3 Types of Toilets to Consider for Your Bathroom Remodel, Voluntown, Connecticut

With the arrival of summer, many people see an uptick in the number of house guests they receive and gatherings that they host. An outdated toilet that isn’t functioning properly or is contributing to plumbing problems can make these visits far less pleasant and create an embarrassing situation for you and your guests. As a result, it’s often worth replacing your old toilet as part of your bathroom remodel. Here are some options to consider. 

A Guide to Different Types of Toilets

1. Dual-flush Toilets

Dual-flush toilets are becoming increasingly popular. These toilets have two flush settings: one for liquid waste and another for solid waste. The flush for the former uses less water, as less force is required to clear liquids. As a result, these plumbing fixtures help conserve water daily, lowering your bills.

2. Comfort Height Toilets

plumbingThese toilets stand 17 to 19 inches off the floor—in comparison to the 15-inch standard height—making them ADA-compliant (Americans with Disabilities Act). As a result, they are well suited for elderly, disabled, or taller individuals, as they make it easier to sit and stand back up, reducing injuries. However, this option may be uncomfortable for others, as one’s legs may dangle.

3. Wall-Hung Toilets

Wall-hung toilets operate like standard ones, but the tank is placed in the wall, leaving only the bowl visible. This sleek, modern look conserves floor space, which is useful in smaller guest bathrooms. Also, they can be placed almost anywhere with wall space, making them a versatile option. However, the concealed tank can also make repair work more complicated, as it’s more difficult to reach.
