The wood was bare but after 6 years mopping/cleaning/water it has started to "suffer", and needs replacing.
What I would like to do is replace the pedestal with a solid white plastic block. The advantage of this is that it would last longer, is easier to clean, and isn't troubled by the odd splash of water.
What I want is about 300mm wide, 450m long and 50mm high.
I would undo the toilet base floor screws (these go into the existing wood pedestal), remove the toilet, remove the pedestal, clean up/repair/level floor board, fix the plastic pedestal to the floor, and refix the toilet with the base screws going into and through the pedestal to secure the base. I might fashion a recess to match the toilet base shape so it sits in the block with a raised side perimeter so as to avoid any slight lateral movement.
The trouble I am having is finding a suitable plastic block. Most craft plastic blocks are too small. Where can I source this?
To replace with wood would be easier to source, but then I have to worry about sealing it. Advice on how best to do this would also be appreciated.
