Our center is almost up and running. However, a few things are holding us up. While the kitchen is all done, we have a small delay with the bathrooms, with the installation of the toilets. However, we are planning to make this happen as soon as I can get the required upflush toilets. Thus, I am in the market looking for one, as it were.
If this is the first time that you, like me, are hearing about the upflush toilet for the first time, you could be having a hard time trying to wrap your head around it. What does it mean? Well, I have done some research and I have decided this is the type of toilet that I am going to buy for all bathrooms at the center.
Just as the name suggests, this is an up flushing toilet. What this means is that it flushes the waste upwards rather than upwards. Actually, there are so many benefits of using this toilet. Do not be surprised if you find this toilet being referred to as a macerating toilet. It is just another fancy name for an upflushing toilet.
Would you buy such a toilet? Well, first, see the benefits below:
You do not have to dig up your bathroom floor
The regular down-flushing toilets are best installed when you haven’t done the floor yet. This is because you may have to break a number of floor tiles so that you install the toilet correctly. With the best upflush toilet, it does not have to be that way at all. You can install this toilet right on the floor without requiring to tamper with anything.
Easy to maintain hygiene
This is a self-cleaning toilet. What this means is that every time that you flush the toilet, it clears everything in the toilet bowl, leaving it clean. Just because it is an upflush toilet does not mean that there are any complexities in getting the waste to go up. It is a very hygienic toilet.
Fast and easy installation
Since you do not have to break the floor or the walls in your bathroom, you will do a fast installation job. Tell you what, if you are handy with your hands, and can handle a couple of tools, you do not even need a professional to help you with this toilet. You can do it alone!
Good for low-pressure water lines
This is a good toilet for people whose main water lines have low-pressure. Believe it or not, it is also a good toilet for low quantity of water.
These are only a few benefits of installing an upflush toilet at home. There are more, but now, I would like to bring you a couple of reviews of upflush toilets that I am planning to buy for our home.
Standard SaniPLUS Upflush Toilet
This one takes the top spot for many lists of upflush toilets. Looking at it keenly, it is quite easy for you to see why. This toilet has many stunning features. One of them is that it has enough pressure to pump fifteen feet upwards. In the process of the pumping, it breaks up the waste into small pieces that will be easily drained out through the 1.5-inch diameter drainpipe. This toilet is easy to install. You do not need to break the floor to get to the water pipes. It is an on-the-floor toilet installation toilet.
- Simple to install
- Built to last a long time
- Looks good with the elongated bowl
- Sold with good warranty
- It is an expensive toilet
Liberty Pumps Ascent 2 Upflush Toilet
Just as with the Standard SaniPLUS toilet, the Liberty Pumps Ascent 2 upflushing toilet has a very effective macerating pump. It is able to chop the waste into small pieces such that when the waste meets water, it turns into a soft sludge that is so easy to dispose. This is an economical toilet because it can cleanly flush number 2 at 1.28 gallons per flush. That is incredible! You can have the best toilet and save on water at the same time. While this is not a space saver like the best wall hung toilet (check it out!), it still works quite well, even for small apartment bathrooms.
- Saves on water a lot
- Fast maceration of waste
- Easy installation job on the toilet even for people with no skills
- With such a toilet, you can set up a bathroom anywhere
- It is a bit noisy
