In the market for a new toilet? Contrary to popular belief, not all toilets are the same. There are hundreds of options when it comes to bowl size, height, shape and style. So how do you know which toilet is right for you? While we may not be able to pick it for you, we can give you these tips to keep in mind while shopping:
More Water = Better Flushing (Sometimes)
Although it’s not always the case, the more water a bowl holds the better flush it will produce. There are two main factors that come into play with water level - how far down the drain pipe the waste is carried (which helps prevent clogs) and how well the flush cleans the bowl. The downside to more water is that it can mitigate the effects of trying to conserve water.
We all know that a toilet’s job is to eliminate waste, but have you thought about eliminating wasted water? Look for high-efficiency water-saving technology when shopping for a new toilet.
Room To Work With
The shape of the bowl will play a role in the amount of free space you have in your bathroom. If you’re already feeling cramped, it’s better to choose a round bowl because it takes up less room than an elongated one. However, keep in mind that an elongated bowl may be more comfortable to some users so keep your friends and family members in mind.
