Knowing everything about Grohe wall-hung toilets is useful because they are widespread in the market and deservedly so in demand. But Euro Ceramic, White Bau Ceramic and other models have specific features that are worth understanding. Additionally, it is worth examining the choice of gaskets for such equipment and other installation features.

Staying in a bathroom is an absolutely necessary part of every person's life. And within a year, contact with the toilet takes at least 30-40 hours. And in many cases, even more time. Therefore, it is worth paying attention to the comfortable and well-thought-out Grohe wall-hung toilet bowls, which add harmony to the bathroom. The peculiarity of suspended structures is associated with the fact that they do not have a support block.
A bowl of sanitary ware seems to float above the floor, attached to the wall from the stern. The water tank and other parts of the structure that usually spoil the view are located behind a fake wall. As a result, the bathroom becomes as elegant as possible. You should not be afraid of destruction and fall of the toilet - after all, it rests on a strong steel installation attached to the floor or to the wall.
The tank resembles a rectangle in shape, it is also fixed to the frame and is equipped with a special hatch that allows manipulation in the event of a malfunction.
An important part of the product is, of course, the flush button. Despite its apparent simplicity, it is a relatively complex system. It must transmit mechanical force as reliably and efficiently as possible. The toilet itself is supplied without a support leg. These are the basic elements that are required during installation.
Attention: fixing the toilet directly on the wall, without installation, is almost impossible and unreliable. The corresponding profile is coated with a paint with enhanced anti-corrosion properties. The frame element is designed for heavy load. The usual bearing capacity is 400-500 kg. Sometimes it reaches 700-800 kg.
Block installations are wall-mounted. They are only suitable for fixing the toilet bowl to a solid base. In the frame version, it is meant to be fixed to the floor and to the wall. The height of the frame is selected according to the parameters of the bathroom. This solution is ideal for any wall material.
The Euro Ceramic suspended toilet is equipped with a bowl of 0.445 m. Its seating part is equipped with a well-thought-out microlift. The product is traditional white. The distance between the axles for attaching the stud is 1.8 cm. The fittings are made of stainless steel.
Hanging toilets can also be considered a good alternative:
Bau ceramic (size 0.368X0.531X0.410 m, with microlift and quick-release seat)
Essence Ceramic (with microlift seat, completely invisible fasteners, coated with antibacterial glaze)
Cube Ceramic (with washing the entire perimeter of the bowl, on the basis of sanitary porcelain, with a completely hidden fastening, size 0.565X0.37X0.405 m, classic white color)
It is necessary to pay attention to the push-button flush system. In the usual version, there is only one button, which initiates the release of all the accumulated water. Bipartite keys are more economical. One part is responsible for the release of a limited volume of fluid, usually 50%. An even more advanced solution has a "start-stop" option: by successive touches you can start and stop the drain, influencing the flow of liquid independently.
Hanging toilets of the budget class are made of high-quality sanitary ware. The external glaze coating is distinguished by its ability to repel dirt, so you can wash such plumbing with any disinfectant. But the better solution is undoubtedly sanitary porcelain. It is distinguished by increased strength and is very smooth, it always looks elegant. In any case, you need to look at which models are suitable for the system, and which gaskets they need.
The size of the toilet bowl is most important to consider for small-sized housing, where large plumbing does not fit. In this case, it is necessary to choose compact models, the length of which does not exceed 0.54 m. However, medium modifications still dominate in the assortment of the German supplier, from 0.55 to 0.6 m.
For people with disabilities and owners of spacious bathrooms, it is best to choose toilets with a length of 0.61-0.7 m.
The basic installation is most often included in the delivery set. Along with it should go transitional elements, fasteners, pipes and flush buttons. It is very useful to immediately find out if this is so. Sound-absorbing material must be supplied. Sequence of work:
