how to fix wall mount toilet
 
hi guys. i am willing to fix wall mount toilet in my bathroom.
it will be on two support system.
i heard that ceramic bowls mostly breaks while fastening to carrier bracket when it come in contact with hard surface of wall tiles
what measures should i take while fastening the bowl?
should i use plywood between the bowl and wall tiles to reduce the braking chances or there is some specific fastening torque?
any help is greatly appreciated

I haven't set a residential wall mt. toilet but have done plenty of commercial units. these toilets are held away from the finished wall surface by back up nuts and washers at 3 of the 4 corners. If the 4th corner is tightened down- you run the risk of breaking the bowl. Hope this helps
