Step 1: What You Need...
- A toilet with any nuts, bolts, etc. that come with it
- A wax toilet seal (It's round, made of wax, and is usually easy to find in the plumbing section of any store that also sells toilets)
- A crescent wrench
- A toilet seat/lid (if your toilet doesn't come with one. Toilets usually have very standard sizes, just remember to check what type of bowl your new toilet has)
Step 2: Setting in the Bowl
Around the drain hole there will be a metal ring attached directly to the floor with two bolt sticking up. If you are replacing the toilet, it is usually fine to reuse those bolts.
Being careful not to drop the toilet, turn it back over setting on the bolts (there will be holes in the base of the toilet for them)
Now, put the nut and washer on the bolt. Do not over tighten or the toilet will break. Tighten nuts until snug. Repeat on the other side.
Step 3: The Tank
Congratulations, your toilet should work now.
