Toilet Buying Guide
When it comes to buying a new toilet, we know that several considerations must be made. After all, this fixture will probably be a daily part of your home or workplace use for quite sometime. As a result, our expert plumbers in San Diego have compromised a helpful guide of things to think about when making your new purchase.
The first thing to consider is flush power. You’ll want a toilet that flushes effectively without creating clogs. An experienced San Diego plumber knows that the flush rating for a toilet determines how effective it is when removing waste without clogging. California has specified regulations in place, but there are toilet models that will achieve your desired results with less chance of clogging than others.
The shape of the bowl is another important factor to consider before making your purchase. Many believe that an elongated bowl is more comfortable. However, a round bowl is better suited to tight spaces. So, if space is not an issue in your bathroom, our experienced plumbers in San Diego would recommend that you choose an elongated bowl. And, think on what you have now, or have had in the past. What shape has been more comfortable?
Finally, when selecting a toilet, you will want to factor in height. Standard toilets are either 14 or 15 inches, while 16 and 17-inch toilets are becoming more popular with taller adults and all ADA compliant toilets are 17 inches. Our team has experience with installing and servicing all different types of toilets including circular and elongated along with standard and tall heights. It is also important to know the distance from the wall to the middle of the toilet flange; this measurement is how our skilled plumbers will determine which toilets we can replace in your space. And, of course, we always suggest you choose a height that feels most comfortable.
