SOURCE: How to Install Toilet

It's not terribly complicated, assuming that by "install a new toilet" you mean where there was alredy an existing toilet. First, remove the old toilet. Shut off the water supply valve, and flush the toilet. Then use a spone to get rid of the water that remains in the tank. Remove the nuts on the two bolts at the base of the toilet where the toilet meets the floor. These are usually hidden under two plastic caps. Now gently rock the toilet until it comes away from the floor. Get help to carry it out. Clean up the old wax that's around the flange where the pipe disappears into the floor. Don't be a wuss, it's only wax. Now you'll need the new toilet, a new supply line, new mounting bolts (don't reuse the old ones) and a two wax rings. Yes, I said two wax rings. You'll see why in a minute. Assemble the new toilet according to the instructions provided. Now here's a warning: Do NOT overtighten the bolts the hod the tank to the bowl. You're dealing with ceramics here, don't break them. Now, put the new hold-down bolts in place on the flange. Read the insturctions that came with the toilet, but you have to do this NOW. Now you'll need a helper. With the toilet upsided down, unwrap a wax ring. Make sure it's room temprature or it won't seal. Press the wax ring around the outlet flange on the base of the toilet. Now you and your helper carefully turn the toilet over without crushing the wax ring. Lift the toilet and slowly lowe it so the wax ring is centered over the "flange" which is where the sewer pipe goes into the foor. Then press the toilet firmly in place. Now if you're like most people, you screwed up here and crushed the wax ring without being centered on the flange. That's why I told you to buy two. Now you know what not to do, scrape off the first one and start again. When you've got the toilet sealed on the flange, connect and tighten the nuts on the bolts. Now you may have to use a hacksaw to cut off the remaining ends of the bolts so you can get the neat little plastic caps to fit. Now connect the water supply line. Now's where you start praying. Turn on the water and let the tank fill. Check the supply line for leaks. Fix as necessary. Now flush. Is water running out from around the base of the toilet? No? Good, you got a good seal. Yes? Very bad. Time to go back to the home center for yet another wax ring. Repeat the sealing process and get a good seal this time.

it sounds like one or more of your shut off valves has a glog from hard water calcium. were from indiana its a big problem here.To check this u will have to shut off main water supply and remove top of shut off valve and check for white crusty blockage, even if u see a few particals its present. It can severely restrict flow.

Can low water pressure cause my toilet cisterns to keep running


NO
persistent running is problem valve washers either in the water level control or the flush washer under the press buttons
low pressure will take a longer time to fill but when the level is attained the water will stop flowing in

Dual flush toilet fills slowly. The fill valve is pushing water cistern seems ok. The fill hose shoots water down overflow tube this is the design. If hose placed tank it fills no problem.


check /replace the small rubber washer at the end of the fill tube as they tend to grow with age and reduce the flow of water past the inlet

Hi Juan
Unfortunately we can't see what you can see. The problem must be right in front of you but you are missing it. Eg Parts / Seals in backwards.
If you can't figure it out and it's that urgent then call a plumber.
Good Luck

Dripping overflow from toilet cistern.


there is an adjustment screw ontop of the fill valve assembly. Tighten this down and the water level should stop at a lower level unless the internal mechanism has crusted up.

The toilet was installed under the stairs a year ago and has hardly been used - the bowl keeps filling after flushing and overflows, I cant shut it off. It flooded the down stairs twice now - all over...


Take the lid off the cistern tank and have a look. There is a ( usually ) round float ball in there. This is what is causing it. When the cistern fills up the ball is supposed to float up and the arm it attaches to shuts off the water, usually at the opposite end to the float.
Turn the tap on the pipe to the cistern so it is nearly off and move the arm up and down by hand. See what it is getting stuck on or what is happening.

If it is not a simple sticking problem, you may need to undo the top of the cistern valve itself ( opposite end to the ball. )
Turn the water off completely to the cistern to do this or you will get squirted. :)
They are fiddly little valves and all a bit different but if you take your time and make sure you have a good light you will be able to work out what has been happening.
Hope this is some help.
