1. What Is a Back to Wall Toilet Unit? 

A back to wall toilet is a space-saving, contemporary solution. 

Unlike in a standard toilet, the pan (bowl) in a back to wall toilet is secured firmly against the wall surface, while the cistern (tank) is hidden within a furniture unit or inside the wall itself. The cistern is accessible via a flush panel fitted on the furniture unit or wall.

In a standard toilet, the drain pipe is in plain view. But in a back to wall toilet, it is hidden, presenting the bathroom with a neat and tidy look.

Thus, only the toilet bowl is visible in a back to wall toilet, whereas the toilet bowl, cistern, and drain pipe are visible in a standard toilet. 

The user experience is also different. While the user will sit flush against the wall or the furniture unit in a back to wall toilet, the user’s back will rest against the cistern in a standard toilet.

2. What Are the Advantages of Choosing a Back to Wall WC Unit?

The WC (Water Closet) unit is a furniture unit that accommodates a concealed cistern. The unit looks minimalist, stylish, and modern. It’s a great alternative when the cistern cannot be integrated into the bathroom wall.

The major advantage of a back to wall WC unit is that with the flush tank or cistern and drain pipe concealed, the toilet looks neat and tidy. The WC unit looks like a furniture piece and decoratively covers up the cistern and drain pipe.

You can also use the top surface of the WC unit to keep some bathroom essentials.

3. Does a Back to Wall Toilet Unit Include a Cistern?

A back to wall WC toilet unit includes a cistern and toilet seat. But if you buy a standalone back to wall toilet, a soft-close toilet seat is the only accessory included.

In a standalone back to wall toilet, the cistern is typically supplied separately.

4. Are There Water-Saving and Eco-Friendly Options Available for These Units?

Yes, water-saving and eco-friendly options are available for back to wall toilet units.

While standard toilets use nine or more litres of water per flush, a low-flush or dual-flush model is a water-saving version that flushes less water (6 litres) down the toilet bowl. 

The Patello White Back to Wall 800mm Combination Unit and Patello Grey Back to Wall 1000mm Combination Unit are two models that come with a 3/6 litre dual-flush cistern. 

The dual-flush concealed cistern in these eco-friendly toilets is equipped with a 2-option water-saving mechanism. The ecosystem flush or half flush uses 3 litres, and the full flush system uses 6 litres.
