Bear with us while we start in an unusual way for our review of the Saniwall system – because we’re beginning with something of an art history lesson.
In 1917, the French artist Marcel Duchamp produced what is probably his most famous work of art. It is entitled ‘Fountain’, and is simply a urinal with his signature on it. Many would wonder at the idea of a urinal being a work of art, but it does raise an interesting question: can a urinal or even a toilet be as aesthetically pleasing as it is functional? Can we ever consider it to be beautiful?
This might be a bit of a jump, but the Saniwall system goes some way towards answering that question. It allows a toilet to be stylish by simply having the WC element hidden. Invest in a Saniwall system and your toilet will be one that Marcel Duchamp would be proud of!
Saniwall is a unique frame system that is ideal for suspended WCs but can be used with virtually any toilet. One of its main features is a dual flush cistern, which uses two buttons instead of one, to flush different levels of water.
One button is used for flushing solid waste (it delivers six litres of water in a flush), while the other is for liquid waste (delivering three litres per flush). This means it helps with water conservation efforts, if you are environmentally-conscious, and it is similar to toilets used in countries where such systems are the norm, such as Australia, Israel, and Singapore.
The Saniwall is especially suited to suspended, or wall hung, toilets. The wall hung toilet is ideal for saving space as there is no base. They are particularly suitable for small bathrooms. Wall hung toilets are also easy to clean as they are not attached to the floor, so you can easily wash the area around and underneath the toilet..
Saniwall also features extra inlets to take waste water from other sanitary ware such as a shower, wash basin or bidet. This enables the installation of a shower room in areas where gravity fed plumbing is difficult to install.
The Saniwall pump can move waste up to five metres vertically and 100 metres horizontally. This macerator is ideal for places where the water pressure is low or where the toilet is to be fitted below the sewer drain pipe.
Adjustable feet also allow for changing the height of the bowl, which is important for comfort.
Also included with the product are a chrome flush plate – where the two flush buttons are fitted – a stopcock and a float valve.
Overall, Saniwall is a powerful alternative to a regular macerator. Used in conjunction with a suspended WC it can make cleaning so much easier and can make a big difference to the stylishness and aesthetics of your bathroom.
