Remove (and replace) carpet from behind the toilet

Has anyone removed the carpet from behind the toilet of a 1995 Sovereign? How can we re-cover the area behind the toilet (on the wall of sorts)? We'd like to replace with a non-carpet material. (We'd like to replace all carpet as well). Thanks in advance for your ideas and advice.

Removing the head will give you the most access to do a neat job of recovering with whatever product you choose.

On my Sov that's an easy job (two nuts) since the cold water supply is a flexible hose, but I've no idea if your '95 is similar.

Secure the nuts AWAY from the opening if you do that. You don't want to have to chase one or both down the hole...

If it's to be, it's up to me.

I just removed my Aquamagic GL this weekend. It was very simple. One 1/2" nut behind the flush pedal and another on the back side opposite of it. Any time you remove the toilet it is good practice to replace the rubber seal around the base.

Once the toilet is out, you will want to seal the opening, losing parts and also odor. I used an empty plastic tub from food product. Enough room to put a shelf as long as it is easy to remove.
