Here are the strengths and weaknesses of Wall mounted WC:

INSTALLING A WALL HUNG WC - STRENGTHS

Saves space-: The extra space of the tank and the floor space underneath the seat gets saved if wall mounted WC is used. The tank is flushed in the walls and the area below the seat is also clear.

Elegant, neat and sleek-: With the evolution of technology, the way of styling bathrooms has also changed and so have the fixtures. The new Wall mounted WC gives a rich and modern look to your bathroom without the display of the wall tank and the different shapes trap underneath the seat.

Convenient-: The wall mounted WC can be altered and fixed at different heights keeping in mind the comfort of the user. If someone prefers the seat height to be high, then the WC can be fixed at that particular height.

The ease-: Wall mounted WCs are easy to clean. There isn’t anything underneath the seat or the water tank outside the wall that would require regular cleaning.
