About Our Toilet Installation: Vancouver

Learn About the Process, Types, and More!

Toilet installation considers various aspects, including different toilet models and flushing styles. It's not just about a conventional bidet toilet for personal hygiene. You'll want a bathroom that aligns with your preferences while being energy-efficient to reduce utility costs. After inspecting your existing bathroom and drainage lines, our professional plumbers will recommend the best toilet model for installation.

Here are some common types of toilets installed by Mr. Rooter Plumbing:

  1. One-Piece: This model features a pre-assembled tank and bowl attached as a single unit. It offers a compact design, easy installation, and excellent durability. Additionally, it's easy to clean, reducing the risk of bacterial growth. One-piece toilets provide convenient access for children and individuals with disabilities. However, they tend to be slightly more expensive due to their sturdiness, which minimizes the risk of breaks and leaks.
  2. Two-Piece: The tank and bowl are separate in this option, making it a more budget-friendly choice. The detachable components are easier to repair, as these toilets are prone to fractures and leaks. Two-piece toilets are lightweight and offer greater flexibility for customization in terms of style and height. Both one-piece and two-piece toilets can include additional features such as bidet attachments or low-flow energy efficiency.
  3. Wall-Mounted: This type of toilet is securely fixed onto the wall, with the tank installed directly into the wall structure. Wall-mounted toilets are the most expensive option, as their installation requires more effort and labor. However, they are ideal for saving space in the bathroom, boasting a modern and minimalist design that is easy to clean. Additionally, their height can be adjusted for convenience.

When it comes to toilet installation, Vancouver plumbers will take note of your specific requirements and provide professional guidance to help you choose the most suitable toilet model for your needs.

FAQs About Vancouver Toilet Installation Services

How Do I Know If I Have A Broken Toilet?

There are several signs to watch out for that indicate your toilet may be broken or experiencing issues. Here are some to be aware of:

  • Frequent clogged toilets and clogged drains
  • Constantly running toilet
  • Cracks or fractures on the bowl or tank
  • Puddles of water around the bathroom floor
  • Wobbling unit, worn seal at toilet base
  • Built-up mineral deposits
  • Discoloured rust
  • Strange gurgling noises
  • Bowl almost completely drenches with water upon flush
  • Loose toilet handle
  • Odd odours

If you notice any of these issues, it's time for a new toilet installation.

How Do I Choose My Next Toilet?

When you want to install a toilet, there are various types and options to consider. Here are some popular choices:

  • Dual Flush: This water-saving option allows you to choose between a full flush for solid waste (approximately 1.6 gallons of water per flush) and a half flush for liquid waste (around 0.8 gallons per flush). Opting for a dual flush toilet can save up to 4000 gallons of water annually, making it an environmentally-friendly choice.
  • Pressure-Assisted Flush: These toilets feature an additional pressure vessel that contains compressed air. As water enters the toilet bowl, it pressurizes and creates a strong flush. Pressure-assisted toilets are less prone to breakage and require less maintenance. They are particularly suitable for older homes with weaker drainage pipes or households with high water usage, as the added force helps push waste through older pipes.
  • Double Cyclone Flush: Commonly found in public and commercial washrooms, these toilets use a high-speed stream of water to create a cyclone effect, cleaning the toilet bowl thoroughly before rinsing and flushing away the waste. Although effective, these use slightly more water (around 1.28 gallons) due to the bowl cleansing action.
  • Gravity-Fed Toilets: This traditional flush mechanism has been used for over a century and remains a common household choice. When you push the handle, a valve opens within the tank, allowing water to rush into the bowl through the force of gravity. Gravity flush toilets are reliable, quiet, and less likely to clog.
  • Automated or Touchless: Often seen in public restrooms, these toilets have motion sensors that automatically flush when you finish using them. This touchless operation promotes a more hygienic environment and resembles a smart home toilet experience.

When selecting a new toilet for installation, consider your water-saving goals, specific needs, and preferences to choose the best option for your home.

What Are Some Tips For Toilet Maintenance and Upkeep?

Following some do's and don'ts is important to ensure proper toilet upkeep. Here are some guidelines for homeowners in Vancouver to keep in mind:


  • Avoid flushing down large amounts of toilet paper at once, as it can increase the risk of clogs.
  • Avoid using chemical drain cleaners, which can be harsh and potentially damage your pipes.
  • Never flush feminine hygiene products such as pads or tampons, which can cause blockages.
  • Do not flush cotton swabs, wet wipes, hygiene products, or cosmetics, as these items are not designed to break down in the plumbing system and can cause blockages.
  • Avoid flushing medications, as they can contaminate the water supply and harm the environment.
  • Do not use toilet fresheners that contain blued dyed chemicals, as these chemicals can deteriorate parts of your toilet tank.


  • Regularly check your toilet for leaks by dropping a few drops of food colouring into the tank. If the colour runs into the bowl without flushing, it indicates a leak that should be addressed.
  • Occasionally remove the tank lid and ensure the water levels are at the appropriate threshold. Adjust the float if necessary to maintain proper water levels.
  • Keep a plunger handy for minor clogs that can be easily resolved without professional assistance.

When facing a severe plumbing problem or if you're uncertain about the issue, it's best to call Mr. Rooter Plumbing for professional fixes. By following these do's and don'ts, you can maintain a well-functioning toilet and minimize the risk of plumbing problems in your home.

Toilets typically need to be replaced every ten to fifteen years. However, if the toilet has been highly maintained, it can last up to 50 years! Some signs are obvious to the general homeowner, and some signs are recognized only by experienced plumbers. Some signs that it could be time for replacement or repair are:

  • A change in your water bill: When a toilet is nearing the end of its life, it needs to work harder to do its job, which will show an increase in your water bill. 
  • Regular clogging or overflow: A toilet that runs is damaged. Whether the damage is inside the tank or in another problem area, a running toilet is a sign it's time for a replacement toilet. A clogged toilet is due to clogged pipes — this could be a simple clog or hardware might need to be replaced. 
  • An increase in repairs: A constant need for repairs, such as replacing hardware and filling cracks is a sure sign your toilet is reaching the end of its life.
