my new pride and joy
Posted by: mattkime
Date: December 15, 2019 07:05PM
It was merely 4 months and eight days ago that I posed the question
"What are you buying when you buy a toilet?" [forums.macresource.com] and now I sit here today with two new INSTALLED toilets.

A forum search revealed that I've had them in my possession for only about a month. After removing the old toilet which may have been original to the house, I realized that I needed to fix some plaster behind it and paint the room. The prep became more work than the toilet.

Anyway, I'm glad to return to bathrooms to normal operation and a third room is no longer burdened holding inventory.

BEHOLD -

To celebrate and share the joy, I recommend that they be featured on your Christmas Card.

That's what I initially thought, but now I think it's a patch to the original floor.

My Toto (two-piece) sits in a very similar looking wood-floor half bath, and over time the moisture will stain the wood, sadly. I wonder if your bath has had that issue. Wood and water don't mix well, and I am looking to cover the wood with something impervious at this point.

I was worried about that. The bathroom has been in its current configuration for about 33 years. We did find some moisture under the previous toilet likely due to a poor wax ring. Seemed like a couple of boards extending behind the toilet had taken the brunt of the damage but they're well hidden. The new toilet had a larger footprint than the previous toilet. Did not see damage in front of the drain. Well, there was a mark most of the way around the toilet, minor but clearly visible.

To the left of the toilet is a 3/4 size bath tub. the wood looks fine, at least no worse than our living room. (which does _not_ have a water source) Wisconsin gets some humidity in the summer but indoor heat will keep things pretty dry.

I wouldn't sweat it too much. This is my second house where we've had a bathroom with wood floor and haven't had any issues. Just be sure that your family members mop up spills quickly and don't allow standing water to linger.

Is that the kind with the smooth outsides? I can't stand the ones with the squiggly base. Too hard to clean! Whose idea was that anyway?
