So, you need a new toilet. You want to get the best one: one that meets your needs, is comfortable, and fits your bathroom’s size.
Raymark Plumbing decided to make this list of concerns and solutions for customers looking for new toilets. That way, people know what they’re looking for before they actually start looking.
Questions to Ask Yourself
- Am I interested in saving water? If the answer to this is yes, you should consider choosing a low flow toilet. These are energy and water efficient, so go with this style if that’s what you want. However, be warned, that this means they have higher chance of getting clogged. So, if you have a big household with a lot of toilet users, you may not want to choose this option.
- How big is my bathroom? The size of the bathroom may determine what bowl size you choose to go with. Most hardware stores sell oval-shaped (which are a little longer) and round-shaped (which are often shorter).
- Do I need or want a chair height toilet or a standard size toilet? A chair height toilet is obviously slightly higher than the standard, but it is ADA approved, which makes it much more user friendly for anyone in your home. The standard height may be what you choose, should you be the only user of the toilet and do not have difficulty sitting.
- How do I want it mounted? Toilets come either as a wall-mounted piece, a standing one-piece, or a standing two-piece. The differences here are this: wall-mounted ones are pretty friendly for walkers and wheelchairs that need to maneuver around it; a one-piece is more expensive but is easier to clean; and a two-piece is the most common and least expensive toilet.
