FIT A TOILET AND BIDET A good knowledge of plumbing techniques and some understanding of building construction would be an advantage. Be careful not to strain yourself whilst manoeuvring the appliances. Ensure that all metal pipes and fittings are cross- bonded with 6mm 2 sheathed earthing wire. Protective goggles and gloves may be needed at some stages. If you are changing your toilet, you may also want to consider re-styling the whole bathroom. Before taking any action, plan your new installation thoroughly. If you have only one toilet in the house, the work must be carried out efficiently to minimise the time that the amenities are unavailable. If you have any concerns about your own ability, ask professionals to carry out the work. 2 - Removing the old WC Check all goods carefully prior to installation and before the old suite is disconnected. The first task is to remove the old pan and cistern. With the cold supply turned off, flush the toilet to empty the cistern. Use a sponge to soak up any surplus water left after flushing. Disconnect the supply pipe and overflow pipe from the cistern. If they are corroded, cut them free. Disconnect or cut away the flush pipe. Remove the cistern and any brackets fixed to the wall.
