Episode Summary

Common in Europe for many years, wall hung toilets are not a standard bathroom specification in North America. Two common misunderstandings about the wall hung toilet is that difficult to install or service and that they are very expensive. Neither of these is true. There are several manufacturers of wall hung toilets, they are ideally suited to small space bathrooms and if detailed properly, can contribute to a very streamlined look. Wall hung toilets have a tall and narrow tank component that is installed between the studs before the drywall stage of construction. Proper structural blocking is critical to give the wall hung toilet the required stability. The toilet bowl is then installed after tile work is complete and access to the tank for any service is through the flush panel, which is mounted on the wall behind the bowl. In terms of cost, they can range up to $1,300 but after a quick internet check we found several Duravit models on sale for under $300, making them a viable alternative to a standard toilet.moreless
