Does your toilet need repair or is it time to replace it? Although a toilet is not the most glamorous fixture in a house, it certainly is one of the most important and regularly used plumbing fixtures. All it takes is a day or two without a working toilet to fully appreciate the brilliance of this simple device.

And brilliant it is. Invented by Thomas Crapper in the 19th century, the toilet is a relatively simple but ingenious contraption that operates as an interface between a home’s water supply and waste system to cleanly and safely eliminate waste. You can see this brilliance in action in How a Toilet Works & Toilet Plumbing Diagrams.
