There are a lot of benefits to a toilet constructed in one piece. They are very strong, and less likely to break or to leak as there are no seals connecting the bowl and tank. They can be made in a more compact design, allowing a deluxe product in smaller spaces. Additionally, one piece toilets often feature completely skirted bowls that hide often unsightly and difficult to clean exposed trapways.
The innovative solution for toilet maintenance and convenience.
Caroma has raised the game with their trademarked Smart GlazeTM. Powered by Nano Technology. Nano technology dramatically alters the make-up of the bowl glaze surface giving it a micro thin layer of nano-particles that repel water, minerals and waste so the bowl area will stay cleaner and fresher longer.
Smart Glaze features:
- greater hygienic properties making fixtures easier to clean and to keep clean longer
- Alters the surface of vitreous china with nanoscale technology
- Repels liquids and oils and inhibits the spread of germs and bacteria
Soft close seats work exactly as it sounds - they close softly and slowly. The benefits of a soft close seat are:
- they are whisper quiet, providing greater privacy
- they prevent the startling banging of a standard seat, and prevent other home occupants from being started awake during late night bathroom visits
- they prevent small children from catching their fingers under a slamming lid
Caroma discovered long ago that featuring varying flush volumes on toilets is the perfect solution for saving water, and maintaining top performance. We intuitively understand that you need more water to efficiently dispose of solid waste than you do for liquid waste. Caroma perfected the technology that allows you to make the choice. Use the full flush volume of water when required, and when it isn't needed, choose the half flush to save water.
Skirted bowls are featured on premium toilet suites as they cover the often unsightly exposed trapway of a toilet bowl.
Benefits of a skirted bowl include:
- they feature a beautiful clean design
- they are much easier to clean, as dirt and debris collects on an exposed trapway
A two piece toilet is crafted in two pieces. The tank and the bowl are separate items that are connected during installation to form a complete toilet suite.
Benefits of a two piece toilet design are:
generally less expensive than a one piece toilet
lighter and easier to install
It is unique in that Smart Connect allows for installation into either a 10" or 12" rough-in, and anything in between!
Often what starts as a 12" rough in is altered during construction with the addition of tile or other boards, making a standard 12" rough-in toilet impossible to install. Smart Connect features an offset adaptor that fits over top of the rough in, and depending on the positioning of the adaptor, you can allow different rough in sizes.
Benefits of Smart Connect include:
- allows for installation with 10" - 12" rough in
- allows you to remove the bowl without touching the wax ring, as the wax ring remains covered and protected by the offset adaptor
- NO drilling into the floor is required
- beautiful - the bolt holes are small and discreet
With the press of a button, the entire seat will lift off for quick and easy cleaning.
360 degree rotation for a faucet is handy, but not desirable in all situations. Having an optional mechanism that can limit the rotation to 140 degrees may be preferable in situations such as kitchen island installations to prevent water spillage.
When indicated with this icon, the faucet features both options. You choose if you would like the faucet head to be able to spin in complete circular motion, or if you would prefer that it be locked at 140 degree.
The faucet spout is designed to rotate 360 degrees.
By pressing a button the faucet spray can alternate between a steady or aerated water stream.
Most people have experienced using a pull down kitchen faucet the doesn't work well. The spray head pulls out, but doesn't easily glide back into place. This is the reason behind creating magnetic docking.
The pull down spray head of a kitchen faucet easily reattaches to the spout with the aid of a magnetic docking system.. The power of the magnetic does the work, by pulling the spray head in and clicking it into place.
A pull down kitchen faucet is pretty much what you would expect. The kitchen spray head is attached to the spout by a flexible hose that can be 'pulled down' or extended from the faucet body, allowing the user to direct the water wherever it is needed. Pull down kitchen faucets are great for cleaning the sink, rinsing dishes or filling pots and buckets.
A kitchen faucet with a steady, solid water stream. (No aerated option).
A one piece toilet is crafted in a solid piece, rather than separately as a bowl and tank that are joined together during installation. One piece toilets are stronger, heavier and generally accepted as premium products.
With so many different basin shapes and depths, it is really difficult to know if the faucet you choose will match up well to the basin that you've chosen. If it doesn't align properly, every time you turn the faucet on, you can get a splash back of water, making hand washing a challenge. fluid swivel aerators prevents this by allowing you to redirect the water by pushing the aerator from side to side.
A pressure balancing valve offers the safety of scald protection, and the fluid valve has the extra safety feature of the maximum temperature setting, so you can set the highest temperature available for more vulnerable users.
A non diverting valve means that the valve itself cannot divert water from one shower/bath element to another. (Although a non diverting valve can be used with diverting components such as a diverting tub spout that allows for more than one component to be installed using the non diverting valve. So, for example, a shower head and a tub spout are commonly powered by a non diverting valve. The water typically is directed from the valve to the tub spout, and then can be diverted to the shower head by lifting the diverter knob on the tub spout.
