High Level Cistern

High level cistern only tend to get used these days where someone is looking to incorporate some period detail into their property.

The cistern is operated by a chain pull rather than a cistern lever. The high level csitern is connected to the toilet pan via a long flushpipe. This makes positioning the pan a lot easier than is the case with a close coupled toilet, where the cistern is attached directly to the toilet pan.

Most new high level cisterns use a metal flushpipe with a chrome or gold effect finish to tie-in with the rest of the bathroom design.

The toilet pans used with these type of cisterns are generally of the "H.O." design (horizontal outlet) but "P" trap and "S" trap pans can also be used although these are now less common. "S" trap toilet pans are ideal if the soil pipe exits through the floor and space is at a premium, as they are quite a compact design.

High level cisterns are still used quite often in commercial premises as they keep the internal working up above prying eyes (and hands) and so are less susceptable to vandalisation. Some cisterns are made from ruberised material that can absorb an impact without cracking in the way a china cistern would, making them a robust and reliable option.
