Hello again to all the handy people out there!
Tankless Toilets not only look cool without that ugly dust collecting tank, they also save space which can help to avoid scenarios like you see on this picture right here!
Of course, it is not your average toilet and there are a number of reasons why they’re not that common… In order to convert to a “tank-less” system, you have to make the wall behind it 6″ thick; redo the plumbing completely, and then do some drywall and paint. You also have to do something with the hole in your floor that would be left behind…
So, really, Tankless is an excellent option only when you’re remodeling or for a new construction. Otherwise, it doesn’t seem worth the trouble and that is why they are not sold in home improvement stores. I think I’ve installed 7 systems so far, 4 different brands… This TOTO tank-in-the-wall toilet, which is what all “tankless” toilets really are, is my favorite by far. There is only one minor flaw that I found, which I hope they correct (easily) after they read and watch this edition of You Do It! My thoughts, it has something to do with the Metric system…
I’m not gonna tell you about it… You’d just have to watch! 🙂
So the amount of work was considerably more, compared to a regular toilet. But I was remodeling the whole bath, so I opened up the subfloor and build a 2×6 wall for the Tankless to fit into and hang on.
Well, you can see the end result- modern look, compact and cool design. In my opinion, it looks like 100 times better than the standard version. You can mop the floor underneath it easily, or put a rug to protect it from you-know-what, which you can wash and replace every once in a while and keep that area truly clean and like-new.
And Never Again you would need to paint around the tank!
This toilet is sold and shipped Free by Amazon, so we received it in 2 business days.
As you will see in my video below, it was Super Easy to install and I found no damage or manufacturer’s defects at all in 4 systems I’ve put in recently.
I am giving this product a 5 out of 5 stars rating, but they have to modify 1 part, which can be done easily…
So if you’re ready to play with some Real Man Toys, let’s quit with all this chatter so I can show you how You Do It!
Tools you need: Chop Saw. Framing Gun. Compressor. Hole Saw. Pipe Cutters. Torch + supplies. Adjustable Wrench. Drywall, Texture, Caulking & Paint Tools. Finish Gun.
Supplies you need: Tankless Toilet. 2×6 Lumber. Pipe/Fittings/Cement. Subfloor sheathing. Drywall+supplies. Flooring. Base. Framing & Finish Nails. Nail Hole Filler. Caulking. Paint+supplies.
P.S. You can substitute a chop saw with a hand saw. You can use screws instead of Framing Nailer. You can make holes with Jig-saw. You can glue your baseboards and moldings with fast-setting glue, if you prefer, but nailing while pushing them all the way down, is the way to go. You can go completely old-school and use hand-bangers and a good ol hammer, too! You Do It!
This is the TOTO Tankless Toilet installed in this Episode of You Do It!
This is my favorite Propane Torch Brand. Check that you’re not running out of gas!
You’re gonna need some Hole Saws for this Job, if you don’t have any already…
