If your trusted toilet has developed leaks or started cracking: is using too much water when flushing, or has simply changed its color, then it is time for you to consider installing a new toilet. But what process should you follow during the installation process? LS Handyman Singapore advices that you stick to these steps:
1. Start by Locking Down the Bolts
One of the most frustrating tasks when setting a new toilet revolves around setting the bowl onto its new bolts. It is normal for them to start slipping and tipping as you are attempting to properly align them with the toilet holes. Make sure you do not crush the wax ring with each miss.
2. Fix the Flanges
Here, you need to be careful when selecting the ring type to use. Common ring types include: ear-type ring, repair ring, 2-part repair ring, repair flange, and repair bracket. If you are not sure which is which, it will be best to call in a handyman.
3. Use Shims to Eliminate Rocking
If your toilet starts to rock when placed on a floor that is not even, be sure that it will eventually break its wax ring seal, and the end result will be uncontrolled leaking. Therefore, ensure you check whether there are wobbles as you are setting it in in place.
4. Sit On the Toilet to Ensure the Wax Ring is Squished
Having set the toilet in place, it will be important to make sure that you get to sit on it to ensure that the wax ring has been properly squished. This helps ensure that the toilet gets to settle properly on the floor. Do not apply too much pressure on the toilet when tightening the bolts and nuts. Too much pressure will call the porcelain bases to start cracking.
5. Do Not Tighten the Water Connections
The best thing you can do for your home is to make sure that the water supply line is flexible. A flexible supply line will be easier to install compared to plastic tubing or stiff metal. Make certain that the water connection is covered using stainless steel mesh.
Hi Ms Lee, thank you for your handyman service. My case is an urgent case as the other handyman whom I engaged to change my 2 ceiling lights and my kitchen clothes hangar couldn't fix it yesterday, Kenny came today to my house after I called LS Handyman and fix those things. He is fast & efficient in his work. Keep it Up! Kudo to Kenny! Thank you.read more
Called LS Handyman Singapore on a Sunday and they connected us with Uncle Alan within minutes and he came down a couple of hours later. He explained to us what he needed to do to fix the leakage we were having, gave us a quote and returned first thing in the morning the following day. Uncle Alan did a great job fixing the leak at my mother's house by changing the old PVC pipes to stainless steel pipes. Thank you for the prompt response and great job! 😊😊😊read more
