    Hey there,

    interesting read on how to install a toilet from scratch.  Reading your article it seems to be easy to install your toilet but still, I do have doubts.  what happens if the toilet is on the second floor, do you need to install a sewer line?

    Yes, you save hundreds of dollars by installing the toilet yourself, but you could end up thousands of dollars if you mess up with it.

    Regards,

    jivita

      Hi jivita, thanks for your question.

      Within this article, we are showing you how to replace your old toilet without needing to hire a plumber.

      You won’t need to install a new sewer line since that would have already been in place from the outset.

      I hope this helps to clarify things for you.

    Thank you for this post. I never knew one could install a toilet by all themselves, I always thought it had to be professionally done by a plumber. The 8 installation steps are very easy to follow. I have a question, my toilet was changed a while ago. Now the seat keeps coming off. The screws look very complicated, how do I fix it?

      Hi Juliet.  Thank you for reading and leaving a comment

      Usually, you can use a simple wrench to tighten complicated-looking screws, or another option is to use your hands.

    I read through your article and I found out that it was very enlightening and challenging. One does not always have to wait for others to do some household installations for him but to task oneself in doing it. I also like the picture quality of your photos. thumbs up

    This information is exceptionally great to see here and I must say that I really fancy it since it has met with my needs. I just moved into a new apartment and I’m doing an overhaul of the place. Hence, getting major things like the toilet and all was essential. So, seeing a way to save up cost is really great for me to see here through DIY toilet fixing. Thank you

    Though I never tried to install a toilet before, I find your article interesting! It’s not really hard to install a toilet, as you explained so easily, and only a few tools are required.

    But you know, replacing the old one is a nasty type job, as water may flashback anytime if I do it with my inexperienced hand. So, I need to know how you make the old one totally vacant.

    All the other steps are well explained and I understood those well.

    Thank you.
