Toilet Buying: What to Consider

Buying a toilet is not something you do every day, which is why you should go into the decision knowing exactly what you want and need. Here are a few factors to consider when buying a toilet. 

Type: Models include conventional tank toilets, touchless (wave your hand over a sensor to operate), wall-hung, dual-flush models (uses a lever or button to vary the amount of water used, saving money and water)—even a bidet, if that’s your thing.

Shape: There are two basic bowl shapes, elongated and round front. Research which one you prefer.

Height: What height off the ground do you prefer, or do you anticipate needing over the long term?

Check with your local water utility to see if buying certain types of toilets will qualify you for a credit or rebate.
