Types and shapes of toilet pans
Before we consider the positive and negative properties of one model or the other, we need to figure out what types and shapes of toilet pans are there.
They can be separated by:
- pan shape;
- water drain;
- option of cistern fastening;
- output into the canalization.
On of the key factors is the shape. The market offers three types now: dish-shaped, funneled and kicker ones.
Classifying this bathroom fixture by wash off, there are two types: straight and circular. By type of withdrawal of residual products of life processes into the canalization, the toilet pans are separated to: planting, horizontal and vertical wash off.
Besides, they are separated by type of assemblage and can be floor-standing or underslung. Cistern can be a monoblock with the toilet pan or it can be separate, but fixed to the building. There is also the option of cut-in or overhead cisterns. At the moment these are all types and shapes of toilet pans, which you can find in the market.
How to choose the toilet pan correctly
As we figured that out, we can deal with the main question: «How to choose the toilet pan correctly?».
Water wash off into the canalization is the simplest example and the choice depends solely on the system of wipes in your house.
The choice of cistern is a little bit more difficult. Two parameters are important here: place of assemblage and water inlet. You should prefer the overhead cistern. With this option, water gains the speed and more effectively removes the products of life. Speaking of water inlet, the lower one is considered more reliable than the side one. Main plus is the absence of noise during the gaining of water.
The water drain is the important parameter as well. Multistage (straight) is worse than the circular one. Such water drain doesn’t seize all pan unlike the second option. You shouldn’t also buy the toilet pans with unusual wash off (water gaining and rough drain due to the high expense of water.
Speaking of pan. What toilet pans are better? Speaking of dish-shaped ones, these are the disadvantages of this pan: smell and ineffective wash off. Second option is funneled. Good toilet pan, however not the best choice either. Use of this pan won’t be comfortable due to the possibility of splashes.
At the moment, the most practical and hygienic one is the kicker shape. This pan’s use isn’t accompanied by splash and the wash off is quite effective due to the incline.
The next question: «What toilet pan to choose? Floor-standing or underslung? Construction doesn’t influence on the quality of use. But every option has its own advantages.
Floor-standing toilet pan is easy to establish and durable. It is established as a rule in spacious rooms.
Underslung option is rejected by many people because of fear of instability. But you shouldn’t fear, because this toilet pan is rated for assignment of 400 kg. Clear advantage is the simplicity of cleaning because you can easily wash the floor of bathroom.
Thus, we make a conclusion that the optimal choice would be:
- kicker pan;
- circular wash off in two options (full and economical);
- underslung cistern with lower water inlet;
- porcelain or armor-acryl.
