GUIDE TO BUYING TOILET

4 types of toilets

The Rim

Check if the toilet distributes water evenly by running your hand inside the rim and locating the evenly distributed small holes, also known as a boxed rim.

S trap & P trap

“S” trap or “P” trap refers to different types of toilet outlets. S trap is when the outlet goes through the floor and P trap is when the outlet goes through the wall.

Soft close

Most of our toilets come standard with soft close seat and boxed rim. Soft close means you can close the lid without it making that awful noise when others are sleeping.

Porcelain coating

Additional coating on the porcelain makes the cleaning easier.

Quiet flushing technology

Most of our toilets have quiet flushing technology and functions.
