Installation of a suspended toilet with integrated grinder

This SFA suspended sanitary toilet model (Sanicompact Comfort) combines the aesthetics of a contemporary ergonomic appliance with the sanitary benefits (including ease of floor cleaning) of a hanging appliance. It is comfortable, equipped with a drop brake. It operates with a very quiet engine, and allows a vertical lifting of effluents over a height of 3 m and 30 m horizontally. An economical dual flush system allows the use of 1.8 or 3 liters of water. We advise you to dress the frame and the mechanism of a panel coated or tiled easily removable.

Mount installation

Presentation of the building

Presentation of the building

1. After having equipped the frame that will serve as a support for the suspended toilet, vertical studs (adjustment of the feet at 0.65 m height) and horizontal (supports of the bowl), place it on the wall "carrier" and not on a partition. The maximum pulling force is 120 kg per peg. The water supply line, (note the valve mounted in the closed position between the 14/16 copper tubes) and the black water drain, is adaptable but must always come from above the frame.

Fixing the frame

Fixing the frame

2. Mark the 4 fixing points of the frame on the wall (2 at the top, 2 at the bottom), drill and anchor according to the nature of the material and the recommendations of the installation guide, then secure the frame by these 4 points.

Horizontal control

Horizontal control

3. Check the horizontality of the bracket with a bubble level before blocking the 4 anchors. The length of the two horizontal studs will be determined by the thickness of the panel constituting the bare wall to which are added 0.45 m and the thickness of the final decorative coating (tiles or other).

Preparing the bowl

Unscrewing the water inlet hose

Unscrewing the water inlet hose

1. With the bowl at the back, unscrew the water supply hose to make it easier to connect to the supply line.

2. Introduce the two plastic inserts, with their clamping screw and whose flexible fins will fit into the back of the bowl. They will serve as cases for the two horizontal pins for supporting the bowl.

3. Pass the flexible fins (shown first) from the two plastic sleeves through the specially designed holes in the back of the bowl. The side clamping screws (see previous picture), will be positioned opposite the two existing holes on the sides of the bowl.

Measurement of the building

Taking the measurement of the floor at the stud

Taking the measurement of the floor at the stud

1. Take the distance from the centerline of the horizontal studs to the ground to postpone this measurement to the panel that will act as a partition. But beware, these marks will be traced on the back of the panel and not on the visible face. Indeed, work with the jigsaw (unlike the circular saw) must be performed on the counterface to give a presentable result on the face.

2. In the same way and for the same purpose, measure the distance between the two studs and the distance between the edge and the corner of the panel.

Landmark catch

Marking holes to be drilled

Marking holes to be drilled

1. To make your job easier, lay the board flat on trestles. Depending on the measurements taken, position the template provided on the bottom of the partition panel. Draw a few landmarks and accurately mark the location of the studs.

Tracing the cutting line

Tracing the cutting line

2. Trace the panel cutting line to the inside edge of the template, as recommended on the installation guide. From this line and the measurements taken, also draw the cutting rectangle of the access hatch of the water supply circuit, not forgetting that you are working on the opposite side of the panel, so in contrast to its presentation.

Sawing drilling

Drilling the passage of the stud heads

Drilling the passage of the stud heads

1. Drill with a 22 mm wood drill, the marked location of the stud heads. To make the cutting lines on the panel, drill the corners of the lines with the same bit that will allow you to easily introduce the blade of the jigsaw.

2. From one corner of the plot, (drilled with the 22 mm drill bit), cut along the line to the next corner. Wearing goggles is useful because the jigsaw's upward blade can project small bursts.

Preparation of the evacuation and supply lines

Connection to the evacuation line

Connection to the evacuation line

1. From the discharge line (32 mm diameter PVC pipe), which is lowered from the top of the frame and held by clamps (clipping system, not closed), make the connection of the flexible sleeve of the evacuation exit. Screw on the clamp.

5. Connect the water supply hose from the bowl to the top of the supply line mounted in copper tubing and equipped with a 20/27 male fitting not supplied.

Setting up the dressing panel

Positioning the panel

Positioning the panel

1. Position the panel with a thick vinyl covering on the siding and cut-outs on the face of the panel. Do not fix it until you have made the various connections.

3. Check using the meter that the length presented by the studs corresponds to the recommended measures and that it takes into account the thickness of the facing applied.

Placing and fixing the bowl

Setting up the support wedge

Setting up the support wedge

1. Position the polystyrene holding block, supplied with the unit so that it can be rested on during connection and placement.

2. To make the connections, partially remove the grinder block from the back of the bowl where it is only placed. Screw the tip of the water supply hose back onto the grinder block outlet. Insert the drain elbow tip (white) into the block drain outlet hose (black) and tighten the retaining collar. Push the grinder block back into place inside the bowl.

3. For the installation of the bowl (less than 30 kg) on ​​the retaining studs, get help for the progressive and effective positioning of the polystyrene shim. On the other hand, it is easier for one person to set up the bowl. This is actually putting the horizontal studs of the frame into the plastic sleeves of the bowl.

6. Hide the lateral clamping holes with the white covers provided by simply clipping. You can now remove the support wedge.

Installation of the flap and general checking of the operation

Fixing the flap supports

Fixing the flap supports

1. Insert the two flap supports into the holes on the surface of the bowl and secure them without tightening their expansion screw heads. Fit the flap cover assembly by placing the fasteners on the vertical studs of the brackets. They will be in good position. Remove the flap cover assembly after positioning it down and up and tighten this time, the expansion screws of the brackets in their position.
