The instructions below are for installing a new two-piece toilet onto the existing flange where an old two-piece toilet has been removed. If you want to install a new toilet in a different location, you will have to modify the existing plumbing lines for the toilet base and tank, according to your local plumbing codes. A project of that size is best left to All Glendale Plumbing Heating and Cooling Contractors.

Using a putty knife, scrape the residue remaining from the wax ring seal off both the floor and toilet drain flange (and toilet, if you are reusing it). Then, slip each floor mounting bolt, head first, into an adjusting slot of the toilet drain flange.

Lay the base of the toilet gently on its side or upside down and then fit and press the new wax ring seal to the horn (lip) at the toilet's drain opening. If the new wax ring has a plastic or rubber sleeve on one side, position it so it's facing away from the toilet.

In these step-by-step-instructions you will be able to remove and replace that old uncomfortable and broken toilet. Using the pair of pliers you will need to turn off the water supple valve to the toilet. Turn the valve to right to tighten it closed. Flush the toilet to ensure the water is off, if so the tank will not refill.

When the water is off, remove the supply line located on the underside of the tank. Now on the base of the toilet remove the plastic caps and nuts, then gently lift toilet and remove from area.
