Have you ever woken up one morning and had an epiphany thinking “Hmmm…I really should replace or update my toilet.”  No?  Me either. 

But I have been nagging sweetly suggesting to the hubby that while we’re madly doing some updates and upgrades around our house to get it ready for the next lucky owners of our house after we move out in August that maybe, just maybe we should think about replacing the toilet in the powder room on the first floor.

You see, we love DIY projects and have done many to our house since we bought it 10 years ago.  Those 10 years sure have flown by fast!  We got lucky, as a friend of us was working in construction at the time we decided to add a powder room to the first floor, so he was able to pick up a toilet and pedestal sink for free for us to utilize. 

Apparently when they’re building new homes, the basic sink and toilet are only installed until the house is finished, at which time they’re removed and replaced with brand spankin’ new ones, and the original ones are simply discarded.

No worries, we did thoroughly clean and sanitize them before we installed them, but considering at the time they were only a few months old, we couldn’t pass up that kind of deal, right?  But now, almost 7 years after we did that particular remodel project, I think it would be nice to replace that toilet with a new one, so the next owners will have an awesome throne to enjoy in the powder room.

It’s funny when you decide it’s time to sell your house, you suddenly do all the things to it you wanted to do to make it ‘just right’ for you.  I totally would have loved to have had one of these to park my tush on:


I know, I know it’s just a toilet – but it’s one of the Delta Corrente Toilets that are sleek, virtually clog free (which is necessary with kids and a hubby who seem to always manage to clog up our toilets), and feature a SmartFit connector to secure mounting components and help eliminate leak points.

And for those that are like us that are DIY-ers, the new Delta Corrente Toilet comes with an EZ Out removal kit, which simplifies uninstalling your old toilet, and reduces the risk of damage to your bathroom in the process.  If we’re going to replace the old toilet with a new one, the last thing we want to do is do any damage and have even more work to get the house ready to sell!

And bonus – these toilets also are WaterSense labeled as they use less water per flush – which can save you up to $90 a year on your water bill!  Sweet!  If you’re in the market and willing and able to do a DIY project over a weekend, you can purchase from this cool toilet line from and

  1. I never replaced it personally, but I had to have one replaced because my son use to like to hide his toys in the toilet. grrrrrrrrrrr I do remember you had to get that waxed ring down first or it will leak all over the place & that’s all I know. I hear it’s a pain especially if you don’t know what you’re doing. We replaced ours when we remodeled our bathroom when I was diagnosed with Spinal Stenosis & hubby got me a taller toilet so it would be easier for me. Bless his heart! I love the taller toilets. When I was looking for a house that was the first thing I did was flush toilets and run the sink. I also looked inside cabinets. I want to see behind closed doors so to speak. hehehehe
