TOILET TALK

THERE IS A DIFFERENCE

That $50 special you got from “Big Box” isn’t that special if you have to buy a plunger with it.  It really doesn’t matter how nice it looks if it doesn’t work.

 

HOW IT WORKS

The tank on the back drops water into the bowl and forces it through a trap that is behind the bowl built into the toilet.  If this trap is small then solid waste will have a difficult time getting past.  If the trap is larger then waste will flow without restriction.  Traps on cheap toilets can be 2” in diameter and 3-1/2” on a better flushing toilet.  In order to get more water into the bowl a better flushing toilet will have a larger diameter flush valve as well.

Conveniently enough -

The better flushing toilet uses

less water to do a complete job.

PART II

So you’re bound and determined

to prove me wrong, are you?

After you purchased and spent 4 hours

installing that “bargain” toilet here are

the accessories you will need.

The model on the left is not good for

plunging a toilet but rather

the flat surface of a sink.

The model on the right is made for a toilet,  but look further at the construction.  Notice that the handle attaches on the OUTSIDE of the plunger horn and that the end

is tapered to fit the toilet.
