New Toilet Installation and Bidet Installs Saves Water
Are you interested in new toilet installation and/or bidet installs from Big B's Plumbing? I think most would agree, our toilets are one of those fixtures that last forever. We can change the flapper and a few other parts every few years, and they just keep going. Experts say that a toilet can last up to 50 years. No one should have a toilet that's older than 1994, but I assure you they are still out there. In 1994 a bill was passed and signed by President George H.W. Bush. It is called the Energy Policy Act (EPAct) and sets the standards. For instance, toilets sold after 1994 could only use 1.6 gallons per flush (GPF) and faucets 2.5 gallons per minute (GPM). Showerheads could not spray more than 2.5 GPM. Any toilet before 1994 uses 3.5 gallons a flush and should have their toilet replaced.
We Spend A Large Amount of Time In The Bathroom
How important are our toilets? Other than the obvious reasons, here are some fun facts. A not-for-profit group polled 2000 adults, and what they discovered is that men spent an hour and forty-two minutes a week going to the bathroom. Women took care of business in eighty-five minutes a week. Our toilets are incredibly important for many. It's a quick getaway from the day's concerns. For some, we scroll through our phones or read a magazine. Whatever the case, it can give us a few extra minutes of relief while we do our duty.
When Buying A Toilet, We Have A Lot Of Choices
We have a lot of choices when it comes to purchasing a new toilet. The first thing you want in a toilet is comfort. Do you want an elongated toilet seat or a round one? Elongated seats seem to be more comfortable while oval seats take up less space, so they're ideal for small bathrooms. The standard height for a toilet is 14 to 16 inches, but are available in 16 to 17 inches for tall people and those with mobility issues.
You also have to consider what design you prefer: a two-piece, one-piece, or wall-mounted unit. Two-piece toilets are usually the most common and generally cost less. The one-piece design has a sleek modern look, are easier to clean, and they typically cost slightly more. Wall-mounted units do not touch the floor and have specific building requirements attached to them. When you need a new toilet installation, we have you covered at Big B's Plumbing.
Flushing Accounts For 30% Of Our Water Usage
You may wish to consider a toilet stool for a more ergonomically correct way to sit on your toilet. For many makers, you have a choice of colors. Some come with built-in bidets, while others have seat warmers. Since our toilets use up to 30% of our home's water usage, consider buying a toilet that uses less than the recommended 1.6 GPF.
Consider Water Usage When Buying A Toilet
Some have suggested that high-efficiency toilets require more than one flush. Nothing is further from the truth. In contrast, that may have been true in the late 1990s but that is not true today. The latest in toilet design and technology give them powerful flushes while using much less water. Dual flush toilets have also made a splash among toilet makers and consumers. A dual flush toilet allows you to flush 1.1 GPF for liquid waste and 1.6 GPF for solid waste. When you need a new toilet installation, trust the expert from Big B's Plumbing.
What Is A Smart Toilet?
Not that we didn't already have enough choices, incomes, smart toilets. What is a smart toilet? It may also be referred to as an intelligent toilet. Smart toilets process data and have several interactive functions that involve intellectual thinking by the end-user. These toilets can cost five thousand dollars or more, although some makers have developed their own version of a smart toilet to bring the cost down so the average household could afford one. TOTO is the leader for these toilets, and Kohler follows shortly behind.
