Building a Private Bathroom in Your Home


So, you’re unhappy with your current toilet and want to upgrade to something fancier. Why don’t you enjoy your bathroom? Do you have one of those round-front toilets that are too little for a mature man to use with any degree of comfort? So, let’s assume that the answer is yes for the sake of this post.

The best action is to get a new toilet if your current one has a round front rather than an extended or egg-shaped seat. I will walk you through switching out your existing outhouse with a modern convenience you’ll adore.

First, you’ll want to find the bolts that secure the toilet to the floor, and then you may take your measurements from there to the wall. You must know that number to avoid purchasing a bathroom too close to the border or far away. That will serve as your initial estimate.

The second step is to find an extended toilet that you like and has the necessary rough-in dimensions printed on the box.

Step 3: Shop for a new wax ring and bolts for the bathroom. The staff there can answer your question; they get asked daily where something is.

The fourth step is buying all the goods you’ve found and bringing them back home. Always bend your knees to lift or compel a friend to assist you.

Five, stop the flow of water to the lavatory. To cut off the water supply, look on the left side of the toilet tank for a shutdown valve or knob and turn it clockwise.

Sixth, turn off the water’s adjustable source. If water spills onto the floor, quickly mop it up with a cloth or a basin.

Seventh, check the toilet’s floor bolts to ensure they’re not loosened. To loosen the nuts on the bolts, crank them counterclockwise using the pliers you’re already holding. You’ll need to reduce these nuts by turning them.

Put your friend in the position of assisting you to move the old toilet to a less conspicuous area (step eight).

The ninth step is to examine the floor for any disgusting slimy substances. You’re probably curious and want to reach out and touch it. If you want to feel it, go ahead. Don’t touch it unless you want that crap all over the place.

Tenth, assemble the toilet by the manufacturer’s directions. I can’t provide you with specific instructions because each one is unique.

Eleventh, with the assistance of your hapless pal, drop the toilet onto the newly installed bolts and wax ring. Bolts on the left and right sides of the floor flange or hole for the bathroom. That flange or hole must be encircled with wax.

Step 12: Install the nuts and securely fasten the bolts. You’ll have to figure out which way they can only turn. Be careful not to overtighten and crack the porcelain. To make the nut even tighter, you need only tighten it until it reaches a snug fit.

The thirteenth step is to attach the toilet’s flexible water supply to the tank.

Fourteenth, fill the tank back up with water by rotating the valve knob counterclockwise. If you notice water leaking from the toilet or any of its connections, switch off the water supply and remedy the problem immediately.

A flushing toilet that works perfectly at this stage is yours to use. Follow the manufacturer’s guidelines if your toilet isn’t flushing correctly. If you’re still stuck after reading the manual, look for a phone number to call for assistance.

If you’re still having trouble, it’s time to bring in a professional plumber. Don’t risk drowning yourself or your belongings by going outside today. If you are unsure of your plumbing skills, it is best to consult a professional plumber for assistance.
