Replace a Toilet Water Supply Line

For many people, plumbing is one of the most important aspects of their home. Unfortunately, many people do not know how to replace a toilet water supply line. Replacing a toilet water supply line can be a very difficult task and can take a lot of time.

Luckily, there are some easy ways to do this without any experience. In this blog post, we will guide you through an easy way to replace a toilet water supply line in your home in just minutes.

 

Tools needed:

  • Towels or rags
  • Wrench or pliers
  • New toilet supply line

 

Steps to Replace Toilet Supply Line

Step 1:  Turn off the water to the toilet.

Step 2: Shut off the main water supply to your home.

Step 3: Turn off the water supply line that goes from your water meter to your toilet.

Step 4: Remove the old toilet supply line by using a wrench or pliers. This is a very important step because you will not be able to install a new toilet supply line if you do not remove it first! 

Also, make sure that you use pliers and not a wrench because it will be easier for you to turn the nut with pliers than with wrenches.

Step 5: Remove any rust or corrosion from the threads of your new toilet supply line by soaking it in vinegar overnight. After soaking, dry the threads and then coat them with petroleum jelly to prevent any leaks that might occur in the future.

To prevent leaks, make sure that there is no petroleum jelly left on after installing your new supply lines. If there is any petroleum jelly left on, you will need to remove it.

Step 6: Thread the new toilet supply line into the old water line and make sure that it does not leak. If there are any leaks, you will need to use pipe tape to fix them.

Step 7: Turn on the main water supply valve and test for leaks by turning the water back on in your home. If there are no leaks, turn off the main water supply valve and your toilet should flush properly!

 

Tips & Warnings:

If you are not an experienced plumber, do not attempt to replace your toilet water supply line without the help of a professional. Even though this is an easy task for someone with plumbing experience, it can still be a very difficult task for someone who does not have any experience.
