Your Toilet Installation or Replacement questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on HomeGuide.

How much does it cost to install a toilet?

Toilet installation costs $350 to $800 on average for the toilet and professional installation. Toilet prices alone start as low as $100 for a basic two-piece unit to as high as $20,000+ for the most high-end smart model with all the bells and whistles.

If you’re DIY-savvy, replacing a toilet yourself can save $150 to $900+ on labor. However, hiring a professional ensures the job is done correctly, safely, and up to code.

How long does it take to install a toilet?

Toilet installation takes 2 to 3 hours on average when hiring a professional. If you’re installing a wall-hung toilet or a toilet in a completely new location, installation can take 4 to 6+ hours due to the extra plumbing and drywall work needed.

How long do toilets last?

While some toilets last 50+ years, the average lifespan of most toilets is 10 to 20 years. Some parts, such as the chain, flapper, and wax seal may need replacing before that 10-year mark. Consider replacing an older toilet even if it’s still functioning, as today’s models are much more efficient and cost less to run.

How long after installation can a toilet be used?

You can technically use a toilet right after installation. However, most professionals recommend waiting 48 to 72 hours for the sealants to dry completely. Some caulking dries in just a few hours, while other types take 24+ hours to cure and dry, so it’s best to confirm the correct wait time with your installer.

How do I choose a toilet installation company near me?

With the many plumbers and plumbing service companies available, follow these guidelines to help you find the best toilet installation service near you:

  • Compare 3 to 5 toilet installation estimates with similar details.
  • Choose a licensed, insured, and bonded plumbing service with high ratings on HomeGuide and Google.
  • Avoid going with the cheapest installation estimate as this may signal low-quality work.
  • Ask for a detailed contract and warranty in writing before the installation begins.
  • Don't pay in full until the job is complete.

What questions should I ask when getting estimates for toilet installation?

Asking the right questions will help you choose the best plumber for your new toilet installation:

  • How long have you been in business?
  • Is your company licensed, insured, and bonded?
  • What experience do you have installing this type of toilet?
  • How quickly can you install the toilet?
  • Can you provide references with contact information?
  • Does the estimate include removing the old toilet and disposing of it?
  • Is your quote based on an hourly rate or is it a flat fee for this service?
  • What other costs might come up during the installation?
  • How long should we wait to use the toilet after installation?
  • Do you offer a warranty, and what does it cover?
  • Do you submit the manufacturer’s warranty registration?

What I liked about working with Chris, We fix Plumbing. Chris was professional, knowledgeable, prompt, friendly, respectful, and reasonably price. He replaced a shower diverter valve for $328.00 less than the estimate I received from Premier Rooter. I will definitely use him in the future as well as refer him to family and friends
