How to Replace Bathroom Floor Tiles And ToiletTake a toilet and bathroom floor and replacing it is a big job, but one that you can do yourself with the right clothing and patience. Toilet is a complicating factor in the project, like the first time you have to tile around the toilet drain and then install the new tile toilet. If the underlying structure looks weak or rotted floors, you have to have a judge before you continue.
1.Turn off the water supply to the toilet for a long time, turn on the valve, and flush the toilet to remove most of the water in the tank. Remove the water line from the toilet using a wrench. Remove the tank. Remove the two screws holding the toilet floor. Lift the toilet straight up and walked out of the room. You are left with only one toilet floor.
2. Use a hammer and chisel to get the old tile floor. Scrape any residual mortar or adhesive with a floor scraper. Get subfloor flat and smooth. Be careful not to damage the underlayment cement board or other support, because they have to serve as a base for new flooring tile.
3. Oh two chalk lines intersect, divide the floor into four squares meet middle.
4. Use the notched trowel to spread the thin-set mortar in the middle of the floor, including 4-6 square meters. Being able to see the line with mortar.
5. Click the first four tiles with mortar at the intersection of the lines, with tile spacers in between them. Build from there, spread mortar and lay more tiles in a grid pattern, using the chalk line as a guide. Install as many full tiles as fit, while leaving room full tile will not fit, such as along the walls and around the tub and toilet drain.
6. Let the mortar dry for eight to 10 hours. Measure for any partial tiles along the walls and tub needed, mark with a pencil and cut them using a tile cutter. Use tongs to cut tile around the drain tile and building toilets. (Note: I cut around the drain toilet does not have to be perfect, because the base of the toilet to hide the edges perfectly.) Fix all cutting tile mortar. Let the mortar dry overnight.
7. Remove the spacer and floor grout, use a grout float to press the grout into the spaces between the tiles while scraping it off the surface. Use a damp sponge to wipe off the excess grout. Let the grout set for 1:59 days.
8. Set the toilet floor bolts in place within two drain holes in the side of the toilet, with the threaded end of the bolt pointing straight up. Place the wax ring on the side of the canal, between bolts.
9. Set the new toilet on the channel, floor guide the two bolts through the two holes in the bottom of the toilet and wax ring push. Leave the bolts loose. Set the bowl level and shim it level with sliding plastic shims under the base. Tighten bolts with their nuts. Connect the water line to the toilet tank. Bed around the base of the toilet where it meets the tile.
