1. Measure your toilet fixture for compatibility
Use our Finding The Right Fit guide to determine whether you need a Round or Elongated seat.
2. Watch our Installation Video
3. Do you have a flexible water supply line?
Check the line that connects the toilet tank to the water shutoff valve at the wall. If it is a rigid pipe, you may need to purchase a flexible hose to replace it before installing your Omigo. Flexible hoses can be found online or at your local hardware store.
To ensure a correct hose sizing, measure from the water supply valve at the wall to the fill valve under the toilet tank, then add 4” to make sure it’s long enough.
4. Do you have a GFCI electrical outlet?
Make sure to only plug your Omigo into a grounded GFCI (ground fault circuit interrupter) electrical outlet. GFCI adapters can be found online or at your local hardware store.
If it is necessary to use an extension cord, only use those rated for a minimum of 15 amps with a 3-wire extension cord and a 3-blade grounding plug.
5. Are you able to access the top and bottom of the bolts that hold the seat to the toilet fixture?
We have 2 installation options if your fixture only has top-side access to the mounting bolts that hold the seat to the toilet. You can either slightly modify your existing bolts to fit the mounting plate, or use our Top Mount Hardware (please contact us and we will send one to you, free of charge).
Check out our Top Mount Installation article for more details!
6. Can you access the fill valve under the toilet tank?
Some modern toilets have sleek designs intended to cover and camouflage plumbing connections, which can make a standard Omigo installation difficult. For this, we recommend using our Alternate T-valve (please contact us and we will send one to you, free of charge).
** Make sure you can at least access the water supply valve. The Alternate T-valve connects to the water supply valve at the wall, instead of the fill valve under the toilet tank. **
A Phillips head or standard screwdriver may be needed to remove the existing toilet seat and a standard wrench may be needed for loosening tight water supply connections.
Teflon or thread seal tape can be helpful in creating a watertight seal between plumbing connections. Teflon tape can be found online or at your local hardware store.
