New Toilet Installation | Repair | Replacement
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, a family of four typically uses up to 400 gallons of water a day, with 70 percent of this attributed to an indoor use of water. The average American flushes a toilet five times a day. In older homes, with 3.2 gallon toilets, a family of four could use more than 20,000 gallons of water annually just flushing a toilet. For that reason, many municipalities are amending codes to require installation of a 1.28 gallon toilet for new construction or remodels. If you have a plumbing project that requires installation of a new toilet, the licensed and insured plumbing professionals at Public Service Plumbers can help ensure that you comply with all building codes.

Water Closets: Kinds of Toilet Technology
In general, there are three kinds of toilet flush technology currently in use: siphoning, wash-down, and power-assisted flush. In siphoning toilets, water flows to the rim and from a jet located near the bottom of the bowel. Wash-down toilets use a valve that opens when flushed to allow a flood of water to enter the bowel from under the rim of the toilet. Power-assisted toilets utilize water and compressed air to create a powerful thrust of water to clear waste out of the bowel. In each kind of toilet, however, consideration must be given to the amount of water used.
The new Texas HET Law phasing in 1.28 gallons per flush on toilets went into effect in 2014. Accordingly, if you want to remodel your bathroom or install a new toilet, you’ll need to consider different kinds of water closets and what works best for your family.
Which Toilet Makes Sense for Your Home
Each of these toilets has their advantages and drawbacks – siphoning typically uses a lot of water and may sometimes require two flushes; wash-down toilets often stain and require more than one flush; and power-flush toilets can be loud. On the other hand, siphoning toilets are usually very clean and easy to maintain, while power-flush toilets use a gallon or less of water per flush.
