As far as toilets can be described as such, this product is indeed beautiful. Sleek, classy and well-built. We are very pleased with this toilet. Especially the 2 different flushes.
After a previous cistern sprung a leak, we needed to put in a temporary replacement loo until we have the savings to redo the whole bathroom.I chose a standard toilet and cistern and the purchasing, packaging and delivery of the items were excellent.Two reasons I didn't give a 5 star on all categories -1) the flush lever mechanism is pretty flimsy - and the lever rests at a 45 degree angle (upwards) 2) cheap and cheerfull toilet seat which we've just thrown away rather than fitted - but for under £100 in total we weren't expecting a seat anyway.
Looks good. Quality is average Also I did not realize that they was a package with the sink and victoria plumbing did not deduce me the price so I paid more than what I should have paid!
If you want to create a bathroom which looks like it belongs in a stylish period drama, then an integral aspect will be choosing just the right toilet to achieve an authentic period image. Luckily there are countless traditional toilet designs out there to select from so the main obstacle in your way is actually deciding which style will fit the look of the room best. In this guide we'll be looking at your options, and why they might be suitable for your particular space.
Close coupled: The classic toilet design. Traditional close coupled items often feature more elaborately crafted designs than their modern counterparts. They usually feature a wooden lid too to further emphasise their timeless feel.
High level: For something a little more sophisticated, opting for a high level toilet will give your bathroom a truly authentic period aesthetic. These toilets feature a cistern which is placed higher up the wall than usual, and is connected to the pan via a flush pipe.
Low level: These toilets are a great compromise if you like the image of high level units but simply don't have the space to accommodate one. They work the same way but simply have a shorter flush pipe.
There are a few things you need to understand before choosing your new toilet so you know exactly what you're getting before you buy.
When you purchase your new traditional toilet, what you will often receive is the pan and cistern. Lids will often need to be bought separately, which isn't such as bad thing as this allows some level of personalisation (a dark walnut wooden seat would look great in traditional settings for example). With high level units you will normally receive the pan, cistern and flush pipe. Extras such as seats and cistern brackets will usually have to be bought separately.
As we've already mentioned, sometimes you will need by buy seats separately. Other items which aren't usually supplied include inlet and waste pipes, wall mounting brackets and floor fixing kits. We've got a great set of 'essential items' which pop up when you add items to your basket, so don't forget to check these out for those important extras.
These pipes are essential aspects of any toilet system. The inlet pipe is what supplies fresh water to the cistern while the waste pipe gets rid of water from the pan when the toilet is flushed.
The cistern capacity of toilets can vary depending on what design you go for. A UK cistern will normally hold around 6 litres however there are more eco-friendly options available which will hold slightly less while still being just as effective.
