Removing a toilet

I want to convert my half-bath to a utility room and would like to remove the toilet.   I would like to do this in a manner that will allow the toilet to be re-installed at a later date if possible.

Hello KimberlyJune!


What an interesting use of your space!


You have at least two options for plugging the drain pipe after you remove the toilet:


1) A 4-inch Mechanical Plastic Test Plug will provide a temporary drain closure that can easily be removed later; and

2) A Four-inch PVC Drain Cap which glues in place, but can be cut off later when the toilet is ready to reinstall.

Other options exist, but these are the two least costly and most immediate solutions.


NOTE: If your drain is three-inch, ask your Plumbing Associate to show you three-to-four-inch conversion couplings or similar caps for three-inch pipe.
