It’s a fact that everything in this world ages and becomes past its’ best. Whether it’s a living thing like a plant, your auto, or that favorite pair of Levi’s there comes a point where it’s got to go and be replaced by a new one.
This may be simply old age or the fact that the latest models are so superior and offer more features, or it may be a combination of the two. It’s something that we don’t think about very often, but it can also apply to your old toilet. It’s another one of those things that just sits there and we take for granted.
It May Just LOOK Old
However, the toilet tank may be getting old or starting to leak, the bowl could have become cracked, it doesn’t seem to flush as well as it used to, or it may just LOOK old and you feel that it really is time to upgrade it to one of the new low-flush toilets that will flush – well, anything really. Our toilet replacement plumber Wichita can install one of the very latest models.
The latest toilets come in standard low-flow version or Guaranteed Flush version which will flush just about anything. It is well worthwhile watching our video which you can see here which shows you what they can do. See a toilet flushing everything from ¾ of a loaf of bread to a whole toilet roll to 7lb of fruit salad!
You can also take advantage of the dual flush low-flow model which flushes 1 gallon when you go #1 and 1.6 gallons when you go #2. (Just before you get too excited, no the toilet doesn’t “know” that: you simply press one button for #1 and the other for #2!). Having our toilet replacement plumber in Wichita install one of these means that you will be really helping to save the environment.
The Biggest Consumption Of Water In The Wichita Home: Your Toilet
Flushing the toilet is the biggest single consumption of water in the Kansas home and amounts to 31% of all water use. If you have a family of four and you are using an older toilet (pre- 1990’s) you will use no less than 26,000 gallons of water a year. If you install a new low-flush toilet this reduces to 11,000 gallons per year. You can see that by having our toilet replacement plumber Wichita undertake this for you it will mean a considerable reduction in water usage, which in turn will cut down on your water bill.
It is worth installing a new toilet just on the basis of water usage and cost alone.
