Replacing a 3.5 gallon tank toilet with a 1.6 gallon tank toilet can save up to 350 gallons of water per week!
Installation of a toilet is a simple to complete project for any do-it-yourselfer. In addition to the tank and bowl, you'll also need:
1. A bolt set to affix the bowl to the floor/floor flange.
2. A wax ring to seal the opening between the bottom of the bowl and the flange.
- We suggest a urethane core wax ring with a rubber boot. "Waxless" rings are also available.
- Be sure the wax ring is seated securely and level on the bowl before placement. This will prevent any leaks after installation.
3. A supply line to connect the fresh water supply valve in the wall to the bottom of the tank.
- Be sure not to over-tighten the supply line connection under the tank. These are typically a plastic connection, and hand-tightening should be adequate.
- It is very important not to over-tighten the bolts that affix the bowl to the flange/floor, as well as the bolts between the tank and the bowl. Over-tightening on either can cause the china to crack or break.
