Close Coupled Toilets
Close coupled toilets explained
What is a Close Coupled Toilet?
A close coupled toilet sounds complicated but it’s not. Essentially, a close coupled toilet is the type of toilet you’d normally think of if someone asked you to picture one – the cistern is located directly behind the toilet bowl instead of being high up in the more traditional design of the high and low-level toilet styles. Manufactured in both modern and traditional styles today, close coupled WC’s are the most popular toilet style in the UK.
How do they work?
Depending on the design, flushing can be activated via a flush button or a handle – through connecting parts, the water goes straight from the cistern into the bowl. Most of the parts on a typical close coupled toilet are hidden within the casings, ensuring close coupled WC’s can fit into most bathroom spaces.
One great thing about the close coupled toilet is that the style can suit any bathroom. As the cistern and bowl are coupled together, you can have a sleek unit designed to fit into a thin space or a more expansive traditional unit that stands out a little more.
