Reviews & Buying Guides

Featured image - Wall mounted toilets

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

After consulting a couple of my colleagues and digging through the internet, I found some pros and cons o. However, during the time of scrolling through different forums and websites, I’m amused to see so many controversies raised around the mounting model.

Here, I present to you my proudest collections.

1. TOTO Aquia CT418FG No.01

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 water closet offers an elongated bowl and skirted design, along with our powerful Dual-Max flushing system. This wall hung model saves valuable space in smaller bathrooms.

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

Another great feature of this wall hung model 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 and the depth of the bowl is super DEEP.

2. American Standard Glenwall 2093.100

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

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

The thing that I don't like is the visible water tank. Don’t get me wrong, I think Glenwall’s functions are on point. Yes, it makes fixing it a lot easier. However, in my mind I still think a hanging toilets should always hide its water tank in the concrete. But to be fair, this carrier design makes this model less likely to have major problem.

The most criticized part of this model is the flushing system. Some claim this wall hung water closet has to flush twice to wash the remaining content away, but I say this is nonsense - I have not had any problems, 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
  • Wall Hung Design

What We Don't Like:

  • Water Consumption (1.6 GPF)

3. KOHLER Veil K-6299-0

With its concealed tank and minimal footprint, Kohler 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 bathroom.

The tank and mounting hardware are out of sight, hidden behind the concrete, which helps make this model 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 that 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 dimensions stuff, I know.

What We Like:

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

What We Don't Like:

  • Plastic cover sometimes falls off

Wall Mounted Toilets: The Good And The Bad 

“But… toilet master, what are the benefits of the wall hung water closet?”

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

Here are the pros and cons in no particular order:

The Best Wall Mounted Toilet meme

Pros:

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

Cons:

  • Price - Wall hung toilets are generally more expensive than traditional one-piece and two-piece toilets
  • Possible to have loosen bolts - It’s possible that they will loosen from the wall after a long period of use. However, the sanitary ware 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 hung model means putting a valve behind the concrete, it requires opening up the solid material, which means splurging more money. I would strongly suggest if you are looking for having a wall hung toilet, have it when you are renovating a new house. It will be much easier for both.

Conclusion - Who's The Winner?

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

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

I get you.

You want the top wall hung water closet. But also, let's consider saving space into the equation. Why? Because having a bowl equipped with a big-ass water tank sucks. It sucks balls. Not only does the tank takes up space, but it’s also harder to clean.

Out of three...?
