Toilet Buyer’s Guide
There’s a lot of technical terms being thrown around in these toilet reviews, so it may benefit you to brush up on some of the features to look for when purchasing the best toilet. Here is a quick breakdown of some terms you’ll often see and how they relate to your desired model.
GPF or Gallons Per Flush: How much water your toilet uses per flush. Toilet water use can vary, some older toilets can use 3.5, 5 or sometimes even 7 gallons per flush. Federal plumbing standards now limit any new toilets to have 1.6 GPF or lower.
One-Piece vs. Two-Piece Toilets: A one-piece toilet is just that, one solid, connected commode. These toilets have a more modern look and are often easier to clean than two-piece toilets. Most toilets are two-piece, meaning the tank is bolted to the bowl. Generally, these are less expensive than one-piece toilets, take a bit more time to install and are harder to clean.
Rough In: This is important to making sure your new toilet will fit in your bathroom. The rough in is the distance between the wall behind the toilet and the center of the drainpipe or the bolts that hold the toilet to the floor.
Elongated vs. Round Bowls: Elongated bowls provide more comfort than round bowls, but often require more room. Round bowls don’t need as much space, but are generally smaller and not as comfortable.
Keep these terms in mind when comparing features and price to find the best toilet for your needs!
