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 number 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 quality suspended toilet from Europe, then the latter will definitely be more expensive. However, with the models of similar quality, the situation is somewhat different. A familiar, firmly standing toilet on the floor will be more expensive than a suspended toilet for about 5 thousand rubles. Most likely, suspended sanitary ware causes alarm, because for its installation you need a whole set of special fasteners that you need to purchase separately and install exclusively with the help of a specialist. In addition, a standard toilet is connected to all systems in a couple of hours, while the installation of suspended plumbing will take longer. Myth number 2: Complications in the repair As another argument that forces to abandon the hanging toilet, many call difficult access to the drain tank, because they believe that it must be walled in and will certainly flow at the most inopportune time. In reality, the built-in tank is made of more than durable, durable material, so that it does not threaten to flow. It can only break down the drain system, but this is not a problem: you just need to remove the hiding panel and change the worn out device. In the tank itself, you do not have to change anything. Myth number 3: For a small bathroom is not good. 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, the wall box in which the drain canister is installed can be made up to half the height of the wall, the rest of the part can be used as lockers and shelves. Another option is also possible - to turn the false wall into a zoning element of the interior. Myth number 4: Suspended plumbing is very large. It is not. For example, in a floor toilet bowl, the depth of the tank is usually not less than 20 cm, while for the suspended one it is 11. Even if the thickness of the drywall box in which the tank hides is added to this figure, the figure will still be less. In addition, in this box you can hide hated communications and pipes. Another advantage of the "soaring" plumbing can be called the possibility of its placement on virtually any wall, including on the erected partition. And this gives the designer great opportunities for maneuvers. Myth number 5: Once this design collapses the myth that a hanging toilet can not stand the weight of its user, does not fit in with reality. After all, manufacturers of such equipment issue an appropriate guarantee for all their products and take great care that their products can be used by a wide variety of people. For example, a properly installed suspended toilet can withstand up to 400 kg. However, in order to ensure that the suspended sanitary ware meets all quality standards and has served for many years, professionals should install it. And it's not difficult to find them, because the suspension models appeared on the market more than 15 years ago. During this time, experts were able to understand all the subtleties of suspended sanitary ware and believe that its installation is not very difficult and quite comparable to the installation of conventional structures. Myth number 6: Unreliable fastening system Many buyers confuse the 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 bearing walls with the help of anchor bolts, which take on the entire load. What do we think about this? Suspended plumbing is ergonomic, completely reliable and durable. As for more complex fasteners, then such a system is called a frame. Thanks to her, you can fix the plumbing not only on the load-bearing wall, but also on a light partition. The fasteners themselves look like a strong metal frame, which is easily mounted on the above surfaces and reliably holds the corresponding sanitary equipment. 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 installationProduce at the stage of rough work. The design will be strong and durable only if the necessary standards and professional installation of all its elements are observed. One of these standards, which is mandatory for implementation, is the observance of the optimum height of the plumbing. For example, a toilet and a bidet should be fixed not more than 45 cm from the floor, and a maximum for the shell - 85 cm.
