The simple but ingenious mechanics of the toilet have changed very little since the earliest "water closet" was invented in the 19th century.

And unless something goes wrong with a toilet, it handles its job adroitly.
A toilet has two main parts, both made from vitreous china: a tank and a bowl. Some toilets are cast as a single piece while others are made in two separate parts that are joined together. The tank, which houses all of the working parts, is where various types of toilets differ the most. Several different kinds of mechanisms may be used to accomplish a toilet's basic operation.
