Toilet, urinal and bidet sizes

Toilets: Toilets are made with flush tanks or flush valves. Those with flush valves are generally used in commercial applications because they require a larger water supply line. Most residential toilets are of the flush tank type, and these are available with integral tanks (one-piece) , as well as the more common separate tank (two-piece) type.g

Dual-Flush Toilets: They operate with two water use settings: a full 1.6 gallon flushes for solids and a reduced – volume flush often 0.8-1.1 gallon for liquids only.
Toilets are available in a range of finishes, colors and styles depending on the variety of tank types and flushing systems. They are most commonly available in round bowl or elongated bowl styles. Toilets seats are also available in a range of shapes to fit the various types of bowls.

Urinals: Urinals are most commonly used in commercial applications. They use less water than toilets and can be quite convenient as well. They are receptacles attached and plumbed to the wall. The height also varies. Some urinals are fitted with a sanitary lid, making them more appealing for residential users.q

Bidets: Bidets are wash basins for partial bathing. Models are available with vertical or horizontal spray for water flow. Often they are available in styles, colors and finishes that are similar to toilets.
