High and low level toilet buying guide

Posted by Adam Chard in Buying Guides | 5 years ago 2 min read

When you want to create a beautiful bathroom with a truly classic style, you can’t do better than choose a high or low level toilet as part of your suite.

These two designs epitomise the traditional looks of Edwardian or Victorian bathrooms. This guide will give you a quick look at the high and low level toilets available at Victoria Plum, and provide some advice on installing one in your bathroom.

What is a high or low level toilet?

High level toilet

This is the ultimate in traditional style, with the cistern positioned high up on the wall behind the pan, with an old-fashioned pull chain flush. The cistern is connected to the pan via a long stainless steel pipe.

Low level toilet

This is a similar design to the high level version, but the cistern is much lower down and features a handle flush system. What makes it different to a close coupled toilet is that the connecting pipe is still a visible feature.

Styles of high and low level toilets

All our high and low level toilets are designed to complement a traditional style bathroom, and are carefully detailed to reflect a classic look.

The Camberley high level toilet gives you a high level cistern with metalwork brackets and a stainless steel pipe, as well as the elegant pull chain flush. You also get a solid oak seat to add to the traditional look and luxurious feel.

For a slightly more understated look, the Camberley low level toilet provides a beautiful addition to a traditional bathroom. It features an elegantly styled cistern with handle flush, and a stainless steel downpipe.
