Out of many things that we use daily in our home, one is a toilet! A commode or EWC is undeniably an integral part of our daily routine. A person visits the toilet 2500 times a year on average; hence it has to be chosen wisely! This piece of plumbing is quite underrated and pretty much ignored when it comes to choosing the right design and functionality.
In most homes, the toilet is used for 15 to 20 years on average. Therefore while choosing such a long-term liability you should consider several aspects that give you a feeling of fulfillment in the long run. If you are planning to repair your bathroom or build a new one, you must choose a toilet set that meets the criteria that make you happy seeing—and sitting on—every day. Factors to consider:
1) The Rough-in Distance
In plumbing terms, a “rough-in” is the distance from the wall behind the toilet to the bolt cap of your toilet. It is the most important factor to consider while choosing your commode design because based on it a plumber installs the toilet. It is the make or breaks when it comes to toilet installation.
Once the rough-in distance is measured, the next important factor is to choose a design for the toilet. This criterion rests entirely on the individual’s taste and mobility requirements. Toilet types include two-piece, one-piece, tankless, and wall-mounted. Two-piece toilets work well with a variety of styles, one-piece toilets are typically found in modern bathrooms due to their sleek appearance, tankless toilets are ideal for small spaces and gives a minimalist feel, wall-mounted commodes are very helpful in the case of family members with limited mobility and smaller bathrooms.
3) Trap way
Next comes the Trap way; there are two types of Trap: P-trap and S-trap. If your house is on the ground level, S-trap is suggested for your toilet because it is easy to connect the hatch-trap to the ground level. If the house is on the level upper from the ground, you can choose P-trap because it is connected directly to the wall. Hence, the trap is chosen based on the floor on which your bathroom is.
4) Flushing capacity (Water saving)
It is important to select a toilet with efficient flushing power for your needs. There are two types of flushing mechanisms: single flush and dual flush. The Single flush toilet uses more water, and so it is better to select a dual flush toilet over single flush ones. The toilet sets these days crafted with progressive hydraulic designs that consume less than fifty percent water compared to their older counterparts. It helps conserve water and save a fortune on water bills.
If you plan to stay in the place for a good time, you must think long term and choose a toilet set that allows for added comfort and more comfortable transfers from wheelchairs or walkers.
You should also see the functionality of the toilet available before choosing. There are automatic as well as semi-automatic toilets available. You can choose the model of your choice. The functionality also includes a water closet, seat cover, and plastic tank as well. The new-age toilet sets come with several features such as heated seats, foot warmer, self-deodorizer, automatic flush, a nightlight, or Bluetooth capabilities.
