Water usage and costs can add up to considerable expense, especially for households using inefficient or outdated fixtures.

Creating an environmentally friendly household is an important concern for many people, and when it comes to water conservation, saving money is a concern for an even greater number of homeowners.
Low-flow fixtures are designed to operate with less water, offering a convenient way to lower your water and sewer bill, and create an environmentally friendly household.
Prior to the 1950s, toilets used 7 gallons or more to flush; by the 1980s, toilets were using 3.5 gallons. Today’s toilet uses no more than 1.6 gallons, less than half of a 1980s toilet. Toilets have undergone a major redesign, both in the appearance, and the technology of the flush. One of the most promising of the new design’s, is the dual flush toilet, which delivers a full flush for solid waste, and a reduced flush for liquid waste. In addition, some models deliver a quieter flush. In the past, consumer complaints of inefficient flushes with low flow toilets have led to new design features, enabling today’s toilets to flush efficiently with less water.
Modern toilets require more parts enabling them to create an increase of water movement within the bowl for an effective flush. This also provides a cleaner flush, though more parts to replace in time. Before you shop for a new toilet, consider using a Benjamin Franklin plumber in Fort Worth.
Unfortunately, toilets are not all created equal in quality and reliability. Our plumbers can assist you in toilet selection, and ensure you receive a reliable toilet, and a professional installation.
Toilet installation may seem straightforward, but that is not always the case. If planning a DIY installation, you will need to ensure the toilet fits in the space, and installs correctly with the outlet pipe. Older homes may have a different measurement of the space between the outlet pipe and the wall, than today’s standard 12 inches. A Benjamin Franklin plumber in Fort Worth can provide the worry-free installation you need. Just give us a call to schedule service, and we will take care of it for you with professional results.
Today’s toilets offer the option of convenient features from the automatic seat, and automatic flush, to motion sensor flushes to name a few. One such feature is the automatic seat, also called a soft close toilet seat, available as a stand-alone seat for DIY installation, or available from the factory as toilet feature. A soft-close seat automatically operates the lid, and eliminates the noise and the risk of a broken bowl from a dropped toilet seat.
Other options include a built in bidet/cleaning system; toilets with built in sensors that raise the lid when it senses your approach; seat warmers are a bonus for cold winter days; touch-flush or motion sensor flush and other handy features are available.
