Dissatisfied with how your loo functions? Want to buy a better toilet? Here are a few things you should know before you make that purchase.
Gravity fed models
These are your traditional variety toilets which use the force of gravity to flush water down the bowl. This creates a siphon action which pushes down waste into the sewer line. These toilets are the least expensive. They last for a long period of time and make lesser noise than pressure fed models. Over a period of time, the flush system weakens and the clogged bowl must then be flushed manually using a bucket.
Pressure assisted models
These toilets build up water pressure in sealed tanks that is shot out evacuating all the waste. There is a water pressure requirement for these toilets that can be easily checked by the plumber. Reliable in removing clogged elements from the bowl, these toilets are more expensive but the flush system lasts for a longer period of time. The flush system also makes a lot of noise and might be embarrassing.
Vacuum assisted models
They are similar to gravity fed toilets but use vacuum spaces to provide a stronger flush. They are more reliable than gravity fed toilets and quieter than pressure assisted toilets, however they are more expensive than both.
Dual flush models
They are essentially gravity fed toilets. They have two flushes, one for a weaker flush and another for a stronger flush. This function saves water. They are cheap eco-friendly variants to above toilets.
High efficiency models
These toilets have a powerful flush and use a small amount of water. An eco-friendly variant that is effective but not cheap.
Your toilet won’t be complete without some accessories.
