Fitting my new (armitage shanks sandringham) close coupled toilet in the morning.
My old close coupled has an overflow but the sandringham does not - is this normal nowadays? and if so what is the best way to fill my old overflow hole through the block and brick to the outside?
Other question is, where the cistern fits to the pan, I have the back nut to the flush mechanism only as tight as I can get it with my hands - I dont have a spanner big enough. I am pretty strong (ha ha) but will this suffice? the back nut then sits on a sponge washer onto the pan...... basically should this be tighter than this (flush mechanism in cistern - washer inside cistern - to metal plate on bottom of cistern holding bolts to pan - back nut a good hand tight - sponge washer to cistern - wing nuts onto pan)
any advice welcome!!
