What to choose: a floor toilet or a suspended toilet with installation?
When choosing plumbing most of the townsfolkthinks: what to choose - a floor toilet or a hanging toilet with installation? Which is better, and what is the difference? First of all, in the latter case, a special metal construction is used to mount the equipment - installation. It is firmly attached to the floor or the bearing wall of the room in the right place, and already on it are installed all the elements of which the hanging toilet is composed. Installation in this case not only greatly simplifies the installation of equipment. It also significantly saves space in the toilet room.
However, before making your choice, you should find out what is the installation for the toilet, and try to understand all the advantages and disadvantages of this design.

Many confuse the installation with a conventional tank built into the wall. However, these are completely different things.
Installations for the toilet are divided into:
- wall, which are attached directly to the wall;
- floor. They are installed in the middle of the bathroom;
- Angular - in the corner of the room.
All these types of support structuresdiffer in the shape of the supporting frame and the number of basic elements located on it. However, the process of installing the various modules is very similar. For example, all installations for the toilet have the ability to adjust the height of fixing the toilet bowl, drain button and the tank itself. Floor modules are recommended to use if the wall is unstable and can not withstand the weight of the toilet.
Many consumers areplumbers with distrust, they believe that a hanging toilet with an installation can not withstand long-term operation and at one perfect moment break off from the wall. However, few people know that a standard installation can withstand a weight of up to four hundred kilograms.
The durability of the operation of suspended sanitary ware is not affected either by the thickness or density of the material of the bearing wall. A properly installed module can secure the toilet in the most reliable way.
In addition, the hanging toilet with the installation, as a rule, takes up very little space. For example, the drain tank with this design is very compact and has no more than 10 cm in width.
Installing the installation for the toilet
Once the installation frame is fixed in the desireda ceramic toilet bowl, a drain tank and other elements of the sanitary ware system are mounted on it. If desired, a gypsum board or tile structure can be mounted around the installation frame in the future. It allows you to hide all unnecessary details of the installation, leaving only a smooth surface, where you only have to install the drain button. In addition, the installation for the hanging toilet closes the tank behind the wall, therefore, the noise of water when flushed or filled is not as audible as usual.
Advantages of suspended structures
Suspended toilet with installation is muchis more compact than an ordinary floor toilet, which is indispensable for the design of a small room. Such plumbing helps to make even the smallest room more spacious and easy.
With a suspended structure, wet cleaning of the room will become much easier. The dark, dusty and damp space behind the toilet and cistern itself is now in the past.
Owners of the system of a warm floor or a complex mosaic on the floor can breathe peacefully. Expensive floor covering now will not encounter obstacles in the form of the base of the toilet.
According to utilities, a hanging toilet bowl withinstallation violates the first rule of plumbing: all communications must be easily accessible. In the field of vision there is only the cup itself, and all the components of the toilet bowl with the tank are carefully hidden. Thus, repair of communications and tank fittings is now difficult. With the problems that arise, only a plumber with the necessary tools can handle.
Also if the floor toilet can be replaced inany moment, and this does not disturb the design of the room, then changing the hanging toilet with the installation - the problem is much more serious. In this case, most often you have to do the toilet repair again.
