I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Delta Faucets. I received a product sample and promotional item as a thank you for participating.
|My brand new Delta Corrente Toilet|
Step 1: Remove the old toilet
|Yeah... it's time for an upgrade|
Step 2: Remove the old wax ring
|New wax ring = orangey colored. Old wax ring - black...|
Step 3: Installing the Delta Corrente Toilet Bowl
Grab the Delta Corrente Toilet bowl from the box and place it over the two bolts that were holding the old toilet in place. If the toilet slides in easily without a hitch, you're in luck! You won't have to replace the old bolts with new bolts. But just in case you have to change them, the Delta Corrente Toilet comes with the bolts and instructions on how to install them. I didn't need to install them so I can't speak of that. Once you placed the bowl over the bolts, make sure that the toilet is sitting firmly on the floor and not on the bathroom tile or anything like that. If the toilet is on tile, you may have to remove the tile and have them cut with a wet saw to fit around the toilet. If it's firmly on the floor, place the washers over the bolts as shown in the instructions and tighten a nut to secure the toilet. Place the cap provided over the bolts to hide them from view.
Step 4: Installing the Delta Corrente Toilet Tank
Now that the bowl is in place, you will need to stall the tank that holds the water. Make sure to attach the rubber hexagon to the tank BEFORE placing the tank on the toilet. The rubber hexagon thing acts as a barrier between the toilet bowl and tank and you DO NOT want to apply pressure to your tank because it's pressed up against the bowl. Once you have that in place, place the tank over the bowl and slide the bolts through the three holes in the bowl. Tighten the nuts through the bolts using the special tool provided. Once all three are done, connect the hose coming from the tank to the water line.
Step 5: Installing the Toilet Seat
Now, this was pretty cool. The Delta Corrente Toilet seat has the ability to slide back and forth, depending on your preference. Grab the seat and then press the red tabs together. This allows you to slide the part of the toilet seat that needs to be attached to the toilet bowl. Place the two anchors with the screws in the holes on the toilet bowl. Remove the screws and place the toilet seat "thingy" on top of them so that you can screw it in place. Once you have done that, you can slide in the toilet seat until it snaps into place.
Step 6: Turn the water on and look for leaks
|Making sure there are no leaks before turning the water back on|
Now, the very last thing to do would be to cover the base of the toilet with silicone or some caulking. You can pick up a tube of the stuff from your local hardware store for no more than $5. Then, just run it around your toilet. Done and done!
