The Best Wall Mounted Toilet – 2017 Review

The Best Wall Mounted Toilet

If you go deep into the world of toilets, you will often find some interesting toilets. For example, most people in Europe uses a wall mounted toilet (or wall hung toilet) - a type of toilet installed on the wall, which surprisingly is tankless. Admittedly, the very first time I encountered a wall hung toilet, I had some doubts.

After consulting a couple of my colleagues and digging through the internet, I find the pros and cons of this type of toilet. However, during the time of scrolling through different forums and websites, I’m amused to see so many controversies raised around the wall mounted toilet.

“But… toilet master, what are the benefits of the wall mounted toilet?”

“Alright young grasshopper, I’m here to answer your grand question.”

​Wall Mounted Toilets: The Good And The Bad 

Here are the pros and cons in no particular order:

Pros:

  • Easy to clean - The wall mounted toilet does not attach to the floor, hence there is no need to scrub behind the bowl.
  • Small in size - With a tankless design, wall mounted toilets are great for saving space. A wall hung toilet can easily fit into a corner that traditional toilets can’t.
  • Sharp in design - Although they appeared at least 30 years ago, they are still considered the coolest toilet ever.
  • Special function - Most of the time, wall mounted toilet equipped with the latest technology like dual flush or bidets.

Cons:

  • Price - They are generally more expensive than traditional one-piece and two-piece toilets
  • Possible to loosen from the wall - It’s possible they will loose from the wall after long period of use. However, the wall hung toilet industry claims they can carry up to 880 lbs. In my personal experience I’ve never seen one break with proper usage.
  • Installation service - This is a tricky one. Since installing a wall mounted toilet means putting a valve into your wall, it requires opening up the wall, which means means more money. I will strongly suggest if you are looking for having a wall mounted toilet, have it when you are building a new house. It will be much easier for both.

“Master...your title is click bait and misleading, you have not describe any toilet at all.”

“Patience young apprentice. The knowledge of toilets is wide and deep. Here, I present to you my proudest collections.”

1. Toto CT418FGNo.01 Aquia Wall-Hung Dual-Flush Toilet, 1.6-GPF and 0.9-GPF Cotton

If Mercedes and Lexus teamed up together to make a toilet, this would be it…

Do I have to say more about TOTO? The brand itself stands for quality, and so does CT418 Aquia. This sleek and modern wall-hung toilet offers an elongated bowl and skirted design, along with our powerful Dual-Max flushing system. This wall-hung toilet saves valuable space in smaller bathrooms.

CT418 makes the water tank accessible through front flush control panel. You can remove anything through the door. Importantly, very rarely you will have to to open the valve, except some clumsy plumber accidentally dropping a screw or nail into it during installation (happened to me once…).

Another great feature of this wall mounted toilet is the dual max flushing system, which easily carries away all your feces with a low consumption of 0.9 or 1.6 GPF.

The bowl is made by vitreous china material so the cleaning process will be super easy

What We Like:

  • Dual-Max Flushing System
  • Universal Height
  • Optional Pairing with DuoFit In-Wall Tank System

What We Don't Like:

  • Pricey

2. American Standard 2093.100.020 Glenwall Pressure Assisted Elongated Wall-Mounted Toilet, White

I’ve handled numerous toilets through my career and at this point of my life, I can almost see American Standard as my family…

The American Standard Glenwall wall mounted toilet is attached to a piece of metal making it stick firmly to the wall. It has the standard 1.6 gallons of water per flush and a bowl height of 14.5 inches.

The things that I don't like is the water tank. Don’t get me wrong, I think Glenwell’s function are on point. But the water tank hanging outside of the wall is weird. Yes, it makes fixing it a lot easier, however, in my mind I still think a wall hung toilet should always hide its water tank into the wall.

The most criticized part of this toilet is the flushing system. Some claim they have to flush twice to wash the remaining content away, but I say this is nonsense - I have not had any problem considering that it holds 1.6 gallons per flush - powerful enough to clean every bit of your waste.

What We Like:

  • Pressure-assisted siphon jet action
  • Speed Connect™ tank/bowl coupling system
  • Sleek design

What We Don't Like:

  • Water Consumption (1.6 GPF)

3. KOHLER K-6299-0 Veil Wall-Hung Elongated Toilet Bowl, White

With its concealed tank and minimal footprint, Veil can save up to 12 inches of coveted bathroom space over floor-mounted toilets.

What I like is its clean, sleek design. Perfect to fit any modern style contemporary bathrooms.

The tank and mounting hardware are out of sight, hidden behind the wall, which helps make the toilet look sleek and seamless. The raised bowl makes cleaning underneath it easy.

From my past experience, the plastic cover panels will wear off as time goes by - not a big deal, but it sure can be irritating like a scratch on your back you can never reach.

The bowl height is at 13.8 inches high and comes with the dual flush system technology - options of 0.8 or 1.6 gallons per flush. Boring stuff, I know.

What We Like:

  • Compact elongated bowl
  • Sleek, seamless look
  • Reveal® Quiet-Close™ with Grip-Tight seat

What We Don't Like:

  • Plastic cover sometimes falls off

Conclusion -  The Best Wall Hung Toilet...?

“So, Shi Fu...what is the best wall mounted toilet?”

“Yes, it is time for you to know the best wall mounted toilet,” I reply while stroking my imaginary long beard.

Out of three...?

TOTO - CT418FGNo.01


TOTO has battled it out and came out on top. Relive the glory by sitting on this throne with the victor.

Amazing design and great function. CT418 has the strong flush and the convenience to sweep the floor. Every part of this model is sleek and surreal. It means getting your hands on this baby is a smart choice.

I love wall mounted toilets even more than bidet toilets (well, they are technically the same). But I have a confession to make.

I wish I can recommend more types of wall mounted toilet, like Gerber 20-021 Maxwell. Terry on Terry love forum suggest this model to anyone asking on the forum, and I 100% agree with this lovely old man. However, the big boss (which I can't talk about) doesn’t have this baby in it. In this very moment, there aren’t a lot of well designed wall toilets which isn’t really ideal for both of us.

I will leave you with the following video on how to install how top wall hung toilet - TOTO Aquia.​
