Toilet repair
« on: July 13, 2020, 02:37:37 PM »
I have 1984 Southwind. The water line directly behind toilet is leaking at the nut. The leak is not coming from underneath moho. I can't get to it without removing toilet. I can't find the bolts to remove the toilet. Can someone please tell me how to get to it?

Welcome to the forum.
What brand and model number is the toilet?
Is the leak at the nut that makes up to the toilet ?

There should be bolts either at 12 o'clock and 6 o'clock or 9 o'clock and 3 'o'clock. There could be covers over the bolt heads to make it look ptetty. Remove the covers to expose the bolts.

Yeap, just two bolts through the bottom and into the floor. Not always at 3 & 9 or 6 & 12 - some of the older ones were at odd positions. Probably don't have obvious raised caps like a residential toilet, but they are there.   What is the brand of toilet? And model name or number, if you can find it.

This piece about an older Southwind toilet may help:

On a Sea Land toilet there is a collar around the base pedistal.  This can be removed.

Sea-land uses 4 bolts 12-3-6-9 positions standard toilet bolts 7/16Nut I think

Tetford.. Depends on the model.

welcome to the Forum!

Look for some type of cover for the nuts in the toilet base.  They are there.
