    Need recommendation on toilet to get from big box stores

    How its made I had a toilet where the rim was badly warped on one side, you can see how that can happen here, when removing from the mold., they are still pliable.

    Need recommendation on toilet to get from big box stores

    Sure, that will work :rolleyes: Just wonder though, how sure are you the spot you set it on was dead level? Did you try placing over the flange without wax, and seeing how bad it was there? Heck in my home, if your garage was dead level, then that toiled would have probably been a dead on...

    Question about Polyseamseal or other caulk

    Acrylic Latex I used this looks real good. Spend the $5 for a caulk finishing tool, (lots of generic versions, less than half the price shown) works great.. perfect finish in ~5 minutes time. If you are only looking for Polyseamseal, you want this.

    Toilet supply valve help

    Remove You probably do not need to get the torch close to the joint itself. I'd try cutting up a coffee can, flatten it out and configure to drop over the stub to shield the wall. I see more of a problem sweating a new valve on. If you can clean up he copper pipe and there is enough there...

    Wax Ring question

    I pulled a toilet, there is an ABS flange that resembles an LP (remember those?) left in a hot car. The flange is fairly flush with the finished floor , not on top. Should I go with a thicker than standard wax ring? I've also read here to place the ring on the flange, then drop in the bowl...

    Need some help regarding misaligned flange, please take a look at picture

    Spanner Flange Screw down a spanner flange on top. Put the toilet bowl bolts up through the spanner flange before fixing on top what you have. What you have looks flush to floor, so you have the space needed to fix.

    Caroma Caravelle 270 just installed ... doesn't seem to be flushing well

    to adjust buttons I think there is a screw to raise or lower actuators. The flush valve is removed by just twisting to left and it pops out, you can check the disk settings on the valve.

    Caroma Caravelle 270 just installed ... doesn't seem to be flushing well

    flush The two flush actuators do not look the same height, are both buttons functioning with only a little free play? The water level is raised by taking a clip off the inlet valve near bottom, you then twist slightly to free and it slides up or down then twist it back and install the clip...

    Bowl Section: What's supposed to be included in the box?

    Shipping Just received a toilet tank, lid had the lugs broken off. The tank was shipped with the lid on the tank, not packed well in my opinion. I received a Toto earlier, very well packed. The tank lid was in its own box on that one.. Shipping toilets is perhaps a high risk venture if...

    Penguin Toilets W/ Overflow Protections

    All kinds I've seen posts from "men" where it takes a thread to explain how to install a standard flapper. I have an older American Standard Round bowl (down from two recently) where the water volume in the bowl can be absolutely normal, and if clogged and flushed, you are talking a boat...

    Toilet Bowl Seal

    I have seen some photos of toilet installs where the white silicone <?> sealer around the bowl at the floor does not extend to the rear of the base. Is there a reason for this? I can't recall seeing a toilet done that way here, the sealer goes all around.:confused: (I did try searching...
