No Cistern, no worries. Why smart designers like smart toilets?
Lafeme smart toilets offer comfort and style. Australian architects and designers are now embracing the idea of a streamlined toilet with an inbuilt bidet. Not only does this allow for space savings, it also provides optimum hygiene and ease of use tailored to the needs of the user. Essentially, Lafeme smart toilets address issues of form and function a like.
In Australia, there has been a shift in residential and commercial properties towards smart toilets with no cisterns. The conventional toilet is slowly but surely becoming a thing of the past. So why are more and more Australians choosing a smart toilet without a cistern? Put simply, they are sleek and modern, they save space, and they are also a more hygeanic option requiring less maintenance.
So, what is a cistern free toilet? As the name suggests, a tankless or cistern free toilet is any toilet that does not rely on a tank of water to clear the bowl. Instead, tankless toilets receive water directly from a supply line at a high enough pressure that a single flush can carry waste through the drainage system. Therefore, these toilets are powered using only the force of water entering from the supply line.
From a technical perspective, the Lafeme cisternless toilet is far more efficient at the flush process. With traditional cistern design, it is the force of gravity which gives energy to the flushing water. This process is incomparable when it comes to the Lafeme cisternless toilet which is powered by mains water pressure. The mains water pressure is usually around 400kPa which equates to holding a fully opened garden hose directly into the toilet bowl! With this sort of force, and the latest self cleaning coatings on Lafeme toilet bowls, constant cleaning becomes almost redundant.
Lafeme cisternless toilets are significantly smaller in size than the traditional toilet, which have always had to incorporate a cistern or tank. The absence of the cistern gives more design freedom as this style of toilet can be positioned almost anywhere in their bathroom.
You may think that you can achieve the modern appearance of clean lines with an in-wall cistern, and you would be correct in believing so, however these toilet systems also have their limits. Water leakage within the wall cavity can be a problem, as is water discharge noise and valve noise which occurs upon the tank re-fill process. Access panels for service of the cistern must also be installed. All of this, and still only a gravity powered flush…
Tankless or cistern free toilets are steadily growing in popularity and look to be surpassing the tank toilet as Australia’s toilet of choice. Simplify life, smart choices, smart design, smart cistern free toilets.
