Taking the two-piece look to the extreme retro chain-pull toilets with tanks set higher on the wall give a certain old-world charm to a room. A well-made high-tank toilet will function just as well as a “close-coupled” (standard) option so the choice comes down to look more than mechanics in most situations although these toilets can be a little more expensive. If you want your toilet to be noticeable and charming instead of minimalist and hidden away this is an option to consider.
What Guy likes best being a plumber is the bidet feature which conserves water and cuts down on the amount of toilet paper that gets flushed down the pipes. He says while toilets continue to use less water people aren’t producing less waste or using less toilet paper. And that has wreaked havoc on sewer lines. He sees a ray of hope with bidet systems. When people use them they use less toilet paper which allows flushing with less water and puts less strain on plumbing.
On the other hand some say that the frequent use of bidets especially warm-water bidets can disturb the normal microflora in the region below and even facilitate infection by fecal bacteria according to a research paper by Pankaj Garg and Pratiksha Singh published for the American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons.
Two-piece toilets consisting of a separate tank and seat base are the more common option. The pieces are made to fit together but they’ll always have some sort of seam which can become a trouble spot for cleaning. Two-piece toilets have the advantage of being easier to transport and carry which can be important for DIYers especially if the toilet needs to be carried up stairs.
Although the humble toilet isn’t the first thing that comes to mind when thinking of a visually stunning bathroom it’s still an important element with just as many varieties to choose from as other plumbing fixtures. Choosing well the first time (and resisting the temptation to cut corners) will avoid regrets and possibly more expense down the road. Read on for a handy breakdown of key features you should consider before settling on the right fixture for you.
