Types of Toilets For Your Installation 

There are many types of toilets available today, and it can be challenging to figure out which one is best for you. At Rooter Hero Plumbing, we provide quality services for California and Arizona, area homeowners and businesses including toilet installations, repairs, and replacements. We enjoy helping our clients get the most from their fixtures and we want you to have the same positive experience with your upgrade. Are you struggling with overwhelm because there are too many options? Here's a quick guide to help you make the right choice.

Types of Toilets

  • Gravity-Fed

A gravity-fed toilet is the most common type of toilet in use. It uses a siphon action to move water through a pipe. Toilets that utilize this system are often easy to install and maintain, but it does require some space between the top of the tank and the floor to allow for adequate water flow.

  • Vacuum-Assisted

A vacuum-assisted toilet works similarly to a gravity-fed toilet, but instead of using gravity to move water through, it relies on a special mechanism to create suction within the bowl. This helps prevent clogs from forming in pipes while still moving waste through them efficiently.

  • Pressure-Assisted

These kinds of toilets don’t use conventional flappers. Instead, they utilize pressurized air to push waste through the drain. They are often used in commercial buildings with higher amounts of traffic.

  • Tip Bucket Toilets

Tip bucket toilets have a simple design that uses an overflow tube inside an enclosed container. Rather than relying on a flapper, there is a lever that can be used to tip the bucket inside the tank over so that it drains into the bowl. Therefore, they are less prone to leaks and sweating than conventional gravity-fed systems.

  • High Tank Toilets

High tank toilets follow a more old-fashioned design, where the tank is located high up on the wall. A chain is pulled to release the water into the bowl. While they may not be the most practical choice available, some choose this style becasue they love the vintage look that it provides in their bathrooms.

Choosing the Right Toilet for Your Needs

Choosing the right toilet is a process that requires some research, but it's not as difficult as you might think. The main thing to keep in mind is that you want a toilet that fits your needs and your lifestyle. You'll want to consider:

  • What kind of space do you have in your bathroom
  • How much money you're willing to spend on your toilet
  • How long do you plan to keep it
  • The amount of time and effort it will take to maintain it

Why Professional Installation is a Must

Whether you need a new toilet because you’re current one is damaged or because you’re planning a major bathroom renovation project, it’s important that you hire a professional. Plumbing services offer a lot of benefits for property owners including:

  • Safety - If you try to install a toilet yourself, then there is always the risk of injury or property damage. When you hire a professional, they will have all the necessary tools and equipment to ensure that your toilet is working properly without harming the surrounding area.
  • Ease - There’s a big learning curve when it comes to tasks as complex as installing a new toilet. Hiring a professional means that the job will be done quickly and efficiently.
  • Quality Workmanship - A plumber knows how to do the job right so that they can make sure that every step is performed with the highest standards in mind.
