As you plan your bathroom renovation project, you might be stuck choosing between a standard toilet and a tankless one. Tankless toilets can really boost your bathroom’s visual appeal by giving it a more sophisticated look, but the aesthetics are just one of several benefits. If you’re wondering if a tankless toilet is what your home needs, let our team at DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen of Wilmington share some insight.
How Tankless Toilets Work
A typical toilet has the tank sitting above the bowl to allow gravity to draw down the water when flushing the toilet. The tank then gets re-filled with water for the next flush. A tankless toilet doesn’t need a tank because it doesn’t need to store water. It’s hooked into your home’s plumbing system and flushes by either letting water enter the bowl at high pressure, directly from the plumbing pipes, or using an electric pump in the toilet bowl. The latter set-up provides additional pressure when flushing the toilet, and residential tankless toilets are equipped with this because the plumbing system usually lacks the pressure needed to flush a toilet.
Why Tankless Toilets Are More Beneficial
1. Less water is used. Most toilets use no more than 1.6 gallons per flush, but tankless models use even less.Some models with a dual-flush design use as little as 1.28 gallons per flush.
2. They’re great for small spaces.This is a big benefit if you don’t have a lot of space to work with for your bathroom remodeling project. Since tankless toilets are mounted on the wall, they’re a great space-saving solution for smaller bathrooms. You can also have them installed at any height for custom comfort!
3. They offer modern design and customization options. Since tankless toilets feature a more streamlined design compared to their traditional counterparts, it’s an easy way to update your bathroom. Many different customization options are available, such as a built-in bidet, a heated seat and even a nightlight.
