Wall Hung Toilets: Modernizing the Common Toilet
- 0 Comment(s)
A wall hung toilet is a lavatory system in which the toilet bowl is mounted directly to the wall, while its tank is installed inside the wall cavity. This allows wall hung toilets to take up less space in a bathroom while giving it a sleeker, more modern appearance.
When determining the installation and compatibility of a wall hung toilet, there are three primary factors to consider:
1. The Bowl
The bowl of the wall hung toilet will be the only part visible outside of the wall. It's important to find a bowl that matches the look and the style of your bathroom. If you're worried about compatibility, just remember that any two bolt mounted bowl, will work with any wall carrier we carry on PlumbingOnline.ca.
2. Actuator Plate
What's an actuator plate? That's a great question. The actuator plate or flush plate is a panel mounted on the wall used to flush the toilet. They come in a variety of finishes and features. From single flush push button plates to dual flush for water conservation, there are even touch-less plates that work with the wave of your hand. Match the brand of your wall carrier, and you'll be one step closer to your perfect toilet.
3. Wall Carrier
The wall carrier may require some quick research, but the only thing to keep in mind is, as long as the same company manufactures the wall carrier and the actuator plate, they are compatible. There are two sizes of wall carriers for installation in either 2x4 and 2x6 framed walls. If you are unsure what type of wall you have, consult with a reputable contractor. Please note: Be sure to know which wall carrier size you need before purchasing!
Wall hung toilets have become common in new builds as wall carrier needs to be installed in the frame of the wall, but they can also be installed as part of a bathroom renovation. In a renovation, some new drywall and finishing may be required, but the result is more sophisticated and modern looking bathroom space.
