Re: How to determine GPF of existing toilet?

Pulled the trigger.

We went for a Drake II.

1.28Gpf/4.8Lpf

I installed it today, and was surprised at how straightforward installation was. This was my first toilet.

I suppose part of the ease of installation comes down to the flange being in good condition. It pays to be lucky sometimes.

The next step is to install a plug behind the toilet for the washlet seat.

Nice. I am very partial to the Toto toilets.

Toto toilets are high quality and pricy. With a 2-1/8" trapway, there should be plenty of "bandwidth" for even the largest "downloads".

I did not notice it was a Toto.... Man - I just can't justify the cost. I have to replace one more toilet with a Cadet 3...

I gave it much thought before pulling the trigger.
Main points were:
- the house only has one toilet
- my previous place had poorly performing water saver toilets and I didn't want to get stuck with a lemon
- a decent amount of 'noise' on the web about American Standard units that shouldn't have slipped through QA
- 75$ rebate

I had to use one of those higher toilets during a stay at a Ronald McDonald House. I don't like those toilets. I'd prefer one that was lower than normal.

It is odd- the Cadet we have is a 1.28 gal/flush and it seems noisy but outside of the bathroom - no one can hear it. It sounds loud in the bathroom but it does not seem to transmit past the inside. Even with the toilet literally next to the door.
