How To Install A Toilet
One of the jobs most people cringe over is the toilet. We don’t like cleaning it, we don’t like repairing it and we of course don’t like installing them. For this reason it is a good idea that we hire someone who does handyman jobs in the woodlands, tx to install a new toilet for us if the plumbing is already in place. Handymen are skilled and can do this task with no problem, but if you want to try it yourself, follow the steps below.
How to install your toilet
1. Measure the height of the floor before you install the wax ring or rubber flange. This is so that it will be easier for you to adjust it once it has been installed correctly.
2. Keep in mind that toilets have a hole on either side, and they usually contain a flange. The flange helps stabilize the toilet so that it cannot move around too much and allows you to mount the toilet properly on the floor.
3. If you have hard water, then keep in mind that this will cause your toilet to stain with lime scale build up over time. This is why it would be good for you to use a water softener, which is essentially a salt based chemical that you would need to purchase at a store. If you do not have hard water, then this step won’t really apply to you.
4. Please note that your toilet should be bolted directly onto the flooring in your bathroom if possible. If it is not bolted directly underneath the floor, then you would need to make sure that it is at least screwed into the floor firmly. Another option for you is to add some adhesive pads or something of that sort underneath your toilet seat if it’s not bolting on directly.
Once your toilet is connected to the floor, you need to hook up the water. This is done by a hose under the toilet. Once connected you should be able to turn on the water and fill it up.
Flush the toilet a few times to make sure everything is working. If everything looks good, you are go to go. Pun Intended.
