How Much Does It Cost To Replace a Toilet?

Replacing a toilet can cost anywhere between $150 to $400 just for installation, depending on the complexity of the job and the toilet you want to install. First and foremost, you WILL need to hire a plumber. As your toilet is part of your plumbing system, and can cause major damage if installed incorrectly, you will need a licensed and qualified plumber to do the installation.
Second, you’ll need a new toilet, which can set you back anywhere between $150 – $2000. Different kinds of toilets will add to the installation costs, especially if the plumber has to modify the piping to properly connect the toilet. Toilets with hidden cisterns or additional features, such as a sink in the cistern, will cost more to install. If you want to avoid additional installation costs, make sure you buy a toilet type that matches your existing piping. There are S trap toilets, which empty through a pipe in the floor, and p trap toilets, which empty through the wall. You can usually which one you have simply by looking at the piping. With all these things in mind you should be able to come up with a reasonable toilet replacement cost and compare it with the quote you get from your plumber.

What’s Wrong With My Toilet?

As toilets age parts will degrade and wear down. Your toilet is almost guaranteed to break at some point, but there are a number of things that could have caused the problem. Some can be fixed, some cannot, but it’s important you know what’s going on before any repairs are attempted.
  • Leaking toilet
    • This issue could be caused by a number of things. If there is water leaking from the cistern into the bowl, there’s a good chance there are broken parts inside, such as the flapper valve, ball valve, inlet pipes or the flushing mechanism’s rubber base. A leaking toilet can cost you hundreds on your water bill, so we recommend turning the water off at the tap until you can work out what the problem is.
  • Toilet not flushing
    • If your toilet isn’t flushing, it’s usually caused by damage to the parts inside, parts such as valves, moving parts that trigger the flush or the flushing system itself. You will need replacement parts for this to be fixed, and one of our plumbers is guaranteed to have them on hand.
