|The average size toilet is often difficult
for a child under the age of six to use.
A number of plumbing manufacturers are now
making toilets for toddlers that can be installed
in day care centers, kindergartens, and public
institutions such as museums and zoos that
are frequently visited by families with small
children. Many parents are also installing
these toilets at home.
Toddler toilets eliminate the hassle of using
a removable potty seat on a regular toilet.
These two piece toilets usually have a 10
inch high bowl. Most toddler toilets feature
a 1.6 gallon (6 liter) flush, which meets
federal water conservation standards. Some
models even have a tank cover locking device
as a safety precaution. These toddler toilets
can be difficult to find in bathroom showrooms,
so they may have to be specially ordered
from catalogs or by going online.
Because toddler toilets use a standar 10
to 12 inch rough in, these toilets can easily
be replaced with a regular adult sized toilet
when the child is old enough to use one
