TOTO CST744SG#01 Drake 2-Piece Toilet
This modern two-piece toilet is available in glazed cotton white. It has a high-profile tank with a chrome-plated activation lever mounted on the side. The bowl is elongated. The seat is not included. Both tank and bowl are protected by TOTO’s patented SanaGloss glaze, a high gloss ionized barrier that actively repels debris, bacteria, and mold. This reduces the need to clean the toilet with damaging chemical cleaners, allowing the toilet to retain its gloss and bright color for years.
The toilet is equipped with TOTO’s quiet and powerful G-Max flushing system. This system sports a three-inch flush valve – that’s 125% larger than regular flush valves. The flush valve is paired with a wide fully-glazed trapway. Together they produce a commercial grade flush that only uses 1.6 gallons of water per flush (GPF).
