People often make the mistake of assuming that toilet installation is a quick and easy process; that it’s a simple matter of removing the old one and replacing it with the new model. But if you’re not prepared and haven’t hired a qualified plumber to do the job, it can lead to mistakes that will cost more money and take significant time to fix.

If it’s time to replace your toilet, then set up a game plan and contact a qualified plumber.

Find the Right Toilet with Tile Importer
Make your project straightforward by choosing the right toilet for your bathroom. Tile Importer is your source of high-quality toilets that come in different styles and sizes. Choose the toilet for you when you browse through our wide selection. If you need to match your bathroom to your new toilet there is also a range of accessories and flooring you may want to consider.

There are several stages involved in inzstalling a new toilet. Familiarise yourself with the steps a plumber will take below.

 

Removing the Old Toilet

Before anything, a plumber will switch off the water supply using the isolation valve. It is turned off, if the cistern no longer fills up after flushing. Use a towel to soak up any water that’s left inside. After this, a plumber will disconnect the water pipe from the cistern and remove the bolts that fix the toilet to the floor. Next, they will carefully detach the soil pipe from the toilet before covering it with a rag.

 

Preparing the Site

Once the plumber has successfully removed the old toilet, it’s time for them to prepare the site. They will check to see if the hole in the ground can accommodate the new closet flange, and then remove any excess flooring that will get in the way. Next, they will dry-fit the new soil pipe into the closet bend before trimming off the excess. The plumber will apply PVC primer to the closet bend and soil pipe before covering them in PVC cement. Finally, they will install the new closet flange and secure it to the floor with steel screws.

Do all toilets fit the same? No. Toilets come in various designs, sizes, and offer different features, such as heated seats and automatic flushing. This is why site preparation is an essential step in the process that should only be done by a qualified plumber. A plumber will:

  1. Measure the area where you will install the toilet, making sure the wax ring fits perfectly to prevent leaks.
  2. Remove the rag covering the soil pipe to connect the new toilet and secure the toilet to the surface with steel screws.
  3. Install the cistern tank to connect the toilet to the water supply, making sure the tank chosen is compatible with the toilet.
  4. Connect the water pipe to the cistern once the tank has been secured and add sealant where the bolts connect the pieces to prevent leaks.

Once all the work has been completed, the plumber will test the toilet (by flushing it) to check for any leaks or issues, that can compromise its use over time. Once satisfied with the results, all that is left to do is clean the area.
