6 basic myths about hanging plumbing

Many people want to install a suspendedPlumbing. But when they hear that they speak of it, they involuntarily think: is it really that bad and so expensive? In this article, we will call the 6 basic myths about suspended plumbing and disperse them. At the Milan Eurobagno exhibition in 2014, many European manufacturers offered compact models of toilets and shells that literally soar in the air. The secret lies in the special technology of fasteners. Most of the domestic consumers are still cautious about hanging plumbing, we also think this idea is simply excellent. Let's get rid of prejudices together. Myth # 1:suspended plumbing is more expensive than usual It is difficult to talk about the origins of this myth, but if you compare a Chinese product with a high-quality hanging toilet from Europe, then the latter will definitely be more expensive. However, with models of similar quality, the situation is somewhat different. A familiar, firmly standing toilet on the floor will be about 5 thousand rubles more expensive than a suspended one. Most likely, suspended plumbing is alarming, since its installation requires a whole set of special fixtures that must be purchased separately and installed exclusively with the help of a specialist. In addition, a conventional toilet connects to all systems in a couple of hours, while installing suspended plumbing will take longer. Myth number 2:complications during the repair As another argument forcing to abandon the hanging toilet, many call the difficult access to the cistern, because they believe that it should be walled up in the wall and will certainly flow at the most inopportune hour. In reality, the built-in cistern is made of more than strong, durable material, so that it is not in danger of leakage. Only the drain system can break down, but this is not a problem: you just need to remove the panel that hides the tank and change the worn out device. In the tank itself, you will not have to change anything. Myth number 3:not suitable for a small bathroom In fact, hidden communications provide a rare opportunity not only to save space in the bathroom, but also to create additional space for storage systems, cleaning products, toiletries. For example, a wall box into which a cistern is installed can be made up to half the height of the wall, while the rest can be used for cabinets and shelves. Another option is also possible - to turn the false partition into a zoning element of the interior. Myth number 4:suspended plumbing is very large This is not the case. For example, for a floor-standing toilet, the depth of the cistern is usually at least 20 cm, while for a wall-mounted toilet it is 11. Even if you add to this figure the thickness of the plasterboard box in which the cistern is hiding, the figure will still be smaller. In addition, hated communications and pipes can be hidden in this box. Another advantage of "floating" plumbing can be called the ability to place it on almost any wall, including the erected partition. And this gives the designer tremendous room for maneuver. Myth # 5:one day this structure will collapse The myth that a wall-hung toilet will one day not withstand the weight of its user does not fit in with reality. After all, manufacturers of such equipment issue a corresponding guarantee for all their products and take great care to ensure that their products can be used by a wide variety of people. For example, a properly installed wall-hung toilet can withstand up to 400 kg. However, in order for suspended plumbing to meet all quality standards and serve for many years, professionals must install it. And finding them is not difficult at all, because pendant models appeared on the market more than 15 years ago. During this time, experts were able to understand all the intricacies of suspended plumbing and believe that its installation is not particularly difficult and is quite comparable to the installation of conventional structures. Myth # 6:unreliable fastening system Many buyers confuse suspended plumbing with products that are mounted in a cabinet attached to the wall. In reality, suspended plumbing is installed on a wall or partition. The simplest systems are beam systems. They are attached directly to the load-bearing walls using anchor bolts, which take on the entire load. What do we think about this? Suspended sanitary ware is ergonomic, completely reliable and durable. As for more complex fasteners, such a system is called a frame system. Thanks to her, you can fix the plumbing not only on the load-bearing wall, but also on a light partition. The fixture itself looks like a sturdy metal frame that can be easily mounted on the mentioned surfaces and securely holds the corresponding plumbing fixtures. Frame fasteners are installed on the floor or on a podium built for them. They can be adjusted in height. The only disadvantage of such a system is the cost of its installation: from 3 thousand to 10 thousand rubles. The secret of reliable installation Installation must be donestill at the stage of rough work. The structure will be strong and durable only if the necessary standards are observed and all its elements are professionally installed. One of these standards, mandatory for implementation, is the observance of the optimal height for the location of the plumbing. For example, the toilet and bidet must be fixed no higher than 45 cm from the floor, and the maximum for the sink is 85 cm.
