That is a question, which is usually asked by modern customers. If you want to get an answer it is recommended to discover the construction of your toilet as thoroughly as it is possible.
Nowadays when there are a lot of models, people often choose a so-called monoblock structure, in which the cistern and the bowl are represented like one unit. This type has many advantages. – First of all, installing it, you won’t have any leakage risks. And it looks rather harmoniously.
However, the monoblock requires a large space, also in case of cistern or bowl problems you will have to dismantle and replace the entire structure.
Another variant will be suitable for the owners of large houses or apartments. – In this case you can set a toilet combined with a bidet. Manufacturers offer ready-made kits, which are made in a single design, and you can only choose one that will fit into the interior of your bathroom.
If the external dimensions are clear, let’s discover the bowl. This structure should be considered carefully, as the shape of the bowl has a direct impact on the water flush as well as on the comfort using.
Disc bowl is a somewhat outdated variant; however, it is indispensable for the owners of cats. Why? – The matter is that your pet can also use it. However, it is not very comfortable because of smell spreading.

Cast iron cistern on a long pipe is rather popular and can be seen by everybody. Inside these modern models of toilets have the latest equipment. Another type of cistern fastening is with the help of the collar, when the cistern is hung over the toilet. These cisterns are usually made of plastic.
But the most reliable cistern is considered the one which is mounted directly to the bowl. In this case the water is supplied to the tank from below or from the side.
One of the most important qualities of a cistern is its quiet. According to the specialists’ point of view it will better if in the reservoir the water organizes a fountain, and does not flow from the top.
Talking about the cistern volume, we can’t but mention that the optimal volume is about 6-8 liters. It means that for a flush you will spend at least 6 liters of water. Also it is very convenient to use a flushing mechanism equipped with two buttons. In this case you will be able to regulate the flow from 2 and up to 4 liters. This can significantly save on the water bill. At the same time the water in the bowl refreshes and that is why there is no any smell.
