Going green with water saving toilets

Water is a very precious resource, some parts of our country suffer from a water shortage in the summer months, which may surprise many as it seems to rain so often. With this in mind and to quote a saying by the Duke of Edinburgh, it is nonsense to use a gallon of water to flush down a pint of urine!

The first of the three toilets we feature is the Vitra Serenada Closed Coupled WC Suite with Soft Close Seat, we include in our unbeatable price the toilet pan itself together with the cistern, toilet seat & cover. The cistern is a top flush and has the dual function and the design has a low key country style, but this has been cleverly adapted to reflect today’s contemporary lifestyle.

Vitra Serenada Closed Coupled WC Suite with Soft Close Seat

International bathroom designers and manufacturers Ideal Standard have a stylish toilet which we feature, this is the Concept Cube Close Coupled WC Suite and it includes 4/2.6 litre water saving dual flush cistern and choice of seats. Space saving was in the mind of the clever design team headed by Robin Levien, a Royal Designer for Industry, so we can guarantee that style is not lacking. The package comprises the pan, dual flush cistern, and a soft close seat cover, and is finished in vitreous china, incidentally guaranteed for a lifetime, white to match any décor. This pretty WC suite is highly efficient with a push button with dual action for either a 4 or a 2.6 litres of water each time.

Ideal Standard Concept Cube Close Coupled WC Suite

Finally we look at the Roca Senso Compact ECO Close Coupled Suite and this suite is perfect for those who may have limited space, the Senso makes maximum use of space and Suite has been specially designed to fit into almost any bathroom, no matter how small. The package includes pan, cistern and standard closing toilet seat with cover, but we can also supply this with a soft close seat which can be found in the drop down selection at our web page. With a dual flush of either a miserly 4.5 or 3 litre flush, the Roca is a green solution for your bathroom, this stunning toilet with its soft square styling is particularly practical for compact bathrooms.

Villeroy & Boch ViClean Electronic Bidet Toilet Seat

A great new product has just been added to our website; the Villeroy & Bosch ViClean Electronic Bidet Toilet Seat. The toilet seat is only compatible with the V&B Subway 2.0 Wall Hung WC, so we have put together a handy package which incorporates the Subway pan, seat, frame and a choice of flush plate all from Villeroy and Boch, thus ensuring that the installation is easily completed with added savings too!

Villeroy & Bosch have thought of everything with this remarkable new product, the water temperature is fully adjustable with five different settings, the seat incorporates a warm air dryer with five temperature settings, the seat is heated for added comfort and it also has a night time orientation light incorporated. There is a remote control which allows the settings to be determined and this also operates the soft closing of the seat and lid.

Two models of the ViClean are offered at our web pages, the ViCleanU which is the high tech version and the ViClean L, which is slightly more minimalistic, but one which offers a balance between aesthetics and functionality. Both of these options still give the user the ultimate experience of comfort and hygiene in one complete package.

The Adagio is also insulated against condensation, so you will no longer see unsightly water around the toilet area. Our discounted price for this item includes all the fixing brackets and flush pipe need for a neat efficient toilet system.

The jury has placed the Grohe Company into the top three shortlisted for the “Resource Efficiency” 2014 special award.
