Question about American Standard Plumbing
I turned off the water to the entire house to replace a toilet, but the water keeps running out of the supply line in the bathroom.
No problem on this one. Turn of the valve to the toliet just above the floor next to or behind the toilet. Go turn on a outside faucet. Is there still pressure? Wait a minute if it seems like there is still pressure to let the line pressure go down, what this is just water in the line left over. If the water stops on the outside faucet then the water is off. If you do not have a outside faucet then use a tub or a sink faucet. (if it does not stop then see part 2)....Keeping the toilet valve off remove the supply line from the toilet where it connects. This sould be the larger end. Is it is a flex line this should make it easyer. If it is a hard line like copper tubing, stop and go to the hardware store and a buy a flex supply line. This will make your job a lot easyer. After you remove the part of the line that connects to the bottom of the toilet then find a bucket place the end of the line you removed from the toilet into the bucket ( you may have to place the bucket at an angel to do this. Now turn the water valve at the wall for the toiel back on and drain the line. You may have to empty the bucket a few time but the line sould drain out.
( Part 2) If the water to the house is still on you need to go to the water meter and turn of the curb stop, this is going to be the valve inside the meter box ( if you do not have a well) and are on public water. You will need a cresent wrench, sometimes these valves can be hard to turn so you may have to use a little force. If you are on a well the you need to find the valve in you well house and turn it off. If you need more help or this did not solve this problem the repost and I will check back in a little while.
