    Default Eco Drake vs Drake 2

    I'm trying to decide between the Eco Drake and the Drake 2.

    It seems they are both excellent and relatively easy to install, both use 1.28 gpf, and the only real difference is e-max vs double cyclone flush.

    Anyone biased towards one over the other? Is the double cyclone really worth 80 extra dollars?

    Thanks!

    The EcoDrake comes in three models.
    Regular bowl
    Elongated bowl
    Elongated ADA height bowl
    Under the rim; rinse holes vertically rinse the bowl.

    The Drake II comes in
    Elongated ADA height
    Also has Sanagloss
    Two outlets rinse the bowl in a circle.

    You're paying for the taller bowl, and the Sanagloss coating in the bowl.

    Thanks for the reply Terry!

    But do you think, in your professional opinion, that the Drake 2 warrants an additional 80 dollars spent? In terms of the down-the-road costs?

    Well, that's hard to say.

    I gave my GF one. It is so much better then the Home Depot toilet it replaced.
    And yes, I could have spent less. The bowl stays clean, and I like that.

    And I could have spent less on my SUV too. A lot less.
    But then, it's great for skiing.
