Installing a new Toilet - How to install a Toilet


If you can install your own toilet then you can choose what toilet best suits your needs, as there is a very big variety in style, price, and quality of toilets. Installing your own toilet is not as big a question as you might think it is. Learn how you can install a toilet yourself. You can have your new model toilet in place in just a few hours. Probably even much less time than that.

The first thing you need to do is pick out the toilet that you prefer to have. If you are older or have health problems, consider a handicap height toilet. They are a couple of inches taller than a standard toilet and make it much easier to get up from. If you have a lot of usage than a pressure assisted toilet might also be a good fit for you. The extra water pressure will help to keep the toilet from clogging. Toilets usually come without a seat, so don't forget to buy a new one or you can save the one from your previous toilet if it will fit the bowl of the new one.

The floor does not have to be spotless before installing the new toilet, but it should be fairly clean. You will next need to install the tank onto the bowl. Set the bolts with the rubber washers on them in the holes on the tank and then set the tank on the back of the toilet bowl. Tighten the bolts gently, just expanding the washers a bit.

Next, turn the toilet bowl upside down and place an new wax ring and sleeve onto the toilet horn. The toilet bowl wax gasket works best if it is at room temperature. This will ensure the proper forming of seal. Now stand directly over the toilet and lift it turning it over and setting it down over the bolts in the flange. By doing this you will place the toilet on top of the wax ring. The bolts will come up through the holes on the side of the toilet.
Install the washers over the bolts and slowly tighten the nuts until snug, while slowly pressing down until the toilet is seated flush with the floor. Make certain that the bolts are tight enough to prevent the toilet from rocking, however do not over-tighten them. Tightening the bolts too much will cause the toilet which is porcelain, to crack. Now, reconnect the water line from the floor to the tank. To give it a nice finished look a bead of silicone caulk can be run around the base of the toilet. Remember that he caulk will be visible, so choose a color that looks good with your toilet for a professional look.

Installing your own toilet can be just that easy. In an afternoon your can pick out your new toilet, remove your old one, install your new one and have it up and flushing in no time at all! Then last of all, check for leaks!! Don't be embarrassed if you find a leak, retighten and check again. Even a pro will have a leak sometimes. Leaks happen! Good Luck!

How do I install wax ring on toilet when no holes for bottom bolts?


The wax ring gets installed on the bottom of the toilet, then the toilet gets installed over the bolts, which poke their way through the wax ring and extend through the mounting holes. This ensures a good seal around the bolts. Be sure to press down firmly on the bowl to seat the wax ring before you install the nuts.

Uberhaus dual flush toilet keeps running


The flapper may not be seating properly after a flush. Even though you say the toilets are brand new, something may be askew in the flushing assembly or may have been affected during installation

I would like too see a video on how too install a toilet


Hi mary
Here is one video and a webpage that may help you a lot on the installation of your toilet.
You mentioned that you wanted to move the toilet in the same room, that will only be possible if you have a wooden floor.
Otherwise if you have a concrete floor, it can be done, but it will be really expensive to move the toilet to a different location in the same room. The concrete floor would have to have a hole bored thru it and the dirt removed under the house to get to install the necessary pipes...really expensive.

Toilet rocked after install, water leaking from under toilet.


This sounds like poor installation.
If you can get the person who installed it to come back to your home & make it right, you certainly should.

There is typically a wax gasket that connects the toilet to the drain pipe at floor level. This gasket needs, first of all, to fit. Then it needs to be well-seated (it's wax, and compressible) by rocking the toilet back & forth before the toilet is securely clamped down.

If it's not a problem of poor installation, it may be that your floor is uneven, or that there are tiles (under the toilet) that are chipped or missing - in other words, physical conditions that are interfering with the secure installation and tightening down of your toilet.

I wish you luck!

Hello. I doubt that the installer would not install it properly. That said, the issue you are having makes me wonder if your bath drain plumbing is properly vented to the outdoors through the roof. Joe

Tiled bathroom floor. Went to install toilet


hi, the tile is supposed to go under the toilet flange (the thing you put the wax ring on), very common "oops", can be rectified by placing another wax ring right on top of the first on. best to make the first one a "horn type" wax ring, then put the plain one (no horn) on top of first and try to smoosh it on just enough to stay in place so when you install toilet it doesn't move,.....cheers!
