C&C Plumbing offers toilet installation and repair services
The process of replacing a toilet typically includes:
• Turning off and disconnecting the water supply that runs from the wall to the toilet.
• During the process of shutting off the water valve, plumbers commonly find that the angle valve is not working correctly. This is because hard water over time will damage the shut-off valve.
• Draining the old toilet, removing it, wrapping it in plastic, and finally inspecting the condition of the flange — the flange is what secures the toilet to the drainpipe on the floor.
• Setting the new toilet with a new wax ring and bolts, connecting the water and testing to make sure the toilet works properly.
The wax ring is included in the cost of resetting a toilet. However, the supply line and angle valve may not be included as well as any repairs needed for the flange.
A lot of times, plumbers will find that the flange is not set level with the floor due to some remodeling where tiles added. In most cases, a double wax ring will solve this issue. However, it is always recommended to raise the flange height at the same height as the tile floor.
