The water supply line to your toilet is connected to the wall or floor; simply turn the valve to stem the flow of water (Image 1). Flush your toilet and keep the handle down to empty the toilet of water. You’ll be left with some water in the tank and some in the bowl. Use a large sponge and bucket to remove the remaining water in the tank.
Cost to Install a Toilet - Notes and General Information
- Know the material of the shower base. Oatey Plumber’s Putty is the most commonly used putty for No-Caulk Shower Drain installation - with exception of ABS which is explained in bullet 5. However, if the shower base is Granite, Marble, Quartz, Sandstone, Corian®, Plastic or any natural porous surface, it is necessary to use a Oatey Stain.
- A rock-solid toilet flange is the key to a leak-free toilet. The flange is the only thing anchoring the toilet to the floor. If the flange is loose or damaged, the toilet will rock. And a rocking toilet will distort the wax ring and cause leaks. So be sure to scrape off the old wax ring and inspect the flange.

Toilet Removal Tool
Free Toilet Removal Installation Service
Turn off the water supply at the toilet; however, old shut-off valves may not function and require water to be shut off at the main valve (see Shower Faucet Installation or VanityFaucet Installation). Advise occupants in the house that the water may be off for a short period to minimize any other household functions. Flush the toilet and remove the excess water from the tank and bowl. An old towel or sponge is good for this since it will have to be disposed of after this project is completed. You might use the empty boxes from the new toilet tank and bowl as trash containers.
Disconnect the water connector from the tank. The toilet may then be removed as one unit (a must if it is a one-piece fixture) or you may remove the tank from the bowl. Old tank bolts are usually impossible to unscrew so they may have to cut off from the bowl. Removing the toilet in two pieces (if it is a separate tank/bowl unit) is best for easy of handling. Keep in mind you will most likely still have some water in the trapway and tank, so use caution to prevent water damage to carpets and areas from the bathroom to the outside final disposal point.
Remove the old wax seal (or putty) as well as the mounting bolts.
Finally, keep in mind that if the replacement toilet is not to be installed immediately, you risk personal injury from hazardous gases that may leak from the flange opening (the drain in the floor). A large wet towel placed in the flange will keep unwanted gases from entering the living quarters. Do not use small rags or papers which may fall into the drain line causing blockage.
