    Default In wall cistern outlet height above floor

    Hey guys,

    We have installed a Caroma Luna invisi in wall cistern. The manual states the cistern outlet pipe must be exactly 358mm to center of the outlet above finished floor.

    We have allowed 14mm above the Scyon for waterproofing, tiles and glue. Does this seem like a good figure? Also if we are out a bit can the seal/collar that joints the cistern to the bowl accomodate a few mm or must it be exact?

    Seems like a bit of a gamble, once it's all tiled how to we adjust if it's slightly out?

    Thanks for your time!

    Ben

    The pan has an absolute measurement for the inlet above finished floor height, the cistern in the wall should have an allowance for adjustment.

    14 mm will be dependant on your selection of tiles, if your tiles are 5mm I that is too much.
    Waterproofing will be around 1mm, adhesive will vary particularly if using large format tiles on an uneven surface. If flat I would allow 3mm.

    It has a few mm of tolerance. The pipe isn't under pressure.

    15mm sounds about right
