    Default will be buying either Vespin II or Drake II double cyclone- question about toto websi

    I will be being a Vespin II double cyclone or Drake II double cyclone , a 2 piece toilet

    I noticed on the Toto website

    here specifically
    http://www.totousa.com/Default.aspx?...t=Title&page=1


    that if you click on the Drake II you will see a Echoscore card on the 2 piece toilet, but none on the other 1 piece..

    anyone notice this? Will the


    Here is A drake II With Echoscore card

    vs this
    http://www.totousa.com/ProductDetail...d-b832f27dd5fe



    Bottom Line: I think toto messed up the description on these toilets same for the Vespin II... SHould say ONE PIECE instead of 2 piece as the Price is indicative of a one piece toilet.

    a one piece vs 2 piece-- both flush the same power, right?

    Typically, the higher tank will win out in the testing. But anything 500 grams is really good.
    It's like how hard do you slam your car doors to make them shut?

    And I did notice some pricing mistakes on the web site.
    Increasing in price would be
    Drake II
    Vespin II
    Ultramax II, which includes a seat in the box.
    Carlyle II, which includes a seat in the box.

    A two-piece often has a slight advantage over a one-piece toilet of similar design because on a two-piece, the tank's water level is a bit higher (think water tower). Not a lot, but some. Both the Vespin and Drake are two-piece toilets.
