STEP 1
STEP 1: Disconnect Water Line from Toilet and
Empty Toilet of Water
A. Remove the toilet tank lid and put it in a safe place, out
of the way.
B. Turn the toilet tank water valve to the closed position.
This valve should be located on the wall behind the
toilet, to the left and near the floor. To close the valve,
turn it clockwise.
C. Flush twice to empty as much water from the toilet and
tank as possible and to ensure that the water inlet valve
has been properly closed.
D. Remove any remaining water in the tank and toilet bowl
with a sponge, bailer or a wet/dry vacuum.
E. Disconnect the water hose from the toilet tank and wall
valve. Use a wrench if needed.
STEP 2
STEP 2: Disassemble Toilet from Floor
A. Remove the trim caps that cover the closet bolts. Use a
screwdriver if needed. Closet bolts secure the toilet to
the floor and are located on the base of the toilet near
the floor. Remove the nuts from the closet bolts.
B. Lay newspaper and perhaps some plastic on the floor, to
place the toilet and tank on.
ENGLISH
C. Remove the toilet from its mount and place it on the
newspaper. To make handling of the toilet easier, you
may wish to remove the toilet tank. Disassemble the
tank from the toilet base by removing the fasteners
located in the bottom of the toilet tank. Or, you may
wish to get help from another person. With one person
on each side of the toilet, remove the entire toilet tank
and toilet assembly from the closet flange and place the
assembly on the newspaper.
NOTE: If you have difficulty removing the toilet, you may need to break the seal to the closet flange by rocking the
toilet from side to side.
D. Remove any remaining old wax or foam seal from the closet flange and toilet underside.
NOTE: Be careful not to drop anything down the open soil pipe. It is a good idea to temporarily block the open pipe.

STEP 3: Locate the Correct Spacer Base
Adjustment Holes
STEP 3
A. Place the base flat on the floor so that the lettering is
showing. Note that there are 6 pairs of numbered holes.
Also note that one end is labeled A, and the other end is
labeled B. The spacer base is reversible, either end can go
to the front, which means you have a selection of
12 positions. Installer Tip: Reversing the Toilevator® can
allow for a "ledge" for children to rest their feet on, if
desired.
B. Find the adjustment position by placing the toilet on top
of the spacer base. To correctly find the adjustment
position, the closet bolt holes of the toilet (those holes
on either side of the soil pipe opening if the toilet has
more than one set of bolt holes) should line up with one
of the six sets of numbered holes on the spacer base.
STEP 3A
Alternative installation
C. Choose a set of holes that allow the front edge of the
toilet base to come up as close as possible to the end of
the spacer base without overhanging, while completely
covering up the spacer base top surface holes. The back
of the Toilevator® does not need to be touching the
wall.
D. Record tile number of the correct spacer base holes and
whether the A end or the B end is closest to the wall.
(Example: 3A - toward the wall)
STEP 4
STEP 4: Install the Spacer Base and Soil Pipe
Extension
A. Remove the old closet bolts by sliding them out of the
slots of the floor flange.
C. Place the spacer base on the floor, over the closet flange,
with the closet bolts through the correct spacer base holes
(recorded tile number) and with the spacer base in the
correct orientation.
D. Unwrap one wax seal (supplied with the kit) and place
over the bottom end of the soil pipe extension. The black
plastic portion of the wax seal that protrudes should
always face down into the soil pipe.
E. Place the soil pipe extension with the wax seal into position in the closet flange by placing the soil pipe extension
over the closet bolts. The word "UP" on the soil pipe extension should face up. Push down until the wax seal is
seated firmly in the closet flange and the soil pipe extension is resting on top of the spacer base.
F. Place one of the round metal washers supplied with the kit over each closet bolt and screw on one hexagon nut over
each closet bolt. Tighten the hexagon nut down to hold the spacer in position. Do not over tighten. Check alignment.

ENGLISH
B. Replace with the new longer closet bolts that were
supplied with the kit, in the closet flange bolt receptacles.

STEP 5
STEP 5: Re-install the Toilet onto the Spacer Base
A. Take the other wax seal supplied with the kit, and put
onto the underside of the toilet. Push the wax seal around
the soil pipe opening until it rests on the porcelain.
B. Lower the toilet onto the spacer base with the closet bolts
coming through the bolt holes. It is easiest to lift the toilet
onto the spacer base with two people. Push the toilet
down firmly to set the wax seal into place. You can sit on
the toilet carefully, and use your weight to set the wax
seals into place. Make sure that the toilet and spacer are
reasonably perpendicular to the wall. Adjust the rotation
as necessary.
C. Place a plastic washer, supplied with the kit, over each
closet bolt.
D. Place the other flat metal washers, supplied with the kit,
over the closet bolts and on top of the plastic washers.
Fasten the second set of hexagon nuts over the closet
bolts until tight. bolts and on top of the plastic washers.
Fasten the second set of hexagon nuts over the closet
bolts until tight.
STEP 6
NOTE: Be careful not to overtighten the fasteners since
overtightening may cause the porcelain of the toilet to break.
E. Install the trim caps supplied with the kit over the
hexagon nut assembly and snap into place over the plastic
washer.
F. Re-assemble the toilet tank to the back of the toilet, if you
took it off.
STEP 6: Reconnect the Water Supply to the Toilet Tank
A. If your original cold water line is still long enough to
reach your toilet tank, you may reuse it. Otherwise, use
the extended flexible water hose supplied with the kit. If
you cannot reuse your previous water inlet connection or
the supplied water hose, check your local hardware store
for the correct water line fixture.
ENGLISH
NOTE: The supplied extended flexible water hose is for use
on compression outlet valves only. Do not use the supplied
water line on iron pipe stub outs, slip joint valves or flare
outlet valves. The supplied extended flexible water hose is
intended for normal household water pressure up to 100 psi.
If your system uses more than 100 psi., attach a higher
pressure hose.
B. Turn the water inlet valve to the open position, counter clockwise. With the water valve open, the toilet tank should
fill with water and the toilet should be ready to flush. Try flushing once or twice before use.
NOTE: If the water hose connections are leaking, tighten the connections with a wrench until it stops.
C. Replace the toilet tank lid.
D. It is highly recommended that, a bead of silicone sealant be applied between the spacer base and the toilet as well
as between the spacer base and the floor. This will prevent the spacer base and the toilet from moving as the toilet
is used.
