Your Toilet Choices

Whether you’re completing a renovation or repairing a leak, at some point, your toilet will need to be replaced. That’s when you find out that toilets have come a long way in the past few years. We all know there are water-saving models, but that’s not even scratching the surface, anymore. Here, we cover 3 of the most popular toilet styles, the benefits they offer, and each one’s downfalls to help you make the right toilet decision for your home.

2-Piece Toilet

A great advantage in the traditional two-piece toilets is that the pieces can be replaced separately. This means if your tank begins to leak, you will only need to replace the one piece which will be less expensive. However, these models are typically harder to clean and can leak easier than their one-piece counterparts.

1-Piece Toilet

One-piece toilets offer a distinguished, uniform look. They are also easier to clean than a two-piece system because there are no open spaces for germs and bacteria to creep into. These toilets are also available with smart technology that can include a tankless design and heated seats. However, these toilets can pose a problem if damaged due to the entire piece needing to be replaced.

Wall Mounted Toilet

These are the cleanest, sleekest option with a modern look and only one tankless piece that’s connected to the wall. This system is extremely easy to clean due to the lack of crevasses, open areas, and creases, and provides water saving technology with every flush. These systems are available with features like heated seats, smart flush technology, and even water temperature control. These systems are extremely pricey, and often need extensive prep work to reroute the plumbing lines to the wall. However, these systems can create an incredibly convenient and clean environment.

Each toilet choice offers substantial benefits and downfalls. For more information on which toilet style is right for your home, or to schedule an installation, call the experts at EW Plumbing.
