The cistern is one of the core components of the toilet since it is basically the water tank which holds water for the flush.
It is constructed with a few parts which work together to regulate the flow of water inside the toilet.
When we flush the toilet, water is released in the toilet pan which rinses it and carries the waste into the sewer.
In the majority of today’s toilets, the bathroom cistern is mounted above the toilet bowl.
You can find cisterns and accessories in TOYO’s sanitaryware collection.
These valves are located inside the cistern and their primary function is to regulate the flow of water during flushing.
The outlet valve is responsible for releasing water from the cistern tank into the toilet bowl once the flush is pressed.
The inlet valve is responsible for refilling the cistern with water after flushing.
The flush lever is responsible for releasing water when it is pressed or pulled.
Upon activation, it releases water from the cistern into the toilet bowl.
Many flush levers are sold with chains which attach to the inside of the external flushing mechanism.
The chain which is used to attach the lever to the flapper prevents the flow of water from the tank to the toilet bowl.
The flapper is a rubber stopper which is located at the bottom of the toilet.
It is controlled by the flush lever and releases water into the toilet bowl. Once the water has been released, it falls back in place to block the hole at the bottom of the tank.
If the flapper loses its seal or starts to crack, water will start leaking from the toilet.
The overflow tube is a vertical tube inside the toilet tank which prevents water from overflowing by directing extra water to the bowl.
This makes it easy to repair structural defaults and refill the cistern once the fault is repaired.
A concealed cistern is hidden behind the wall of your bathroom or within a cabinet and only the flush plate is visible.
This contributes to a cleaner and more refined look which is ideal for minimalist styles.
How To Access A Concealed Cistern
Wall Mounted Toilets
Wall mounted toilets are toilets in which the toilet bowl is mounted directly to the wall. They are not supported by any pedestals underneath them.
They are ideal for compact bathrooms since they take up less space compared to other toilets.
Back to Wall Toilets
Back to wall toilets sit against the wall and have a small pedestal at the bottom.
They are the perfect blend of traditional and modern toilet designs.
Standard toilets use exposed cisterns where the tank is placed at the back of the toilet bowl.
It is visible and rests against the wall.
