When looking at the amazon lists, choose "purchased and unpurchased" to see the entire lists. Great pod fellas.
I'm a big fan of these quick tips. However I'm sad to see finehomebuilding sponsor Home Depot so prominently. I loath the big box stores because everything they sell is of questionable quality. Wood, tile, paint - it's all just horrible.
I would add a giant asterisk that says "only do this if you're on a public sewer system, not septic".
Depending on weather, paint brushes should only be used for about an hour before cleaning.
I don't like adding caulk. One, it won't allow leaks through and even if you leave a few spots open in the back, the leak could take a while to make it there. And who looks at the back of their toilet for water anyway. Two, the caulk will inevitably turn a rotten yellow/brown color, especially if there are more boys in the house than girls. I also don't like the use of full turn water valves. Quarter turns work better, quicker and look nicer. I wasn't aware of the rubber gasket materiel. Could be a nice alternative to plastic wedges.
