  1. You said to hammer the like button and now I need a new phone

  2. You never leveled the toilet. A main step on instalation. You put a level on the toilet. This is a step that must be done.

  3. This was an amazingly detailed explanation and was very straight forward…thank you, this was a big help and an excellent presentation – bravo!

  4. I want to move the existing toilet across the bathroom. Need under house plumbing instructions.

  5. Thank you for a well put vid on installation for a toilet! Can’t go wrong with Kohler either!

  6. Shark bite angle stop 😂😂😂

  7. I followed your step by step guide and you turned a scary project for me into an easy one. Don’t know how many other projects I will complete myself but this girl will subscribe to your channel just to show some support. Thank you!

  8. This video shows that the toilet tank is set exactly to wall, and this is the right position. Not the toilet tank faraway from the wall, like many videos shows !!!
    This depends on how you install the main toilet drain from the wall, in America it should 10" to 12" from the wall, in Europe and middle east 22 cm to 24 cm according to the toilet type, (if its American type it comes 10" to 12" / but if it European it comes 22cm to 24 cm)… coming with flexible flang rubber not wax flange like America.
    I see that flexible flange rubber is more easier to install than wax flange, it gives more free distance to play with the toilet position

  9. Thanks so much for all your videos! I'm just finishing a 1200sq ft addition. Your videos have by far been the most valuable resource for me. With your videos I've been able to do the entire addition without paying contractors. You're awesome thanks!

  10. I felt like I should be able to do this job but I am worried about setting it properly on the first go and not ruining the wax seal. However, now that I've watched a couple videos, I'm terrified of what I'm going to find concerning the flange. The toilet was a long time ago and most likely the flange has metal that has rusted. An extra wax seal is no problem, but flange replacement looks a lot more complicated.

  11. Im 15 and Im not even replacing a toilet, why am I watching this?

  12. My greatest fear about DIY'ing this is the wax ring leaking and then the poo poo water draining into the crawl space. By the time you would smell it you would have a massive problem. Any tips?

  13. You don't need all that crap

  14. Thanks for this video! Very helpful.
