Toilets can last for a long time, but if parts need to be replaced or you're interested in other options, it may be time to look for a new one. Here are some things to look for in your next toilet:
If you have a toilet that's incredibly short or too high, now's your chance to fix that. The standard height for a toilet seat is 17 inches, but other sizes might be easier to use for those who are tall or elderly. Height is one of the most important considerations for comfort and usability, so it should be one of your main priorities.
Toilets take up a lot of water. In fact, about 30 percent of all residential water is flushed away. For this reason, many homeowners pursue a new toilet that focuses on high efficiency and has good water sense. In some cases, models use 1.28 gallons per flush, which with the help of other conservation tips, can help save a significant amount of water over time and help lower your bill costs.
Toilets come in a number of styles for better functionality and aesthetic appeal. Homeowners have a choice between one or two piece toilets. Two-piece fixtures are easy to transport and carry, but one-piece toilets simpler to clean and look more modern. Once this is determined, additional choices open up including high-tank and in-wall options. These options can be more expensive, but may appeal to certain personal tastes. In-wall toilets in particular are harder to install because they're heavy, and require a professional to put them in.
