There are many options to consider when buying a toilet. Toilets come in a varieties of heights, bowl shapes, colours, style, and flushing style. New developments in plumbing technology have led to even more options to consider and we’re going to talk about them!
Gravity-feed toilets are your standard toilets. As you’d guess from the name, these toilets use gravity to power the flush. Pushing the tank lever lifts the toilet flapper, and allows gravity to draw water from the toilet tank and into the toilet bowl. When the water level drops inside the tank, the float valve will lower which opens the water inlet valve and allows water to refill the tank.
The water from the tank goes down into the bowl and pushes the waste through the main drain. Modern toilets have something called an S-bend, which is a bend in the toilet that goes upwards. This traps water in the toilet the same way a P-trap. The trapped water blocks odors and gases from rising through the drain pipes into your home.
Once the water level sufficiently drops inside the tank, the flapper will close automatically. Water will proceed to fill inside the tank and the float valve will shut off the water when the water level becomes adequate.
On the outside, pressure-assisted toilets look the same as a gravity-feed toilet. Inside the tank, however, there is a secondary tank which creates air pressure to increase the power of the flush.
Pressure-assisted toilets have superior flushing abilities, so you have a lower chance of experiencing a toilet clog. They can also be comparatively water-efficient, requiring up to 30 percent less water to flush waste down the drain.
Choosing a pressure-assisted toilet is a good choice in older homes with sewage lines that clog frequently. However, there are a couple drawbacks compared to gravity-feed toilets.
Due to the nature of a pressure-assisted toilet and the air pressure used, these toilets are noticeably louder than a standard toilet. Secondly, it can be difficult to find replacement parts for pressure-assisted toilets, as they are less common. Lastly, pressure-assisted toilets cost more than traditional gravity flow toilets.
Vacuum-assist toilets create a vacuum in a tank within the main toilet tank. This vacuum tank is connected to the toilet trap, which carries waste out of the bowl and into the toilet drain. When you flush a vacuum-assisted toilet, the suction created in the vacuum tank is used to help suck waste out of the bowl.
These toilets are very water efficient and provide a very strong flush, but they are more expensive than a standard gravity-feed toilet.
A dual-flush toilet offers two options when you flush, which you choose by pressing two different buttons. This allows you to choose how much water is used during the flush. If the water needed to remove waste is minimal, you have the option to use less water to rid your toilet of the waste.
If you think that your toilet is going to need all the help it can get to flush away the waste, you can choose to use the full toilet tank of water.
Two-piece toilets are common. They consist of two pieces: the tank and the bowl. The advantages of two-piece toilets are they come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, they are less expensive, and you can replace either the tank or the bowl if they become damaged.
One-piece toilets are sleek-looking. As the name suggests, both the tank and the bowl are built into a single piece. One-piece toilets have less gaps where the tank and bowl connect, making them easier to clean. They are less prone to leaking, and they tend to be more durable and less leaky.
The downsides are one-piece toilets are more expensive and they require a replacement of the entire unit when something goes wrong.
One-piece toilets are growing in popularity and help perfect the look of a modern bathroom.
Wall Mounted Toilets
Wall-mounted toilets are toilets that are mounted to the wall. They’re smaller, very sleek, and can be adjusted to the perfect height for your body. Their appearance is modern and they don’t rest upon the floor, which makes it easy to keep the surrounding area clean.
However, they can be difficult to install and they are fairly expensive compared to other toilet types. Most bathrooms are designed with a floor-mounted toilet covering the drain. Transitioning your bathroom from a floor-mounted toilet to a wall-mounted toilet can require invasive work done on your home. But they look awesome!
Never worry about toilet paper shortages again with a bidet-toilet combo. These toilets save you from needing a separate bidet installation to keep clean. After using the toilet, simply clean yourself and enjoy continued freshness!
You read that right. Smart toilets are now a thing. When renovating your home and updating your bathroom, why not consider a toilet with futuristic capabilities? It might sound silly, but smart-toilets offer some interesting features.
Have you ever thought about how filthy the toilet handle might be? People tend to flush after wiping, and germs and bacteria can pass through toilet paper.
Don’t worry! Some smart toilets come with sensors that activate the toilet and flush waste when you’ve moved away. If you don’t want your toilet to decide when it’s time to flush, some models will trigger a flush when you wave your hand in front of a flush sensor!
These nifty toilets will stop water from entering the bowl if the water level climbs too high. This is especially useful for households with children, but anyone can appreciate an overflow-free toilet experience.
Cleaning a toilet bowl has never been so easy. With the simple press of a button, a cleaning agent will dispense into the toilet and flush nastiness away. You can even choose between a quick-clean and a deep-clean on some models. The future is now!
Heated Toilet Seat
Toilets with heated seats are now available, to keep your tush comfortable all winter long!
These toilets come with nightlights for the bowl, allowing you to see the target in the dark. These toilets are especially useful at night in bathrooms with loud fans.

Common Mistakes when Installing or Replacing Toilets
- Forgetting to shutoff the main water supply. Toilet water shutoff valves can be pretty troublesome.
- Don’t go too hard on the water shut off valve! Using too much strength may lead to needing a valve replacement!
- Forgetting to flush the toilet before removing it. Toilets are heavy without a bowl and tank full of water!
- Overtightening the nuts and bolts. This will not only make future maintenance difficult, but risks breaking the bolts. Overtightening leads to frustration!
- Buying the wrong size. Remember that toilets come in a variety of heights and bowl sizes. Make sure that it’s comfortable before installing!
- Lift with the legs! Don’t break your back removing the toilet.
