In this lesson Claude Taylor will set the tank back into place after the tank-to-bowl kit has been properly installed. Then washer and nut placement are shown to ensure a secure connection between the tank and bowl. Then the FluidMaster ball cock assembly will be prepared for installation and placed in the tank. Then the refill tube with optional extension is installed into the tank.

You will see the steps required to take your malfunctioning or old toilet from your bathroom and turn it into a series of pieces. The difficulties and frustrations that can come from DIY plumbing aren't ignored here, Claude shows the roadblocks he runs into on his particular project and shows you just how he handles them.
