A good bathroom should not only have efficient lighting and interior décor, but also a reliable toilet. At Coloma country inn, we have remodeled our bathrooms by installing the newest toilets from the top brands in the market. We take into account the need to conserve water, and therefore we also installed the WaterSense certified toilets. These are low-flow toilets that use 1.28 gallons of water per flush.
Our refurbishing work includes high-quality finishing materials. The bathroom walls and floors are impressive, and the types of toilets compliments with the entire bathroom fixtures. Even the countertops match with the flooring finish and the lighting scheme. We installed various toilet designs including the popular versions found in many clubs and hotels. The curved models are easy to clean, while the wall hung versions give the bathrooms an additional appeal.
Looking for a reliable toilet can be a daunting task given the many brands available in the market today. We used various methods to determine what to buy and what not to buy. It was not an easy job, but we eventually landed on the best brands based on various considerations. It is worth noting that the price is not the core determinant of quality. First, check the features you need, and then consider the price.
Therefore, here are the things we considered before buying the toilets;
We were concerned about the usage of water in our facility, and therefore the choice of low flow toilets was geared towards conserving water. Already the traditional toilets have been replaced with modern models to reduce the wastage of water. Some of the new toilets use 1.2 gallons of water per flush but provide a powerful flush that leaves the bowl as clean as a brand new. In other words, we searched for WaterSense certified toilets. These are the best toilets for minimal water usage.
An ideal toilet should be able to flush all the waste once and leave the toilet bowl as clean as possible. We have both pressure-assist and gravity toilets because there are areas where people tends to use toilets more frequently. For instance, toilets serving near the halls should have pressure-assist toilets so that the waste is flushed completely with just a single flush. In the hotel rooms, the gravity toilets can be used appropriately because there are fewer people to use the toilets.
Ease of cleaning
We use the best detergents and disinfectants to keep our bathrooms clean. However, this did not prevent us from selecting toilets with a high quality finish that is easy to clean. One-piece toilets are the easiest to clean, though they are more costly than the other models. The toilets don’t stain even when used frequently. However, they are heavier than the other models because the tank and toilet bowl are separate. But we were ready to hire a professional plumber to handle the installation task.
The standard toilet height ranges from 15 to 16 inches, and it is designed for a normal human height. Any person taller than 17 inches may not be comfortable when using a 15-inch toilet. Also, the disabled people may not be able to use the toilets contentedly. At Coloma country inn, we have taken into account all the users. Whether you are disabled or taller than the normal height, we have toilets that will suit your needs fully. Our toilets are perfect and you will never feel any kind of some backache after a toilet session.
Toilet bowl size
Comfort in the bathroom is very important, and that is why we chose the best toilet bowls. People have different sizes and shapes, and therefore the elongated bowls are the most common in our remodeled bathrooms. This is because they offer more comfort to the users compared to the rounded toilet bowls. Our bathrooms are big enough to accommodate the 2-inch elongated bowls and allow ease of opening and closing of the door.
For water conservation purposes, we have installed dual flush toilets in almost all the bathrooms. They have controls or buttons for flushing either liquid or solid wastes. For instance, every button is rated based on gallons of water per flush (gpf). The liquid waste uses a 0.8 gpf, while solid waste uses a 1.6 gpf. This means that when flushing liquid waste, less water is required than when flushing solid waste. Therefore, there is a sense of water conservation in every flush.
When we were looking for toilets to install in the refurbished bathrooms, we did not rely entirely on price. This is because there are new brands with top notch toilets that come at reduced price compared to those old brands. The established brands have high-end toilet models but at higher prices. However, the important thing is to get the best toilet model with the right features you want.
