Insert the tank bolts through the base of the tank. Position the tank over the bowl and lower it gently into place.
Secure the nuts and washers to attach the bowl to the tank. Make sure the tank is level.
When the tank is level, set the tank lid on top of the tank. Do not seal the joint between the lid and the tank.
To finish connecting the toilet to the water supply, tighten the compression nut and then open the shut-off valve.
Run a bead of bathroom caulk along the bottom of the toilet. This seals the joint between the toilet and the floor.
