Tip & How-To about Plumbing
Anytime you want to remove a toilet, you're usually facing the problem of how to get the water out of the bowl.
First, turn off the water
Flush, and hold the lever down until it has nothing more to drain out of the tank.
But then, you're still stuck with a full bowl of water.
Here's the trick
Fill a bucket with about 1 to 2 gallons of water.
Pour it fairly rapidly into the bowl all at once.
Because of siphon action, and nothing to refill, it will drain 90% of the water out of the bowl, leaving about a cup of water in the bowl.
If you have to have it completely empty, you can use a small hand pump, but in most cases, it's low enough for you to just carry out the way it is.
