General Information About Toilets
There is a wide variety of toilets on the market. Using these helpful tips will enable you to choose the perfect toilet.
A toilet works by installing it over a drainage hole in the floor and attaching it to water supply lines. It has a base that is attached to the floor over a drain with a wax seal and affixed to the floor with two long bolts. The tank is assembled on the back of the toilet bowl to provide a flow of water necessary for flushing the toilet.
Toilet flushing types range from low flow, gravity, dual, automatic, and pressure assisted. All types of toilets use water to move the waste down the drain to a septic or sewer system. There are advantages to each type of toilet flushing system.
When toilet manufacturers implement water efficient specifications, their product will attract green-conscious consumers. A company can submit their toilet specifications for testing and receive a certification that their product met certain standards.
Evidence found in ancient ruins reveal the toilet was invented around 2800 BC. The first toilets were holes dug in the ground and connected to an advanced waste system. In modern societies, toilets are connected to sewer systems or septic tanks. Most many people take toilets for granted, however, there are many people without the modern convenience of a toilet.

The main difference between a one-piece and two-piece toilet is design. The one-piece model is manufactured in one piece - the tank and the bowl are molded together. The two-piece toilet is two pieces: the tank and the bowl are two separate components.
When choosing between an elongated or round toilet bowl, keep in mind the round bowls are less expensive, but there is less seating room. The elongated toilet bowl offers a larger seating area, making it a more comfortable choice.
Many consider an elongated toilet a luxury toilet. It offers a larger, more comfortable seating area. However, they are not recommended for tight spaces but with the design of larger bathrooms, these models are becoming a popular choice for homeowners.
The advantages to the dual flushing toilet allows the user the option of two flushes, thus reducing the amount of water used per flush. With the option of the short flush for liquid waste and the long flush for bulk waste, consumers are no longer left with emptying 6 to 7 liters of water per flush. Therefore, the dual flushing toilet makes it environmentally friendly and a cost-conscious purchase.
Dual flushing toilets options include an American design, dual variations, a power model, a wash down siphonic model and a wash down model. Many homeowners are conscious when choosing an efficient toilet due to the increasing awareness of water shortages and rising water cost. This makes the dual flushing toilet a smart choice.
Dual flushing toilets offer the consumer a choice between water usage with each flush. With the short flush, you use only half the water and with the long flush, you use all the water to clear the waste from the bowl. The main function of a dual flushing toilet is to conserve water and as a result, a reduction in the consumer's water bill.
Even though the initial cost of the tank less toilet is higher than that of the traditional tank models the major draw to the tank less model is the power of the flush which eliminates waste more efficiently which in turn reduces the amount of water used by not having to flush more than once.
Due to the recent inventions of the low flush and ultra low flush models many consumers today are seeking these models to save water as well as money. The initial up front cost is considerably higher however, the return on the investment will be seen in low water bills in months to come.
