Selecting a Toilet for New Construction

There are many factors to consider when it comes to specifying toilets for your new construction project, so how do you know which to choose? Flush Rate, shape, size, and sustainability all play a key part in specifying the most efficient and affordable products. As experts in the plumbing field, we’ve identified a few tips and tricks to help you pick the best toilet out there.

1. Flush Rate – Save big with a lower GPF!

Ultra-high-efficiency toilets, like the Original by Niagara®, flush at just 0.8 GPF – using up to 70% less water than leading competitors. These fixtures produce utility and water bills up to 60% lower than traditional toilets, leading to greater property value and cash flow.

2. Powerful Performance

Everyone knows “Low-flow” toilets have gotten a bad rap over the years, but new technology has improved performance so much that some low-flow fixtures out-perform traditional toilets! MaP testing measures the performance of toilets. For optimal flushing power, we recommend finding a toilet with a MaP score of 600g or more!

3. ADA Compliance

To design inclusively, find a toilet that meets ADA standards, or is considered EZ height. Toilets that meet these standards are good candidates for any project that incorporates universal design.

4. Warranty and Maintenance

Inefficient and old toilets are prone to clogs and leaks – especially plumbing fixtures that have traditional flappers. To minimize maintenance time and expense, find a plumbing fixture that has a lifetime warranty or go flapper-less. Your residents will be glad you did!

5. Be Green 

Less water used means more saved for the earth! Everyday ingenuity is the key to solving our global crisis, and since the toilet consumes 24%* of daily household water use, every flush that uses less water makes a difference!
