Round front bowls are smaller front to back and usually |cheaper than their elongated counterparts. They may be utilised in smaller bathrooms, where space and price could possibly be an issue.

New Toilet Terms

Trap way - The trap way often is the snake-like tubing at the edges of the toilet that  water flushes through. The better designed and bigger the trap way, the less chance there exists for clogs. A totally glazed trap way also helps prevent clogging by providing a smoother passageway.

Skirted - Enclosing the trap way using a smooth covering, with easy cleaning and an elegant look. Also known as a concealed trap.

Elongated Bowl - The bowl has an oval shape and extended front rim to deliver maximum comfort, and additional style.

Round Bowl - A more traditional bowl, the round design is good for bathrooms with restricted space.

Flush Valve - Positioned at the middle of your tank, this valve is activated by the toilet's flush handle and releases the water held in your tank. A bigger flush valve raises the water flow rate through the toilet.

Gravity Flush Systems - This technique utilizes nothing more than water weight to come up with flushing pressure. Now-tested design is quiet, simple, and involves less upkeep than other more complex flushing systems.

Pressure Assisted Flush System - A pressurized air tank assists the toilet's flushing process. This technique could be noisy and much more costly.

 

 

 

 

Flushing

All toilets today use a maximum 1.6 gallons per flush. Manufacturers have redesigned the flushing mechanisms, bowls, and trap ways to make sure a suitable flush. This has led to the most current type of toilet design - the pressure assisted toilet. Typical toilets use an easy gravity flush. Pressure assisted toilets use the water pressure from the plumbing system to produce a more forceful flush.
