The toilet is the main component that determines a comfortable bathroom. Each toilet has different features. For this reason, finding a toilet that fits your budget and lifestyle is important. In addition to appearance, what else should be considered when choosing a toilet?
Yes, its flushing system. There are two types of flushing systems that are commonly used, washdown and siphonic.
In a washdown system, water is immediately sucked down immediately after the flushing button is pressed. Usually followed by a little noise when the water is sucked down. The washdown toilet has a small water surface area in the bowl that is located deep inside. This toilet also has not too wide size and is suitable for those of you who are dynamic and like the minimalist concept.
The way it works in the siphonic system, first the water rotates in a spiral shape in the toilet bowl, before finally entering the drain. It is almost noiseless. For those who are concerned with comfort and often wake up at night and don’t want to disturb other family members, a siphonic toilet would be the right choice!
In general, the washdown system is used in dual-flush water-efficient models, while the siphonic system is often found in luxury one-piece models with a single flush. This feature distinguishes the price of the two types of toilets. The price of a toilet with a siphonic system tends to be higher than a washdown system toilet.
