Mistakes to avoid when getting a new toilet bowl

Most people often do not put a lot of thought when doing a toilet bowl installation. However, what laymen would assume as a straightforward process actually consists of careful planning and considerations. Contrary to what several homeowners think, buying a toilet bowl involves more than just going to a hardware store and picking up an item that catches your eye. One should always do prior research before purchasing anything that they do not have full knowledge about. The smallest details matter when it comes to toilet bowl installation – from toilet bowl dimensions to its height and design.

Need to do a toilet bowl installation soon? Be sure to avoid the following mistakes:

1. Buying a toilet equipped with non-standard replacement parts

Quite a number of people often opt for unique and premium brands for their home. However, this is not typically advisable as high-end household items usually require spare parts that are harder to find. This means that if the toilet bowl ever needs to be repaired, it would take some time for it be completely fixed as spare parts might not easily be available. Remember to choose a standard design to ensure that you can easily find replacement parts when your toilet bowl requires repair work.

Many HDB flats and commercial places in Singapore feature toilet bowls equipped with a noisy toilet flusher. These are pressure-assisted toilets which mostly water-efficient and perfect for keeping the toilet clean for a long time. However, the only downside to it is that they tend to make a forceful sound when in use. While there are toilet bowl brands working on improving this feature, keep a look out on the ones that do not have a noisy flusher.

3. Buying a toilet equipped with a slamming lid

Although some people might not consider this a problem, sometimes the toilet lid may slam onto the bowl when closed. This is an important factor to consider when you are sharing a house with other people as this may disrupt their sleep at night. You can easily find a toilet bowl equipped with a slow-drop toilet lid that does not make any sound.

4. Choosing a toilet bowl with the wrong toilet seat height

It is highly recommended to take note of the toilet seat height before you buy a toilet bowl in Singapore for your home. Choosing a toilet bowl with a high toilet seat can be very uncomfortable to some, especially when you’re short or have children at home. A low toilet seat and be equally uncomfortable as well. Having considered these points, make sure that you buy the right toilet bowl size.

5. Choosing a colorful toilet

While it might be tempting to buy a toitlet bowl in a bright, pastel color, most interior designers still recommend homeowners to choose a white toilet bowl. Any other colour may not be as versatile as white, according to professional toilet bowl installers who have done several toilet bowl installation projects.

 6. Looking for the wrong trap design for drainage

As mentioned in our toilet buying guide, every homeowner should know the type of drainage pipes they have in their bathrooms – this can either be an s-trap or a p-trap.

7. Getting a toilet bowl with the wrong measurements

It is important to make sure that you get the right measurements of not only your new toilet bowl, but also the area where it’s going to be installed.
