Installing a Toilet - Part 2


Toilet There are two, or three, holes in the bottom of the tank that you need to line up with two, or three, holes on the top of the bowl. Shift the tank gently until your mission is accomplished; then put a rubber washer on each of the tank bolts and set the bolts through the matching holes with the bolt heads on the inside of the tank.

 

 

Toilet From underneath the bowl, attach the washers and the nuts to these bolts. You'll want to tighten them with a ratchet wrench or basin wrench until snug but remember, don't over-tighten!

 

 

 

 

Toilet Cut a piece of supply tubing to fit between the shutoff valve and the toilet tank. Attach the line to the valve first, then to the ballcock tailpiece. Tighten the coupling nuts with adjustable wrenches until they're snug. It'll help if you hold the ballcock while tightening the coupling nut. Turn on the valve to fill the tank.

 

 

Toilet Your last task is to mount the toilet seat. Set the seat bolts into the toilet's mounting holes, screw the mounting nuts onto the seat bolts, and tighten them by hand. Note: toilet seats are usually not included with the toilet.
