Toilet Buying Guide

You probably wouldn’t notice it, but toilet bowls are considered the most commonly used bathroom fixture. As such, it is important to carefully consider some points before getting a toilet bowl installation done. Surely, you wouldn’t want your toilet bowl to break just a few days after installation.

Thinking of installing a new toilet bowl or replacing an old one? Let’s guide you through some important factors to consider when choosing a toilet bowl for your bathroom.

1. Choose Between a Wall-Mounted Toilet vs Floor-Mounted Toilet

Before delving straight to a bathroom renovation, you need to first decide whether you want your toilet pipes to be connected through the wall or through the floor. Doing so will greatly affect whether you need to install a wall-mounted toilet or a floor-mounted toilet.

2. Decide Whether You Need an S-Trap or P-Trap Toilet Pipe

As mentioned earlier, the type of plumbing system that you have will eventually determine the features of the toilet bowl you’re going to install. When choosing a toilet bowl, it is important to take note of whether it will require a p-trap pipe or an s-trap pipe. P-trap toilets are connected through the wall while S-trap toilets are connected through the floor. As such, the S-trap pipe is not suitable for wall-mounted toilets.

3. Determine Whether a 1-Piece Toilet or a 2-Piece Toilet is More Suitable

Both 1-piece toilet bowls and 2-piece toilet bowls are widely used in Singapore. While a certain type of household may gravitate more towards having a 1-piece toilet bowl installed, choosing between the two still mainly depend on an individual’s preferences. However, expect a difference in toilet bowl price in Singapore when deciding which type of toilet bowl to get. 1-piece toilet bowls provide a perfect combination of a bowl and a tank. Their sleek appearance makes them an attractive option for residential owners. On the other hand, 2-piece toilet bowls are considered a more budget-friendly fixture as you can mix and match the tank and the bowl. However, they are much harder to clean compared to a 1-piece toilet bowl.

4. Look Into The Design Specifications

Modern toilet manufacturing brands are offering toilet bowls in different styles. As users have different needs when it comes to toilet bowl preferences, brands nowadays are making sure that they cater to a wide range of customers. Choose a design that is both ergonomically friendly and one that will complement your bathroom interiors – even the positioning of the toilet flush matters when ensuring that you buy the most suitable toilet bowl to suit your needs. Can’t find a certain toilet bowl? Watch out for occasional toilet bowl promotion in Singapore for any discounts on selected designs.

5. Choose a Toilet Bowl Operational Style

Modern toilets are equipped with very different functions compared to “traditional” toilet bowls. Some toilets are designed to flush waste by employing a type of gravity flushing mechanism, while some toilets use a kind of vacuum assist flushing. Additionally, there are also some toilet bowl brands carrying toilets that are equipped with pressure-assist flushing mechanisms. Essentially, it is the flushing mechanism that differentiates various types of toilet.

6. All Things Considered, Make Sure To Get The Right Measurements

Last and definitely not the least, always ensure that your toilet bowl installer conducts a thorough inspection of your bathroom to ensure that the correct measurements are taken. These measurements will play an important part when choosing a toilet bowl. Even toilet seat height matters when it comes to buying a toilet bowl. A standard toilet bowl is 43cm in height, which is what most people deem comfortable. However, you can also find toilets between 38 to 71cm in height.

Here are some things you should take note of when getting the right measurements for your toilet bowl installation:

a. The size of the toilet bowl itself can be 4, 6, 8, or 10 inches.

b. The size of the toilet bowl is determined by the distance between the wall and the 4-inch drainage pipe.

c. It is necessary to remove the toilet bowl to get accurate measurements for the new installation.
