SOURCE: toilet pan installation procedure

Hi muller2012,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your question is: the procedure to join pan to waste pipe without leaking. do i silicone around rubber seal?

In 30 years this is the first time I've heard of a toilet "pan". If you're refering to the bowl, it connects with a wax ring and a pair of bolts. You then caulk around where the bowl meets the floor to keep cleaning liquids from getting under and getting stinky. If this is not a standard toilet it would be a good idea to post pictures and give make and model.

Feel free contact me again!

SOURCE: how can you tell if the waste pipe is blocked on a saniflow toile

Yes the bowl will be slow to empty. Try squeezing the white discharge hose as the unit operates, if there is a blockage then this hose will be hard to squeeze. If hose is soft then blockage could be in the toilet pan U-bend in which case fill bowl with very hot water and leave to soften the toilet paper.

There is a leak at the FOOT of my valsir toilet onto the floor what do I do ?


You are going to have to do some investigations...

It could be any of these..
#1 Pan to waste pipe connection
#2 Water flush to pan connection
#3 Cistern to water flush connection
#4 Cold water connection
#5 Cistern overflowing
#6 Condensation

If the cold water valve/washer is faulty then the constant flow of cold water is going to create a lot of condensation.

If the leak only appears after you have flushed the toilet then it is likely to be #1, #2 or #3

Just a matter of elimination..

Need to remove cover over water cisten


Water leaks from toilets are common on the seal behind the pan. Have a look where the pipe runs from the cistern to the back of the pan. There is a rubber flange gasket which fits over the spout on the back of the pan. These are common to split. The toilet will leak normally when you flush it. After flushing, the leak stops.

I wont to replace the sealant from around the tiolet waste pipe, what is the best way of doing this?


turn water supply off to toilet and disconnect water line from bottom of toilet tank. flush toilet to drain tank, use towel to soak up water inside that didnt flush.remove the 2 bolts ( 1 on each side of toilet), lift toilet up and move to one side and lay on it side, scrape off old wax ring from bottom of toilet, scrape off excess wax from pipe on floor. install new wax ring over drain pipe. stand toilet upright and lift straight up over drain hole and reset slowly to make sure each bolt goes through the holes on toilet, replace nuts and washers on toilet and tighten. hook water supply liune back up and turn on water.

Bad smell fro macerator when toilet flushed after being left overnight


Typically on macerating or grinder pumps there is a small 1/2" breather hole on top of the lid, about the size of a dime or nickel. That breather hole must be kept plugged or seal cap. If left open, odor will escape through there. Make sure the pump is vented using an 1 1/2" vent pipe which must be vented to the open air so air can flow in and out of the vent pipe at all times. Also you might want to check for loose connection or waste water leaking from the pump, toilet or any of the connections.
