Installing A New Toilet In Your Bathroom
There are many people who would want to have a new bathroom toilet installed at home. There also are many tutorials that can guide you on what to do to have a new bathroom toilet installed properly. Here are some of them. If you aren’t installing a new flange, be sure to clean off all the wax from the old wax ring. If you don’t, the new wax ring may not form a tight seal and then you’ll have a leak on your hands. If there is something on the floor, it will cause the toilet to rock and break the wax ring seal. Be sure to also use the plastic washer to ensure the bolts stay in place. Mark the placement of the bolts on the floor – Do this by placing a long ruler, screwdriver or stick (like a dowel) horizontally on the floor. Turn the toilet bowl upside down and put on the wax ring – Gently twist the wax ring on the bottom of the bowl to make sure it stays in place while you’re lifting the toilet for installation. Lift the toilet bowl up without letting the bottom touch the floor – If the bottom touches the floor the wax ring will shift and you’ll have to start over.
You have to be sure to line up the bolts on the floor with the bolt holes at the foot of the toilet. Get someone to spot you for this so you don’t end up breaking the toilet bowl. You can press down with your hands or simply sit on the bathroom toilet. This makes the wax ring seal to the flange and strengthens the seal at the bottom of the toilet bowl.
