Toilet Fitting FAQs

How to fit a toilet?

It's not a difficult task to replace an old toilet, as long as you can connect it to an existing branch of the soil pipe. You can cut your water usage significantly by fitting a dual flush toilet mechanism.

Step 1

Follow the manual's guidelines, assemble and insert the flush mechanism. Make sure you include the rubber sealing rings where necessary.

Step 2

Place the large rubber gasket into the flush ingang of the pan.

Step 3

Insert the  bolts through the holes in the cistern, using the rubber and large metal washers supplied.

Step 4

Lift the cistern into the pan so the connecting bolts fit through the holes. The threaded section of the flush mechanism should go through the rubber gasket on the flush entrance of the pan.

Step 5

Fit washers to the connecting bolts, and tighten the wing nuts. Make sure you fit these securely - but don't over-tighten them.

Step 6

check if there are no either pipes or cables below the fixing points. Put the toilet in place, and slide the pan outlet into the flexible connector that's attached to the soil pipe. Then drill some pilot holes into the floor at the fixing points. If it's a solid floor, you'll need to make the holes with a hammer-action drill and plug them.

Step 7

Push plastic protective inserts through the holes in the base of the pan, and insert the retaining screws through and into the floor. If the cistern has fixing holes in the back, attach it to the wall by drilling and plugging. Remember to add rubber washers before you tighten the nuts.

Step 8

Connect the supply pipe for the cold water feed, using a push-fit tap connector.

Step 9

Fit the hinge assembly to the seat, following the manufacturer's instructions.

Step 10

Connect the seat to the pan by securing through the holes at the back, using the screws supplied. Then adjust it to sit in the correct position.

How much to fit toilet?

A leaky plumbing making some irritating sounds is not something anyone would love to live with. Whether your toilet is broken and needs to be replaced or perhaps you simply want a new modern toilet and is more visually appealing and up to date, like most DIY projects, the cost of fitting a new toilet is based on a number of factors. These factors the products or materials needed, the cost of the labour as well as the type of the toilet you’d like to install. It’s also important to note that a toilet replacement job may run the risk of extra materials being required for completion. Although a simple toilet differs in price ranging between £30 to about £100. For a cistern toilet, you should be ready to incur within the range of £100 to £300. What’s more? If a new inflow and outflow are required you should expect to incur an additional £30 for a top quality pipe. Also, pre-wall mounting models are usually more costly and under specific conditions, it may need some tiles which will also increase the costs.

 

Overall, the average price you should expect to incur for a professional plumber to install a toilet is within the range of £180 to £700 based on your preferred type of toilet and the need or otherwise of a pipework. Normally, most plumbers charge about £100 to £300 for each job based on the pipework that’s required. In order to minimize costs, you can also decide to sell off your existing toilet yourself as disposal prices have increased.

 

The main difference in price is primarily going to be the quality of the toilet that you opt for. Therefore, in order to lower your costs you can explore budget toilet options.

How to fit a wall hung toilet?

Fitting a wall hung toilet in your home or property bring about a plethora of benefits. Not only are they a feat of modern washroom design, but they’re also able to offer a wealth of practical benefits. Given the fact that the cistern and pipework are all going to be concealed within a duct system, the areas that’ll be exposed is significantly reduced. This, ultimately, protects them from accidental damage and tampering, and also leaves a flush, easy to clean surface which goes a long way to improve the hygiene in your washroom.

 

Fitting a wall hung toilet can be a tricky and time consuming task especially if you don’t know what you’re doing. If you lack the confidence to pull this off, it’s advisable to hire the services of a plumber who can guarantee the best results for help. So how do you fit a wall hung toilet?

 

  • Complete the 1st fix plumbing works. This should be done before the installation of the IPS panels and cubicles.
  • Fit the stainless steel frame to the wall. High Pressure Laminate and solid grade Laminate IPS panels usually comes with pre-clipped metal DUCT set framing. Simply unclip the panels and number them on the back. Fix Unistrut to the back wall of where the new IPS DUCT will be positioned. Once done, you can then fit the stainless steel framework and fix the frame with M10 bolts to where it makes contact with the wall and floor.
  • Wall hung pan support frame. This involves bolting the frame into the floor and back wall of the newly created void
  • Lining up your toilet. Make sure that your toilet pan are marked out even and spaced before hanging it to enable cubicle enclosures that’ll be fitted later on.
  • Cisterns, flush kits and cut outs. This invloves cutting out holes on the solid grade laminate IPS panels to allow for you push butoon or sensor flush control, waste outlet, flush cone and fixing rods. Once done, clip back the IPS panels to the stainless steel DUCT set frame.
  • Second fixing your wall hung toilet pan and controls.
