HOW DO I REMOVE MY toto toilet FROM IT'S MOUNTING? IT ONLY HAS ONE LITTLE BOLT ON EACH SIDE AND NOT LIKE THE OLD TOILETS WITH THE HOLD DOWN BOLTS


Removing the bolts will allow you to remove the top of the toilet from the base. Make sure to shut off thecwater supply and disconnect it from the toilet before removing. Hope this helps.

How to reset your toilet


Things you'll need.
New toilet bowl bolts, wax ring, toilet flex supply line (if you don't plan on re-usings old) , crescent wrench, channel locks, plastic cup, newspaper, hack saw, towel, protective gloves (latex, vinyl).

First thing is to turn off the water supply to the toilet. Flush your toilet and hold down the lever to get as much water out of the tank as possible. Now take a plastic cup and scoop out the remaining water in bowl, throw into tub or sink.

Take your crescent wrench and un-bolt tank from floor. If bolts spin, I suggest just cutting them right below the nut, being careful not to scratch or break your toilet. Your toilet will break or crack if your put to much pressure on it, the most common spot for a crack is by the bolt holes. Dissconect supply line from tank holding cup below it to catch the water, if supply line is flex you can leave attached to shut-off valve, if rigid, remove from shut-off valve. Use towel to wipe up water.

Place newspaper out on floor. Stand over toilet facing the tank, your legs on either side of bowl, grab toilet right in front of tank on the bowl. pick straight up, your going to be hunched over while your carrying the toilet and walking like a penguin, just try to keep toilet level as you carry to newspaper.

Remove old seal from bottom of toilet and around toilet drain. Wear gloves and put spoils into plastic bag. Use screw driver to scrape any chunks up. Clean area. Remove old bolts from toilet ring and place new ones in. If toilet ring is broke, call a plumber. Place new wax ring on toilet ring. Make sure bolts are pointing straight up. Get toilet above bolts and lower slowly guiding bolts through toilet holes. After toilet is on, push with light steady pressure straight down to help wax ring spread out even and make new seal. If toilet is leaning towards wall as you push then compensate to have it lower level as possible. Never use a cold wax ring, have it at room temperature. After its lowered sit on toilet for a minute.

Remove any wax that has oozed out and place nuts on bolts, with washers going on first. Hand tighten both sides, then take crescent wrench and tighten down slowly alternating sides, a couple turns on one side then a couple on the other making the toilet set level and ensuring a good seal.
Do not over tighten As it gets harder to turn nut, take your index and thumb and pinch the end of the wrench. Hold with enough force to just hold the wrench, tighten until your fingers slip off. That's the best way I can describe how to tighten bolts safely with out damaging your toilet, if there is a leak you may need to tighten a bit more, use your best judgment. Use hack saw to cut-off excess of bolt,

Attach your supply line and turn water back on slowly. Test for leaks, if no leaks your good.

Do not caulk around your toilet: all that does is turn a leak into a disaster by keeping it hidden from you, Eventually your sub floor will rot and you will have a huge repair bill.

How do I remove the toilet


what brand and type, if it's just a standard toilet, shut the water off first, then flush the toilet to empty the tank, then take a small plastic cup and empty the rest of the water from the toilet. disconnect the water supply tube from the bottom of the toilet tank. next remove the two nuts securing the toilet to the floor and lift it off the flange being careful not crack it. remember to cover the pipe in the floor so it doesn't stink up the hose and always install a new wax ring when reinstalling the toilet.

Hi, we installed the toilet two days ago and it was working fine. It has just stopped refilling. I do not see anything wrong.


there is likely a sediment build up either in the fill valve of the toilet or possibly in the supply line. You can try shutting off the water to the toilet, disconnecting the supply line from the tank and running the water into a bucket to see if the toilet is getting a water supply. If so, then you may need to replace the fill valve. For future reference:
Any time you install a new toilet or remove and reinstall a toilet, it is a good idea to flush the water lines (as described above) before replacing the fixture. This can help to remove sediment from the water lines and the Shut off valve and prevent the sediment from building up (and eventually clogging) the fill valve.

How do i flush the pipes out? (when i flush the toilet it will not re-fill water) one of the answers was to flush the pipes


If you have a supply shut off to fixture shut it off and disconnect supply line from inlet to toilet . If your supply line to toilet is a flexible line then bend it so that you can direct water to small container. Slowly turn valve on to see what flow rate is at that point. If flow rate is not good then I would shut water off to house and replace valve. If flow rate to toliet is good I would reccomend you replace flush vallve. To do this shut off water supply to toilet. Disconnect supply nut to bottom of flush valve. There will be a retaining nut that holds flush valve in place in toilet tank. Remove flush valve after removing fill tube from flush valve to overflow tube. Replace with toto replacement valve or use Fluidmaster 400A. Instructions on box of 400A are easy to follow and if you have flex connector you won't need supply line washer. I would reccomend that before you install new valve that you put rubber gasket on shank of valve and slid it about halfway up the shaft. Make sure that inside of tank is dry and use a small bead of silicon caulking on top and bottom side of shaft gasket. slid gasket the rest of the way on valve shank,install in tank and put on retaing nut hand tight. Push down on top of valve and using channel lock pliers finish tightening nut securely.You may need to reach into tank and grasp valve body to stop it from turning. There are other things you can do if you have a working supply valve. Shut off valve and remove screws that hold top of valve in place and remove and clean surfaces. You can turn valve on slowly to help flush out any rust or mineral deposits. I hope this is of some help to you. Thanks

Toilet cistern doesn't fill up


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.
