Why is it called a close coupled toilet?

This is perhaps the style of toilet you will most commonly find in the UK these days. Close coupled toilets have the cistern attached to the toilet bowl, creating one streamlined unit which combines both essential parts. The pipes are hidden within the casings of the toilet and their compact nature means they are perfect for fitting into small or awkward spaces. For example, if there is a minor recess in your bathroom wall, having a close coupled toilet fitted in there may make the most of the space. These toilets are both quick and easy to have installed, making them ideal for any bathroom suite.

Why choose a close-coupled toilet?

With the cistern being directly attached to the toilet pan, this type of toilet is incredibly easy to install. If you already have a close-coupled toilet in suite that you want to replace, then it can be much simpler to go like-for-like. This is because the spacing of a close-coupled toilet is different from wall hung toilet or back to wall  toilets where the waste pipe will need to be altered. In small businesses, or where a particular design aesthetic is being sought, these can be a great option.

How does a close coupled toilet work?

The toilet bowl and cistern are connected together allowing the water to evacuate from the cistern into the bowl using either a flush button or handle. Most models will have the option of either a 3 litre or 6 litre flush, which puts you in control of your home’s water consumption.
