Trying to refit bathroom and using marine ply and ceramic floor tiles
under equipment. Problem is that the floor slopes such that the WC pan
is about 0.5-1cm off level, side to side. WC manufacturers
instructions state not to cement to floor - any ideas how I can level
the pan securely, please? Also how can I check the level of the pan
front to back - the front of rim has no eqivalent "lip" to rest the
level on at the back - using the top of the close-coupled cistern
seems a bit arbitary?
Any help appreciated, thanks - we're getting a bit "bogged" down by it
Best way is to level that bit of floor. Otherwise, it's a heck of a job to
scribe a piece of wood under a WC.
I have no idea why you can't cement it, but that does not get done these
I'm presuming there are holes at the base for screws? Of course they
can put cement under it -or tile even. Wouldn't that be easier than
tiling around it? Perhaps they mean: do not rely on cement alone to
fix the poe in shitu? No reason why they can't ask the supplier is
As for the front and back and other levels. As long as it doesn't look
wrong I wouldn't give a sausage.
Extra bonus tip: Do all the skirting before fixing the pan and other
stuff. I really hate that if I have to follow the plumber. And it
never looks right.
If it's not going to be level then at least make sure it's front side
down. Or you'll be plagued for life with skidmarks down the back where
they haven't had a good perpendicular drop straight in to the water.
My next toilet bowl will be one of those big open ones with lots of
water area to splash down in.
