    In the final stages of remodelling the bathroom, and I’m just wondering what you pro’s recommend as a decent close-coupled loo? Had square one (Rak 600?) before, and it was so uncomfortable, so what a classic shape seat.

    Needs to have a decent flush, sick of having to flush twice.

    Any advice?

    Cheers

    You can't go wrong with the budget one offered by our hosts (or any of their competitors) https://www.screwfix.com/p/toilet-to-go-close-coupled-toilet-dual-flush-6ltr/78711
    I've now installed at least 6 of them, and they all work a treat. In fact they all flush perfectly well with first flush even though most of them are now set to 2 and 4 litre flushes (as opposed to the factory default settings of 3 and 6 litres). The only ones I didn't adjust downwards were for a soil system that needed more water to get the stuff all the way to the septic tank or sewer because the slope of the pipe was not steep enough (about 1%).
    Why pay a fortune when you don't have to?

    Can't fault them for the price, used a few of them.

    Thanks, they do look ok , the seats seem to be the main point of complaint. Do Screwfix sell a compatible soft close seat?

    Fitted a few of these in loo of seats around £30, Celmac Wirquin Woody Toilet Seat with soft close hinges.

    Decent solid seats just check the dimensions before purchase :)

    I fitted one of these https://www.bathstore.com/products/pure-back-to-wall-pan-exc-seat-2069.html in my current bathroom coupled with a geberit Kappa cistern. Not the cheapest combination, but works really well - excellent flush and the geberit cistern allows an immediate partial re-flush if you just want to put a bit more water down - no need to wait until it's full. It works so well I have gone exactly the same route in my house project except this time with a geberit Omega cistern because the kappa top plate version is discontinued. Seems identical.

    I really like geberit cisterns - they seem well engineered, and I understand that spares are always available if needed. Not cheap though and the flush plates are a bit of a rip off, but look great

    OK not close coupled - but maybe helpful info......

    Ideal standard do good quality toilets, back to the wall toilets have the advantage that the soil pipe connector is hidden giving a flush neat look :D

    Their imagine aquablade (rimless) is an excellent product and comes with a seat :)
     
  8. Back to wall would’ve been nice, but the soil pipe work is in front of the wall, so will need a 90 degree flexible pipe, and will need to box it in (see my other thread).

    Cheers

    Ps: Rusty - looks ace
