|Back to the seemingly endless Master Bathroom Project...|
| Turn off the water supply at the shutoff valve and plug the drain opening with a rag to keep sewer gases in the pipes|
( you will know if you forget this step)
|If you're reusing the old flange, replace the 31⁄2-inch flange bolts. Purchase two 31⁄2-inch-long closet bolts. If you're replacing the flange, it must be screwed into a wooden floor. Use self-tapping concrete screws for concrete.|
|Place the wax ring on the flange|
Set the toilet over the anchor bolts and sit on the toilet, rocking it back and forth to seat the wax ring.
Slip a washer over the closet bolt. With a wrench tighten the nuts against the washer.
|Silicone the toilet in place. We put a thin layer on the bottom of the toilet before placing it on the wax ring. Then Todd filled any gaps with a silicone filled syringe|
|Once we had the toilet installed we realized that after being stored in the garage all winter the flush valve cracked|
so back to the hardware store where we purchased a Toilet Flush Valve Kit
