Local West Auckland Plumber For Toilet Replacement Or Repair
Without doubt, one the main needs in a house is a working toilet. You may be living in an older home, the toilet keeps getting blocked, maybe it drips after it has been flushed, or perhaps it is a 1970s olive green. Maybe now is the time to replace a toilet in your bathroom.
Choosing A Replacement Toilet
There are three main steps in replacing a toilet. They are:
- Water usage
Here are some thoughts on those three steps.
The Aesthetics Of A Replacement Toilet
As plumbers, we can’t really advise on the look or style of toilet you want. You know the colour scheme, and the style you are looking for. However, what we can do is advise on the type of toilet to suit your bathroom.
There are essentially three types of replacement toilet:
- Close coupled where the pan and cistern hide the flush pipe.
- Wall-hung toilets which are very modern in appearance and don’t have a floor mounted pedestal.
- Wall-faced toilets which take up less space.
We can advise on the type that will work for your bathroom.
Reducing Your Water Bill
The toilet in an average house consumes about 30% of the total water consumption. With the increasing cost of water in West Auckland, any increase in water efficiency will be welcome.
Modern replacement toilets have three- or four-star water efficiency ratings. The difference between their performance is considerable.
For example, a 3-star rating will consume 6 litres for a full flush or 3 litres for a half-flush. A 4-star toilet will consume four litres for a full flush.
In an average household that can be up to 50 litres less per person per day.
So, it makes sense to choose a replacement toilet wisely. If you are unsure, we can advise which toilet system will give you the best water efficiency to lower your water bills.
