A Complete Guide to Installing a One-Piece Toilet (Type A)
Confirming the Measurements:
Before making any purchase, ensure accurate measurements of your bathroom space. Check the following dimensions:
- Rough-in distance (the distance from the toilet flange to the wall)
- Centerline distance between the toilet flange and the floor's water outlet
- Height of the toilet flange from the floor
Counting the Parts:
Once you've bought your dream one-piece toilet, ensure that all the necessary accessories are present. Check for items such as floor bolts, wax ring, L-bar, and an installation manual. Having a complete set is essential for a seamless installation.
1.Install the Floor Bolts and L-Bar:
Start by attaching the floor screws to the toilet flange, adjusting them to the correct position. Remember, it's important to align the two screws and the center of the flange in a straight line. Next, follow these steps:
- Place the L-Bar, washer, and nut in sequence.
- Extend the L-Bar to its maximum length, and then tighten the nut.
Making sure the L-Bar remains straight is crucial.
2.Install the Wax Ring:
Now it's time to install the wax ring. Adjust the L-Bar if necessary, ensuring that it remains straight. Once everything is aligned, follow the manufacturer's instructions to attach the L-Bar securely.
3.Position the Toilet on the Flange:
With the wax ring in place, carefully position the toilet onto the flange. Gently rock the toilet back and forth to press the bowl tightly onto the wax ring and flange. Then, follow these steps:
- Attach the screws to the plastic sleeve.
- Install the screws into the two small holes on the side of the toilet.
- Fasten the screws using a cross screwdriver and then install the cap.
4.Complete the Installation:
Finally, connect the flexible water supply line (not included) to the shut-off valve. Once connected, perform a flush test to ensure there are no leaks. Congratulations! You have successfully installed your one-piece toilet.
