What is a Back to Wall Toilet

For Starters

Back to wall toilets are simple where the pan part of the toilet is visible and the cistern from view usually within a unit or behind a wall. Some people see this type of a toilet as a compromise between standard close coupled toilets and wall hung toilets. From a slow start up they have really started to grow in popularity and with this growth the variety on offer has grown too. With this growth there are many examples of truly striking and graceful styles.

Installation

These are very straight forward and very simple to fit for a qualified plumber. In some cases they are easier to fit than a traditional toilet as the hidden void provides flexibility for pipework changes and so these pipes do not need to be exact or as tidy as normal as they are hidden.

How do they flush?

The flushing mechanism is the same as with more conventional toilets where the cistern releases fresh water into the pan and then refills from the inlet valve. The actual difference is that instead of a handle or chain, either a flush button or plate is installed on the wall which connects to the cistern hidden behind it. These plates are available in single and dual flush options, the latter in order to help save more water. Where the plates are quite large such as the majority of the ones from Grohe and Geberit these are usually designed in this way so that an access panel is avoided as these may be easily removed to access working parts.

Are they right for my bathroom?

This is very much subjective and depends on whether you like this style and if it suits the rest of your bathroom fittings. Modern or traditional styles are readily available and back to wall toilets can look best in either setting due to their simplistic designs.

They are also ideal for cloakrooms, en-suites or smaller bathrooms as their compact nature makes them more practical in these environments as they may take up less room than conventional close coupled toilets. A point to note is that although this cistern is hidden you will still need to allow for the depth of space that these take up although sometimes it may be possible to recess some or part of their depth into a wall.
