High Level Toilets
What is a high level toilet and how does it work?
A high level toilet is a type of toilet where the cistern is mounted high on the wall, usually above head height. It works by using gravity to flush water down into the bowl when the flush lever is pressed, providing a powerful and efficient flush.
Choosing bathroom fixtures and fittings is about combining increased functionality with timeless design. High and low level toilets offer an exquisite style and create maximum visual impact. Perhaps the most traditional toilet design on the market, these timeless units can enhance any bathroom.
Traditional High Level Toilet
A traditional high level toilet features a cistern which is positioned significantly higher than the toilet pan. Incorporating Victorian design with modern functionality, you will benefit from enhanced power when you opt for this classic design.
High Level Toilet Cistern
As a high level toilet cistern is fitted well above the toilet pan, the connecting pipework is used as a decorative and design feature. A modern high level WC may use stainless steel or chrome effect pipework to balance classic styling with modern finishes, for example.
Another fantastic feature of a high level toilet is the pull chain. Only seen on high level toilets, a long pull chain is used to activate the cistern and are available in numerous styles. A central feature of a high level toilet, your pull chain can be used to enhance styling and complete your bathroom design. Additionally, high level toilets have a low level pan that sits on the floor, providing a traditional and elegant look to your bathroom. These toilets stand at over 2 metres tall, making them perfect for period properties. High cistern toilets and WCs come in a range of colour choices and finishes to suit the traditional look you are trying to achieve, whether it is metallic industrial or art deco inspired.
If you want to embody the traditional design associated with a high level toilet but you’re unsure about having a cistern place quite so high on the wall, why not consider a low level traditional toilet?
