: Hi Terry,
: I have a couple of questions about the Toto Drake you
: delivered to my house a couple of weeks ago. First,
: thank you for your very helpful installation advice.
: I got it installed without much problem and it is
: working well, except for one thing.
: I find that it doesn't flush completely unless you
: hold the flush lever down. If you just pull and
: release, the flapper falls back down immediately
: and closes while the tank is still half full. Is
: this supposed to be, or is the tank I got missing
The toilet is designed to use less than 1.6 gallons. The tank hold about five.
That's how most toilets work nowadays.
The Toto with the 3" flush valve seems even quicker than most of the others that use 2".
The water that drops, drops even quicker going through that large opening.
: Also, these models are advertised to have a glazed
: trapway, to reduce friction of waste material as it
: passes through. Sticking my fingers up under the
: hole at the bottom of the bowl, I can feel that it
: is rought inside, not glazed. So are they all like
: that, or did I get one from a bad batch?
That's normal. Everyone I've seen is like that.
: Thanks again for your very informative web site.
