Toilet Repair


Can a bolt at the base of the toilet be replaced without removing the toilet? In other words, do they make a type of bolt that can be inserted, twisted into a locking position and tightened?

Toilet Repair


If the bolt is loose and won't tighten, either the bolt is corroded and no good or the flange is damaged/broken. Both require removal of the toilet to repair properly. It is not a difficult job to remove a toilet. Shut off water, empty tank and bowl of water, remove bolts and water connection, remove toilet. Often the bolts/nuts are frozen and the nut has to be cut off. Always use brass replacement bolts.

Toilet Repair


Hello. Need an expert with toilet fill. My son, non-plumber, replaced my wax ring and says he did not touch anything inside tank, but now my toilet fills quietly at first and before it finishes, it whistles with the rest of the fill. Annoying. I have a 1.6 gallon, super flush, super quiet, standard toilet with flomaster valve, toilet cost about $150.00. Do you have any idea what causes he whistling fill and what adjustment I can make, if any?

Are you saying the bolts could cause this problem? I am a lady with no experience with toilets.
