How long to let grout dry before installing toilet


We just tiled the bathroom, grouted yesterday, finished about noon. How long until I can re-install the toilet. The produce I used said 24 hours to "light" foot traffic.
Thanks

How long to let grout dry before installing toilet


Hi,

No need to walk into the woods, install the darn thing. You could have installed it yesterday.

Don't forget to caulk or grout the bottom of the toilet and seal the grout in a day or so.

If you do caulk or grout the toilet base leave a few inches open in the back so any leak that may develop can be discovered ASAP.
