Choosing the Type of Toilet You Need

  • Two Piece Toilet

Toilet Height

Toilet height is measured from the floor to the top of the seat. Most often, toilet falls somewhere between 15 in. and 19 in, with standard toilets coming in under 17 in. However, chair height toilets or Comfort Height toilets, measure 17 in. or more. The rule of thumb is, have a seat and see what works best for you.

  • Gravity Flush System

    Gravity flush toilets uses the water weight to generate flushing pressure.

    • Water pressure forces everything from the tank into the bowl and through the S-shaped trapway
    • Natural siphoning action completes the flush
    • Quieter and requires less maintenance than a pressure-assisted flushing system

  • Pressure Assist Toilets

    Pressure Assisted System


    Pressurized air forces water into the bowl when flushed, reducing the chances for clogs, while using less water. This method is used mostly in commercial applications but increasingly in homes as well.

Selecting the Right Seat

Most toilets come in separate pieces and don't include the seat. Choose a seat that complements the toilet colour and bathroom décor. Think about the following items when choosing your seat:

  • The seat shape depends on the type of bowl — round or elongated
  • Seats are available in real oak, cherry, moulded wood composition, cushioned vinyl, plastic or polypropylene 
  • Some seats are contoured for more comfortable seating
  • Heated seats and seats with bidet add-ons offer even more comfort
