very good toilet flushes perfectly looks nice fills up with water very quickly nice white colour toilet seat closes very quietly but could be more comfortable.
never tried it if you read this you will turn into a frog ha ha !!!!!
When it turned out that a wall hung toilet I bought from the bathstore was built strangely and basically would stain with poo all the time as (stupid idea!) the waste hole was in the middle rather than the back, I had to order another within a very tight budget. It also turned out the bathstore one was 510mm so the projection was small and the Melbourne one was the only one I could find that was of a similar projection, in my budget and looks relatively decent. The toilet seat is not very classy but fortunately I have another one but for the price, the toilet is fine. The only other negative is that the weight of this is much lighter than the bathstore one and my fitter told me that the build quality on this is not as good and this one is not as solid and can not hold as much weight.
Wall hung toilets are becoming increasingly popular at the moment, and the unique ?floating? appearance that they give off is a great way to make your bathroom more original. But how do they differ from ordinary toilets? Are they practical? And will they suit your bathroom? Well, in this guide we?ll be explaining exactly what you can expect from your new wall hung loo and what to keep an eye out for when looking to buy.
These toilets look very different to the more commonly found close coupled items as they have no visible cistern and they don?t actually touch the floor either. They are mounted to the wall and are great for giving off a designer look. The cistern is concealed behind your tiling and a flush button or plate is located on the wall above the pan, leaving a much neater finish.
As the pan is ?suspended? it needs to be efficiently supported, therefore a fixing frame is inserted into the wall to hold the weight of the toilet, preventing it falling or putting stress on the wall.
In a nutshell, no they aren?t sadly. Of course if you?re a qualified plumber you should have no issues, but this is a job that is far beyond the reach of any amateur DIY enthusiasts so it may be best to get professional help here.
Your tiling will need to be removed where the toilet is being installed before starting. The fixing frame and cistern need to both be inserted into the wall itself and then attached securely to the pan before the tiling is replaced. A flush plate also needs to be added too.
You shouldn?t have any worries regarding the toilet being able to support your weight as long as you have fitted a fixing frame inside the wall. These toilets are designed to be able to hold around 200kg so they are absolutely fine for the majority of people.
Wall hung toilets flush in the exact same way as more conventional toilets. The only real difference is that instead of a lever or chain to pull, you instead push a button which is mounted on the wall to trigger the flushing action. Many flush plates also feature dual flush technology, allowing you to use less water in your new toilet.
This all comes down to personal preference really, as the look of these toilets can be a bit marmite. They will suit both modern and traditional settings and are fantastic for cloakrooms and smaller bathrooms as they save a lot of space. They are also easy to maintain, and prevent dust from getting trapped around the bottom of the pan like with close coupled examples.
The only real downside to wall hung toilets is that if something does go wrong some items may require the removal of tiles, which obviously isn?t ideal. To combat this, there are flush plates available which lift off, allowing easy, stress-free access to the cistern. It?s best to do some research before buying to ensure it?s something that is practical for your particular setting.
