Toilet Installation

Different Types of New Toilets

There are several varieties of toilets available in Calgary. We are prepared to assist you in locating a toilet fixture that best meets your requirements.

Two-piece Toilet Installation

There are the most common types of toilets available and installed in homes in Calgary. They are the most affordable, and the simplest to install.

Water-concerving Toilet Installation

These toilets are designed to flush using less water per flush so you’ll save a substantial amount on your water bills over time, depending on how much you use your toilet. It’s also more environmentally friendly. You can also look at tank options that have dual flush available. This feature allows you to select an option for a liquid waste flush, which uses less water, or a solid waste flush. This option will significantly reduce the water usage of your toilet.

One-piece Toilet Installation

The tank and the bowl are joined together with the porcelain assembled in one piece with all the parts included. These toilets are easier to clean, and are preferred for aesthetic reasons, but can be more expensive. They are also more difficult to install and it’s best to hire an expert who knows what they are doing.

Comfort Toilet Installations

These are typically 17 inches high, about 3 to 3.5 inches higher than a traditional toilet height. This makes it easier to get on and off the toilet, for anyone who has mobility issues.

Precautions when removing an old toilet and installing a new toilet

The first thing you need to do is disconnect the water connection from your old toilet. Some old homes won’t have a dedicated shut-off valve for the toilet, which is no longer to code, but this will require shutting off water to the whole house and is best done by hiring a professional plumber. Once water is turned off from the toilet, you need to disconnect the water supply attached to the toilet. When it is disconnected, it’s important to catch any water that is draining out of the tank to prevent water damage to your floors. Then the toilet tank needs to be unbolted from the bowl and removed. Then the toilet bowl needs to be unbolted from the floor and removed, but the bowl will also have water in it, so it must be removed carefully to again prevent water damage. Once the toilet has been removed, the toilet bolts and the wax seal must be replaced to install the new toilet. The new toilet is then bolted to the floor and if it is unlevel, some shims should be used to level the toilet. The tank is then placed onto the bowl and bolted together. Then new water supply from the valve to the bottom of the tank is installed and the toilet can be tested.

Alternatives to New Toilet Installations: Toilet Repairs

If your toilet is continually running, there might just be an issue with the seal on the flapper in your tank. Replacing this flapper could be all that’s needed to fix this issue. There is also an overflow tube in the tank that might be causing the water to continually run and fixing the tank float to correct the water level in the tank could help correct this problem. If you have these issues, don’t hesitate to contact our team for an assessment. If we can help you avoid the hassle and expense of a new toilet installation when you are not ready to undertake this kind of upgrade, we will help troubleshoot and solve your toilet issues with toilet repairs. If the problem with your toilet cannot be fixed, we will also help with a new toilet installation.

Frequently Asked Questions

When should you consider installing a new toilet?2022-10-20T09:06:33-06:00

If you notice water leaking onto the floor around the toilet, there are multiple places where this leak could be coming from. It could be the wax seal on the floor, the water supply tube feeding the tank, the connection between the bowl and the tank, or a small crack in the porcelain. All of these leak issues can be resolved without installing a new toilet, except for the crack in the porcelain. If you are unsure where your leak is coming from, our team is happy to help diagnose the problem and determine your best course of action.

How long does it take to install a new toilet?2022-10-20T09:07:12-06:00

There are numerous factors that will impact how long it takes to install a new toilet. Particularly, the time required will depend on whether an existing toilet needs to be removed, how accessible the toilet is (how much space there is surrounding the toilet for a plumber to work on it) and whether the old floor flange is damaged. The footprint of an old toilet bowl vs the footprint of the new bowl can also create installation issues. Once our team is able to inspect your home and begin uninstalling an old toilet, we’ll have a better idea of any issues that will affect your installation time. It could be as quick as a one-hour job, to as long as a four-hour job.

How much does a new toilet cost?2022-10-20T09:08:03-06:00

You can buy a simple two-piece toilet that comes with a wax seal and toilet bolts for as little as $150 to $200. Or you can purchase a higher comfort toilet that comes with everything from $250 to $400. One-piece toilets start at around $250 and can go up to $1000. Water-saving toilets start at around $250 and could go up to $400. Some toilets will come with wax seals and toilet seats, and some do not come with these parts included, so it’s important to consider these costs if your toilet is not a complete package.

Why should I hire a plumber instead of installing it myself?2022-10-20T09:08:54-06:00

An experienced plumber will troubleshoot any water issues that could be encountered while uninstalling an old toilet and installing a new toilet. With their experience, they can typically prevent large amounts of leaks when uninstalling an old toilet. They can level the new toilet and install it properly so it doesn’t rock, and they can help troubleshoot any flooring problems you may encounter in the process. The plumber will also remove your old toilet and bring in the new toilet saving you the awkward job of moving the fixtures. Overall working with a plumber will save you a lot of time and trouble both during the installation and throughout the use of the toilet for years to come.

I hired Desmond to locate and repair a major water leak at our newly purchased townhouse in Palliser. Desmond was punctual, quickly located the problem and sent me an accurate quote for the repair cost. The repair was done perfectly and for the price quoted. He even found time to properly level the toilet and clean out the shower drain at no extra cost. Oustanding service!
