And, that’s a good thing. It means you can be comfortable, energy-efficient, and stylish, even in your bathroom.
That said, to ensure you’re making the right choice for yourself and your space, it’s important to understand the options and the pros and cons tied to those decisions. Start here with our comprehensive toilet buying guide.

Key Features and Differences to Look for in a New Toilet
Now that you have the shape and style down, consider the features offered by today’s top performers. The good news is that there is a good deal of flexibility in these areas.
How Strong Is the Flush?
How Much Water Does It Use?
How they flush also matters. Pressure-assisted toilets are a bit more elevated in style and tend to be a common option in commercial buildings because they conserve water and are very efficient. Here, there is a mechanism within the tank that helps force a stream of water out whenever someone flushes.
Though harder to install, they tend to be a better option for those trying to be more environmentally friendly. Gravity toilets are the most common form. When you flush them, gravity pulls the water down from the tank. They work just fine, but take more water to get the results desired.
Some toilets, you’ll notice, are listed as water-efficient. The more efficient models can reduce water costs significantly. An efficient model should use only 1.28 gallons of water per flush.
How Easy Is It to Clean?
ADA Compliance Options?
Quiet Close Features May Be a Good Idea?
Also, consider whether the toilet is a quiet close. That means that the toilet lid will close at a slower rate, preventing anyone from slamming it. That’s a good idea for areas where noise is a concern.

We we’re impress with Choate’s responsiveness to our needs, Choate’s was one of two companies opened on Saturday and Sunday for HVAC repair. Juan the customer service rep., was friendly and honest about pricing. Second Mike our technician was timely, we were given a window from 1-6pm for the next day, but Mike showed up exactly at 1pm, he was willing to help, very friendly and knowledgeable on the repair. As a result of his friendliness we decided to sign up for the Choate’s family plan (a regular service offered for a monthly fee of $30) to save money and Mike made the repairs and we are grateful, and Choate’s is now our only call for services, and we recommend Choate’s for area’s families as well.James H., Memphis
