There are three ways to install a tank with respect to the toilet.The tank can be mounted high above him, close to the ceiling.Very often this type of installation is found in the homes of the old Soviet buildings.To connect to the toilet in this case, an additional pipe.The advantage of this connection is that the water rushing down from a great height, well washes away everything in its path.
In another case, a tank mounted on the toilet, connecting with him a short rubber sleeve.This method is useful when replacing an old to a new tank without disassembling the toilet.Of course, the most successful solution to the replacement of the entire structure.The tank thus is mounted on a special platform toilet, and the whole structure occupies less space.
When overhaul is better to use a
third method of installation zastennym or integrated cistern.These tanks are made from durable polyethylene.In form they resemble plastic canister with mounting lugs and holes for pipes.All this is bricked into the wall, and outside is a button for running water.Repair of the tank is made through the dedicated button hole in the wall.It is important when installing such construction use water filters.
addition to the installation methods are different bins features a trigger device.It can be a side and top.In a tank with top lid is located in the middle of the head, for which you need to pull up, or button that must be pressed.For high tank such mechanism, of course, not suitable.It uses the side shutter mechanism, in which the side chain is bound.Both options can be automatic or manual mechanism.
automatic mechanism pours from the tank all the accumulated water.At such times you can see two buttons, one of which allows minimal amount of water drained.Manual mechanism pours water as much as you wish.
Tanks can be made of different materials.The most beautiful and popular among modern manufacturers of sanitary equipment - faience.The most durable - tanks made of cast iron, however, in terms of design, they do not differ elegance.Plastic products are easy and often quite compact, but are easily damaged during assembly and further operation.
