Temporary toilet removal

Is the risk of a leak upon reassembly generally the same whether I remove and reinstall the whole toilet or take the tank off and put it back on? I am repainting the bathroom and would like to cover the wall behind the toilet which at a minimum needs the tank out of the way. My father is recommending it’d be easier to just take the whole toilet out, but a new wax seal just seems like unnecessary work compared to putting on a new tank gasket... submitted by /u/zwiemer17 [link] [comments]
