Installing a Toilet is a relatively easy job for a homeowner. With a couple of wrenches, a screwdriver and a few shims, and a new toilet a UES Plumbing Heating and Cooling can install a toilet in about one hour.

A toilet usually consists of two main parts: a bowl and a tank. It is best to first install the toilet bowl. Prior to installing the toilet bowl, check if the toilet closet flange has been temporarily plugged with insulation or a rag to prevent sewer from escaping. Remove this. Next install the toilet bowl on top of the toilet closet flange to determine if it sits level. If it does not, prepare some shims to use later. Next remove the toilet bowl, and insert the toilet closet bolts into the slots on the toilet closet flange. Then turn the bowl over and install a toilet wax ring gasket over the outlet of the toilet bowl. This outlet is also known as the “horn”.
