Toilets for limited mobility
Over height toilets
We can supply over height toilets, for when you need a toilet higher than standard. These are great for those with limited mobility, they’re higher and designed to be easier to get on and off.
Ambulant, wheelchair and other mobility
There are toilet suites designed for ambulant, wheelchair and other mobility issues. We can supply and install these for you, to ensure toileting needs are met for all members of our community.
Bidet Seat Installation
We can only install bidet seats and not hand held sprays, and they must be watermarked to the Australian standard WMTS-051:2016. You do not want any cross contamination from your toilet to go into your drinking water and this is the reason for the watermarking and compliance with Australian Standards.
Bidet Installation Notes
A standard installation is when you have access to the water behind the toilet and access to the toilet lid bolts from under the toilet (the bolts which hold the current toilet lid in place ).
If the water supply is inside the tank or there is no access to the seat bolts an adaptor kit or top fixing bolts will be required.
In Australia, the plumbing code mandates that bidets need to be installed by a plumber.

Frequently asked questions (FAQ’s)
Are you repairers/service agents for any particular brands?
No. This keeps us honest and able to recommend the best product for the job.
Are there particular issues with old toilets that customers need to know about when upgrading or replacing?
Toilet pans (bowls) are either S trap or P trap – this means the toilet is designed for the waste to connect to your plumbing pipes through the floor or behind through the wall. In some circumstances the waste pipe might pass through the wall on the left or the right & toilet pans that accommodate these are called “skew” pans. The simplest installation (lower cost installation) is where the new pan dimensions match the existing.
Altering the waste pipe in the floor or a tiled wall can dramatically increase the price of your installation.
Sometimes the dimensions of the toilet suites change and when you are installing a different type or brand, the footprint of where the pan sat on the floor &/or where the cistern is fastened to the wall & cosmetic touch ups (plaster wall patching, sanding painting or floor cleaning or surface repair) may be desired post installation but is not done by the plumber.
