We’ve all been there. You go to flush after using the toilet, and nothing happens. The water either just sits in the bowl, or it starts to go down but never fully flushes. We’ve found that the common cause of the issue isn’t faulty piping or bad water pressure—the problem lies with the toilet itself. We’re speaking of course about the dreaded low flow toilets that are increasingly common on today’s market.
In some ways, low flow toilets are great; they can save you tons of money each month on your water bills. However, that’s assuming they work as they should. Low flow toilets often require more than one flush to get all of the waste down the drain. It goes without saying that after a couple of flushes, the low flow toilet ends up wasting more water than a traditional commode.
In addition to wasting water, nobody wants to stand around and try to flush their toilet for minutes on end. That’s a bit embarrassing, and it just wastes time. Thankfully, there’s a solution! Pressure assisted toilets are helping folks all over the country save money on their water bill while improving the flush power of a standard unit. Continue reading to learn more about pressure assisted toilet installation.
How it works
With a traditional or low flow toilet, gravity is the only force sucking the water from the tank down into the bowl after you press the lever. But with a pressure assisted toilet, you get the added power of compressed air that forces your waste down the drain. Not only does that ensure your toilet fully flushes, but it also saves money on your utility bill because it doesn’t require as much water to flush. It’s a win-win scenario!
For a while, the high cost of pressure assisted toilets was the main thing holding people back from installing them in their homes. But recently, the cost to install them has dropped dramatically. What used to cost up to thousands of dollars can now be purchased for only a few hundred dollars more than a low flow toilet. While it may hurt to pay that much more up front, consider how much money you’ll save each year on your water bills. Ultimately, a pressure assisted toilet pays for itself over the course of a few years.
If you have a standard toilet and you’re tired of spending an arm and a leg on your water bill, or if you have a low flow toilet and you’re tired of flushing two or three times per use, give Affordable Rooter a call.
