These toilet suites are lower cost alternatives to wall-faced toilets, where the cistern bolts directly to the pan, creating a nice seal and appearance. These toilets are usually completely made of vitreous china, so they will last longer than some plastic cistern connector alternatives.
Here are our technical tips to look out for when buying a close coupled toilet: (A) Waste Trap Type Most are available in an S trap or P trap configuration, allowing you to choose from a range of quality designs that have been engineered for Australian standards and designed for any bathroom renovation. And (B) Water Inlet Type. Some are available with two inlet options. Bottom Inlet (BI) enters into the bottom of the cistern (most popular in older homes) and is connected to a stop cock via a flexible hose or moulded copper pipe, where a Back Entry inlet (BE) is hidden at the top rear of the cistern and needs to be installed by your plumber to match the cistern.
