Disconnect the Toilet

Unscrew the nuts that attach the toilet to the water supply line. Then, remove the caps that cover the bolts on the base of the toilet. Unscrew the nuts located under the caps. Lay out your towels or newspapers, then lift the toilet from its position, being careful to hold the bowl, not the seat. Place the toilet on the towels or newspapers.
