Close Coupled Toilet
A close coupled toilet, sometimes known as a close-coupled wc, is a toilet whose cistern sits on the back of the toilet, with no gap or pipework between the wc pan and the cistern. The close-coupled toilet is a more modern design making use of up to date flushing technology to provide the same amount of flush without the need for the increased force of gravity provided by older styles of toilet with separate cisterns.
A benefit of the close-coupled wc is that there is less space for dirt and dust to gather, meaning that cleaning is easy. The compact nature of the toilet means that the top of the cistern is lower than on a standard toilet.
