At least you can clean up after yourself compared to all the other toilet pictures.

I'm not sure if you're bragging or lamenting.

As a Brit living in Europe I'm really confused about why things like cisterns, which often need access for small repairs are tiled in.

I had to take down and then rebuild a tiled wall to replace a rubber washer last week.

Pretty sure they firing shots at the person from the states who posted their trashy bathroom I'm their 800$ apartment from yesterday or Thursday.

Thanks for filling me in. Context definitely helps.

Edit: just found that post. What a depressing bathroom. Imagine going there to get clean.


ElleRisalo t1_j9z73mj wrote

Ya it is brutal condition. Worse then mine, and I thought mine was dumpy at 650 CAD, seeing that person bathroom certainly made me feel better about mine. Seeing this one however makes me feel worse.


Robscoe604 t1_ja8pvhw wrote

where the hell do you live that you pay 650 canadian rent. In Vancouver you’d get a closet for that much


ElleRisalo t1_ja91l2n wrote

Bach Apt in Halton Hills (GTA ish)

It kind of is a closet.


Robscoe604 t1_ja91o2y wrote

serious i thought GTA had crazy rent too?!


ElleRisalo t1_ja92kww wrote

Not as bad out on the edges. Closer you get to Toronto or the bigger cities the quicker it spikes though.

For comparison where I work in Milton for same size room, in a bit nicer of a building I'd be looking at 1400+ Utilities.

I said fuck that, chose a place in the sticks for 550 all inclusive...what about 7 years ago now?

As a european living in the UK, I'm glad I don't have to use those plastic toilet refreshers anymore and can just drop in a tablet into the cistern.

As a kid, Germany used to have old fashioned toilets like the ones in the UK, but they switched in the 00's to those at some point.


toolix t1_j9z4oh5 wrote

As a european who has just remodeled the bathroom. I chose an old style one as well, but from what i heard, there are rarely any issues with the built in one's and you can access the cistern behind the buttons. I chose the older style since I think it looks better and it is also much cheaper.

They're in the UK now too in 'modern' flats up and down the country. My flat in ocean village southampton had this exact toilet.

So glad to be in my newly bought 1900s house with a decent toilet and a wood burning stove :)

As a European that used to live in the UK, your bathrooms are the weirdest.

  • Two separate taps because in the past the hot water was not drinkable.

  • No wall sockets expect for some electric shaver socket if you are lucky.

  • carpet on bathroom floor.

  • electric hot water shower (no wall sockets but an electric boiler warning up the water on a damp environment is somehow fine)

  • no bidet.

Not everyone likes mixer taps.

It prevents a lot of serious or lethal accidents. It's a building regulation.

>carpet on bathroom floor.

This is very rare, I've only seen it once.

>electric hot water shower (no wall sockets but an electric boiler warning up the water on a damp environment is somehow fine)

They're specially isolated so safe.

>no bidet.

That depends on where you are in Europe, they're relatively rare in the UK though I've seen plenty of places with them, not usually modern builds though.

Everyone likes mixed taps lol. No one ever asked for separate taps to mix in the sink.


eugene20 t1_ja36h2l wrote

Some people just like to stick to what they know and grew up with them separate.Hot water systems are easily contaminated if not kept at a hot enough temperature (60-65c to kill Legionella) , some people still prefer them separate out of paranoia over that still too if the cold is used for drinking.

And just old houses, plenty of people won't spend out on a new sink for fittings for a mixer tap when what is there is working fine.

Split tap bathroom sinks are still made and still sell here.


stevethezissou t1_ja4n24q wrote

Ok yea that’s all fair. I take it back. I’ve just lived in some split tap houses and was always annoyed by it.


Killboypowerhed t1_j9zilak wrote

Mine has a section that pops out to access the cistern


The_Primate t1_j9zjgk3 wrote

I wish that mine did!

I had the same issue in my last place when one of the jets on the spa bath broke. Never even used it as a bath, just as a shower.

Had to take down a wall and retile it once i'd replaced the nozzle. That's twice in 10 years. I mean, it looks better than a plastic panel, but incurs a lot of ballache.

This is in Spain for reference.


SatanLifeProTips t1_ja0c9rf wrote

Let me get this straight. You didn’t change out the tile with a removable piece of stainless steel so that you can just unscrew and silicone it when done? You just took down and remade the tile wall?


gratusin t1_ja1ww89 wrote

Easily accessing the ballcock is important. You never want to struggle to touch the ballcock. It should always be right there when you need it….. ballcock.


The_Primate t1_ja1y6om wrote

There isn't even a ballcock, there's some weird cylinder that slides vertically in a shaft. All well and good unless you have high calcium water that leaves calcium deposits on everything and stops it moving. Which I do and which it does.


gratusin t1_ja34yzc wrote

Damn, that sucks. And here I am sitting on a toilet that I could easily fix by just slightly turning around. Gotta be thankful for the small things I suppose.

wanking_to_got t1_j9z1ofv wrote

There are cold war era mass apartment blocks and they have been modernised in the last decades. New kitchens and bathrooms. But you have to drive a bit for jobs and you might hear the neighbours television due to thin walls.

Everywhere else in Germany, apartments usually start around 300 to 400. Decent ones are around 500-800.

My shot is, Poland


wanking_to_got t1_j9ysubq wrote

Do they have the Euro?


LisPiortus7 t1_j9yu1m0 wrote

No, but maybe he had converted it


ElleRisalo t1_j9z6uah wrote

To be fair Euro is accepted in Poland, it's just not nationalized as a currency because the Zloty (sp?) Doesn't meet exchange/retainer threshold yet.

So they could be paying in Euro if the landlord accepts it. Banks in Poland transfer Zloty to Euro and back every day.
