What are wall hung toilets?
Wall hung toilets, also known as wall-mounted and floating toilets; are a modern, clean, and efficient way of installing a toilet in your new bathroom. They are simply a ceramic pan (toilet bowl) and seat that has the effect of floating off the ground by being affixed to the bathroom wall - hence the name 'wall-hung'.
By removing the need for a standard exposed cistern, the wall hung toilet is a graceful piece. Comfortable to use and equally pleasing to behold, they are a truly modern innovation with a timeless, iconic appeal. Popular models are supplied by leading names such as Villeroy and Boch, Laufen and Ideal Standard, who have all created their own spin on this model of WC pan.
Wall Hung Toilets in More Depth
Difference between the wall hung toilet and the more commonly found close-coupled toilet is that they do not sit on the bathroom floor as their name implies. Much like close-coupled toilet, the cistern is behind a wall and a flush button or plate is placed on the wall, leaving a much cleaner finish. A lot of concern is how much weight can the WC take as it is not placed on the floor, however, not to worry, the most toilets are tested to at least 500kg or 1100 pounds in imperial measurements.

How does Flushing system work on Wall hung toilets?
Wall hung toilets flush as same as ‘standard’ toilets. The only difference is that instead of a lever or chain to pull or press, you push a button which is mounted on the wall to trigger the flushing action.
