In recent decades, bathroom interior design has shifted toward a sharper, more practical, room-like style. A further benefit of this technique is that it has compelling reasons for being used in the first place. Exposed toilet cisterns, waste pipes and pedestal toilets may be things of the past. In either case, you should consider installing a flush tank placed on the wall or a flush tank that is integrated into the wall. Apart from allowing for great architectural freedom, they also provide a number of other benefits.

What is a Concealed Flush Tank Toilet?

The flushing components (the cistern) are hidden inside the wall, leaving only the pan, either wall-mounted or wall-faced and push plate, also known as 'Actuators,' exposed. In-Wall Cistern, Concealed Cistern, Concealed Toilet, and Wall Hung Toilet are all terms used to describe such an installation. The button panel can be used to access the concealed cistern if it needs to be repaired or maintained. They can sustain up to 400kg of weight after they're installed.

Wall-mounted toilets are often seen in high-rise public restrooms or in apartments to save space. Plumbers for these types of structures do everything possible to install concealed cisterns where space is available.

Pros of Concealed Tank Toilets

  • Because concealed cisterns are built into the wall, they save a substantial amount of bathroom space that would otherwise be taken by the cistern.
  • To ensure trouble-free operation, the hidden cisterns employ cutting-edge technology and functional features.
  • Because the cistern is concealed behind a tiled wall, it cannot be easily accessed and fixed if there is a problem with it or it has to be replaced.
  • A hidden tank toilet is the most preferred type of toilet system in high-rise buildings and luxury flats due to its sleek and futuristic design.
  • A dual-flush mechanism is installed on all actuator plates. This dual-flush mechanism reduces running costs by conserving water – it uses just four litres of water for a single flush when only liquid waste has to be disposed of.
  • One of the most notable advantages of built-in cisterns in conjunction with wall-hung toilet pans is that the user may adjust the height of the toilet to match their own height requirements.
  • A cistern concealed behind the walls results in less flushing noise.
  • Luxury bathroom fixtures, wall-hung cisterns, and concealed toilets, in general, will appeal to purchasers, raising the value of your home immediately.

Cons of Concealed Tank Toilets

  • Because of the tiled wall, repairing the toilet cistern will be difficult. Creating a wall void or providing the plumber access behind the wall can assist.
  • They may be slightly more expensive to acquire than a conventional tank toilet cistern since they are not as popular as ordinary toilet suites.
  • If the water in your home is turned off and you need to flush the toilet, you cannot manually fill the toilet cistern.
  • The Cisterns usually need the use of a wall-facing or wall-hanging pan, which necessitates the installation of a bracket to not only hold the pan in place but also to ensure that it can sustain the weight of the person using the toilet suite.
