Just had a closer look at my new lav that got delivered last week and I noticed that the outside of the outlet isn't glazed.
Is this normal? I kind of assumed it should be glazed to help with the seal. Don't want to kick off with the vendor if it is acceptable like that.
Any thoughts would be very welcomed!

I've seen them both glazed and unglazed they all seem to seal ok.

I suppose unglazed is less likely to pop off :puke:

I just though that anything that could get wet should be glazed, either on the clean side or the dirty side! Isn't it porous when unglazed?
Porous with clean water is one thing, porous on the dirty side is surely not a good thing.

The clay should be vitrified when fired to maturity.

A fully vitrified ceramic item will hold water whether glazed or not.

Why would you want a window to watch your poo go by! :dunno:

If you look at cisterns the inside is not glazed and they hold water ok, less chance of the multiquick slipping off if not glazed too I should think.

Thank you all. So glad this forum allows me to ask people who know.

I'm an amateur, but I'm trying to be the best that I can.

You guys are quality :)
