Environmental Benefits Of AquaClean Toilets

Did you know that the average household gets through 27.5 kilograms of toilet paper every year? A Geberit shower toilet can reduce the amount of wood used for toilet paper by 61 kilograms per annum. This equates to a tree trunk measuring 1.7 metres high and 30 centimetres in diameter.

Cleaning with water

Cleaning with water uses less water than cleaning with toilet paper. The production of toilet paper requires 2,350 litres of water per household per year. In comparison, the spray functionality of the AquaClean Mera Comfort uses just 1,500 litres. This is an annual saving of 850 litres of water, equating to almost 6 bathtubs of 150 litres each.

Saves energy and toilet paper

With a shower toilet from Geberit, you can count on high quality and low operating costs. All Geberit AquaClean models feature an economy mode. This ensures they consume no more than 0.5 watts when in standby. What’s more, this also means a household can save around 212 rolls of toilet paper a year and around £50.00.

Bathroom necessities.. from WC frames to radiator valves!

Villeroy & Boch Finion

A new bathroom can take ages to plan and get exactly right from the layout to the choice of products. Once we have a layout that works aesthetically and practically ie position of toilet reliant on soil pipe location, then we tend to focus on the ‘main’ products we’d like to include such as the bath, shower, vanity unit, WC and brassware. These products will be the ones that set the style of our bathroom, whether contemporary or traditional.

What can be equally as important, but often neglected, are the products that are necessary for function, and can sometimes add to the finished look. For example a new towel radiator will ideally need matching radiator valves. If your brassware finish is the on trend brushed brass, gold, copper or black then your basin waste, bath filler, bath waste can be supplied to match. And, if you have an exposed bottle trap then this too can be in a finish to match.






You may opt for a sleek, minimal look with a wall hung WC – UK Bathrooms has a great choice of these but again don’t forget that a wall hung WC needs a concealed cistern with a flush plate, the cistern can be hidden in a wall or purpose built boxing. We’d always recommend a reputable, quality brand for both frame and flush plate – these products should be durable and built to last.

Innovative design, quality and functionality are what you have come to expect from Villeroy & Boch and the Architectura Rimless Wall Hung Pan is testament to this.

This not only reduces the built of of germs and bacteria, but also makes it really easy to clean.

Cleanliness isn’t the only innovation on offer either, the sloped sides of the design mean that it has a more economic flush than a standard toilet too; just ¾.5 litres saving you both water and money.
