I have a small downstairs loo so to save space I'm thinking of getting one of these



The vast majority seem to come from Victoria Plumb/Victorian Plumbing and similar online places. I've bought stuff from there before which was OK but I'd prefer a well known brand if possible.

Anyone have any experience of these toilets/sink combos, are they a good idea?

And do any of the decent brands do one?

I fitted one in a WC which is too small for a separate sink.

TBH, the basin is too small to wash hands properly so we end up using handgel instead.

Just wash your hands in the toilet wink

Could even connect the cistern to the hot water feed if you want warm water to wash your hands biggrin

I don't have one of those but I do have a full bathroom suite from Victoria plum, ( when it was called Victoria Plumb)

Very high quality, despite having no branding. No problems with any of it or the delivery/customer service

Make it a themed loo, put some bars on the window and it'll make people feel they're back inside.

What about those half in the wall basins? If there is a stud wall available.

There are some very natty little cloakroom basins, which with the right tap still allow good hand washing.

With the above loo ones I always wonder how reach them. Presumably straddling the loo?

You could pee in the sink too, it's like a playground for drunken people. You could spew and pee both at the same time.
I did once inadvertently pick the wrong pipe and plumb a loo into the hot water supply, we called it a 'Hot flush' before swapping it back before anyone noticed.

If you have had a particularity large "jobbie" that has blocked the loo, how does the usual disposal route of shoving it bit by bit into the sink / shower / bath work here? If you shove it bit by bit into the sink does it end up in the cistern underneath and when you flush just get recycled back into the toilet bowl?

So effectively a manual maceration system using the sink plug hole?

Haha, some good ideas there.

Actually the basin in that picture is bigger than the one I've got at the moment, and has the advantage that I don't have to run pipework to it.

I've also bought some stuff from Victorian Plumbing and it wasn't bad, some of the edges on the ceramic was a bit wavy but apart from that it was OK.

I think those sinks are cold only, but not a massive issue as you're not washing your hands long enough for the water to get warm anyway

I've seen these, where does the basin drain to? The cistern ready for the next flush, or straight into the toilet pan and down the u-bend, or do you still need to run a drain to the basin?

Just wondered what happens if someone uses a lot of hand soap, or say for instance a painter decides to clean his paint brushes in that basin, do you end up with a soapy or painty toilet.

Biggest problem I'd have thought would be always having to reach over the toilet pan to wash your hands.
