How to Replace a Toilet

Don't be intimidated. With this step-by-step guide, you can upgrade your toilet to a modern, water-saving commode

There are plenty of adventurous homeowners who are willing to take on formidable projects around the house, but for many of them, replacing a toilet isn’t even on the radar screen. Somehow the combination of an imposing, bolted-down ceramic fixture; a pressurized water line; and an open drain leading directly to a sewer is enough to turn off some pretty handy people. But if you can get past the gamey parts, replacing a toilet isn’t that big a deal. Manufacturers have even made the hard part—hooking up the supply line—a lot easier than it used to be. So if you’re ready to list that old avocado-green throne on eBay and upgrade to a modern, water-saving commode, this article will show you how to do it.
