Installing a replacement toilet should be a simple job for your plumber, as most of the fittings are standard and there are not a huge number of variables as far as the installation goes. If, however, you are having a toilet installed in a new or different location then your costs will rise, as you will need to have new plumbing installed and (naturally) the toilet hooked up to your waste system. Most toilets come with a water-saving dual flush nowadays, but your plumber should be able to advise you on any other eco-friendly or water-saving innovations.
Part of the labour of fitting a new toilet is in taking the old one out (if there is one). This can be time-consuming in labour terms, as can removing it and disposing of it. Similarly, some toilets can be cumbersome items to bring up the stairs and install.
It won’t be a five minute job, but it should not take too long for a simple installation. The pan itself should be quick to install once the old unit is removed, but setting up a cistern can take a while to get right, as it may need some fine tuning.
