The toilet is a simple yet ingenious contraption. Today, there are many different types of toilets, including gravity fed flush, pressure tank, flushometer, and dual flush toilets. The most common type of toilet is the gravity fed flush toilet, which consists of two main parts; the bowl and the tank. Yet, as common and widespread as the modern toilet is, only a shockingly small amount of people actually understand their inner-workings, which is essential for toilet installation.

Understanding Your Toilet Assembly is Necessary for Toilet Installation
The flange on the floor connects the main drain to the bottom of the bowl assembly with a wax rim serving as a seal between them. A spud gasket acts between a connector and a seal in-between the bowl and the tank. The heart of the toilet is contained in the tank and is protected by the tank lid.
The inner parts of your toilet are fairly simply. Whenever someone flips the flush handle, a chain reaction of events begins. First, the toilet hadle raises the trip lever that pulls a chain, lifting the tank flapper off of the flush valve. As water rushes down through the opening and into the bowl, the reservoir of water and the waste inside of the toilet bowl comply with gravity, passing down through the toilet's trap and outside into your septic system.
Inside the tank, the float descends with the outrushing water until, at a predetermined level, the attached shut-off rod trips the water supply valve, called the ballcock. All the while, the tank flapper will resettle into position inside the flush valve. This will prevent any further water from leaving the tank. Next, the ballcock opens to supply fresh water into the tank through a refill tube and then inside the bowl via an overflow tube. Once the float has risen to its fill position, the ballcock will stop the water and the flush cycle is complete and ready to work again.
