I'm a little wary when manufacturers say that there are no
tools needed to install one of their products. So when given the opportunity to
install a new toilet for my master bathroom, I decided to give the American
Standard Cadet 3 FloWise Right Height Complete No-Tools Toilet from The
Home Depot a try. It was one of the easiest toilet installs I have completed.
This toilet is a little taller than my old one, so I picked
up a longer supply line. After removing the old toilet and installing a longer
supply line, I put my tools away and opened the box of the new toilet. There I
found all the nuts and bolts I needed in separate bags, as well as, a new wax
ring. It did come with instructions, but
it so easy to tell what fasteners went with what part, I didn't need them.
Where I wouldn't have to work in a tight space, I set the
tank on the bowl before setting it in place on the closet flange. After that, I
put the wax ring on the flange and set the toilet over the bolts, attached the
supply line to the toilet and checked for leaks. Installed the seat, adjusted
the water level and I was done 45 minutes after I started. You don't need to
call a plumber to install this toilet.
You can do it yourself in less than an hour and save a service call.
