How To Install A Wall-mounted Or Wall-hung Toilet

Hanging a wall hung toilet is a task that is typically left to the experts. Nonetheless, armed with a good set of instructions and careful attention to following them, this can become a successful do it yourself project in no time.

  1. Place neoprene gasket onto bowl outlet. Move the bowl toward the wall. Push mounting studs through the correct holes in the bowl. Check to be sure the gasket is in place at this time. Place the bowl onto the mounting support using appropriate washers and nuts. Apply sealant between bowl gap and wall. Pour water into bowl so that sewer gas won't leak in.
  2. Turn the tank over upside down with lid off. Slide the donut washer onto the tank outlet. Turn the tank right side up and lower tank onto the bowl so that the outlet slides evenly over the inlet opening. Slip on rubber washers over the tank bolts then slide the bolts down into the appropriate holes in the bowl. Secure with metal nuts and washers. Be sure not to over tighten bolts or nuts to prevent any damage to the porcelain such as cracking or chips.
  3. Now connect the water line directly to the tank using either a straight or angle stop. The way to determine which you'll need is if you have cold water through the wall, use an angle stop. If your cold water comes up through the floor, use a straight stop. Place a washer then a plastic nut onto the connecting pipe on the tank end of the pipe. Next bend the pipe so that it will insert into the inlet opening on the shutoff valve. Check for leaks at this time and take corrective action to seal off leaks as necessary.
  4. Connect the plastic tube from the water inflow regulator into the holding ring which is inside the overflow tube. If your model of wall hung toilet needs to have the flushing lever installed, now is the time to do it. Left handed levers thread on left handed threads. Right handed levers thread on right handed threads. Thread on and tighten, using a wrench.
  5. Turn on the water flow to the toilet by opening the straight or angle stop to allow the water to flow in. Check to be sure that the water is filling sufficiently to the proper fill line in order to flush efficiently. If the water is below the fill line, turn the flow adjusting screw counterclockwise. If the water is beyond the fill line, turn the screw clockwise.
  6. Lastly, place the lid onto the tank. Install the plastic bolt covers over the major installation bolts. Attach the toilet seat following the manufacturer's instructions.
