    tldr: what's the wisest way to proceed with levelling this bathroom subfloor over years, after replacing gaskets, replacing the toilet, and using shims under the toilet, i finally began the subfloor replacement in the area beneath the toilet to resolve the toilet not sitting flush and water...

    New (5 year old) toilet with new looking parts won’t flush. It’s not clogged, just keeps running and making a lot of noise. Chain, valve etc. look new so I’m not sure what the issue is. When I try to flush the valve raises as it should and it makes a lot of noise but the water in the bowl...

    We recently bought a 1960's house and have started working on renovating the basement bathroom. The bathroom is on concrete slab and the drain lines are made out of cast iron (photos below). We are replacing the shower and will be adding in a tiled floor before reinstalling the toilet. Here's...

    After about 5 years a new toilet installation is now leaking at the wax seal. It's obvious the wax ring has detached from the bottom of the toilet, letting lots of water seep out, whenever it is flushed. Not a torrent, but more than drips; more like a drizzle for a couple of seconds at each...

    I need replace the subfloor underneath the toilet. How would I find out how thick the subfloor is or how many layers there are without ripping it out? The bathroom has vinyl sheet floor and the bathroom is slightly raised from the hallway. I went under the crawlspace to check the depth from the...

    Hi Ran into a problem replacing my toilet. Previous owner installed an extender on the flange as the flange is about an inch below the floor. However, I cannot remove the bolts as it appears as though the extender was installed over the bolts so the keyhole is partially covered by the...

    Any issues with the attached diagram? Code is a toilet must be vented within 6’ (3” drain). Note the 2” wet drain from the sink. Do I need to add another vent? If so, is that an appropriate way to do so?

    Hi, we bought an old cabin in the woods this past spring. We gutted the place, but installed a new toilet bowl only - the tank and water line are not attached. The toilet bowl is connected to septic tank without water. We use buckets from the lake to flush it. We have no other plumbing installed...

    Owned an older house for about 4 years now, and this toilet i've seen questionable grout lines look wet about 4 inches around the base and also has smelled sometimes (that could be from my 5 year old son missing the bowl though, haha). I did some investigating in the basement, and appears at...

    Hello, I am considering adding a bathroom to my basement. I don't have the original blueprint for the house but I am going to assume what I can. The red capped pipe in the back is where I would put the toilet? The black and pvc pipe behind the toilet is for a vent? The red capped with pvc pipe...

    Hey there, I’m replacing my toilet, watched several videos, and all the existing pipes people connect the flange to look to be straight. Of course, I remove my toilet and it appears the existing pvc pipe “flares” I purchased a 3” and 4” plug (for while we do tile work) and neither fit. I’m...

    Hey everyone. So I messed up my plumbing underground for my basement bathroom and my underground comes out too high for my toilet flange. (My slope is perfect I just miscalculated where to start it). It's all cemented and tiled now as you can see in the picture. What would you recommend I do? My...

    Hi. I pulled up my half bathroom's linoleum flooring to replace it with vinyl. The floor is concrete because we are at the bottom floor of a condo building. With the toilet removed, I can see that the hole in the concrete where the closet flange is seems to have a gap where concrete has broken...

    Hello, We have a toilet that makes a loud noise after flushing - happens sporadically. I had a plumber come by - he flushed it multiple times but could not replicate the problem. I finally was able to catch it on video - see the link. Thank you, Chris

    Hopefully this is appropriate for the forum! I certainly think so, but anyhow. I have a leak around the base of a toilet. It seem pretty cut and dried that it must be a bad seal from under the base. So I just took up the toilet, after running to the hardware store and getting a new wax/seal, but...

    Hello, I have a SaniPlus toilet in my basement that was installed a few years back and the other day I went into the basement and notice the outlet had tripped that the toilet is attached too. I could not reset the outlet unless I unplugged the toilet, so I ran an extension cord to the toilet...

    Hi, I have a kohler 2 piece toilet and the tank keeps losing water. I have replaced the triangle tank gasket, the fill valve, the flush valve, and the toilet seal... but it still slowly loses water. I am not seeing a leak anywhere any water or wetness, so i am assuming it is leaking into the...

    Hi everybody, I'm thinking about installing a recessed toilet. Something like Toto Aquia: I'm just not sure regarding rerouting the waist pipe. How complex would it be? I'd appreciate some hints on this. Thanks, Ruben

    I'll be doing my basement renovation for the next month and I'm wondering if anyone could have any idea for my new toilet system. I'm thinking that this easy to install upflush toilet can be perfect for my basement space. Has anyone tried it and do you think it will be easy to do? I've heard...
