Let's face it, toilets are a necessity for every resident. But they may not always be the first thought when homeowners are looking to make improvements around the house.
For many families, as long as a toilet is working, there isn't a big urge to replace it. Yet, modern toilets offer a handful of benefits their old counterparts can't.
Dual flush toilets are becoming popular because they can use less water. Over a given month, this will ultimately be reflected in lower water bills. In terms of aesthetics, you may even find modern toilets have an overall sleeker design as well.
Before you rip out the old one, here are some tips to keep in mind to ensure the installation of a new toilet is as smooth as possible.
First, you'll need to prep the floor against spills. You'll also need to shut off the water supply valve and set up the toilet bowl. Make sure you place a bucket under the supply line, just in case.
Once that's complete, you'll now install the toilet bowl and supply line. Add the finishing touches, and you're done. Turn the main supply back on, open the stop valve and check for leaks after flushing around six times.
The process can be competed in a few hours and shouldn't be difficult, but if you run into difficulties installing a new toilet in your home, don't hesitate to reach out to your local Detroit for professional assistance.
