What is a toilet?

 Toilets are sanitary devices found in homes, businesses, and other buildings that use the movement of water and mechanical parts to remove human waste and transport to a septic tank or other treatment location. Although most use water, dry toilets also exist and this type does not block waste odors or flush waste.

Most models use a porcelain ceramic body and are permanently attached to the floor for stability. After each flush, a water reservoir tank (toilet tank) fills with fresh water via a float valve until the tank it close to full. The toilet then contains sufficient water, working by gravity, to spray into the toilet bowl and flush the contents down attached sewer pipes.

Some also feature an optional spray hose attached called a bidet which allows the use of water for cleaning after using the toilet.
