And, of course, you should have free time, because if repair by yourself is done for the first time, then complication can arise.

If it happens that you can not make the installation of the toilet bowl in the same way as the old one was installed, because of the formed corner, then silicone should be used to seal the gaps. When you will assemble the toilet bowl in a complete system, apply silicone directly to the cuffs. Thanks to this procedure, there will never be a liquid between the toilet bowl and the tank.

Silicone, which turns into a rubbery mixture, can perfectly seal the gaps. If you pick up the sealant under the color of the cabin, then the water will not fall under the shower and will drain to where it is needed. Using a sealant, you can repair the gaps between the tile and the edge. With the help of this, water will flow down the tile, and then into the bath.

To seal the seams between the tile and the bathroom, use a plastic cornice (as a rule, it is used during the installation of plastic lining).

If you decide to repair the plumbing yourself, then you will need power tools, which will make you work quickly and efficiently. During installation of the toilet bowl, use an electric drill, a perforator, drills with a winning tap. Drill holes in the tile you can with a drill, and drill a hole in a wall of the same diameter. Of course, you can only use a drill with a fight, but in that case you will need to drill for a long time, and you will expend more effort.

To ensure that the plumbing equipment has been in service for a long time, be sure to clean the liquid coming to you. If you properly clean the water, then it will not have any additions and impurities.

Functional Testing

As soon as you repair the plumbing, do not forget to check its functionality. After the silicone has dried (it takes about 30 minutes), open the faucets and let the water run out. At the toilet bowl, set the level of the liquid to be collected and make sure that the float is closed by the water supply valve, and only then install the lid of the tank. That's all the repair of plumbing, no difficulties, you just need to have the desire to do the work with your own hands.
