When it came time to remodel her bathroom, homeowner Carrie Tamminga did her homework. Tamminga wanted a toilet that helped conserve water.
Flush after flush, your toilet goes through gallons of water each day. That puts stress on rubber seals, copper pipes, and porcelain bowl. While toilets have a long lifespan, you'll eventually have to swap yours out for a new one.
Homeowners can choose between a one or two piece toilet, round or elongated bowl, different heights, and many additional features.
Although an experience do-it-yourselfer may be able to install a new toilet, most homeowners should hire a licensed plumber.
A poor installation job can cause leaks under the flooring.
