|In response to Re: Setting Commercial wall Hung|
I will check with the supply house on this hardware kit. Fortunately I have a 3-4 week delivery on the fixtures, so I have a little time to get prepared for this work.
HJ, I have ordered Sloan Flushometer Flush valves Regal model #110/111 (commode) and model#186 (urinal). The vertical length of the vacuum breaker tail piece (from center of inlet to top of fixture)is specified as 11.5" in the Sloan product bulletin.
I have checked the fixture rough-in dimensions and this vertical height dimension is shorter (only 9" on the urinal and 10.750" on the commode). The Sloan product bulletin indicates that the tail piece is adjustable. In your experience can the tail piece simply be cut down in length to compensate for the variation?
Are there traps to avoid when installing these valves or can you offer any tricks to simplify installation?
: If this is your first one, then you need 3/4" nuts to put on the two bottom and upper left hand rods. Have them flush with the wall. Then 3/4" flat washers go over them to give a surface 1/16" from the wall surface. Mount the toilet using those three nuts tightened until the bowl is agains the flat washers. Then spin the upper right chrome acorn nut against the toilet and just turn it about an 1/8 of a turn further, no more.
: : Thanks again hj! I really appreciate your help. Looks like I will have to do some running around to locate these washers, chrome nuts and gasket.
: : : : The urinal outlet is infact a 2" plastic nipple in the wall. The contractor didn't leave the chrome nuts or gasket. I have ordered new fixtures from a plumbing supply house and have asked them to include the manufacturers recommended gaskets for the bowl and the urinal. I am assuming that all mounting hardware will be included with the fixtures.
: : : : I understand your instruction for the urinal connection. The urinal should not be a problem. I am still uncertain as to what kind of a fitting is used on the wall hung outlet. Is it a standard closet flange? Thanks for your help hj.

: : : : : : I am setting a wall hung urinal & wall hung bowl for the first time. The rough-in was performed by a contractor who was since run off the job.
: : : : : : His rough-in includes a 2" outlet for the urinal and 4" outlet for the bowl. These outlet stubs are flush with the wall and capped off. The carrier frame is installed, all centers match the fixtures and flush valves. The rough-in has passed inspection.
: : : : : : Now, what is the best way to go about making these outlet connections with the fixtures? Does some kind of a closet flange get attached to these stubs? What is the best type of gasket to seal these connections?
: : : : : : Fixtures are Kohler (Kingston) Bowl and Kohler (Freshman) Urinal.
: : : : : : I would appreciate it if any experienced commercial plumbers could help.
