- Grab a flashlight and look inside the toilet tank itself. If the number isn’t placed under the lid, it will be placed on one of the inside walls or above or near the water line in the sides and back of the toilet. Look closely at all parts of the water tank. The number may be written in two or three different sets of numbers so if you see anything like that, try to write them down to make searching for the parts easier.
- If you do not find any number under the lid or inside the water tank, it may have been omitted due to human error. You will have to contact Toto on totousa.com to get more information on how to recover the model number.
