I am having tile installed in the two bathrooms in our house. One scheme
for maintaining habitability in the house would be to remove one toilet, and
let the installer finish that bath while the other bathroom remains in use.
Unfortunately, both toilets appear to be installed on the same waste line,
and I'm uncomfortable with the thought of flushing one toilet while the
other flange is open to the air. Is this really a problem? Is there an
easy solution, or should I just take them both out and make the necessary
arrangements to stay elsewhere for a couple of days?
You can wad up a big ball of newspaper and it will plug up the hole.
You can also buy a special lid but that's excessive, you won't use it
enough to worry about. Plumbers usually carry rags and such around
just for this purpose.
