How to drain toilet without tank?
 
Alright so last night i had a party at my house. I go into my bathroom to take a piss and my entire bathroom and closet are flooded in water. The entire tank is broken and water is spewing everything.

Needless to say NOBODY owned up to it and basically i was stuck with cleaning my bathroom all night.

Not a good party and probably won't have another one.


Anyways some ******* i guess decided to piss in my ****ing toilet after i cleaned everything up!


So now i have to replace my toilet but the bowl is full of stale nasty smelling piss.

Please someone help me out here, how do i make this thing drain!?

Shopvac, sponge, or if you pick it up and keep it level, you might not spill it out.

haha maybe a shopvac but sponge no way! It's like a full toilet bowl. I was afraid of shopvac being my only option.

Fill a bucket with water and pour it quickly into the bowl and the toilet will flush the same as if the tank was there. Then all you need to do is siphon out the clean water to empty it.

The Engineer is correct...that was going to be my advice. Quickly dumping a bucket of water into the bowl is the quickest and easiest way to manually flush a toilet and will only leave a cup or two of water which can be scooped out with a small cup (liquid laundry soap measure) or wicked up with a rag.

If it's full to the brim you are going to have to siphon a few inches off first, and as already suggested, a wet vac is first choice otherwise it's like bailing a boat. A little bleach will sanitize anything that came in contact with urine.

A turkey baster will suck out the water quite well. Never tried the shop vac, but it would be quicker

Ok i think im gonna try the bucket idea, do i pour it into the actual bowl itself or the hole on the back of the toilet where the tank use to be?

If the toilet bowl was full to the brim, that means it is clogged and bailing out a few inches and quickly adding more may or may not dislodge the clog.

After bailing out a few inches from the overflowing toilet bowl, use a plunger and/or snake.

Once you get the toilet to flush using a bucket of water, repeat a few times in quick succession and then bailing out what remains in the bowl won't be so nasty.
