Tankless toilets are a modern option for homeowners looking for a cost-effective solution for renovating or adding a new bathroom.
Their compact and streamlined aesthetic make them a great option for smaller bathrooms. They work differently from traditional toilets, so if you’re thinking about installing one in your home or cottage, make sure you choose the right product for your needs.
With a conventional toilet, the tank sits above the bowl to allow gravity to draw water down into the tank for use when the toilet is flushed, and then re-fills with water.
A tankless toilet has no tank because it does not need to reserve water for flushing. Instead, it is connected directly to your home’s existing plumbing system so that water enters the bowl at a high pressure when the toilet is flushed, pumping away the effluent and wastewater. An electric pump built into the toilet chamber helps power the flush instead of gravity.
The biggest advantage of tankless toilets is the efficiency with which they help homeowners save water. Some models even provide a dual-flush option to reduce consumption even further, giving you a watersaving solution unmatched by conventional toilets.
Other benefits include:
- Space-saving compact, streamlined design
- Pipes can be installed inside the wall or under the floor with minimal construction
- Easy installation and minimal maintenance required
Did you know that Saniflo’s eco-friendly plumbing solutions, like the popular Sanicompact, can help homeowners save almost 35,000 litres of water per year?
The average toilet uses approximately 9.8 litres of water per flush. Assuming that each person uses four flushes per day that translates into roughly 14,300 litres per person per year. For a family of four, that’s more than 57,000 litres of water every year. Saniflo’s Sanicompact uses as little as 3.8 litres of water per flush, saving approximately 8,750 litres of water per person. For that same family of four, this would save their household approximately 35,000 litres of water per year!
The Sanicompact, along with many of Saniflo’s other plumbing solutions, is designed to be ecological throughout its lifecycle from installation to waste disposal.
The unit reduces water consumption though a contemporary, tankless design and dual-flush macerating system, making it perfect for the greenminded user.
With simple installation requirements and easy set-up, the Sanicompact is a great solution for a half-bathroom, powder room, or to convert an under-used closet into an extra bathroom.
