Toilet Buying Guide

Download our Toilet Buying Guide for all information required to make an informed choice when purchasing your toilet.


A quality toilet is a must have for your bathroom renovation. Being used numerous times of the day, you want it to flush well every time and not break down when you need it most. We have a wide range of quality suites available to buy online and delivered direct to your door, Australia wide. Most of our toilets come standard with soft close seats (you shouldn't have it any other way) and some are easily removed to make cleaning even easier!

Toilet styles to suit any renovation budget

Behind The Wall (Concealed) Toilets

For a minimalist, compact look a behind the wall suite (also known as in-wall or concealed) are popular. The great thing about these toilets are they feature a hidden cistern, either in the wall, in a roof cavity or under a counter, meaning less space is taken up in your bathroom. You can also choose from a range of quality buttons to suit your style and if you are worried about the future serviceability, don’t be, they have been engineered to access everything a plumber needs from the button panel.

Wall Faced Toilets

These are quite distinct because the rear of the pan is flush against the wall, which creates a seal that is much easier to keep clean as nothing can get stuck behind the suite. They also feature universal trap fittings, to suit either S Trap or P Trap plumbing pipes. By far the most common and the most popular toilets sold in Australia today

Close Coupled Toilets

Lower cost alternatives to wall-faced toilets, where the cistern bolts directly to the pan, creating a nice seal and appearance. These are usually completely made of vitreous china, so they will last longer than some plastic cistern connector alternatives. 

Connector or Linked Toilet Suites

These connector suites are perfect for odd plumbing configurations that can often be found in older homes, or if you are looking for a cheap replacement. There is a visible pipe going between the cistern and the pan, which is often covered by a connector piece to give it a “close coupled” look. Although its popularity has somewhat diminished, you can still get a plastic cistern with a vitreous china pan to really save some money on your bathroom renovation.

Things to check before buying a toilet

Waste Trap Type

  1. S Trap exits through the floor
  2. P Trap exits into the rear wall
  3. Skew Trap exits into the side wall

Water Inlet Type

  1. Bottom Inlet enters into the bottom of the cistern (most popular in older homes)
  2. Back Entry is hidden at the top rear of the cistern

How do I choose a toilet?

Here are important factors to consider when purchasing a toilet:

  • For hygiene purposes, a rimless toilet design reduces the build-up of grime and bacteria.
  • For style, behind the wall (Concealed Toilets) have a minimalist and compact look.
  • For a modern look, Wall Faced Toilets are the most popular
  • For a lower cost alternative, Close Coupled Toilets are often the best option
  • For odd plumbing configurations Connector or Link Toilets are perfect
  • Don't forget check your plumbing - it's essential!

What should I look for when buying a toilet?

When buying a toilet check the water inlet type:

  • Bottom Inlet - enters into the bottom of the cistern. Most popular in most older homes. This will be on the left or right side of your pan (bowl).
  • Back Entry - hidden at the top rear of the cistern. Perfect for a 'Tiles Off' renovation, or for new builds as the plumbing is hidden and out of site!

    If you're unsure where these are, consult a plumber.
