Types of toilet available:

Back to Wall Toilet Suites

Floor Level

The modern back to wall suite unfortunately has one weakness in its installation versatility and that is that it’s not able to be installed in positions with medium/large fall.

If your floor falls away noticeably to a floor grate unfortunately a back to wall suite in not going to be flexible enough to fit in this circumstance.
Skirting tiles

When installing a back to wall suite in most circumstances if the walls are not tiled above the level of the toilet suite than the skirting tiles will need to be removed so that the pan can go back flush against the wall.

A tiler or handy man will be required to cut and replace the tiles removed for installation at an extra cost.

Types of Pans

S-trap Toilet Pans
S-trap Toilet Pans are the most commonplace in Australia. It is identified with the toilet waste of the trap connecting directly into the floor-mounted pan collar.
P-trap Toilet Pans
P-trap version pans have horizontal outlet waste which connects into a pan collar mounted on the wall.
Skew trap toilet pans
Skew trap version pans are available in left and right hand models with a horizontal or angled outlet waste which is offset at 90° and connects directly into a pan collar mounted on a side wall.
Sometimes this is not visible due to the pan style and design if this is the case then a safe rule of thumb is if you currently have a close coupled or back to wall toilet suite than the same style of suite will be versatile enough to fit.
