Glacier Bay Toilet Installation Instructions

Save

Home Depot sells the Glacier Bay line of plumbing fixtures. The toilet line has several models, with the All-in-One being a popular choice of professional builders, remodelers and do-it-yourselfers looking for a quality, affordable toilet. Glacier Bay toilets are heavy, so get a willing helper if you are not up to heavy lifting.

Things You'll Need

  • Adjustable wrench
  • Screwdriver
  • Place the plastic flange on the drain, and screw it to the floor. Slip the anchor bolts, threaded end up, into the slots on the flange. Slide the wax ring around the the hole on the underside of the toilet.

  • Straddle the toilet bowl, lift and lower it onto the anchor bolts. Sit on the toilet, and gently rock back and forth to set the wax ring. Place the nuts on the anchor bolts, and hand-tighten them. Give the nuts a final turn with the adjustable wrench, but do not over-tighten.

  • Snap off the extra anchor bolt by tapping it with the wrench. Screw on the bolt cap.

  • Lift the tank and place it onto the bowl. Align the tank's bolt holes with holes at the top-rear of the bowl. Guide bolts into the holes and tighten them by holding the tank nut bolt with a wrench while tightening the bolt with a screwdriver.

  • Set the shutoff valve over the compression ring (small water pipe coming out the wall) and hand-tighten the nut. Connect the small end of the plastic supply line to the shutoff valve and the other end to the bottom of the tank. Hand-tighten both ends.

  • Align the two holes at the back of the toilet seat with the holes on the bowl. Insert the toilet seat bolts and tighten them with a screwdriver while holding the nut with your other hand.

  • Turn on the water at the main cutoff, turn on the toilet shutoff valve and fill the tank. Set the tank lid, and flush to test.
