Is it time for a new toilet?
Is your toilet constantly clogging? When you flush your toilet does the water spin without flushing? If you think your toilet needs a repair, is it older than 10 years old? Does your toilet have stains that are no longer able to be cleaned? If you say yes to any of the above questions it is time to replace that toilet.
What options are there to consider?
When considering a toilet there are several options to consider. What color are you looking for? Do you want a round or an elongated bowl? Do you want standard height or a taller toilet? Do you want a standard seat or a slow close seat? It is estimated that we spend an average of an hour and a half to 2 hours on the toilet per week. The above questions will help you decide what options are best for you when choosing a new toilet.
What flushing power do you need in a toilet?
The amount of water flushed down a toilet no longer determines the flushing power. Rather, the size of the flapper and flush valve, the trap way, and the neck of the toilet determine the flushing power. Although toilets are now using a mere 1.2 to 1.6 gallons per flush, flushing power has increased. Toilets are rated by grams per flush (GPF). The larger the flapper, trap way, and neck the larger the GPF. Standard toilets have a GPF of 600 while high performance toilets have a GPF of 1000 -1200 GPF.
