How to Remove a Commercial Toilet

"How do you remove a commercial toilet? It does not have a water tank but instead a water pipe coming out of the wall going to the bowl." was the commercial plumbing question I received today.

To remove the toilet, first shut off the water to the toilet. If you are removing the toilet permanently, shut the water off to the building. If you are only removing the toilet temporarily, shut the water off to the stop. It's the turn that comes out of the wall. This pipe has a small screwdriver shutoff under the chrome cap.

Once the water is shut off, you can simply unthread the pipes from the top of the toilet, disconnect the floor bolts on each side and lift it off the floor.
