Given the size of this object plumbing will have to tinker a little longer than with washbasin:
- disable and drain;
- Twisted nut extract and siphon drain grate;
Important!If the bath is very old and nut "boil" will break the drain grate.The easiest way to do this with the inner side of the bath by means of a small hammer and chisel.Slugger segment funnel and fold the rest of the way that it went through the drain hole bath.

Clean walls and floor
Of course, before making repairs to the toilet you have to determine the type of wall coverings and floor.WC is recommended to finish with ceramic tiles, and a separate toilet can washable wallpaper paste over or plastic sheathing.It looks great in the room and wall paneling.
before laying ceramic tile walls and floors must be cleaned of old finishing materials.It all depends on what they have been covered.
If ceramic tile, bring down it.To make it easier to just as shown in the video.
If the walls were wallpapered - remove them and check the strength of the walls.In places where the plaster is slightly moved, you need to discourage it completely.If the plaster coat is strong enough and smooth, you can leave.
Important!Quite often in old houses plaster on the walls imposed unevenly.In this case it is better to remove it.Otherwise, lining the walls you will significantly reduce the already small area of the toilet.
need to wash whitewash.If the layer is thick, use a spatula.Wet the surface with warm water using a cloth or sprayer, and then remove the entire layer of whitewash.

installation and finishing
If the toilet is combined with a bathroom, good waterproofing is necessary.Yes, and a separate toilet, which, as a rule, are the central water supply and sewerage risers, it can not hurt.
There are several types of waterproofing materials.The most popular ones are obmazochnye and Wood banding.First issued in the form of pastes and are applied to the surface with a brush or roller, and the second is a self-adhesive film.Using the latter requires careful preparation of the walls.Thus, the surface of the drop should not be more than 2 mm.Surface waterproofing can be applied to walls unprepared.The main thing that they are clean.
In combination bathroom is recommended to isolate the entire surface of the walls and floor.Sometimes in order to save only protect the areas around bathtubs, showers and washbasins.This approach makes sense only in a fairly large rooms.In small bathrooms saving material becomes so low that it is not necessary and the "fuss" - easier to isolate the entire surface.
toilet in a separate room, you can do just waterproofing the floor:
- Vacuum the surface;
- Prime with her;If
- between the wall and the floor there is a crack, it is necessary to cover with cement mortar or tile adhesive;
- angles and joints between the slabs (if any) sizing special sealing tape;
waterproofing material, regardless of type, must be applied not only on gender, but on the lower part of the wall - about 20cm.
most often in the repair and replacement of the toilet is conducted water and sewer pipes.The majority of apartments are central risers it is through this room.If the pipes in your home are old, try to negotiate with the neighbors above and below, and replace them.If you do not even get to replace the entire riser pipe section and change passing through your apartment.In this case, the connection must necessarily be in the apartment, where there were old pipes.
course, internal wiring plumbing and drain should also be replaced.Appeared in recent years, the construction market plastic pipes can be hidden in the wall.
It's enough to make wall Stroebe, lay pipe and close Stroebe solution.It should be noted that if the riser passes through the toilet, hiding the rest of the pipe in the wall does not make sense - risers hide still fail.It is much easier to close all pipe duct.
agree that even modern pipes crossing the room from floor to ceiling will not add his aesthetics.This means that they must hide.You can do this by using the box of drywall or plastic with a window to access the pipes.
to ensure free access to the pipes as a screen sometimes used shutters.Such a process will not only hide the pipes, but also arrange several shelves for household trivia.
incorporated into any search engine query "bathroom toilet repair photo" You can easily find dozens of variants of such structures.
In order to make the perfect toilet repair their own hands (photos ideal everyone can choose for themselves on the internet or numerous thematic journals) must carefully align all surfaces.Let's start with the walls.First, using a spirit level, plumb and measure the curvature corner walls.If it is small, and as a finishing material you choose tile, enough to arm a spatula and tile adhesive.In this case, the alignment process is very similar to the process of putty.
If the walls are very curves have to be plastered.It should be noted that this process is time-consuming for both the novice can be quite complex.To understand all the intricacies of this process will help the next video.
thus align the walls.
layer of waterproofing on the floor should be covered with concrete screed.In this case, the best solution is to add polypropylene fibers.This will prevent shrinkage cracks.In addition, the flooring in our apartments are rarely smooth.So with the help of the two ties we will solve the problem immediately - conceal waterproofing and align the floor.
Important!If you decide to arrange your closet in a warm floor, put it before pouring the screed.
Pour screed easiest "Mayak".The small room is sufficient to establish only two guide rails - along the walls.The distance between the "beacons" to be 1-1,3m.The stores sell special plaster beacons, but if you want to save, you can use for this purpose trimming wooden beams or metal profiles for the drywall.The cost of repairing the toilet can be a little bit lower, not only doing all the work personally, but having tried to scrap the least possible residues of building materials.The most important thing is not to overdo it - sometimes excessive savings leads to very poor results.
Let's get started:
- expose the guide level and fasten them on the small hills of the solution;
- sure to check the level of long-location beacons to each other;
- When the solution has dried, proceed to fill.We start from the far corner of the room and move toward the door;
- pours a few buckets of solution against the far wall and the "stretch" of his rule as shown in the video leveling walls;If
- get deep "well", adds the solution and just passing the rule;
After the entire surface of the floor covered with a tie, give it to dry.This process usually takes a few days.Do not try to speed it up due to the high temperature in the room - it would lead to a significant reduction in working qualities of concrete.In particularly hot days, the concrete should be covered with plastic wrap, and once a day to moisturize.
Important!Validity of the drying concrete screed about a month.That's how much you need to wait if you are laid under screed electric "warm floor".

- Measure the height of the wall and divide it by the height of the tile.Thus, you get the number of whole numbers.Then calculate the height of the truncated tiles.
Important!Calculates the height trimmed tiles, be sure to consider the gap between the rows.Usually it is 2-3 mm.
- Measure from the floor a distance equal to the height of the truncated number and level attach a flat piece of wood or metal profiles;
- the corners of the wall, using a plumb, fasten vertical slats - they will serve as a vertical level;
- ready solution.To do this, we pour in the prepared container and the water in small portions Pour adhesive.Stir construction mixer (special attachment for drills).
required proportions, usually indicated on the package.But the final decision should be taken based on the consistency of the mortar, he should stay on the wall and did not drain, and at the same time be sufficiently flexible and smeared.
Technology laying tiles on the walls and floor perfectly shown in the following video.In addition, you will learn from it how to cut tile and wipe the seams.In the video, experienced craftsmen do not use vertical levels, but those who took the first masonry tile better to be safe.
