TOTO Launches Drake II 1G Ultra High-Efficiency Toilet


MORROW, GA.—TOTO, a provider of high-performance toilets, enters the ultra high-efficiency toilet (UHET) arena with the Drake II 1G. The new Drake II 1G—with its proven Double Cyclone technology—represents the continued evolution of TOTO’s Drake II HET. It delivers ultra-high-efficiency flushing using only one gallon of water.

TOTO’s Double Cyclone technology features two water jets, instead of rim holes. These jets, positioned on each side of the bowl’s interior, deliver powerful swirls of water. The flushing action is strong and all types of waste are flushed away effectively. The bowl and rim are cleansed thoroughly with the flush. All of this is achieved using a gravity-based Double Cyclone technology.

Why Gravity & Not Pressure-Assist?

Recently, based on disclosures of personal injuries, property damage, and safety concerns attributable to pressurized systems, several of the major North American toilet manufacturers issued widespread product recalls for their pressure-assist toilets. TOTO has never sold pressure-assist toilets.

The Drake II 1G has updated styling. Its bowl and concave rim are coated with SanaGloss, TOTO’s nano-technology glaze that seals the porcelain with an ionized barrier. This creates a superslippery, non-porous surface that repels waste matter and bacteria. When protected by SanaGloss, the water that cleanses the bowl and rim during the flush also removes stains, residue, scaling, and lime buildup. Invisible organisms, including bacteria and molds, also are eliminated. When cleaning the bowl, consumers will need fewer harsh detergents, which are expensive and harmful to the environment.

The Drake II 1G is a Universal Height toilet. At 17” from base to seat, this ergonomic design is comfortable when sitting or rising, making it an attractive, two-piece, ADA-compliant toilet.
