True Water Closet
The True Water Closet
Blue Terra Design did a complete restoration of this water damaged bathroom. The restoration included reproduction and installation of cabinets, trim, and installation of new tile. We also installed a true water closet in this bathroom.
A true water closet is a ceramic sanitary product used in a toilet. These types of toilets are hygienic and easy to clean. Normally, the true water closet will have a seat height of 400 mm (16 inches) from the floor. The seat height will not always be the same, but 400 mm is a standard height that you can use when designing a true water closet. A true water closet is connected to a tank to clean the waste. The tank can be made of ceramic or plastic. The water box is also known as a European water box. Most plastic seats and covers are attached with water closets. The minimum shelf life is approx. 10,000. Seats and covers are usually polypropylene or polyurethane.
Production Of True Water Closet
Blue Terra Design manufactured the water closet at out shop. The material used to make the baths included sand, feldspar, and clay. The desired design of the water closet was made out of the Paris cast iron. Once we finished the design, we gave it time to dry. After that, we sprayed the colored enamel onto the piece and it was sent into firing. A water closet is ceramic at over 1200 degrees Celsius (2192 Fahrenheit).
