How to install the bidet

Installation bidet allows you to use this invention of humanity.

Installed bidet

Bidet is a low sink or bathtub equipped with a device that delivers a jet of water.

Therefore, it is necessary to know how to perform this process and what are the nuances of this work, if we are talking about the installation of this device.

Stages of work

First of all, you need to start with the preparation for work. When purchasing a bidet, you should check the complete set of the goods. It is important to pay attention to the bowl, in which there should be three holes. One of them is needed to install the mixer, the others are necessary for the siphon and overflow. In addition, you should check the product for defects and other damages.

It should be noted that the kit does not include a siphon and a mixer, so they should be purchased separately. When choosing them, it is important to choose such a product so that it harmonizes with the bowl of the bidet. In this case, the overall appearance of the product will be a single whole.

As for the mixer, there are two types. The first of these is the outer one, respectively, the second is the inner one. The latter type differs from the first species in many elements, the similarity is manifested only in the presence of the outside of the water outlet and the valves.

In addition to the crane on the shelf, the bowl also has some differences in the rear part. There must always be a siphon, while the toilet has a direct outlet to the sewage drain. In addition, the mixer has a divider that can change the direction of the water, depending on the need for use.

The back of the structure is needed to maintain the bowl in a horizontal position. The purpose of the upper niche is to connect the hoses, and the lower hole is necessary for the installation of a branch pipe and siphon. Thus, if you know the design features, setting the bidet will not seem a difficult exercise.

Work includes some actions for which you need appropriate equipment. In order to install the bidet, the following materials and tools are needed:

  1. Drill.
  2. Wrench.
  3. Forceps.
  4. There are 2 pods.
  5. Siphon.
  6. Mixer.
  7. Nuts, washers from rubber, washers.
  8. Sealant.

Mixer and siphon

To understand the principle of installing these elements, an example will be disassembled based on an inexpensive mixer for cold and hot water, equipped with several valves. To connect the device to a water source, thin pipelines are needed in the amount of 2 pieces. Outside, they must be reinforced with a braid of metal. In addition, the kit includes a set of nuts, rubber gaskets, washers and pins. The usual siphon, having a diameter of about 4 cm, is made partly of corrugated pipe and shell. It should be noted that this element is in disassembled form, in the same form it is sold.

The installation of the mixer takes place in stages, some of the stages are connected directly with the pulling of the sub-assemblies. Initially, the ends of flexible hoses should be fixed in the sockets located on the mixer. At the top of the bowl, on the very shelf, there are holes. In them, the other ends should be inserted, after which the mixer is fixed with a nut.

It is necessary to insert a gasket, otherwise the tightening of the nut on surfaces such as faience or porcelain can lead to the formation of cracks. Rubber gaskets, nuts and other elements come complete with a mixer. As for the fear of fragility, the products made of brass are more durable, but they will cost more.

In this process, a complicated situation may occur, due to the location of the nut, as a result of which the horn key can not reach the nut. To get out of this situation, you need to use the forceps and the end head. Their location should be parallel to the placement of the bolt, while the key is held perpendicular, which leads to such a difficult situation. However, you need to act extremely carefully and carefully - the forceps can also damage fragile porcelain.

When approached to complete the installation of the mixer, it is necessary to screw the neck - drain grid. After this, the installation of the siphon occurs, this also applies to the branch pipe. The procedure is as follows. First, the end of the siphon is connected from the inside of the neck, the field of which is tightened tightly. At this point, you should carry out the tightening manually, to avoid damage to the surface and threads. The second end, represented by the corrugated pipe, is pulled out from the back side outwards. Now you need to install the bidet yourself, fixing it on the floor.

Securing and connecting

The product is installed in the right place, after which it is necessary to check the length of the sub-assemblies - it should be enough. After that, the places of fastening are marked on the floor, the bidet is temporarily stopped, it can be removed to the side. The holes in the marked points are drilled in the floor. If you have to deal with tiles, then the drill should work at low speed, otherwise after installing the bidet you will need to repair the floor in the bathroom. When the holes are made, the bidet is put in place, fixed with dowels. One should not forget about the use of rubber gaskets. The edges of the bidet, which are in direct contact with the floor, can be treated with a construction sealant.

The bidet installation is complete, but this does not mean that all the work is completed. Now you need to connect the device to the sewer and water. It is recommended that sewer pipes be prepared before the installation work. The installation should be carried out so that the ends of the pipes are immediately behind the device. In this case, there is a rule - the shorter the line, the better the product will work.

If the pipes are disguised in the wall or if this work is done, it is important to leave three holes necessary for draining and leading hot and cold water. In this case, there is nothing complicated - the corresponding pipes are connected with each other, after which the system performance check follows. To do this, you must open both valves at once with hot and cold water. If properly connected, there will be no leakage, including in the drainage system, and a good head is another evidence of correctly performed work.

Thus, mounting the bidet on the surface and connecting it to the sewage system is not particularly difficult. It is important to perform the steps correctly, secure the product on the floor, firmly connect the drainage and water supply systems, and the device is ready for further use. The main thing that you need to pay attention to is the assembly of the product.

Elements of the system must be in good order, they should not be damaged.

In this case, the installation does not really cause trouble.
