The material necessary for the installation of suspended toilets
Before you start installing your toilet, you must have the appropriate equipment. You will first need to have in your possession a toilet bowl, the frame and the flushing system. For fixing to the wall, you will need several accessories such as lag bolts, anchors and screws. For height-adjustable WC models, you will need metal rails and studs. In addition, water connection hoses, as well as PVC pipes are useful for water supply and drainage. At the tool level, you should have screwdrivers, wrenches, a drill, a level, a few sheets of sandpaper and silicone sealant handy.
Procedures for installing a wall-hung toilet
Once the material is assembled, you can get started. You must first disassemble the previous installation if there is one. Then, it is necessary to set up the frame, both on the floor and on the wall, while ensuring the horizontality and verticality using a level. After that, it is the turn of the water connections to be fixed using the hoses, continuing with the drain pipes. Once these operations are completed, you can then proceed to the installation of the bowl and that of the flush. You must carefully check that there is no tilting of these devices, so as not to risk a malfunction, a water leak or even premature deterioration of the installation.
Precautions when installing a wall-hung toilet
In order to ensure an efficient and durable installation, you must take some basic precautions. First, use quality equipment and accessories. Screws or bolts that break when you tighten them can make you waste time and will weaken your installations. In addition, when tightening screws and bolts, you must be careful not to do it too hard, so as not to risk breakage at the walls or the floor. Another aspect not to be overlooked is the connection of the pipes, to avoid leaks. You must use all necessary seals.
