Toilets are an essential item for any bathroom. Whilst traditionally a purely functional element of a bathroom, toilets nowadays also come with a visual aesthetic that can complement the look and style of your bathroom.
We supply both visually stunning and functional toilets to make your bathroom space a welcoming part of your home.
Close coupled toilet suites
Our close coupled toilet suits are an ideal choice because of their superb price point and stylish exterior. The cistern is located on the back of the pan with no pipes shown. This creates a seamless and easy to clean look. Unlike back to wall suites, this type of toilet does not sit flush against the wall. You can find both P and S trap varieties, allowing for waste disposal through the floor or wall.
Connector toilet suites
Connector toilet suites are similar to close coupled toilets but they have a visible pipe connecting the cistern to the pan. This allows for flexibility when installing as you can adjust the length of the pipe depending on where the cistern and pan will sit. If you're not sure of the toilet dimensions or how it will fit in an awkward bathroom, connector toilet suits can be an easy solution. The pipe can also be concealed.
Back to wall toilet suites
This type of toilet sits flush against the wall. A very minimalistic and modern look. Similar to close coupled toilet suites, the cistern is attached to the pan, so no pipework is shown.
In wall cistern toilet suites
These are the most stylish and modern of all toilet options. So much so that you can get them in other colours than white. Our Fienza selections come in a variety of matte black styles. The cistern is concealed within the wall with only the pan and flush plates showing. You can also easily choose a variety of styles and colours for the flush plates. Should an issue occur, the cistern will be accessible via a panel installed by your plumber.
What is a P trap and S Trap (and skew trap)?
You'll probably notice all of our toilets identify as either p trap, s trap, skew trap or universal trap. So how does this affect your choice and how you will install your toilet?
Toilet traps are designed to prevent gas and smells from seeping into your home via the sewer your toilet is connected to. It does this by way of using a water barrier.
An S trap uses a pipe that is a similar shape to the letter 'S'. While a P trap looks more like a 'P'.
An S trap is attached to the floor. The setout measurements that you see on toilet installation guides are the distance from the wall to the centre of the pipe.
A P trap goes into the wall. The setout measurement is the distance from the floor to the centre of the pipe.
There is also what is known as a skew trap which is similar to a p trap but can bend up to 90 degrees. This allow the pipe to enter into a side wall instead. Again, the setout measurement is from the floor to centre of the pipe.
Some toilets also feature a universal trap which means they can be implemented in a P or S trap configuration.
Which trap is right for me?
Nowadays, there is no discernible functional difference between an S or P trap. The decision for which one to opt for is really up to the space that your bathroom allows.
The traps exit the toilet pan at roughly the midway point so you need to measure the distance from this point to the wall or floor.
Naturally, the P trap will suit back to wall toilet suits more. An S trap is more handy for connector toilet suits since that will allow you to move the toilet further out.
If you space is really tight, you can opt for a skew trap which will push the trap to the side and allow you to push the toilet further back.
Our recommendation? Make sure you know your exact measurements before purchasing a toilet!
What is a bottom and back inlet toilet?
All toilets are either back or bottom inlet. Many can also be configured to have either one. This refers to where the water enters and fills the cistern.
A bottom inlet connects to the bottom of the cistern. You'll notice it's a bottom inlet by the tap that is located near the lower side of the cistern. A back inlet is located inside the cistern with the plumbing hidden.
Which one suits you is up to your existing plumbing (although it is possible to change it) and if you want your plumbing exposed or not.
What is a Geberit flush system?
Many of our in wall cistern toilet suites come with a Geberit flush system. This is widely considered one of the most advanced flush systems in the world. There are no metal corrosive elements nor rubber parts, making for an extremely reliable and silent flush system. The result is a virtually maintenance free cistern.
What is a soft close seat?
Many modern toilets come with a soft close seat, and we find that such a feature is a must in any modern installation. Such seats can close by themselves after a slight push. They close slowly, softly and quietly.
The benefits are obvious. No more loud noises, especially during night trips to the toilet. It's also great if you have kids who are more likely to use the toilet abruptly and with less care. Our soft close seats will ensure that your toilet seats last well beyond the manufacturer's warranty and are easier to maintain.
