This is usually the result of long hot showers and lack of ventilation. Open a window, or install an exhaust fan that runs whenever the light is on or kick those kids out of the shower. Another (maybe silly) option is to run a detour in the supply cold water-- that is, make the water supply that feeds these toilets run through a long section of 3/4 inch copper pipe in the basement so that the water can warm up a little before it fills the tank. 50 ft of 3/4 inch pipe holds about a gallon. (That would run you about $75 plus fittings.)

Water leaking onto the floor after flushing


check around where the tank meets the bowl and see if water appears when you flush and if so you need a new tank gasket. If it's coming from where the toilet meets the floor you will have to change the wax seal underneath. That happens when the toilet rocks and ruins the wax gasket.

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!

If you;re sure its under the toilet, look for a crack in the base, especially around the retianing bolts, or the wax bowl seal is gone, needs replacing.

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.

How to change toilet bowl


Shut off water to tank and drain tank by flushing , then use a sponge to soak up any left. Disconnect water line, then 2 of 1/2" nuts at base of toilet ( floor ) . Lift toilet off, clean old wax off toilet and flange at floor, and install new wax gasket. Set toilet down straight and aligned with gasket and flange as well as studs. Make sure toilet is all way down on new wax gasket ( sit on it and move around a bit until toilet feels steady on floor ) then put nuts washers etc back on and snug it up. Don't tighten too much and snap base, just good and snug.

I have a new Kohler Toilet that has a different flushing system from other Toilets. It's about 1 year old now and I'm noticing a Drip noise on the 1st floor under this Toilet. It looks to me like the water...


Basically, if water is flowing out of the overflow tube, then water must be coming in...I would suggest that you check the intake valve, it is probably not shutting off completely when the float comes up to the prescribed level,and continues to leak some water into the tank. That is what the overflow tube is there for.

I find puddles of water in front of bowl


If you're finding puddles of water in front of the bowl ON THE FLOOR, then most likely your wax seal is leaking between the floor and the drain piping. You will have to disconnect toilet, remove water from toilet, remove toilet from floor. There is one other possibility, but not likely If it is just a small amout of water, it could be condensation. If your water source is cold (like well water in summer time) and it is hot and humid in your house sometimes toilet tanks sweat.

Toiliet Drips in bowl for a while after you flush


Check flapper out and adjust water level in tank to proper level. If you get level right and it still does drip it sounds like the flapper is not sealing correctly to shut off water.

Toilet flappers are not to expensive and you can touch it with your hand and if you get a black residue off on your hands that a sign it needs replacing.

Looking to buy/install Toto Aquia II in my circa 1964 co-op apt.


When you say 10.5 inches from wall, do you mean that from the center of the drain in the floor to the back wall is 10.5 inches? If so, you need a toilet for a "10 inch rough-in" dimension. The Aquia doesn't come in that dimension. Sorry!

Caroma Sydney Smart model 270 comes in a 10 inch rough-in and is a dual flush model. Note that all dual flush toilets are fairly expensive as compared to normal toilets. HOWEVER, genrally speaking, ALL 10 inch rough-in toilets are fairly expensive just because the low volume that are sold.
