Water closets or toilets, as they are commonly known, have been around since the early 19th century, when they were made using ceramic bowls and a system of levers. However, modern water closets differ greatly from their ancestors, with some even having buttons to flush them instead of the traditional pedal-based mechanisms. In today’s world, there are many options available when it comes to choosing the right kind of water closet for your home or office like below:
1.1. One Piece Water Closets:
One-piece toilets are old school toilets that use water pressure to push waste through a large hole in one end. They can be used without added accessories, but they need standard 4 connections (larger than most modern drains) and may require modification for ADA accessibility. One-piece toilet prices start at $10, with top-end models costing $200-$300. If you live in an older home or want to renovate an old bathroom, these are often less expensive than other types.
Traditional toilets are floor standing, with a tank below and a seat above. These are also called full-flush water closets. One drawback to these types is that they don’t conserve water or energy well—if you want to reduce your overall water bill, it may be better to use another style of toilet.
In a bid to maximise space in small bathrooms, designers have been looking to wall hung toilet systems. This involves having a bathroom cabinet that houses a concealed pan and siphon jet. The pan is mounted on an angle from which it drops down into a pipe.
Urinals are found in almost every home, school, office and public washroom today and have been around since the 19th century. Used by both men and women, urinals can be placed at home or in public spaces such as malls, restaurants and offices – offering the benefits of convenience and hygiene to anyone who needs to use them. But what exactly are urinals? How do they work? And what are some of the different types of urinals available on the market today? Let’s explore these questions in this post!
With all that you need to consider when looking for a urinal, deciding what type of urinal is best for your business can be overwhelming. There are two main types of toilets: wall-hung and floor-standing; each one has its own benefits and drawbacks. Wall-hung models offer some privacy but take up less space than floor standing models, which is beneficial if you’re short on room.
2.1. Wall Mounted Urinals:
Wall-mounted urinals are far more common in Europe and most of Asia. They don’t work very well, according to a few sources I consulted—if they’re used by men standing side-by-side, they have a tendency to spray each other when flushed. If wall-mounted models are positioned back-to-back, water from one unit can flow onto another when both are flushed.
Just like it sounds, floor-mounted urinals are installed flush with a wall, similar to your average toilet. They can be used in just about any setting, including homes and businesses. While they may look modern and sleek, many people who aren’t used to them don’t like using them because of their potential for splashing. Their installation process is also more difficult than that of some other kinds of urinals. For these reasons, they tend to be more expensive than other types of designs.
