Considerations

While toilets are durable, the time will eventually come for a replacement. If you need a new one, make sure you plan out your project before hiring a toilet installer.

Number of Toilets to Install

When you first contact your pro, give them an idea of the project size.

If you're replacing a broken toilet, the answer is usually one. The same applies when you're renovating your bathroom. At the same time, keep an eye out for a model that conserves water so you can make your home more efficient.

If you are building a new home you will also be planning out brand new bathrooms. This means that each of these rooms will need to be fitted with new toilets.

Current Plumbing

Thankfully, when you replace a toilet, the necessary plumbing already exists. You shouldn't have to adjust it, but you may want to have your pro check it out. They can confirm it's up to code.

Upgrading or adjusting your plumbing can add to the cost. Ask a plumbing expert to give you a quote if you need to change your current setup.

Fitting a toilet in a new build? The proper plumbing is essential and something that your plumbing professional should be able to efficiently take care of.

Project Materials

Depending on where you are in your preparations, you may already have a new toilet in order. It could even be waiting in your garage to find its new home!

However, if you don't have a new toilet picked out you can ask your pro for advice. A pro can tell you what the most popular brands are or recommend a certain model for your needs.

They can even help you put one on order with their trusted supplier. Most pros are happy to share their expertise, so make sure to ask!

Removal of The Old Toilet

Will your toilet installer need to remove the old toilet before they fit the new fixture? If so, your toilet replacement or repair requires a bit more work. The old or damaged toilet will need to be removed before it is replaced.

If you have additional items of old furniture or appliances you are also replacing, you may want to consider having them removed altogether by a rubbish removal expert.

Time

Planning on being home while the work is being done? You'll want to know how long the installation should take. Your project's timeline will depend on a few factors. You’ll need to make sure to allow time to prepare the area and fix up any plumbing.

Then you should also allow time for the removal the old toilet. A damaged toilet can take longer to remove, especially if it's in pieces!

Once the preparation work is in place, the installation shouldn't take long at all. Keep in mind that additional toilets will take extra time to install.

For a precise estimate of how long your professional will take to complete the toilet installation project, it is best to ask them directly.

Experience

Whenever you're dealing with plumbing, it's important to find a seasoned pro. Anyone who deals with plumbing should have a certification that proves their experience.

Check their Bidvine profile for a mention of their experience and certification. If they don’t list it, ask them directly. That way you know you're bringing in a pro you can trust.

While you're looking through their Bidvine profile, check for reviews as well. Previous customers will assess the professional's work and rate their satisfaction. Reviews can assure you that your new toilet installation project is in good hands.

Location

You could find a lot of pros capable of installing your new toilet, but how do you decide who's the right fit? Even after looking at their experience, you might not be sure.

The next step to choosing the right pro is finding on in your area. When you submit a request through Bidvine you’ll receive bids from local pros.
