Atlanta Toilet Repair


Of all the many reasons to replace or upgrade your toilets, the most important one is often the least obvious one: water conservation. Within the past 10 years, toilet flush mechanisms have been restricted to allowing a flush of 1.6, or sometimes 1.0 gallons per flush. In years prior, 3.5 gallons was the standard, and before that, up to 8.5 gallons was common. With water conservation being such an important issue as it is today, all toilets are now regulated at very low flush volumes. There are several types of toilets for you to consider if you are upgrading or replacing.

In all new homes, standard 1.6 gallon per flush toilets are installed. They include internal parts designed to limit the amount of water used for each flush. They are available in an extremely wide selection of styles, colors, sizes, and some have very unique features. The height of the toilet’s bowl ranges anywhere from 15 inches to 17 1/2 inches, and can be round or elongated. The toilet’s tank is matched to the bowl, and holds all the components necessary for the toilet to function. Tanks come in different shapes and styles also. As far as colors go, white is the standard, but most companies offer a whole pallet of color options, from black to even pink.

Dual-flush is the newest innovation in toilet design. This type of toilet features two flush buttons, one activating a 1.0 gallon flush, the other the standard 1.6 gallon flush. Both flushes have their purposes, and without going into too much detail, let’s just call them 1 & 2.

High-end toilets feature very unique and often strange features. Such features as self-opening and closing lids, automatic flush, heated seats, and LED lighting are found on some.

If your toilet is beginning to clog repeatedly, starting to discolor, leak or anything else, or you just want to upgrade your bathroom, new toilets are the easy, and eco-friendly way to do just that.
