    I wouldn't spend extra for a Drake II in a rental property.

    Thanks, everyone. Sounds like I should steer clear of the AS Cadet-3 & Champion-4 for any use and the Toto Drake II for my rental.

    Is it worth spending more for the Eco Drake (I) with SanaGloss for a rental (or am I misinformed, and there are no Eco Drake toilets with SanaGloss)?

    Thank you again.
    Best,

    The elongated Drake CST744E [original Eco Drake] does indeed also come in a version with Sanagloss. Its model number is CST744EG. Its price is about 20% more than the basic version (so if the basic version is, say, $205 street price, then the one with Sanagloss would be about $250).

    I think the Sanagloss coating is pretty robust, but I'm not sure that it's necessary or worth it for a rental.

    I would hesitate to get the Sanagloss for the rentals. The Sanagloss finish can be destroyed by harsh cleansers which renters may use not realizing the damage potential. Your are wise in getting the Toto toilets for the units however because Toto toilets rarely, if ever, clog. The last thing a landlord wants is a call in the middle of the night to come and deal with a clogged toilet. The basic Toto Drakes are awesome performers at a modest price, and while there are more expensive models, all Toto toilets do the basic functions a toilet needs to do.

    Thanks for the information, wjcandee and Gary. The Toto Eco Drake (I) without Sanagloss will be going into the rental bathrooms.

    Thanks again, and have a great weekend.
