Until recently, nearly all households in Singapore only had standard toilet bowls installed. A standard toilet features a rim around its inner pan that distributes water underneath the toilet rim when you flush. This often causes bacteria to accumulate underneath the rims which is a common toilet problem. In order to overcome this problem, rimless toilet bowls were produced by many of the top toilet bowl manufacturers worldwide.
This article highlights the key differences between a rimless and a standard toilet bowl. Also included are some tips and recommendations on how to choose the right toilet bowl for you and how to choose the correct service provider for toilet bowl installations.
What Are Standard Toilet Bowls?

Standard toilet bowls feature a rim around the edges of their seat that hides the rim jet which releases the water for flushing. They were designed this way in order to eliminate the possibility of water splashing out. Although round-shaped toilet bowls are the most common, there are toilets made in other shapes such as a square or rectangle.
One mistake to avoid when getting a new toilet bowl is picking models that are hard to clean. Models such as an elongated toilet bowl may be cheaper. In the long run however, they can cause more harm than good. This is because bacteria, grime, and other harmful microbes can accumulate in the rims if the toilet is not thoroughly cleaned after every use.
Although standard toilet bowls are harder to clean, that doesn’t mean they’re unreliable in terms of performance and efficiency. The Baron W-203A 2-Piece Toilet Bowl is a 2-piece toilet bowl that is known for its value for money provided the toilet bowl installation was done properly. It is a washdown toilet bowl featuring a slow-moving seat cover and is made from high-grade ceramics. Additionally, it is water efficient and budget-friendly.
What Are Rimless Toilet Bowls?

Many home appliance brands in Singapore have been increasing their supply of rimless toilet bowls in light of the fact that most people find it difficult to clean standard toilets. Since there is no rim, bacteria can no longer hide. This is because the surface area of the bowl is now exposed.
Another advantage of installing a rimless toilet bowl is that it is significantly better at saving water than older toilet types, which is among the features to look out for when buying a toilet bowl. Rimless toilets don’t have hidden rim jets compared to a standard toilet. As such, cleaning is quicker and more effective. Furthermore, a rimless toilet utilizes the force of gravity when flushing. This is so that the water is released into the toilet bowl at a much greater force and speed. As a result, water is conserved when flushing both liquid and solid waste.
The Rubine Piz Fora PF-106S10 1 Piece Toilet Bowl has many of the advantages that rimless toilet bowls provide. It has a water efficiency rating of 2-3 ticks since it only consumes around 3.50 L of water for a full flush and 2.50 L for a reduced flush. It is a washdown toilet bowl and is made from high-quality materials such as vitreous china and urea. Not only that, it is affordable as well.
