Toilet Replacements

​​   When the plumber goes out and installs a new toilet this what is included at the flat rate price he gives you unless there is an additional cost because of something mentioned below.

   

  • New toilet, tank seat and lid.
  • Wax ring(s) as needed to seal toilet to flange. 
  • New water line connection.
  • Removal and disposal of old toilet.
  • All hardware to connect toilet to existing flange. New brass bolts if needed.
  • All labor to complete the job.
  • Other Things that May be included


   In addition to the toilet, these items Might also be included at an additional cost to replace a toilet.


  • Drain line cleaning.
  • Minor floor repairs. (under toilet)
  • Specialized Tools, Supplies or Equipment


   It’s not uncommon for a leaking toilet to cause other, hidden damages in the bathroom. These things can increase the toilet replacement cost, and extend the job:


  •   Broken mounting flange. The flange secures the toilet to the waste line, and needs to be intact. These can be repaired by the plumber doing the job if broken.
  •   Wood rot from extended leaking. If the floor has rotted under the toilet, you may need to call in a handyman or carpenter to repair the floor.
  •   Vinyl or Tile flooring. If the finish flooring is damaged, you may want to call in a flooring expert to have it repaired.

  Water Heaters

​​    When a new water heater is installed, it all begins with the Plumber visiting your home and estimating the proper size and needs for you and your family. They will ask you questions about whether the old unit performed as you expected, how often you ran out of hot water, and whether or not you were happy overall with the performance and size of    the old water heater.


    When the plumber prepares a detailed estimate of the water heater installation cost, it will usually include:


  • New Water Heater (This covers tank style water heaters)
  • Drain or Overflow Pan for Under Unit
  • All Connectors to Attach to Flue if Needed
  • All Copper or Pex Piping Used to Plumb the New Unit Into Existing Home Plumbing
  • Electrical Wiring, Breakers, and All Electrical Needs
  • Removal and Disposal of Old Water Heater, Pipes and Venting Equipment
  • Pressure Relief Valve
  • All Required Tools Needed for the Project
  • Labor for 1-2 Workers to Complete Project


  There are several factors that will determine why you PAY more for your water heater installation including:


  • Age of Existing Water Heater – If you have a very old and dirty water heater, it can require extra care during the removal.
  • Size of the Job – If installation will be in a fairly large home or business, you may have added costs.
  • Condition of the Floor – If your old water heater has been in place for many years, there could be corrosion underneath or flooring that needs to be replaced.
  • Type of New Water Heater – Higher quality water heaters can vary greatly based on size and efficiency.
  • Hard to Reach Spaces – Water heater installation in a very small attic or oddly placed storage closet to sometimes add to the labor cost.

  Garbage Disposals

​​   Expect the following items to be included in your garbage disposal installation estimate


  • New Garbage Disposal Unit. (unless you are supplying your own)
  • Removal of Old Unit. (if applicable)
  • Repair, Connect, or Replacement of Drain Lines and Plumbing to Disposal Unit.
  • All Electrical Connections and power Requirements for Garbage Disposal.
  • Hose Connecting Dishwasher to Garbage Disposal.
  • All Labor and Supplies to Complete the Garbage Disposal Installation.

​​  

  There are several things that can affect the installation cost you pay, but they are not really related to the garbage disposal itself:


  • If you Want a Quiet or More Powerful Disposal, Expect to Pay Slightly Higher Cost.
  • Do You Have Power Capable of Handling the Disposal? – If an electrician needs to be called in to run a new electrical outlet or line from the circuit breaker panel, it will cost more.
  • Will Your Sink Accept a Garbage Disposal? – Some old style sinks may not allow the disposal to attach to the bottom of it.

    Faucets

     The cost of installing a faucet will increase or decrease based upon a number of factors. Here are a list of factors that will impact the cost:


  1. Location of faucet. The cost of installation or replacement will vary depending on what type of faucet you are looking to install. Is this a kitchen or bathtub faucet? A shower head? Will the  faucet be indoors or outdoors? Is the plumbing in a hard to reach area?

  2.  Existing plumbing. If existing plumbing is not up to code, it may be necessary to replace rusting pipes before installing a new faucet. These repairs will result in an additional charge. If the  plumber has to temporarily move the garbage disposal to access the faucet, it will likely cost more money. 

  3.  Water Efficiency. If you are looking to conserve water, there are now faucets designed to be more environmentally friendly. These water-efficient faucets have a lower flow rate and can help  save hundreds of gallons of water on an annual basis. The lower flow rate can also reduce energy costs by lessening the demand on the water heater. 

  4.  Connectors and mountings. Connectors and mounting hardware should be included in the cost of installation. However, if the existing mounting hardware has rusted, you can expect an  additional fee to remove the existing faucet.

  5.  Outdoor faucets. If major structural or plumbing modifications need to be made, the cost of installation will increase. Also, you can expect to pay more for frost-proof and anti-siphon hose-  bibbs  that may be necessary for colder climates.
