Dare we say it, toilets these days are pretty trendy. With a wide range of designs and options to choose from, the toilet you get could make or break your bathroom look.
“If you’ve got small kids or tall teenagers, you might need to think about the height of your toilet. Also think about longevity in the home, like toilets suited for aged care.“

You probably haven’t spent a lot of time talking about the ins and outs of toilets, but our showroom consultants have. Their engaging toilet conversation covers things like: is your toilet a S-trap or P- trap? Or, do you want a linked or close-couple suite? And, who uses your toilet? That one seems obvious, but tall users might want an Easy Height toilet. It’s a thing.
These are the details that matter, because of course you want a good-looking toilet and cistern, but it needs to be compatible with your space and your needs. P.S. Who cleans your toilet? Give them a say. They’ll want a rimless pan which is easy to wipe over. Or, you could clean it for them. Either way, read on for more information about Cleanflush® technology.

What is a WELS rating?
This refers to the water efficiency of your toilet. The higher the WELS rating, the less water is used to flush the toilet.
What is the toilet pan?
Essentially the bowl.
What is the toilet trap?
The curved channel that goes from the bottom of the toilet bowl to the drainpipe. S-trap waste pipes connect to the floor and P-traps connect to the wall.
Can you get soft closing toilet seats and lids?
Just like draws, most new toilets have these.
What is the best toilet for a small space?
Wall-hung or wall-faced toilets can save space and make a small room appear more spacious. Some people are deterred because it may seem difficult to access the cistern for repairs, but you can actually do so from the hole behind the flush plate.
Can I change where the toilet goes?
Tough one. It’s best to talk to your plumber. You probably can, but there might be extra costs involved.
