Oftentimes, we need to replace the internal components of our toilets. The plastic and metal parts wear out and need to be replaced for the toilet to function properly.
Fortunately, this is an inexpensive and easy home improvement project. Most hardware stores carry a “toilet repair kit” that costs around $18-20 that includes all the components you’ll need for this project. In fact, you’ll have some parts leftover, because the kits come with lots of parts to cover various types of toilets you may be using with the kit.
As noted in the video, you need to start by tearing the old components out of the toilet. Of course, you’ll do this after shutting off the water supply — typically a valve right next to the toilet, close to the floor.
Once the old parts have been removed, there will be some necessary clean-up, especially where the tank attaches to the toilet base.
Now, you just need to install the new parts from the toilet repair kit.
This is a fairly easy DIY project that may require a second person, just because the toilet tank can be somewhat awkward to move.
What challenges do you have with your toilet? Leaking flapper valve, running fill valve, etc.? Let us know your toilet issues in the comments section and we’ll do a new post!
