Today, I was so proud I'd fixed the toilet with a hardware store part without even having to call a plumber. As I happily put the lid back on the tank, I dropped the lid, which broke the tank, spilling water everywhere. Now I need a new toilet, a new floor, and I have to call the plumber. FML

It's not that hard to install a new toilet, honestly, it's like one of the easiest things I do as a plumber.

OP could -maybe- do it....umm, if she can figure out that whole "Putting the lid on the tank" thing.

It's unfortunate that the efforts of your hard work tanked so quickly. Hopefully, you can put a lid on the situation before it all goes down on the toilet again.

Hover and bombs away down the sewer line of course (assuming the entire toilet is removed.

Or if the bowl is still there, do your business and then get a bucket of water and pour it in. It'll create the needed water pressure to cause it to flush.

I was wondering that too. Unless OP panicked and couldn't figure out how to turn off the water flow, most tanks do not hold enough water to do much damage to a floor. Bathroom floors are (usually) designed with the occasional water seepage in mind.
