Question DetailsAsked on 9/2/2013

I purchased an AquaSource toilet from Lowes and will pick it up tomorrow. Was wondering how much to install?

How much to install toilet in a condominium bathroom. There is lots of room beside the shower.

Do you have the same question? Follow this Question

Don't know what an AquaSource toilet base looks like in detail but it look normal from the top, so assuming it has standard drain connection and will fit in standard offset from the wall, should be only about $100-150 in existing toilet spot. It says on Lowe's website it has a 12 inch rough-in (distance from drain pipe to wall) which is pretty standard, though some older homes do have 10", which would be a real problem.

If you have a 10" rough-in then the drain pipe will have to be moved a few inches forward - rough ballpark around $250-350 if you have access from underneath the floor (plus probably $150-250 drywall and painting to repair the work hole), otherwise possibly as much as $400-600 if has to do it from above, and may have some floor redo necessary also in that case.

If you have no toilet there at this time, then very roughly (depends greatly on your current piping configuration) could run from about $500 if can pull from only a couple of feet away (say to the sewer pipe the shower connects into), to thousands if a main drain pipe has to be brought in from another room or floor.

I also purchased 2 aqua source toilets at Lowes and had them installed 2 days ago. The prices to install them can range anywhere from $100 per toilet to $150. from a licensed plumber.I think that is who you have to hire if you live in a condo.

I own my own house in Tamarac. First I had to get a permit from the city of Tamarac but when you have your own home you can have a handyman do it, so that saves money. It cost me $ 75 for each one and they did a great job. I purchased the toilets and the handy man picked them up for me and delivered them to my home.

Will also be getting a rebate from the city as they have a rebate program for anyone who installs the new efficent toilets. It has to have a 1.2 gallonof wpl (water per flush)

I have my house for 23 years so it was a perfect time to replace my toilets.

Good luck with your purchase and I hope my answer helps you.

About $100 for basic install. If you have a 10" rough, which a lot of older homes do, save money on moving the drain and spend about another $100 on a 10" rough toilet. Aquasource does not have the 10" rough. American Standard has a decent one for about $190 at Lowe's.
