In houses built back in Soviet times, there were mainly two forms of release - straight, also horizontal and oblique. In this article we will discuss the installation of a toilet with an oblique release. Assembling and installing a toilet after laying tile is not a very difficult job. It is enough to follow some installation rules and choose the right auxiliary materials. You will also need tools, because without them you can’t install a home throne. So, what tools are needed:

It will take its place for many years and it is necessary to approach the implementation of this task very responsibly. At first we install the dish cuff into the cast-iron socket of the sewage system. For a more intimate contact of rubber with metal, we additionally apply silicone sealant on the cuff before installation.

Then we put the toilet in the sewer and see how the toilet neck and the socket converge.In our case, we had to use the eccentric cuff, since after pouring the screed and laying the tile the toilet rose about 20 mm from the floor. We put on the eccentric cuff on the neck of the product and try it on again. Turning the cuff adjusts its height relative to the socket, if necessary. Then we put the worm clamp on the cuff and tighten it.

And after the drain, the button should rise automatically itself. After the toilet is installed, it remains only to attach the seat. We install plastic fixing bolts in the hinges. Then, having inserted the seat already with hinges, we mount the structure on the toilet, screwing it to the body with conical nuts.
