Share This Post

In this blog post, we will talk about the choice of a toilet (WC in Europe) based on our own experience. This time, we will share with you our experience as a professional toilet manufacturer. And let’s study how to look for the best economical toilet. By economical, it means affordable but also less water-consuming. Indeed, the toilet is one of the good investments to make in your home. So how do you choose the best toilet?

Characteristics of a good toilet

1. Company reputation

If you choose a company that is reputable for manufacturing toilets, you can easily replace parts with their customer service. A certified sanitary appliance (CSA) also guarantees the reputation of the manufacturer.

Such as Joy & Fortune, they’re a toilet manufacturer with over 20 years of experience. In addition, their products are sold over the world.

Like faucets, toilets are items used daily in your home and it is better to choose a quality product. This does not mean that you have to take the most expensive model. An entry-level model from a good company such as American Standard, Kohler, or Toto will always be good.

Consider paying at least $400 for a good toilet and nothing prevents you from watching the sales to get a good deal.

2. Choosing the type of model

There are three types of toilets:

  • One-piece toilet
  • Two-piece toilet(separate tank and bowl)
  • Wall-mounted toilet

Of these three models, the wall-mounted toilet is much more expensive than the others because it must be fixed with a support to the wall and the tank is inserted behind a partition. That’s why we see little in Nordic, except in complete bathroom renovations or new homes.

If the wall-mounted toilet and the one-piece toilet are visually prettier and easier to clean, the favorite of repairers, i.e. plumbers, is the two-piece toilet. Indeed, it is much easier to change a component if necessary.

3. The power of the flush/water saving

The standard toilets of old used about 13.2 liters of water per flush. Environmental madness! The new toilets do the same job with 4.8 liters.

6L/3L dual flush models have lost their purpose due to improved toilet performance. Manufacturers have increased the diameter of the opening between the tank and the bowl, as well as that of the siphon at the base of the bowl. As a result, a more powerful flow of water evacuates and cleans much better.

Augus One-Piece Toilet

For example, Augus One-Piece Modern Style Siphonic Toilet Dual-Flush 3/6 L. Thanks to its 2 3/8 inch siphon, the widest in the industry, and it is the 4-inch flush valve, there is no need for a plunger or to call the plumber to unblock a clogged toilet.

To make a good choice: look for WaterSense-certified toilets because they use at least 20% less water than traditional models. The MaP program, or Maximum Performance Testing Program, also tests the maximum performance level of the toilet. Good toilets should flush over 350g per flush.

4. Quality of Porcelain

Finally, what makes a good toilet is the thickness of the lacquer on the porcelain that covers the bowl. It allows waste to flow away without resistance. Over time, poor-quality toilets will have worn enamel and hard-to-clean deposits.

5. Shape, height: aesthetic and space preferences

As for the elongated or round shape of the toilet seat, and the height of the toilet, these are aesthetic details that do not affect performance. It’s up to you to choose them according to your preferences and your space.

The bidet: the practical and ecological addition!

Bidet solutions that attach to existing toilets are enjoying great popularity. No need to use toilet paper, which has recently proven to be a very scarce commodity in all countries. More seriously, the bidet is the ecological object of the hour.

All you will need to add a toilet seat with a built-in bidet to your existing toilet is a power outlet, behind your toilet.

Indeed, even if there are economic models that are not heated (therefore do not require batteries or an electrical outlet), it is not necessarily very pleasant. It is better to invest a few hundred dollars more to be able to benefit from a trickle of warm, non-frozen water on the butt. Otherwise, it must wake up in the morning !!

These bidet seats come with many functions that can be controlled by a joystick: lowering of the seat cover, activation of the water jet, and seat and water temperature control. The higher-end models even have built-in dryers or air fresheners.

In fact, they are already very popular in North America. We can bet that the bidet may soon become necessary in Europe’s homes.

So, will this post help you choose a toilet? Remember that sometimes: “more expensive is cheaper!” “.
