Wall-Hung Toilets

Wall-hung toilets are commonly found in commercial settings and public areas, characterized by flush buttons that are seamlessly integrated into the wall and toilet bowls that float above the floor, presenting a streamlined profile. However, these stylish fixtures can also be a great addition to residential bathrooms. Installing a wall-mounted toilet in your home can enhance the bathroom’s aesthetics with a contemporary flair while also discreetly concealing the plumbing infrastructure within the wall, away from sight.

Standard Toilets

Toilets are a fundamental component of any bathroom setup. Whether you’re renovating or simply need to replace a malfunctioning unit, you will encounter various choices in new bathroom fixtures. Toilets vary widely in form, size, and type, including both one-piece and two-piece models. Historically, most toilets featured a separate tank and bowl, which were bolted together—a style that remains available. Lately, the one-piece toilet has emerged as a popular alternative. Both styles perform effectively, and often manufacturers offer identical designs in either configuration. Below, we will detail the distinctions to help you decide which is best suited for your home.

Tankless Toilets Explained

Ever wondered why traditional toilets are equipped with a water tank, unlike sinks and bathtubs? The reason lies in their flushing mechanism. Most home toilets use a siphon system, which requires a rapid influx of water into the toilet to activate the siphon tube at the bottom of the bowl, effectively drawing the contents through the drainage system. In contrast, tankless toilets are designed to operate without a tank; they use a direct supply line that delivers water at high pressure, enabling a powerful flush that can effectively remove waste. These units rely solely on the pressure of the incoming water. In environments like private homes where water pressure may be insufficient, tankless toilets might incorporate pumps or additional technologies to boost their flushing capability.

Bidet Toilets

Bidet toilets, far from being a novel concept, have enjoyed widespread popularity around the world for some time. Recently, American homeowners have begun to embrace the advantages of bidet and bidet washlet seats, spurred by advancements in technology and more accessible pricing. One significant discussion around bidets is their health and sanitation benefits compared to traditional toilet paper. Bidets are lauded for their cleanliness, which includes features like heated seats and hands-free operation. Indeed, using a bidet is considered to be more hygienic than using toilet paper alone.

What is a Toilet Flange?

Commonly referred to as a closet flange, a toilet flange is an essential pipe fitting that connects the toilet to the drainage pipe in the floor. Typically made from materials like rubber, PVC, or metal, the flange is fastened with bolts or screws. A tight seal is ensured by a rubber gasket or wax ring between the toilet and the flange.

Can a Toilet be Installed Without a Closet Flange?

While theoretically possible, attaching a toilet directly to the floor or subfloor without a closet flange is not advisable. Doing so often leads to leaks at the toilet base shortly after installation. Thus, a closet flange is crucial for proper toilet installation.

How to Identify if a Toilet Flange Needs Replacement

Look out for these indicators of a damaged toilet flange:

  • The toilet wobbles on its base.
  • The floor around the toilet is wet or feels soft.
  • Uncertainty about the last time the flange was replaced.
  • Persistent sewer-like odors in the bathroom.
