I need to affix a toilet pan to a concrete floor. What size screw
should I use, and should I use a wallplug in the concrete? I am worried
about cracking the pan screw hole with the metal screw - should I use
some kind of washer or cup washer in the pan screw hole?
Builder's way of fixing toilet to floor (and always forbidden
in the toilet fitting instructions)... Make up half a bucket
of mortar, drop it on the floor, and plant the toilet on top
More professional way of fixing toilet onto a finished floor
surface... Stand the toilet in position on 4 2mm tile spacers
(or something similar to space it a couple of mm above the floor).
Use a silicone gun to seal around the base, using enough pressure
to force the silicone into the 2mm gap. When the silicone is set,
remove the spacers and finish off the silicone around where they
were (and fill the screw fixig holes).
