Buying a new toilet might seem like a simple proposition. However, you need to consider several important things, when you go for shopping. You need to familiarize yourself with the recent advances, which has made them more efficient, Eco-friendly and comfortable than ever before. It is not necessary that a high price tag mean top performance.
Toilets have several moving parts and they might break or wear out over a period. If the toilet won’t stop running, then you can replace or repair the key toilet parts.
First, you need to make sure that the toilet fits into the space. Measure the distance between the drainpipe and the wall behind it. The rough-in size is 12-in, but you may find 10-in or 14-in in old homes.
Toilets are available in one piece or two-piece models. The latter ones are less expensive. Although both function similarly, when it comes to cleaning, one-piece models are easy to clean. You need to purchase various installation parts such as closet bolts, bolt caps, wax ring along with sleeve and toilet seat, if they are not included in the package.
These are available in elongated and round shapes. Oval shaped bowls are generally longer than the latter by two inches and they provide additional comfort too. Round bowls are perfect for small spaces and are not expensive.
Toilets are available as separate pieces and toilet seats are not included in it. Choose one that goes well with the decor of the bathroom and the toilet color. Consider the following things while choosing the seat:
· The shape of the seat depends on the bowl shape i.e., elongated or round.
· They are available in molded or real wood composition, polypropylene, plastic or cushioned vinyl.
· Slow-close seats are safe and quiet.
