      Hi everyone,
      I am going to lay vinyl tile in the bathroom and I would rather lift up the toilet than cut around it.

      Can someone point me to a “How to” description of how to turn off the toilet and unscrew it and lift it up without spilling water everywhere?

      Thanks for any help.

      shut off the water supply.flush the toilet. plung the toilet and if you want use a wet dry vack to suck most of the water out. unscrew the boltsnd the water supply and pick up the toilet keeping it level.put it in the tub and tile awau. use a new wax ring and follow the instructions on the box.seal around the base of the toilet with tub tile caulk. Happy flushing.
