Q:

What socket wrench size do you need for the base of a toilet?

A:

An individual may need an adjustable wrench, a box end wrench or a deep socket wrench to remove bolts at the base of a toilet. The top of the bolts can typically be removed with the flat blade of a screwdriver.

Toilet bolts and other screws may be covered in rust, making them difficult to remove. Individuals should apply penetrating oil to any rust-covered screws or bolts to make them easier to remove. Once removing the bolt, individuals should be very careful. Applying too much might cause the wrench to slip from the bolt and to strike the toilet instead, causing cracks in its surface.
