Looking to replace my toilet suites

By dizzel88 - 15 September 2014 10

Hello.

Just wondering whether anyone has used Female Choice Plumbing for plumbing work and installing toilet suites? I need to replace my toilets (3 of them) and would like  someone who can replace these at a good price. Any other suggestions of companies to  do this?

What’s Your opinion?

Since the toilet is among the most used water appliance in the home it is frequently in need of repair. We prefer south jersey plumbers for any of the plumbing repair and installation. They repair, supply or install toilet based on your needs at reasonable prices.

If you don’t have the standard position outlet, that will delay things and/or cost more.
Not sure what, that is, just that my side piped toilets aren’t it.

I don’t know what you mean by “the standard position outlet” but I sit on the seat attached to the bowl.

That would be the standard position input.

“For every outlet there is an equal and opposite inlet”

I think the standard is waste pipe down into the floor, with a water tap behind it mounted on the wall, although that is less of a problem.

There are three different type of waste traps. An ‘S’ trap is the type you’re talking about, where the plumbing is connected through the floor. A ‘P’ trap has the plumbing connected through the wall behind the toilet. A ‘Skew’ trap – which sounds like Aeek is talking about, has the trap coming out the side, to connect to the plumbing in a side wall. I’ve never seen one of these in a toilet, but Caroma still make a model (just the one though!). At over $1,000 a unit, I can see how replacing the loo would end up being more expensive than normal. http://www.caroma.com.au/bathrooms/toilet-suites/profile/profile-4-skew-trap-toilet-suite

Please don’t repeat our mistake of assuming that a plumber would not be stupid enough replace a high-flush cistern with a low-flush cistern, leaving a high-flush bowl that no longer had enough water supply to flush properly.

I recently had close coupled toilets fitted with a fantastic flushing action. There are the usual two flush buttons and usually both number ones and number twos are adequately managed by the lesser flush but if a bit more is required all that has to be done is the low flush button to be held down.
I have never had any reason to use the high flush. The set up of the drain holes under the bowl rim is a lot different to the standard Fowler one and this contributes to the efficiency. These designs save a lot of water.
Try Modena in Fyshwick.

I would expect that a plumber with the business name Female Choice would fit toilets with the seats permanently locked in the down position.
