How Much Does Toilet Installation Cost?

Toilet installation usually costs a few hundred dollars, but the exact price will depend on the specific job details. Different types of toilets and bathroom configurations will pose various job complexities. This will influence the total number of hours and expertise necessary for your toilet installation, including removing an old toilet in the case of toilet replacement.
New toilet installations will require more extensive plumbing preparation, likely increasing the hours and the price necessary to do the job right.

The best way to know the toilet installation cost for your project is to request a personalized quote. A Merit Plumbing technician will assess the situation and give you an estimate for the cost of toilet installation regarding your home’s design and the toilet you’d like installed.

Toilet Installation Process

Is it hard to install a toilet? Not if you’re a pro. The plumbing experts at Merit Plumbing know how to install toilets and can walk you through the process if you’re curious to know how it works.

  • The first step is to switch off the water valve and remove the old toilet.
  • We will then prep the floor and drain pipe and measure everything to ensure your existing hardware matches the new toilet.
  • Third, we add the new wax ring. Every toilet installation requires a new wax ring; they can’t be reused between toilets. This is a heavy-duty seal that protects the main drain line.
  • Then we place the bowl over the wax seal and ensure it sits flush with the floor (no wobbling) before bolting it down.
  • Fifth, we attach the tank to the bowl, checking that all the rubber seals fit firmly before bolting the pieces together.
  • Next, we connect the tank to the water supply line.
  • Finally, we check all the seals, turn on the water, and do a few test flushes to confirm that your toilet is installed correctly without any leaks.
