Choosing The Best Low Flow Toilet For Your Home

Toilet Repair

The toilet is, and will always be, one of the most important items in any home. While the color and cost may matter to some, the water the toilet uses and how well it flushes waste is the most important aspect of selecting a new toilet. These days, advances in plumbing technology ensure homeowners can install and use an efficient low-flow toilet without any worries of clogs.

Low-Flow Toilets

Since their inception in 1994, low-flow toilets have used 1.6 gallons per flush or less, as per the federal standard. The first generation wasn’t very efficient. The toilets left much to be desired. Most manufacturers began to tweak their creations to what we see today. The manufacturer has implemented very specific design improvements, including large trap-ways and bigger flush valves to prevent clogging and allow more water through, respectively.

Selection Tips

First off, it’s important that you don’t make the decision lightly. You’ll be using a new toilet for years to come, so pinching pennies or being too lenient may lead to trouble down the line. You shouldn’t expect a more powerful flush from a cheap toilet. You should plan on spending anywhere from $100 to $500 for a regular gravity toilet and $200 to $600 for a pressure-assisted model.

Furthermore, unique features may cost more than they’re worth. In some cases, you could purchase a custom seat or unique flush mechanism, which may seem trendy at first, but will cost you money years later. The reason for this loss is usually associated with repairs, replacements, and malfunctions. You may end up regretting the decision sooner rather than later.
