5 Steps to Buying a New Toilet

5 Steps to Buying a New Toilet

Buying a new toilet is a lot like buying anything else. To start, you’ll decide what kind of product you’d like to buy. Then, you’ll create a budget and find a dealer/installer. Following these steps can help ensure you’ll find the right toilet for your needs. See below for a more in-depth description of each step.

1. Research New Toilets

There are many types of toilets, from builder-grade toilets to luxury toilets with a variety of features. Before you can purchase the right toilet for you, it’s important to familiarize yourself with the available options.

Don’t assume that you want the most basic type of toilet simply because that’s the type you’ve always had. Instead, find out what else is available. Explore all the possibilities. Knowing the choices will help you find the right kind of toilet for you. Some examples of toilet types include:

  • Dual flush
  • Elongated
  • Round
  • Standard height
  • Ultra-low flow
  • Pressure assisted

2. Make a List of Must-Haves

Make a list of the types of toilets that most interest you, and the features you’d like to see in your toilet. When making a list of must-haves, it’s important to consider the answer to the following questions:

  • Is it important to me to have an eco-friendly toilet?
  • Do I want to feel pampered when using my toilet?
  • Do I have a hard time standing up after using the toilet?
  • Is my current toilet comfortable? Why or why not?

Answers to these questions and others like them can help you decide which kind of toilet is right for you. Want help making a decision? Call ToiletKing to speak with one of our professionals.

3. Create a Budget

Know how much you can afford to spend on your new toilet. At the same time, find out how much you can expect to spend on toilet models you like. Talk to someone at ToiletKing about this. This will give you an idea of how much is a realistic amount to spend on your new toilet, even if you haven’t yet committed to one type of toilet.

4. Find the Right Supplier and Installer

Any time you’re buying a fixture for your home, it’s important to find the right supplier and installer. A reputable toilet supplier and installer can be trusted to sell you a toilet that’s good quality and durable.

Check references. Look for a supplier that can produce a list of happy clients that will vouch for their services. Consider how long the company has been in business before hiring.

5. Make Your Purchase

Once you’ve picked the right toilet and the right supplier for your project, make your purchase. Keep any documentation about your new toilet, so you can take advantage of the warranty if something should go wrong.
