Steps in Toilet Installation

Perform Pre-Installation Checks

Before beginning the toilet installation process, it is important to perform some pre-installation checks. First, we measure the rough-in dimension to ensure that the new toilet will fit properly in the designated space. Next, we inspect the water supply line and stop valve for any leaks or corrosion that may affect the installation. We examine the subfloor for any damage or unevenness that could impact the stability of the toilet. Then, we check that the flange is in good condition and securely attached to the floor. Lastly, we make sure that we have all the necessary products, such as a wax ring, bolts and washers, before starting the installation process.

Remove the Old Toilet

To remove the old toilet, we start by turning off the water supply line and flushing the toilet to empty the tank and bowl. Next, we disconnect the toilet handle, water supply line, toilet bolts and closet bolts. Next, we use a putty knife to scrape off the old wax ring and carefully remove the old toilet base. We take a moment to inspect the toilet flange and repair or replace it if necessary. Lastly, we dispose of the old toilet properly, following local regulations.

Install the Wax Ring on the New Toilet

When installing a new toilet, it is imperative to ensure a secure seal to prevent leaks and water damage. We begin the installation process by placing a toilet wax ring onto the toilet flange. The new wax ring itself is designed to create an airtight seal between the toilet and the flange. We make sure it is centered correctly.

Next, we carefully lower the toilet bowl onto the wax ring, taking care to align the bolts with the holes on the bottom rubber base of the toilet. Once we have positioned it correctly, we press down firmly on the bowl to compress the wax ring and create a watertight seal. Finally, we tighten the nuts and bolts on both sides of the base of the toilet using a wrench to secure it in place.

Secure the Toilet Bowl

When installing a toilet bowl, it is important to use closet bolts, washers and nuts to securely fasten it in place. We tighten them evenly to ensure that the entire toilet itself is stable and does not wobble. A secure installation not only prevents leaks but also ensures proper functionality of the toilet.

After the pre-installation checks and removal of the old toilet, the next step is to place the toilet tank. Once we have ensured that the floor flange is level and secure, we line up the bolts with the holes in the flange and carefully lower and lift the tank onto the bowl. We make sure to tighten the nuts on both sides of each bolt evenly to avoid cracking or damaging the porcelain.

The next step is to install the fill valve, water supply line and flush valve. These components connect to different parts of your toilet tank and ensure proper water pressure and flow for flushing.

Once everything is in place, we test the new toilet to ensure proper flushing, water supply and no leakages. We do this by filling up the tank with water, flushing it a few times and checking for any leaks or unusual noises.

Attach the Toilet Tank Lid

Attaching the toilet tank lid is the finishing touch to a successful toilet installation. Before attaching the tank cover the lid, we make sure all bolts and screws are tight and secure. Then, we carefully place the lid on top of the tank, aligning it with any hinges or grooves that may be present. We gently press down to ensure a snug fit and prevent any wobbling or shifting. Once in place, we give the lid a light tap to ensure it is secure and won't move during use.

Professional toilet installation is crucial because experts ensure that the toilet bowl is properly aligned and stable, preventing any wobbling or potential damage. Hiring a professional plumber guarantees a secure seal between the toilet flange and wax ring, eliminating the risk of leaks. Additionally, professional installation minimizes the chances of damaging the bathroom floor or subfloor during the installation process. A professional plumber can accurately connect the water supply line, fill valve and stop valve, ensuring proper functionality of the toilet. Professional toilet installation also saves homeowners the hassle of dealing with complex plumbing tasks.

Maintaining Your Toilet Post-Installation

To ensure the longevity and proper functioning of your newly installed toilet, it is essential to perform regular maintenance tasks. Start by checking the base of the toilet for any water supply line or wax ring leaks. Additionally, make it a habit to clean the toilet seat, bowl and flange regularly to prevent the buildup of bacteria and corrosion. Applying caulk around the base of the toilet can help seal any gaps and prevent water damage. If you notice a weak flush, inspect the fill valve, flange and the water supply valve and line for blockages or malfunctions. Promptly address any uneven floor issues, as they can impact the stability of the toilet and lead to leaks over time.
