Think maybe you shoulod have gotten a couple of quotes BEFORE the job was done ? After the fact is a bit late except to be able to bitch about it in a review if you find out you paid too much.


Assuming you mean a normal two-part tank toilet, not a fancy or electric model - parts (assuming you mean the normal failure moving parts - fill valve assembly and flapper valve and should do the tank mounting gasket and bolts while it is drained - not everything inside the toilet) about $35-50 per toilet for parts. If you mean the riser tube, tank to bowl gasket, handle, float (if not part of fill assembly), flush arm, etc too - everything but the tank itself - add another $25-50 each toilet for parts, but those are usually only replaced if leaking or broken.


Labor about 1 hour or less per toilet if doing two - a strong hour to hour and a half if replacing mounting bolts and tank seal and other not normally replaced parts also. If wall shutoff valve leaks after use (commonly does if not used in a long time) might run another $10-20 in parts and quarter to half hour in labor to fix one. Labor rate typically from $75-150/hour except in a few very high cost urban areas where it can reach up to $350/hour.
