fill valve appears to be a standard design with an arm and float shutoff (TSU 15A?). The inlet water flow is severely restricted and the tank takes a long time to fill. The water supply is pumped from a fresh water lake. Is there a filter somewhere in the valve. If so how do I access it? Failing repair where can I obtain a factory replacement valve?
If you have the old style fill valve with the ball on a rod, then you can take the fill valve apart and clean.
There is a small locking pin that drops in from the top, remove that and I think you can spin off the top part of the valve.
I know that Terry and many others like the Dalton as a lower-cost alternative to the Drake, but go to "Toto Dalton Toilet" thread to read a couple of opposing views, related to "piss-poor" bowl wash in the Dalton.
Perhaps if SaniGloss was available on the Dalton - I don't recall that it was - it would make a world of difference for this deficiency.
