Removing the Old Toilet

Shut off the water supply to the toilet. After the water supply is disconnected, flush the toilet several times. Flushing repeatedly will remove the water from inside the tank and most of the water from the bowl. If there is any water left in the bowl, use a container to scoop it all out. If you leave any water in the old toilet it may leak out when you carry it through your home to dispose of it.
