    What is the story with the Promenade's flush lever? I have seen some pics that show it on the front, but most show it on the side of the tank. Is the front flusher the old model? Can I get the newer Promenade with a front lever? My wife is concerned about using the lever on the side. Can anyone comment on this? Does it flush by pulling up and toward you?

    Personally, I'd rather have the flush lever on the side. It's still obvious, but it's out of the way. It flushes by pushing down on the lever.

    You're worrying over nothing. Both my Dartmouth and Drake have a side mounted flush handle and it took no time at all to become accustomed to it. The Dartmount requires a forward pull whereas the Drake is a downward push. It really should not be a concern. As jadnashua pointed out, it's out of the way.

    Well to be fair, it's my wife who is worrying , but thanks for clearing it up. I just found a showroom in town that has a bunch of toilets so I think we are going to go check them out.
    So I take it the front flush handle is the old model then?
    Just out of curiosity, would any of you go with the Caroma over the Promenade? It's a bit cheaper, but it sounds like it requires some "behavior modification"...
    Oh and Terry, thanks for merging this, I had read the other thread, but I guess it does make sense to put my question here.

    I'm having fewer problems with the Toto then with the Caroma.
    The bowl will stay cleaner then on the Caroma,
    Whereas the Toto can be gotten in the Sanagloss, which is very nice, the Caroma glaze has always been pretty soft.

    There are those with medical conditions that require a large trapway Caroma.
    Lucky for me, I'm in the 99 percentile that gets by real well with the Toto.

    I had one customer that very badly wanted the Caroma.
    We brought it out, but the bowl was so long, that the door hit.
    We installed it upstairs for him, in a bigger bathroom, and installed a round Toto Drake in his powder bath.
    From that point onwards, he stared buying more Toto toilets.
    They flush is more subltle on the Drake, and the bowl stays a bit cleaner.

    Default Promedade toilet tank

    I thought it was best to have an insulated tank.
    I inquired about this model at a plumbing store and the tank is not insulated.
    Is that a problem in humid weather?

    Low flow toilets use water in a different way than the older full flow models. Only about 1/2 of the tank is used per flush. This means the incoming cold water is tempered by the remaining water and thus there is little or no problem with condensation.

    Default Promenade Bowl used with Drake Tank??

    I've got a tank height problem. We want a round bowl with universal (high) height, and have G-Max flush. The Promenade ALMOST fits the bill except the overall tank height. I know Toto sells each tank and bowl individually. I'm hoping possibly someone would know if the basic tank & bowl alignments for some of their G-Max toilets are the same, BUT I CAN'T FIND OUT. Does anyone know if there is another tank (like maybe the G-Max Drake tank) that will fit on the Promenade bowl? Then I can order each item separately.
    Thanks.

    For folks looking at this toilet, it used to be CST724 as the bowl/tank combination, but no longer. Toto has now redone the model numbers on the "new" versions.

    Terry has the correct bowl numbers above, but here are the TOILET numbers if you want to order the whole toilet (i.e the bowl and tank). Forget about CST724; it will show as "discontinued". The "new" 2-piece toilet numbers are:

    CST423EF 1.28gpf tank, round universal height bowl
    CST423EFG 1.28 gpf tank, round universal height bowl with Sanagloss
    CST424EF 1.28gpf tank, elongated universal height bowl
    CST424EFG 1.28gpf tank, elongated universal height bowl with Sanagloss

    For the 1.6gpf tank, just change the "E" in my numbers above to an "S".
