Where should you start your Spring cleaning? In the bathroom! According to experts at Mansfield Plumbing, replacing an old, inefficient toilet with a newer, more efficient toilet is one of the best investments homeowners can make this Spring.
“Imagine the time and effort it takes to keep an older toilet clean,” suggests Adriana Miller, product manager with Mansfield Plumbing. “That tedious chore goes away when adding a newer toilet to the home that is designed for easy cleaning. In addition, older toilets use a great deal of water, so it’s like flushing away your cash as you pay for escalating water bills.”
Miller recommends homeowners consider the clean and green rimless bowl design of the CascadeTM high efficiency toilet (HET). The rimless bowl reduces germs and bacteria that typically hide in difficult-to-access rim areas of the bowl, so they may get left behind during a routine cleaning. With a rimless bowl design, that problem is eliminated.
“Cleaning is so much simpler with the Cascade toilet because a strong swirling action cleans the bowl with every flush,” says Miller. “The unique rimless bowl design makes it easier and faster to clean. And, thanks to the bowl’s 800 grams MaP flush rating, clogs of masses are virtually eliminated, so that the toilet needs less maintenance overall.”
Available in either a round front bowl or elongated SmartHeightTM bowl design, the Cascade HET uses just 1.28 gallons per flush (Gpf), saving 20 percent more water than older 1.6 Gpf toilets. Thanks to its unique design, the Cascade is WaterSense® approved to meet EPA standards for water efficiency in the home. Toilets earning the WaterSense label have been certified to be at least 20 percent more efficient without sacrificing performance.
