Start Spring Cleaning in the Bathroom

(HIT) – Spring cleaning should start 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.

With less than one percent of water on earth available for human use, water is limited in supply and needs to be protected and used as efficiently as possible.* Green products, like the Cascade toilet, help promote water conservation. By selecting a 1.28 Gpf toilet a homeowner is making a decision to use 20 percent less water than the current federal standard of 1.6 Gpf.

With MagnaFlush high performance flushing technology and a three-inch flush valve for high volume flow rate for a quick and quiet flush, the Cascade HET has a universal design that complements any bathroom décor.
