How Much Does Toilet Installation Cost in Sarasota?

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 Sarasota 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.

  1. The first step is to switch off the water valve and remove the old toilet.
  2. We will then prep the floor and drain pipe and measure everything to ensure your existing hardware matches the new toilet.
  3. 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.
  4. Then we place the bowl over the wax seal and ensure it sits flush with the floor (no wobbling) before bolting it down.
  5. Fifth, we attach the tank to the bowl, checking that all the rubber seals fit firmly before bolting the pieces together.
  6. Next, we connect the tank to the water supply line.
  7. 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.

Replaced valves and a drain pipe for an insurance demand. JJ was professional, cleaned up after repair, and sensitive to covering his shoes while in our home. It's not always easy to please the man of our house and he was very happy too! Highly recommend!

I contacted JJ Donaldson on Sunday and by end of Monday, he had gone in and jackhammered my flooring, found and replaced the leak and poured cement back in and evened out the flooring. I’m handling all of these issues from across the country, and JJ was immediacy responsive, reassuring and extremely knowledgeable. I would recommend Merit Plumbing to everyone I know!

Had to replace an old hot water heater. Cost was reasonable and JJ came and replaced it on the holiday. Then the pipes in the wall were old and soft, so it had to be cut back to where there was good pipe. JJ Stayed, and cheerfully completed everything that need to be done to make it safe and secure. I can't tell you how much I appreciated the work being completed, and that he stayed until it was done right.
