AppliancesConnection carries a wide range of toilet models, this guide will help you to buy a toilet by telling about the many features. Before shopping for a new toilet, it is always good to familiarize oneself with the latest advances that help the environment by saving water and also save money on water and sewer bills.

Select Flush Type:

Dual Flush – Dual flush toilets handle solid and liquid waste differently, giving the user a choice of flushes. It is design to help conserve water and using less water to flush liquid waste makes sense.

Gravity Flush – The simplest and perhaps even the oldest of the toilet flushing system is gravity assisted flush system is the one that uses the gravitational power to flush the waste.

Siphon Jet – Siphoning-toilets incorporate an ‘S’ shaped water-way. The water-ways in these toilets are designed with slightly smaller diameters, so that the water-way will naturally fill up with water, each time it is flushed, thus creating the siphon action.

Double Cyclone Flush – The Double Cyclone flushing system harnesses the power of water and gravity to create a more powerful cleaning action. Two nozzles (instead of rim holes) use water more efficiently for a better rim and bowl wash and result in less trapped dirt and bacteria and less cleaning.

G-Max Flush – It has an extra-wide flush valve and wide glazed trapway offer increased flow, drawing water into the bowl more quickly, and then away more forcefully . And with G-Max’s powerful siphon jet, the system makes sure what goes down stays down.

Select Bowl Shape: There are two types of standard shapes available the Elongated bowl and the Round bowl. If for your bathroom space isn’t an issue, a toilet with an elongated bowl works great. If you have a smaller bathroom, or a half-bath, choose a round bowl toilet that will fit into tight spaces.

Select mounting style: There are three types of mounting system used in a typical flush design; Wall Mounted, Free-Standing and Floor. Wall mount toilets are not common and will usually only be used when replacing a wall mounted toilet because they require a different rough-in all together.

Select Height: Toilet height is another factor to be considered when buying a toilet. The American Disabilities Act (ADA) requires public toilets to be a minimum of 17 inch from the floor to the top of the seat. Standard height toilets are around 15 inch total from the ground to the top of the seat. The standard size is still great for the majority of people, it really is just a matter of preference. Comfort height toilets are becoming more and more common because they are actually really comfortable and much easier to get off of.

AppliancesConnection carries the top brands for toilets like American Standard, Ariel, Kohler, Toto etc. with a lot of choice in color.
