It is healthier than the European water closet. Also, these types of toilets are cheaper than the water closet type of toilets.

Anglo – Indian Type of toilet is a combination of squatting pan Indian and western water closet style toilets. One has the option of squatting or sitting. These types of toilets could be used when one is confused about the type of toilet they want to go for whether the squatting one of the western one.

European or Western Water Closet:

This kind of commode has a seat & cover. When flushing the cover needs to close. It is attached with a flush tank for flushing purposes. There are two types: S-Trap and P- Trap. The former is used in the lower floors as plumbing can be done underground, whereas the latter is used on upper floors.

kids are also designed differently, they are smaller in size and of lesser height so that they are comfortable for kids and easy to reach for them.
