Highlights:

Step 1: Run the Supply Lines

The water feed lines that come with the faucets are unique. Instead of threading a nut, these lines just snap into place with a clip (Image 1).

The water supply lines need to run from the faucet to the shutoff valve.

Hand thread them onto the bottom of the faucet stem and then onto the shut-off valve.

Screw the drain body onto the flange from underneath.

To get the watertight seal, tighten the lock nut from below with the wrench, and hold the top of the drain in place with two screwdrivers (Image 2).

Step 2: Install the Toilet

Replace the wax ring (Image 1) and place the toilet over it.

Make sure that the toilet fits over the ring securely.

Secure the nuts to the toilet (Image 2).
