Plumbing 101: One-Piece versus Two-Piece Toilets

If you’re in the market for a new toilet in your Colorado home, you may have come across the question of whether you want to purchase a one-piece or two-piece toilet.  As with any purchasing decision, it is good to be familiar with the differences between the two toilet styles before you make a final choice.

The two-piece toilet model is the more common of the two styles.  Its tank is separate from the bowl, and the two are bolted together.  The one-piece model integrates the tank with the bowl, making it look more sleek and modern.

Beyond the aesthetics, there is no noteworthy functional difference between the two tanks.  According to this Seattle Times article, there is no water savings with one style or the other.  Aside from visual differences, one-piece toilets are more expensive to manufacture, but they are easier to clean.  Beyond that, you simply have to choose which style of toilet best suits your home’s design.

If you have more questions about choosing a new toilet for your Colorado home, feel free to schedule an appointment at one of Rampart Supply’s showrooms by calling 866-315-9534.  We’d love to help you find the perfect model for your home!
