You Can Do ~ Quick Fix
Today we are fixing the toilet handle that broke! And YOU Can Do It Too!
It is a simple fix that the plumber would charge you 1 hours work for a 5 minute (max) job!
OK, let's do this!
Open the lid of the toilet tank and set it aside. Take the wrench and turn it counter clockwise (righty tighty, lefty loosey) to loosen the nut. Use your fingers to finish loosening the nut and slid it down the length of the handle bar.
Lift the bar (the water does not need to be shut off)
and remove the clip that holds the bar to the chain. Don't drop the chain, just slip it into your hand to hold.
Take off the nut.
Slip the old bar/handle out of the hole in the tank front.
Put the new handle rod thru the hole in the front of the tank. Slip on the nut. Hook the clip/chain thru the desired hole (I measured the other handle to find out where it was before).
Hold the handle firmly, let the rod drop and slip the new nut onto the threads.
Tighten with your fingers.
Cinch up the nut, just a bit, so the handle does not flop. And there you have it.
It's all done and looks great! See how easy that was? And look at what you saved... Labor for a Plumber for 1hr = $51 to $276.
