We spend an average of 20 minutes a day sitting on the toilet. For some of us, this is the only private time we get during the day. That’s why you need to make sure your throne is fit for royalty.
Comfort is only part of the equation. Perhaps more so than with any other component of your home, you need your toilet to work properly. Every flush should effortlessly make its way out of your sight and into the sewer system. It’s only when this goes wrong that we think about it.
At the same time, a toilet can become a fashion accessory in your bathroom, too. Whatever your need is, our expert plumbers have ample experience installing countless toilets, urinals, commodes, thrones, johns, crappers, and pissoirs throughout central Wisconsin.
Although toilet installation itself is a relatively basic process, having your toilet professionally installed or upgraded is essential for proper functionality and longevity. An average toilet gets flushed over 2,000 times a year, so there is no room for error in concerning the integrity of water supply lines and drain seals. Improper installation can lead to leaks, water damage and mold. Inattention to detail can compromise water efficiency, operation and even user safety. Nobody wants to deal with a leaky toilet.
There are many variables that must also be considered when selecting a toilet to meet your needs:
One-piece vs. Two-piece: One-piece toilets integrate the tank and bowl into a single, seamless design that is easy to clean and aesthetically modern. Traditional two-piece toilets feature a separate bowl and tank, but are just as functional as any other design.
Bowl Shapes: Elongated, compact and round bowl shapes can accommodate different users, from children to adults, and provide varying levels of comfort.
Height: For persons with disabilities or mobility issues, higher toilet designs can alleviate discomfort and enhance bathroom safety.
Flushing mechanisms: Toilets can operate using a traditional gravity-flush method or the more advanced assisted-flush system, which forces water from the tank into the bowl and out through the trapway using electricity.
Water efficiency: Many modern toilets incorporate water-saving features that can be matched to your household’s needs. Approximately half of the toilets in the United States are older, less efficient models, resulting in over 1.6 billion gallons of wasted water each day.
Give yourself the gift of a comfortable, attractive, efficient toilet. You won’t regret it! Better yet, get yourself a great new toilet and have Steve's Plumbing & Heating install it.
