FAQ About Versatile Toilets
How to choose a toilet?
There are four basic factors you need to consider before purchasing a toilet: the toilet pan, the cistern, the plumbing, and the toilet dimensions.
The toilet pan: S-trap, P-trap, and Skew trap are the three basic pan types in Australia. The most common set-out in Australia is S-trap. S-trap pan’s waster pipe connects to the floor. P-trap pans are used in wall-hung toilets for their waste pipe is connected to the wall. Skew trap now is barely used, because its pipe connects to the other side of the toilet bowl.
The cistern: A cistern is an important component of a toilet. The function of a cistern is to send water from the tank into the toilet pan while you flushing your toilet. So it is very important to buy a toilet with a high-quality cistern.
The plumbing: The plumbing will limit the types of toilets to buy. If you haven't decorated the bathroom yet, you can choose a toilet you want. However, if you just want to change the toilet in your home, you need to consider whether the toilet matches the plumbing.
The toilet dimensions: The toilet dimension should also be considered. Standard toilet size is between 69-76 cm depths, around 51 cm widths, and 53-79 cm back heights. Choosing the best toilet that is fit for your bathroom space and your budget.
