    Question Toilet Cistern Support

    G'Day Ppl,

    Been busy helping friend out.
    We are relocating a Toilet.

    What reinforcement is required within the wall to support the Toilet Cistern?
    What height and how much? I am thinking I will use Gal Steel Stud material.
    I will also need this info when I start fitting out my 'Shed'

    Also looking to do the same for any wall brackets and Towel rails etc.

    It would be good to get as much done ourselves before we get the Plumber in.

    Ta.

    Ivan,
    I generally nog out between the studs with offcuts of stud material. If the wall sheeting is already up then it gets more interesting.

    Whatever you do use good quality stainless bolts , screws etc , cause when you need to remove it in 4 or 5 years

    Ta Guys,
    Just as I thought.
    Making sure the height is correct.

    Yes,
    Like the SS316 fittings I have with Neverseize & Loctite
