Toilet installation skills and precautions

  • Detail

After choosing the appearance of the toilet you like, you must not be confused by the fancy toilet style. The most important thing is to see the quality of the toilet. The glaze of the toilet should be smooth and bright without obvious defects. There should be no needle holes and lack of glaze. The trademark should be clear, all kinds of accessories should be complete, and the shape should not be deformed. In order to save costs, there is no glaze in the backwater bend of many toilets, while some use sealing pads with small elasticity and poor sealing performance. Such toilets are easy to scale and block, and also easy to leak. Therefore, when buying, put your hand into the dirty mouth of the toilet and touch whether it is smooth inside

in terms of flushing mode, toilets on the market can be divided into siphon type and open flush type (i.e. direct flush type), but at present, siphon type is mainly used. The siphon toilet has siphon function while flushing, which can quickly discharge the dirt. The diameter of the sewer pipe of the direct flush toilet is large, and the larger filth is easy to wash down. Each of them has its own advantages and disadvantages, so it is necessary to integrate the actual situation when choosing

after receiving the goods and accepting them face-to-face, the installation of

toilets should be subject to strict quality inspection before leaving the factory, such as water testing, visual inspection of appearance, etc. products that can be sold in the market are generally qualified products, but remember, no matter how big the brand is, it is also necessary to open the box and inspect the goods in front of the merchant to check whether there are obvious defects and bruises, and whether there are color differences in all parts

check and pay attention to adjusting the ground level

after buying toilets and sealing cushions with the same wall distance, installation can begin. Before the installation of the toilet, a comprehensive inspection should be carried out on the sewage pipe to see whether there is mud, sand, waste paper and other sundries blocked in the pipe. At the same time, check whether the ground of the toilet installation position is level before, after, left and right. If the ground is found to be uneven, the ground should be leveled when installing the toilet. Cut the water outlet short and make it 2mm-5mm higher than the ground as far as possible if conditions permit

check whether there is leakage after debugging and installing the accessories of the water tank

first check the tap water pipe, drain the water for 3-5 minutes and flush the pipe to ensure the cleanness of the tap water pipe; Then install the angle valve and connecting hose, and then connect the hose with the installed water inlet valve of the water tank fitting and connect the water source. Check whether the water inlet and sealing of the water inlet valve are normal, and whether the installation position of the drain valve is flexible and whether it is blocked

finally, test the sewage discharge effect of the toilet. The method is to install the accessories in the water tank, fill it with water, and try the flushing of the toilet. If the water vortex is very rapid and flushes quickly, it means that the water is unobstructed. On the contrary, check whether there is blockage

measuring the pit distance is convenient for installation

in addition, the pit distance must be measured during installation. The pit distance refers to the distance from the center of the water outlet to the wall behind the water tank, and the error cannot exceed 1 cm, otherwise the toilet cannot be installed. The pit distance of drainage means the distance between the center point of the ground drainage hole and the undecorated wall. The distance from the ground (the distance from the center point of the drainage hole to the finished ground) shall be measured for the post drainage method. The distance between toilet pits is generally 300mm and 400mm, and now there are 350mm in the market. If you want to know the specific distance, you can know the specific data based on the horizontal and longitudinal measurement from the side of the toilet against the wall to the center of the sewer pipe

professional reminder: when installing the toilet, do not pour cement mortar into the front cavity of the toilet or other cavities to avoid cracking the toilet due to cement setting and expansion

the toilet cannot be used in an environment below 0 ℃, otherwise the water will freeze and expand and crush the ceramic body. Do not hit the ceramics with hard objects to prevent damage and water leakage. In order to keep the surface of the product clean, it should be cleaned with nylon brush and special detergent. It is strictly forbidden to use steel brush and strong organic solution to avoid damaging the glaze of the product and eroding the pipeline

the water seal at the bottom of the toilet is too low, which may cause toilet odor and affect health. If it is too high, the water surface is easy to splash, so the manufacturer should adjust the water seal to the appropriate position according to the height of personal needs. If the pit distance is wrong after buying the toilet, the decoration team will pad a piece higher, make a guide trough, and then make it waterproof; Or buy a drainage converter accessories connection. However, any change in abnormal installation will destroy the vacuum suction of the toilet and affect the original sewage discharge speed and odor separation effect. If the toilet and drain hole you bought are not aligned, you'd better ask the dealer to replace them with a suitable one. If it is necessary to drain another toilet, or to move the existing toilet, the ground must be padded up to make the horizontal pipe have a slope, so that the dirt can be washed away more easily when in use. But try not to move the position of the toilet, otherwise it is easy to cause blockage
