Toilet Buying Guide

  • Toilets are usually made of porcelain or china.
  • The size of your room will affect your choice when choosing a toilet. For example, if you are buying for a cloakroom bathroom, you’ll need a more compact type of toilet. However if you have a more spacious bathroom, you have many options available to you.
  • Toilets use a considerable amount of water, so it’s worth doing a little research or asking advice on water saving options.
  • Make sure to check when buying a toilet that you have everything you need, as toilet seats and cisterns may need to be purchased separately. An advisor will be able to help you with any questions you may have.

Types of Toilets:

  • Close Coupled – with this type of toilet, the cistern sits directly on top of the pan which is fixed to the floor, with the cistern being attached to the wall.
  • Wall Hung – These toilets are suspended from the wall, via a metal frame. The cistern is concealed behind a panel.
  • Low Level – consists of a floor mounted pan connected to a low level cistern by a short flush pipe.
  • High Level – consists of a floor mounted pan connected to a high mounted cistern by a long flush pipe. The flush is operated by a pull chain.
  • Back-To-Wall – the cistern is concealed within the unit or wall. The pan is floor mounted. These toilets are perfect for fitted furniture.
