5 Advantages of Rimless Toilets Over Traditional Toilet Designs

Rimless toilet design has fast become the norm in new toilets. With benefits including easier cleaning, added hygiene and overall superior flushing, this game changing toilet feature will make a huge difference in your new bathroom.

What’s the difference between a traditional toilet and a rimless toilet?

Traditional toilets have a rim around the inner pan of the toilet where when you flush, the water distributes from underneath the toilet rim to dispose of waste.

Rimless toilets on the other hand, flush water around the whole pan with a superior flushing mechanism that removes the need for a rim altogether.

The five advantages of rimless toilets

#1: Hygiene is built in

Hard-to-reach areas of a traditional toilet pan are breeding grounds for germs to hide.

Without this rim and with the advanced flushing system washing those germs away, rimless toilets provide a more hygienic day-to-day experience.

#2: They're easy to clean

We know that as much as you love your new bathroom, cleaning the toilet is never an enjoyable task.

Rimless toilets are quick and easy to clean because those tricky nooks aren’t there for grime and germs to build up.

#3 Superior flushing 

Rimless toilets use a direct flushing system which distributes water around the pan more effectively. This means that each flush is more efficient. 

Take your water consumption to the next level with a toilet that combines both rimless technology and double vortex technology as seen in the American Standard Heron Toilet Suite, reducing litres of water required while also providing a powerful flush.
