Kelson Carter | Prince of PlumbingAre you looking for the best flush money can buy? The Prince of Plumbing, Kelson Carter of Carter’s My Plumber offers advice for buying a toilet.

Let’s face it.. a lot of work and reading gets done on the throne! You can laugh about it all you want, but in reality the household toilet is a real place to think. And, since we spend so much time using this special device, it makes sense to invest wisely when purchasing a new toilet. We consulted with the “Prince of Plumbing,” Kelson Carter of Carter’s My Plumber for expert advice for making this purchase.

Kelson has earned the title “Prince of Plumbing,” by being a 3rd Generation Plumber, Licensed Plumber, and Licensed Plumbing Contractor. When it comes to plumbing, he’s the Prince and he knows his stuff.

1. Flush power

According to the Prince of Plumbing, the flush force is the most important mechanism of the toilet. With new government regulations, the modern toilet is now a 1.6 gallon per flush function. This means less volume for gravity to work and make the contents go down. It’s important to have a higher flush force or power to make sure residue doesn’t build-up in the bowl, which requires frequent cleaning.

Different Flush Powers:
Double Cyclone Flushing system
Tornado FlushToilet_Flush
Siphonic Jet action dual flush
Gravity Flush Toilets

2. Size Matters

Kelson says 9 out of 10 of his customers prefer “comfort” height, elongated bowl toilets. That’s right.. the height of a toilet and the size of the bowl makes a huge difference when it comes to comfort. Taller people prefer a higher standing toilet. Standard height toilets put more burden on the knee hinge joint. Comfort Height toilets make it easier to be seated, and to get up with less stress on the knees. When it comes to the bowl, the options are round or elongated. Most people in general, prefer a wider or longer bowl to avoid any mess. It’s a matter of preference, and it’s an important decision considering toilets last 10-15 years.

Standard height (15″) toilets are lower to the ground
Comfort Height toilets are 17-19 inches
Elongated toilet bowls measure up to 31″ from the wall
Round front fixtures max out at 28″

3. Style is King

Toilet style is “king” according to the Prince of Plumbing! One piece technology is more stylish than the standard two piece toilet. One piece toilets are more sleek, and lower in tank size to save wall space. They have a sleek design and much easier to clean. A 2-piece toilet will need the extra care for leaks once the rubber gasket that seal the tank.

one piece toiletOne Piece Advantage:
Style – looks better
No worry of water leak out of tank flooding the floor
Easy to clean – more hygienic

Two Piece Advantage:
Tank and bowl can be installed separately – less bulk
Tank and bowl can be replaced individually
Cheaper than the one-piece toilet
