cut pipes with tubing cutter
Connect the Water Pipes
Install an appropriately sized pipe elbow onto the “spud” receptacle at the back of the toilet, follow the manufacturer’s instructions (Image 1).
Measure, cut and install the pipe that extends from the tank to the toilet. Also measure, cut and install the water supply pipe. Use a tubing cutter and make neat, square cuts to ensure watertight joints. (Image 2)
Use compression nuts to attach both pipes at top and bottom. (Image 3) Tighten the nuts with a strap wrench to avoid scratching the metal’s chrome plating.
Determine the length of the pull chain, cut it to size and attach it to the tank lever. (Image 4)
