How to Remove an Eljer Wall Mount Urinal

Save

Founded in 1904, the Eljer company has been producing toilet models for more than 100 years. In 2008, the company was merged into American Standard but still continues to manufacture models under the Eljer name. The company has a wide variety of urinals for both home and commercial use. These wall-mount urinals are connected to the water supply at the top, and the sewer system at the bottom. A series of brackets holds the urinal on the wall. Removing an Eljer wall mount urinal isn't difficult and doesn't require any special tools.

Things You'll Need

  • utility knife
  • Turn off the water supply for the Eljer wall mount urinal that you want to remove. Look in an access space or behind where the urinal is mounted for the supply valve. If you cannot locate one, you will have to turn off the main water supply for your house.

  • Loosen the water supply coupling at the top of the urinal. Remove the handle and down-pipe coupling by unscrewing the hexagonal nut above the handle counterclockwise.

  • Loosen the drain coupling at the bottom of the urinal.

  • Use the utility knife to cut away any caulk between the urinal and the wall.

  • Lift the urinal up about four inches until it clears the wall mount brackets. Pull the urinal away from the wall. You may want to have an assistant help you if it is a heavy urinal.
