Open placement of water and waste highways is most often perceived as a violation of the overall design of the toilet room, which is usually eliminated by masking the pipes located in it. The question of isolation of openly laid pipelines arises with particular urgency when a common sewer riser is placed in the toilet.
In connection with the need to solve this problem, we decided to familiarize all interested parties with how to sew up pipes in the toilet, hiding them safely from the eyes of visitors. In the process of studying information on this topic, it turned out that a variety of building materials can be used to close pipes.
It is recommended to mask the pipes in the toilet use modern finishing materials that meet the following building codes:

Framework for cladding pipes The assembly of the supporting frame should be started from measuring the niche, in which water supply and sewage pipes are traditionally placed in communal apartments. To do this, you will have to arm yourself with a tape measure and make accurate measurements of the location zone of all the existing highways in this place.
Small doors should be provided in the casing to provide access to the water meters and valves.

Design of the box
Having decided on the right way to close a niche, you can go to marking of places of fastening of aluminum guides (profiles). For the subsequent installation of guides you should use the sketch prepared earlier; at the same time, the fitting of profile blanks along the length is performed using a hacksaw for metal. Direct mounting of the guides to the walls is carried out with the help of dowel-nails driven in with a step of 30-40 cm. The covering panels themselves are mounted on the guides by means of self-tapping screws.
The sequence for the manufacture of the box
pronounced defects. This is explained by the fact that at some point in time you still have to completely dismantle the casing and frame for the overhaul of pipes.
