Why Your Builder Supplied Toilet Sucks & How You can Replace it with Something Nice without Breaking the Bank

Friday, March 13, 2015 , Posted by Bradhaw Plumbing

Whether you are building a home or buying one, there are a number of features and fixtures that people look at when making a purchase decision. One that often gets overlooked is the importance of having a high quality toilet for all the bathrooms in your home.

The truth is that the standard builder supplied toilets are basic models. They are low quality, cheap, and inefficient compared to other toilet options on the market. This is also why they only cost about $150.

However, for as low as $400, you could invest in a high quality toilet for your home that provides you with all the benefits you expect.

The benefits of investing in a better toilet include:

  • You can get a toilet that looks better and fits more with your bathroom design scheme
  • Higher quality toilets are designed to be more comfortable and provide you with better support
  • Higher quality toilers are water efficient, help to converse water and protect the environment, something that is increasingly important to homeowners.
  • Higher quality toilets will stand the test of time and are longer lasting than basic builder grade toilets.
  • A high quality toilet can help you save money by using less water. They are also less prone to developing issues that will cost your money in repairs and replacements over time.

Considering how much use they get, investing in a high quality toilet is worth the addition money. Plus, you will also have a variety of models and designs to choose from, allowing you to choose the perfect toilet option for your bathroom.
