Toilets, like any other plumbing equipment, are purchased for a fairly long time, so its choice and purchase should be approached thoughtfully. If a quality product is purchased, it will be durable and will retain its original appearance for a long time and please the eye. Before proceeding to a direct consideration of the models of our rating of the best toilet bowls, we decided to give the key parameters of these products and tell you exactly how they affect the ease of use of plumbing.
What do you pay attention to when buying a toilet bowl in 2022?
According to the installation technology, all models are divided into three large groups – floor, hinged and mortise structures. Most often, it is the first type that is encountered, and modern products are quite simple in terms of installation, almost anyone can perform installation work. According to the dimensions of the design are standard or compact. The last type of toilets is best suited for rooms that do not have a large area.
If we consider products in terms of fixing the tank, then they are separate or monolithic, when the tank and the toilet itself are a single unit, however, such models weigh quite a lot, which makes their installation difficult. Designs with a separate tank are the most popular, in addition, the tank can be placed both on a special shelf of the toilet itself, and be in a suspended state – depending on the model.
The shape of the bowl also plays an important role in terms of choosing a toilet bowl. The classic form is the dish-shaped one – the design has a horizontal platform, however, it is problematic to find such models for sale today, since they are practically not produced. Much more structures are equipped with a funnel shape, where the walls are almost sheer. An intermediate product is a visor design, where the slope is not sharp, but rather smooth – this allows for maximum hygiene.
Toilet bowls can be made from various materials. One of the most versatile is sanitary faience. Such models are distinguished by good hygiene and a long service life – about 30-40 years. However, earthenware is porous and will absorb dirt, bacteria and odors. Recently, it has been replaced by porcelain. With all other similar characteristics, it has less porosity, due to which the service life is increased to 50-60 years. On sale you can find metal toilet bowls made of cast iron or stainless steel, plastic structures, natural or artificial stone.
When compiling our ranking of the best toilet bowls, we considered not only the above parameters, but also the price-quality ratio of the model, reviews from users and professional plumbers, and so on. We hope that the information we have collected will help you choose the most suitable design.
