  • Begin the process by turning disconnecting the supply line
  • Flush the toilet to remove the water from the bowl
  • Since there will be extra water left in the bowl, use a plunger to force the

    water down the drain

  • If water remains in the bowl, use a sponge to soak the water out

 

  • REMOVE THE OLD TOILET
    • Remove the trim caps from the base
    • Loosen and take off the washers and nuts
    • If you notice the nuts are rusted, remove them using a hacksaw
