I run a fitness center where we help people with various fitness needs. I am proud of the work we have been doing because we run programs that are targeted at different people. Some are for youths, some for middle-aged people and we even have some fitness programs for seniors.

Recently, there has arisen the need to remodel one of the bathrooms. As a fitness center, we cannot afford to have a run down bathroom. I want to do a serious overhaul and one of the things that I am looking forward to replacing is the toilet. Just imagine sweating your heart out on the treadmill only to find the john all yuck and unpleasant. That is something that I do not want any of our clients to experience.Thus, I am looking for a new toilet for the replacement.

Why is toilet replacement important?

I also think that it is good practice to change the toilet after several years of use. Ok, I know some are sold with limited lifetime warranty, but still, you cannot use just one toile forever. The older a toilet gets, the more it loses its original color. It also becomes harder to keep clean, which means that it harbors more bacteria and germs. Honestly, if I find my toilet, even at home, starting to change color permanently, I know it is time to replace it.

One other reason that I love to keep looking at the toilets market is the fact that with the passage of time, better toilets come! I mean, decades ago, a toilet would have a flow rate of 3.0 gallons per minute. Today, you can even have a toilet that does 2.0 gallons per flush.

Low flow rate saves water

While we are still talking about the flow rate of toilets, well, you also need to know that the newer toilets come with better flushing mechanisms. Just imagine, today, you can have a toilet that comes with dual flush technology. This is a true water saver. When you take a pee, there is no reason why you should spend as much water to flush as you would when you take a poop. When you need a toilet for a fitness center, or any other facility that is used by many people, you can imagine the amount of water that is going to be spent.

As you can see, there are many reasons why changing a toilet to a better and more advanced one is a better idea most of the time. New toilets are easier to clean. As time progresses, you will also find that many toilets come with better style, shape and fixtures.

Do not hesitate to replace your toilet after using it for several years. However, before you choose any one of the new designs, you should read a few reviews on the best toilet to buy. That way, you will know that you are not buying one blindly.

Here are two toilets that I am considering buying for our fitness center:

American Standard 2889216.020

American Standard 2889216.020

When I saw this toilet for the first time, I was surprised that a toilet can look this good. The nicely rounded elongated front just looks so stylish. This two-piece toilet looks really nice, just the kind of transformation that you need for your home. The water consumption, or should we say economy, is incredible at 1.6 gallons per minute. The surface of the toilet has been designed with EvaClean antimicrobial technology that prevents the growth of bacteria.

Pros

  • Antimicrobial surface prevents the growth of bacteria
  • Speed Connect technology reduces installation time by 30%
  • Dual flush system saves water
  • Limited warranty of 24 months

Cons

  • A bit heavy for lifting when installing

This is the best bidet toilet combo. This toilet was manufactured for both its looks as well as its functionality. The sleek design is going to enhance the looks of any bathroom where it is installed. It is a dual flush toilet, so you can control how much water you use after doing your business in the toilet. The way this toilet has been designed ensures you have an easy time keeping it clean all the time.

Pros

  • Very nice dual-flush system
  • Installs easily even for a beginner
  • It has a night light so you do not need to switch on main lights
  • Self cleaning technology

Cons

  • We wish it was an auto-flush toilet
