How to install a toilet after repairs
Repairing the toilet almost always involves replacing all communications and plumbing fixtures. The toilet is changing the very first and it is desirable to buy it in advance. Of all the varieties of products, it is necessary to choose the one that is suitable for the form of release and the type of drainage structure. In houses built back in Soviet times, there were mainly two forms of release - straight, also horizontal and oblique. In this article we will discuss the installation of a toilet with an oblique release. Assembling and installing a toilet after laying tile is not a very difficult job. It is enough to follow some installation rules and choose the right auxiliary materials. You will also need tools, because without them you can’t install a home throne. So, what tools are needed:Then we put the toilet in the sewer and see how the toilet neck and the socket converge.In our case, we had to use the eccentric cuff, since after pouring the screed and laying the tile the toilet rose about 20 mm from the floor. We put on the eccentric cuff on the neck of the product and try it on again. Turning the cuff adjusts its height relative to the socket, if necessary. Then we put the worm clamp on the cuff and tighten it.After that, we put the toilet in place and, checking the correctness of the installation, we mark the places of attaching the case to the floor with a thin pencil or marker.Making holes in the tile with a drill on the tile or using a drill. It is necessary to drill a tile accurately and without hurrying, in the unaccented mode, trying not to overheat it and drills. Then anchor bolts attract the toilet to the floor. No need to make great efforts when tightening the bolts in order to avoid breakage of the housing. Tightening the anchors, we put on them decorative caps.We start assembling and installing the tank.First, install the drain valve.
