A Guide to Buying a Suitable Toilet

April 13, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 510

The most popular toilet type in the world is the flush type which connects to a septic tank or a sewerage system depending on the site. Therefore, before choosing a toilet you need to consider the people using it and the bathroom's dimension. This is because an unfitting bowl would cause the owner and other people using it so much inconvenience. One of the factors you should consider before buying one is the rough in dimension. This is the distance from the wall to the central part of the sewerage drain. The standard range in dimension of the drain in United States is 12 inches.

Another factor to consider is bowl size. Since many people feel that elongated bowls are the best, you should consider if the bowl is s round so that you may save space in a small bathroom. Elongated bowls measure 31 inches from the wall and round bowls measure 28 inches. You should also consider that there are many types of toilets available in the market. There are affordable types like the two-piece which have the tank bolted on top of the bowl. A one-piece type has an integral bowl and tank and is more expensive than the two-piece one model. The one piece model is easy to clean because it has no seam.

Wall mounted models are ultra modern and add beauty to a bathroom. Cleaning under the wall mounted models is easy because they hang on the wall with a space between the floor and the bowl. These models are expensive to install because they need an exceptionally thick wall which will hold the bowl and house the tank. In case of maintenance, the wall has to be opened thus adding more expenses.

The flush system is another factor to consider if you want to save water. You should consider buying environmentally friendly systems that do not compromise on flushing ability. The height is also a factor to consider if you wish to buy a model. Many normal ones have an average height of 15 inches. Comfort models also known as ADA have a height of 16 inches and above. These comfort models are suitable for people with leg and back problems and disabled people. Colour and the design of the bathroom should be another factor to consider. The bowl should blend in well with other features in the bathroom.

If you consider buying different toilet seats in addition to the bowl, you should look for those which compliment the general ambience of the bathroom. They come in a variety of colours and designs. There are elongated, round and also decorative toilet seats. There are also other types, which are padded to give the user more comfort.
