Multi-Featured System

Not only is TOTO USA’s Drake Transitional toilet WaterSense certified, but its unique design as a lip with a lid also serves as a temporary storage shelf.

The highly efficient system has a “Highly Recommended” rating on the Maximum Performance Test for successfully removing 1,000 grams of solid waste with a single flush. The bowl and rim are coated with a CEFIONTECT nano-technology glaze, sealing the porcelain with an ionized barrier, which creates a super-slippery, non-porous surface
