Fitting or Fixing Toilets
Choosing toilets for your new home or recently renovated bathroom is not easy. You’ll ask yourself what’s available, and what would fit in my premises.
At Dickson Plumbing & Gas Fitting we have been installing toilets for many years and we are ready to help you. There are four main toilet styles to choose from. Each style has a different shape and size as well as feature set.
Finding a toilet that fits your existing pipes starts with taking some simple measurements. , Don’t worry, it is easy to do. Our friendly team are here to help and we can get you sorted in no time at all.
Today’s toilet suites have certainly stepped up in terms of style, shape, comfort and water efficiency. Caroma’s range is no exception. To make your decision-making easier, it pays to know what you want to spend as well as have an understanding of the water efficiency star ratings. You should also be clear about the style you prefer. Then it’s a matter of selecting one that complements your other fittings.
Here is an overview of the suite types available to you:
Invisi concealed toilets – The cistern (or tank) is hidden inside the wall cavity, ceiling or under counter – leaving only the toilet pan to be seen. This style of toilet is very modern in design and takes up little space in your bathroom – perfect if you are working with a smaller bathroom.
Wall faced toilet suites – The back of the pan sits flush against the wall, meaning there are no gaps between the toilet and the wall at all. This is a solid unit and creates a bold look in your bathroom. Due to no gaps between the toilet and the wall, it is easier to clean.
Close coupled toilets – The pan and cistern are joined together so you cannot see the flush pipe. This type of toilet suite is a very traditional look and suits all types of bathrooms.
Connector toilet suites – This toilet suite is the most traditional looking toilet with the cistern joined to the pan by a plastic flush pipe and connector plate. It provides the greatest amount of flexibility for installation.
Caroma offer a few nice styles.
Repairs and Maintenance
If you would like to keep your toilet flashing it is possible. We can make the adjustments it needs or replace the part in question. Leaks can sometimes occur and in most cases it’s no more then re-seating a seal or tightening a part.
Tip! Avoid using the blue or coloured dyes inside your cistern. Many of these types slowly etch the surface of your plastic part making them sticky and can contribute to failures. If you have any concerns contact us.
