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

how to fix wall mount toilet


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
