Smart seat toilets can make it easier for us to use the bathroom, especially for children and the elderly. But how do we install them? And what do we need to pay attention to during installation?
Measure the pit distance. Measure the distance between the toilet and the drainage outlet. The most important distance to measure is the horizontal distance between the center of the drainage outlet and the wall. Use a tape measure to do this and keep the tape measure level with the ground. The pit distance of a conventional toilet is usually between 7500px and 10000px. The installation range for 7500px is 295 to 375mm, and the installation range for a 400 pit distance is 375px. Knowing these dimensions is necessary to ensure that the toilet you purchase is the correct size and easy to use (note that the drainage outlet of the toilet must be at least 2 to 5mm above the ground to facilitate the installation of the flange and prevent leakage).
Check for blockages. This is a crucial step to prevent reinstallations. Carefully check the drainage outlet for blockages and don't forget to clean the water inlet. If necessary, fill the toilet with water to check the drainage outlet's flow. If there are no issues with the water inlet, you can install the triangular valve to control the water flow.
Mark the installation location. Gently move the smart seat toilet to the installation location and align it with the drainage outlet. Use a marker to draw a line along the edge of the toilet and mark the screw holes for fixing the toilet. Apply silicone evenly on the inside of the drawn line. This will prevent excessive silicone from spilling out during installation. Then drill holes for the screw holes and embed plugs.
Installing the toilet: During installation, you must apply silicone along the drainage outlet before aligning it with the toilet's outlet. At the same time, pay attention to whether the silicone around the toilet is aligned with the fixed position.
Fixing the toilet: Once the smart wash toilet seat is fixed to the ground, use hand-held screws to secure the toilet. Do not use excessive force, as this may crack the surface of the toilet.
Connecting the water inlet hose and sealing it with glass glue: The water inlet hose is generally located on the right side of the toilet. When connecting the water inlet hose, ensure that the connection is secure and tightly sealed. You can wrap the joint with thread seal tape or place a seal ring on both sides to ensure that the hose is not folded or compressed, which can cause leakage, dripping or poor water flow. Finally, apply white glass glue along the gaps between the toilet and the ground or the wall for sealing and aesthetic purposes.
