The 3 main types


The type of WC we are all used to is what we call a close-coupled where the cistern sits on the pan at the back. Most WCs nowadays have these two key features:

  • Dual flush
  • Soft-closing seat


There are variations on the small features such as:

  1. Wrap-over lids
  2. Rimless pans
  3. Closed-back pans (can't see the pipe at the back)
  4. Open back (when the pipe has to take a turn left or right)
