We are planning to remodel our bathroom ourselves and want to replace the blue toliet with a white toliet(house was built in the 70’s). The only toliets sold in the U.S. are water-saver toliets and I don’t want to deal with them. Does anyone know where I could find a non water-saver toliet? There isn’t anything wrong with my current toliet other than it is blue. Now don’t laugh, I had even called numerous bathtub refinishing places to see if they would refinish a toliet. I don’t think the new toliets really save water when they have to be flushed a couple of times when used. Thanks for your help.
If your remodelling project includes Building Permits and Inspections — as it should to protect the resale value of your home — then an Inspector will not approve a new toilet that is more than 1.6gpf.
For example, suppose you went to Canada and bought a 3.5gpf toilet, or bought a commecial toilet. The inspector would not sign-off on your final inspection and a lender won’t lend to your buyer.
