Our Reliable Services for Edmonton Toilet Replacement

Mr. Rooter Plumbing plumber performing toilet replacement in Edmonton.

Most people don't spend much time thinking about their toilet, but when they have a broken, outdated, or malfunctioning unit that needs toilet replacement, Edmonton homeowners suddenly can't stop thinking about it. Don't worry, our experienced plumbers are here to help! Count on us to arrive promptly for your scheduled appointment, in uniform and with all the tools and supplies we need to get the job done right.

The first thing we'll do is, of course, turn off your water supply main and drain your tank and bowl of any remaining water. Then we'll detach your water supply lines, loosen up floor bolts, and break the caulk seal around the bottom of your old fixture to remove it. Once your old unit is removed from your bathroom and out of our way, we'll carefully inspect your drain opening and surrounding floor for any signs of trouble such as water leak damage, and remove the remnants of your old wax seal.

Inserting the new wax seal is the next step for toilet replacement. Edmonton plumbers at Mr. Rooter will carefully place the wax seal and lower the new porcelain base onto it. Then, we'll secure your replacement toilet by tightening up the bathroom floor flange bolts. Finally, we'll attach the water supply lines, turn the water main back on, and give it a few test flushes to make sure everything is working properly.

Frequently Asked Questions About Toilet Replacement

What are the Signs that Toilet Replacement Services are Necessary?

Toilets are pretty sturdy, but they don't last forever. While several issues can be solved with simple repairs and don't require toilet replacement, Edmonton residents will eventually encounter problems that can't be fixed, or that would be more costly to fix than having a replacement installed. Here are some of the warning signs that indicate it's time for toilet replacement services:

  • The fixture is more than about 25 years old, which means it uses water inefficiently
  • Cracked, scratched, or chipped porcelain on the tank or bowl
  • Visible or hidden water leaks
  • The unit requires frequent repairs for various concerns
  • Frequent clogs are happening in the fixture rather than drain lines
  • The bowl is too small or has an uncomfortable shape

These fixtures will normally suffer from simple problems that can be fixed pretty easily, but if you notice the types of issues listed above, it's time for toilet replacement. Edmonton property owners will save money in the long run and save themselves plenty of hassle by getting a new fixture put in.

How Long Will My Fixture Last Before I Need Toilet Replacement?

The length of time you can expect your toilet to last is going to differ based on whether it gets routine maintenance and cleaning through the years, along with the occasional simple repair. Toilets get used a lot, sometimes dozens of times per day, so it's impressive that they usually manage to hang in there for about 15 years on average before they need toilet replacement.

Can I Do the Edmonton Toilet Replacement By Myself?

If we were talking about a brand-new toilet installation for a roughed-in fixture in a bathroom that had never been used, then yes, it's likely an amateur could handle the job by themselves as long as they had a little patience and some basic plumbing knowledge. But when it comes to a toilet replacement, Edmonton homeowners are better off leaving it to the pros. Dealing with an old, used toilet flange can be more difficult, time-consuming, and unsanitary than many people suspect. Our experienced plumbers have the training and skill to handle that task safely and ensure that everything is correct so you don't end up with a toilet that is leaking wastewater under your bathroom floor.

The other advantage of calling in the professionals is that we have seen a lot of issues caused by leaking wastewater and other problems, which means we are better at identifying those problems and we know what needs to be done to correct them. We may be able to spot problems others would miss and recommend steps to resolve them so you don't end up with more severe damage to your property.
