When it’s time for a new toilet in West Milford, NJ, you need someone who can get to your home quickly, figure out what needs to be done, order the parts or arrange for their delivery, and get them installed. That’s what we’re here for – to help you select a new toilet that meets your needs, get it installed for you, and to aid you with all your bathroom remodel needs.
If your toilet isn’t working anymore, it’s a good sign it should be repaired, but how do you know when your toilet should be replaced? Here are some things to look for as you’re making a decision about installing a new toilet:
Almost all toilets have a similar tank capacity. When choosing a tank, you’ll have flush valve size and flush lever positioning to consider, as well as the flushing system.
The flush valve, which is located at the center of the tank, is activated by the flush lever and releases the water held in the tank. The larger the flush valve, the higher the rate of water flow. Flush levers are positioned either on the side, front or top of the tank.
The pressure-assisted and gravity-flush systems are the two standard flushing systems available.
Pressure-Assisted Flush System: Pressurized air forces water into the bowl when flushed, reducing the chance for clogs. This system is noisy, expensive and may require costly maintenance.
Gravity-Flush System: The most common and simplest system, it uses the water weight to generate flushing pressure. The pressure forces everything from the tank into the bowl and through the S-shaped trapway. A siphoning action completes the flush. This flushing system is quieter and requires less maintenance than a pressure-assisted flushing system.
Dual Flush: This is a relatively new system for saving water without sacrificing efficiency. There are two flushing options for a full or partial flush (ex. 1.6 gallon flush and 1.1 gallons per flush).
Waterless Toilets: Where water or plumbing is not available or when portability is required, a self-contained waterless unit is an option.
