SOURCE: toilet pan installation procedure

Hi muller2012,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your question is: the procedure to join pan to waste pipe without leaking. do i silicone around rubber seal?

In 30 years this is the first time I've heard of a toilet "pan". If you're refering to the bowl, it connects with a wax ring and a pair of bolts. You then caulk around where the bowl meets the floor to keep cleaning liquids from getting under and getting stinky. If this is not a standard toilet it would be a good idea to post pictures and give make and model.

Feel free contact me again!

remove old flapper, go to local hardware store and get a replacement for about $4.

Toilte leaks in front have chk the lines and find no leaks. Is it the toilte


If you have found no leaks on the supply line, be sure to check the seal between the tank and the bowl. This is a common source of leaks, especially on older toilets that have seen much use.

Before you do that though, check carefully at the base of toilet to see if its possible any water is appearing from under the toilet. Your toilet sits on a seal, most often made of wax (sometimes rubber) that seals the water and waste from the toilet into the drain pipe. Normally, those seals last many years. Flush the toilet 3-4 times and observe whether any water seeps out under the toilet. Give it a few minutes (4-5) and recheck. If it is leaking, the fix is pretty simple: Shut off the water, disconnect the source water line just so you won't risk breaking it, and remove the 2-4 toilet bolts. Rock the toilet gently and pull straight up until the seal comes loose. The beeswax seals seem to work the best. Scape off as much of the old wax as you can, and set a new one. They are very inexpensive, and sell for around $2-3.00 USD. To reinstall, remove the protective lining (if present) on the wax, place the ring on the toilet, not the flange and carefully place it straight down onto the flange. Try not to make a mistake - line it up carefully. Press down on the toilet's seat area, maybe rocking yourself a little, until you can see the toilet is back in position.

Next, VERY CAREFULLY tighten the toilet's mounting bolts, a bit at a time, until secure. Over-tightening can break porcelain toilets, so be careful.
OK - either that's fixed or you've ruled it out. Next is the tank seal. Unfortunately, the only way to get to it is take the tank off. If its come to that, first go to the hardware store and secure a replacement set containing the tank seal, a new pair of brass bolts, and the bolt seals. Expect to pay around $4-5.00 USD for the set. The job is pretty easy, you use a wide flat-bladed screwdriver to loosen the (usually) brass screws in the bottom of the tank after shutting off the water and while an assistant holds the nuts from the bottom. You COULD do if yourself, but an assistant makes it easier. Carefully lift off the tank, and you'll see the seal. Remove it, and replace it with the new one, being careful to put it in the right direction, as they are usually cone-shaped. Set the tank back on, put the screws back in, using new seals/bolts (just for good luck) and reassemble. BE CAREFUL when tightening the bolts!! You can easily crack the tank if overtightened.

This is a lot of writing, but just to give you an idea, I could probably change a wax ring in 10 minutes, and the tank seal in 15 or so. Best wishes -

How do I fix a toilet that is leaking around the bottom


The toilet is seated in a wax ring when installed. Over time, the seal can deteriorate. The usual solution is to remove the toilet and the wax ring and replace the ring with a new one. The toilet should be reinstalled using care to ensure that it presses down on the wax ring evenly and forms a tight seal

My toilet keeps leaking water and then fill ups on its own. Where could the leak be how do I fix it? Also I have to hold down the flush lever awhile for the toilet to completely flush. Can this be fixed ?...


If you are not getting puddles on the floor then it is probably the 'FLAP" that holds the water in the tank. It is the rubber part that is connected to your handle. Any hardware store will carry that part since it is an item that will fail, especially in hard water. It is probably the cause of both problems.

Do you recommend 'sealing' the bottom of a toilet with silicone?


no, it will yellow if p gets on it. Use a flexible acrylic caulk, but not an acrylic adhesive because it will make it hard to lift the toilet in the future without damaging the floor.

I need to replace the wax seal on my jacuzzi perfecta toilet, do i need to order one from jacuzzi or can i use a generic one from a hardware store?


I would just use the one from hardware store. nothing special about the wax from the manufacturer except the price...

be sure to do a thurough cleaning on the bottom of the toilet and make sure it is dry before you install new wax ring or it will leak.
you can actually use a hair dryer or set it in the sun to soften the wax ring, don't melt it, just soften it. makes a much easier time when setting the toilet down onto the wax.

The big black washer between the tank and bottom is deteriorating also the black washers on the bolts that hold the tank to the bottom are coming apart and the tank is leaking


Any hardware stores where plumbing supply is sold including lowes and home depot sell toilet seal kits including toilet to tank seals as well as toilet rebuild kits. Ask for a toilet to tank seal and washers for the bolts which might come with the large seal(check)
1. Close toilet water valve
2. Drain tank or sop with a towel and squeeze into tub until toilet is empty or bail water out with a cup.
3. Remove two tank bolts
4. clean area where old seals were
5. put tank seal on bowl and set tank lining it on top of seal.
6. Install tank bolts with new seals and tighten evenly
7. Don't over tighten or tank will crack. You probably can tighten until tank and toilet touch evenly on both sides.
8. Fill and check for leaks.
