Different types of toilets
Choosing a toilet used to simply be a matter of choosing a size and possibly a colour. Today however, like the rest of the fittings and fixtures in a bathroom, toilet design has branched out into different styles and functions. This means that when you’re choosing a new toilet you need to think about how you want it to look, as well as practical matters such as water savings and cost.
Close Coupled Toilet Suites
Along with link style toilets (where the pipe connecting the toilet to its cistern is visible), closed coupled toilet suites are probably the most common design you will find in people’s homes and businesses. The design is traditional, with the cistern placed close to the pan and the pipe hidden away. These toilets are functional and hard wearing, however cleaning can be an issue because of the hard to get at space at the back.
Back To Wall Toilet Suite
Similar to the close coupled toilet, the back to wall suite does not have visible pipes, but the cistern is fixed directly to the wall, meaning that there is less of a gap between the wall and the unit. The can be a cost effective choice if you’re looking for design as well as function.
Wall Faced Toilet Suite
Wall faced toilets have become one of the design statements in the bathroom in recent years, because of it’s sleek “no fuss” appearance. All pipework and the cistern is actually hidden in a wall panel behind the toilet, which means only the pan and the flush controls are visible. Wall faced toilets can be quieter and easier to clean than conventional toilets as the pipes are well hidden. However, in the event of an emergency these toilets can be harder to fix quickly.
Wall Hung Toilet Suite
The latest in modern toilet design, wall hung toilets are seen in high end homes and businesses. These toilets are hung onto a bracket in the wall, which lifts the pan completely free of the ground. The pipe and cistern is then hidden behind a wall panel, similar to the wall faced toilet. These are, without doubt, the easiest toilets to keep clean.
COMMON toilet PROBLEMS
While having a clogged toilet is one of the most common and generally urgent issues, there can be a number of things that can go wrong. Some are just plain annoying, but some can be an indication of an underlying issue, and should be checked out by a qualified plumber as soon as possible.
- Water leaking from the toilet – this can be caused by a crack in a pipe, the pan or the cistern
- Toilet not flushing properly – this can have many causes, such as a faulty toilet flush button, a blockage in the pipe, or a low amount of water
- A toilet that fills too slowly – this can be caused because of damage to the taps that fill it, or it may be due to the float in the cistern.
- Toilet making noise – all toilets make noise, however if you notice that it sounds like it is continuously filling, or starts making unusual noises such as a foghorn, knocking or rumbling, it’s time to call in a plumber.
- Cracked Bowl – many older toilets can develop a cracked pan, and in serious cases, the toilet may need to be replaced.
- Water constantly running – often caused by a faulty inlet valve, which causes the water to constantly run after being flushed
why get Your toilet fixed?
Emergencies such as an overflowing toilet aside, it’s easy enough for people to put off getting issues such as a cracked pan or a slightly leaking toilet pipe fixed at some point in the future. What might be considered to be a “minor” issue however, could easily turn into a serious problem. For example, even a small amount of water leaking out of the bottom of a toilet can damage the surrounding areas, and it can pose a health risk if it is dirty water.
Most toilet repairs require only small fixes – for example, changes to parts – however problems which have been left for any length of time will be costly and time consuming to repair.
Don’t forget that leaking toilets can also add up over time on your water bill. You may not even notice a bit of water pooling at the back of your toilet, but you’ll certainly notice when your costs go up without you knowing why.
