Whatever you call it – make yourself privy to the Porcelain Throne. For many years, Toto has been the leader in toilet flushing technology: born on the island of Japan, Toto, has years of experience flushing down a lot with little water. Because of new environmental laws, manufacturers have advanced their flushing technology towards less gallons per flush (gpf). So that dual flush craze that happened about 10-15 years ago is actually becoming obsolete. Now all WC’s are water efficient, flushig away waste with 1.6 gpf – 0.8 gpf. Buying a new toilet won’t just update your bathroom, but you’re saving the Earth too!
Water closets are using less water, and we have grown taller. The new standard height for the bowl is 16 1/2″ plus the varying thickness of the toilet seat. Comfort/Universal Height or ADA (American Disabilities Act) compliant lavatories are excellent remodel choices for the homeowners aging-in-place and living longer in their homes as well as for the hip or knee replacement patient.
You never thought you’d spend so much time considering a toilet, and you don’t have to find clever ways to hide the John anymore – toilets are looking quite sleek these days! Especially with the skirted design, you don’t have to see the piping; plus it’s easier and faster to clean. One-piece toilets are a bit easier to clean than the two-piece versions (two-piece toilets are comprised of tank and bowl). In addition to saving water and looking better, your bathroom is getting smarter with integrated bidet seats. Be sure to check out the new options with bidets!
