Traditional Toilets

Granley High-level

A typical example of a traditional-style toilet is where the toilet cistern is positioned high up on the wall and connects to the toilet pan by way of a flushpipe. This is called a high-level toilet and the flush is activated by a pull chain. The flush is very efficient because gravity helps to increase the force and speed of the water.

Traditional toilets include authentic period pieces which were made from lead and heavy metals, today's equivalent pan and cistern are usually made from ceramic, although some manufacturers supply cisterns made from steel or cast iron.

The flushpipe connects to the cistern flush mechanism inside the cistern and then to the hole at the back of the pan. There is usually a pipe bracket to help keep the pipe secure, and in some cases, as with the Granley high-level toilet from Heritage, the bracket features a rubber stopper which the lid of the seat rests against when it is upright, which protects the plated pipe from being damaged or dented.

Victoria low-level toilet

A variation on this is the low-level toilet. Here the cistern is still positioned on the wall, but the connecting flushpipe to the pan is much shorter and the flush is activated by a handle on the front. Seen here is the Victoria low-level toilet from Heritage.
