It is necessary to choose a toilet mount very carefully, since it is in most cases that the sanitary reservation will be how sustainable it will be. Today we will consider all kinds of options for fixing plumbing on the floor and tell you how to do it yourself.
We analyze the old toilet mount to the floor
INITUSTITION Installation – detailed video lesson
In the process of dismantling old plumbing, it can be found that the San Faires was installed on the so -called taffeta – a special wooden grill. In general, it is safe to say that if your house was erected in the Soviet era, you will find such a “bookmark” with almost one hundred percent confidence. With the same confidence, we can say that during her operation she became unusable and needs to be replaced.
However, you should not go to the plumbing store to find a new taffeta (and you can hardly find it), since this method of combining the toilet is no longer relevant today. Therefore, a wooden grill needs to be dismantled, and in its place to make a cement screed. To do this, use the usual cement-sand solution, which is thoroughly leveled, checking using the level how smooth and even the surface is obtained.
The screed must be left until completely dry, and then, having “tried” the toilet, mark the places of attaching bolts on it. After that, with a shock drill or perforator, the holes for dowels are drilled and they are driven. Then the base of the toilet is put in place and screwed by bolts to the floor. Fasteners need to be delayed as neatly as possible, without making too much effort, otherwise cracks and chips and toilet will have to be changed on fragile ceramics.
It is necessary to twist the toilet fasteners on each side evenly – that is, having made one turn of the key on the right fasteners, they do the same and not left; A properly installed toilet should not have a backlash – that is, not “walk” under a sitting person.
How to fix the toilet on the tile floor, if there are bumps

Now let’s talk about how to fix the toilet if the floor is laid out with a tile. The main difficulty of such an installation is that most floor tiles, unfortunately, have no even surface and therefore mount the toilet so that there is no play is quite problematic. On the other hand, the foundation of plumbing itself can also have influxes, which is fraught with the same difficulties. In the second case, the problem of the problem is quite simple – you need to fag an irregularities with a special file with carbide -wolframic spraying. This should be done very, very carefully, otherwise cracks or chips may appear on ceramics.
If both the tiles and the toilet leg are even, then the installation of the Sanfayans will not take much time. Especially if the toilet was already standing at this place, and its mounting places are suitable for new plumbing. In this case, the old dowels need to be removed, new to put in their place and fix the toilet in the same way as when installing on a screed.
If you mount the toilet on the new floor, then the procedure is such. At first, as with any installation of the toilet, it is put in its place without connection, after which the places of its fixation to the floor are noted. To drill holes, you will need a drill on the tile and concrete. At first, the first of them is drilled tiles, and then a hole is made by the second, the depth of which is suitable for the installation of dowels. Further, the installation goes according to the above scheme.
If the tile is uneven, then the backlash cannot be avoided. Therefore, you will need special wedges that can be made from crosses for tiles. Before putting the foundation of the toilet in place, its leg is smeared with silicone sealant. Then the toilet is fixed in the place and put the cuts cut with the base of the wedge, and after drying the silicone, fasteners are twisted. Sometimes they act a little differently, laying a piece of linoleum or rubber between the base of the sanitary and gender, also cropped flush with a leg.

After the base and tank were installed, it’s time to do the installation of the seat. It is much easier than installing the toilet and attach it to the sewer. By the way, it is worth saying that most modern seats are equipped with special microlifts that allow them to close very smoothly and not to hit ceramics.
The seat is placed on the base of the toilet, after which the bolts that are also allowed through the slots in San Faiyans are inserted into the hole on it. Then the fasteners are twisted on the bottom of the base (but not clamped), after which, if the seat rises evenly, they are spinning to the end.
The fastening of the suspended toilet, which we have already told you in one of our articles, differs noticeable from the installation of the usual San Faire. However, no matter what toilet you choose, you need to approach its installation with all responsibility, since incorrectly mounted plumbing can cause a “flood” in your apartment.
