    • Shut off the stop valve underneath the toilet by turning it clockwise until it becomes hand tight.

    • The appearance of this valve may differ from toilet to toilet, but most operate the same. Some valves require multiple turns to stop the water while others only require a quarter turn.

    • Push down the flush lever.

    • Hold the lever down until water stops draining from the tank.

    • A small amount of water will remain in the bottom of the tank.

    • Use a sponge to soak up and remove any remaining water from the toilet tank.

    • Periodically squeeze the excess water from the sponge.

    This is kind of funny but it worked. I had absolutely no sponges at the house, but had leftover diapers our granddaughter outgrew. I thought outside the box and ended up being impressed with the outcome. I opened up the diapers and placed in the remaining tank water. Viola, it immediately began absorbing the water. I used 4 diapers and it did the trick. Just have a leak proof trash bag on hand. No sponge, no bucket, no mess!

    • Place a bucket under the supply tube to catch any dripping water.

    • Turn the coupling nut on the supply tube clockwise until it releases from the threaded shank on the bottom of the tank.

    • Using a socket wrench to hold the nuts, unscrew the two tank bolts with a screwdriver.

    • When reattaching the tank, tighten the bolts with a screwdriver, rather than tightening the nuts. Alternately tighten each bolt in increments, until the tank fits snugly against the toilet.

    • Avoid over-tightening the tank bolts. Too much force can easily crack the toilet tank or toilet bowl.

    • Lift the tank up from the lower half of the toilet.

    • Set the tank on a thick towel to avoid scraping it against the floor.

    The toilet tank can become cracked if not handled carefully.

Step 5: Clockwise or counter-clockwise depends upon whether you are looking down at the coupling nut from above or up at it from below.

I suspect that, unless it has a left-handed thread, most people would turn it in the direction that works.

Close your eyes. Attaching something, the turning motion is (usually) clockwise: Righty-tighty; lefty-loosey.
