Griffin’s Grover Beach plumbing experts are here to share some surprising news…there’s more than one type of toilet out there! To spare you the shock of being stunned by all your choices, our Grover Beach toilet repair professionals have created a simple guide packed with all the top toilet tips you need to make an informed decision.
First, you’ll want to consider the toilet type. Types are defined by how they flush and dispose of waste. The most popular options are gravity-feed, pressure-assisted, double-cyclone, and waterless.
The most common (and oldest modern) type of toilet in North America, a gravity-feed toilet simply uses gravity to flush down waste.
While this toilet type is known for its powerful flushing action and efficiency, it also happens to be a bit louder than other options. They’re a good choice for large families where the toilet gets a lot of use.
A modern choice, the dual-flush toilet is growing in popularity due to its amazing water saving benefits. Why? Well, you can choose between a half flush or full flush each time you empty the bowl.
Double-cyclone toilets require a minimal amount of water per flush, which is sure to save you money on your monthly water bill.
Ok, now let’s talk looks. There are a wide variety of design options to consider. From color and dimension to bowl shape, seats, and flushing options.
On the practical side, toilet seat height is entirely up to you and what’s most comfortable. Standard toilet bowls are typically 14 to 15 inches in height. Comfort height (or seat height) toilets are between 17 and 19 inches in height.
HOW DO YOU WANT TO FLUSH?
There’s more than one way to flush! Options include single-flush, double-flush, and touchless flush. While single-flush toilets are the most popular, the touchless flush is catching on in popularity.
