Colchester, Essex (PRWEB UK) 29 October 2012
Adding to its growing range of own branded products, TradePlumbing.co.uk, one of the UK's leading bathroom and kitchen plumbing retailers, has launched six stylish close coupled toilets designs.
The six new designs are Mansat, Saverne, Corbie, Alban, Belfort and St Helier and encompass a mixture of styles. The Belfort, with its traditional style would suit a period property, whereas the modern design of the Saverne and Mansat would compliment any modern home.
A close coupled toilet is so called because its cistern and pan sit closely together, with no gap or pipe work between them. Before the close coupled toilet was invented, most homes had a ‘high level’ toilet. These were the toilets that had the cistern high up above them on the wall to increase flushing power in the days when this was needed. They can often still be seen in period properties and hotels. The high level toilet was quite an attractive design, but it had a tendency to drip on the heads of sitters - although the drips were clean water from the cistern above, it was still an unpleasant experience. The now, omni-present close coupled toilet is a more modern design making use of up-to-date flushing technology to provide a powerful flush without the need for the increased force of gravity.
There are many benefits of a close-coupled toilet. The most popular being there is less space for dirt and dust to gather, meaning that cleaning is easier, and the compact nature of the toilet means that the top of the cistern is lower than on a standard toilet and easier to reach and maintain.
Managing Director of TradePlumbing, Peter Clayton says, "We are very pleased and proud to be launching more TradePlumbing own brand products. We have worked closely with designers to ensure we produce stylish and high-quality products, all at unbeatable prices, of course. The quality of our new close coupled toilets speaks for itself and each new design comes with a five year guarantee for that extra piece of mind."
