    Re: Removing a water closet by yourself

    Rick,

    The motar trays are very under-rated. We had them on every truck and used them for everything from pulling a water closet to hauling dirt and broken concrete from a slab leak.

        also the bus boy trays are great too. i buy them at smart and final for $3.00. a little small for a toilet, but great as a sled under a house or for catching waste under a trap.

              good research mark but mine pre dates this.

              also mine is hydraulic based and not screw based.

              i will post a photo in a few days.

                  Cool I don't remember an hydraulic one. The idea was not bad but they just seemed too bulky to keep on the trucks.

                    If the toilet is going to be trashed i keep a roll of heavy plastic sheeting on my truck, lay a piece out,, set toilet on it, fold it up and duct tape it closed. No water drips or wax on the WHITE carpet and no nasties on me I do have a toilet caddy that i use for placement occasionally, don't know the name but it does fold up. Good tip on the busboy trays I'll check it out, my wife is tired of me stealing the shallow pans from the kitchen to catch p-trap water!!

                    Plastic sheeting is good for those sprinkler soaked crawl space access holes!

                      Thats how I do it I would think 2 people would be 1 to many in most restrooms

                        I have a wet vac and suck all the water out of the tank and bowl. I'm a pretty big and tall guy so..I carry the toilet in a special way in where it doesn't put strain on my back.

                        I carry everything out in 1 piece.

                        I agree with West Coast..1 piece toilets are a bugger!

                          As title of the thread reads, "Removing a water closet by YOURSELF". I just wondering if there were any tips on doing it by yourself. These forums are meant to learn from one another, right?
                          If you've changed toilets "hundreds of times" you really need to get a clue on how to do this stuff. If you're calling yourself a plumber, which you do on your profile, pay more attention on the job. It may seem harsh, but you're going nowhere if you have to ask the questions you are asking.

                          Pay more attention on the job, you'll get ahead faster.

                            You're 44 and still don't know how to read. That's sad

                            There is a big difference on doing jobs when you have two people compared to one person (some jobs, not all).

                                He's probably drooling in anticipation of his next victim, maybe some of this stuff will help;

                                "When we build let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."
