Toilet Installation From John Moore Plumbing Professionals

If your toilet has a major leak, is uncomfortable to use, or you’re wanting something new to match your bathroom renovations, contact John Moore’s plumbing professionals to tackle your toilet installation.

John Moore’s toilet installation process is all about putting Houston homeowners at ease. We know it can be disruptive to have workers come into your home, which is why we work hard to make the experience as relaxed, efficient, and hassle-free as possible.

Toilet Installation: John Moore’s Step-by-Step Plan for Smooth Installs

Step 1:

Schedule a consultation

As with all remodels, our process begins with a consultation and an estimate. We will work with you to find the perfect toilet that meets your family’s needs, and then estimate the total cost of replacement with labor included, as well as any drywall repair.

Step 2:

Schedule the work

After we get the go-ahead from you, we will schedule construction based on your availability and figure out a work schedule that is as non-intrusive and comfortable for your family as possible.

Step 3:

Remove old toilet and inspect the toilet flange

Prior to the installation, John Moore will carefully remove all traces of your previous toilet. After that, we will inspect your previous toilet’s flange and bolts to see if they’re in good condition. If they’re still in working order, we will reuse them for the toilet upgrade. If the flange and/or bolts are not in good condition, we will replace them.

Step 4:

Place new toilet onto toilet flange

During this part of the process, our plumbers will install a toilet seal, or wax ring, over your toilet flange. The toilet seal or wax ring prevents leaks at the base. After this step, we place the new toilet over the toilet flange, aligning the bolt holes from the flange and the base.

Step 5:

Bolt toilet to floor and attach the tank (if installing a two-piece toilet)

Once your new toilet is safely placed on the toilet flange, our plumbing professionals will bolt your toilet by tightening the nuts onto the bolts. After the toilet is safely attached to your home’s bathroom floor, we attach the tank to the base.

Note: this step is only applicable if you are installing a two-piece toilet, not a one-piece toilet (where the bowl and tank are permanently attached).

Step 6:

Install the toilet seat, lid, and any add-ons

At this point in the process, we will add on any of your additional toilet parts, including your new toilet seat and lid. If you opt into a specialty toilet item, such as a raised, elongated, or heated toilet seat, then we will include that into this step as well.

Step 7:

Ensure that you’re satisfied

Now that the job is done, our licensed plumbers will clean up their workspace, flush the toilet a couple of times to check for any leaks, and ensure that you and your family are satisfied with the work.

Toilet Repairs with John Moore Plumbing Professionals

John Moore’s licensed plumbers offer a wide range of services for your home’s toilets, including, but not limited to: clogged toilet repairs, running toilet repairs, leaking toilet repairs, and repairing or replacing parts of your toilet that aren’t working properly, such as the flapper, fill valve, or wax seal.

What are some common household toilet problems?

  • The toilet has a weak flush that doesn’t work correctly
  • The toilet’s flush is strong, but isn't complete
  • The toilet tank fills with excessive water after being flushed
  • The water in the toilet bowl drops below the norm
  • The toilet flushes twice in a row, without having to double-flush
  • The toilet is making odd noises, such as whistling, when the tank is filling or draining
  • The toilet takes too long to fill the tank, or takes a long time to flush
  • The toilet sounds like it is leaking, dripping, or constantly “on” when not in use
  • The toilet is flushing on its own when not in use

Each of these common toilet issues could be a result of another issue going on with your toilet or plumbing system. Give yourself peace of mind by calling on a licensed plumber.

Need Help Unclogging a Toilet?

John Moore’s Plumbers Are Here for You!

If your toilet is clogged and your plunger isn’t doing the trick, it may be time to call a licensed plumber. A clogged toilet can easily become a bigger, more significant issue if left unresolved. We offer hassle-free toilet unclogging services, toilet repairs, sewer line cleaning, and a full toilet replacement service.

The Dos & Don'ts of toilet flushing:

  • DO make sure you have a plunger in or near each bathroom of your home in the event of a small clog.
  • DO make sure your drain line is cleanout accessible.
  • DO limit the amount of toilet paper used each time, especially if you have a low-flow toilet.
  • DO look into our limited-time drain hydro-jetting package if all else has failed. Hydro-jetting is a method used by our plumbers to clean clogged or slow-draining sewage lines.
  • DON’T flush baby wipes, paper towels, or feminine hygiene products down the toilet. Curious what else not to flush down the toilet? Here’s a comprehensive list.
  • DON’T waste your time if your plunger isn’t working. It could be a sewer stoppage. Conveniently, John Moore also specializes in sewer repair and sewer line replacement.
Clogged toilets are among the most common household maintenance issues, and they aren’t always easily resolved. Save yourself time and worries by scheduling a licensed plumber who will get to the bottom of your toilet’s (or your sewer’s) clog. Don’t let it ruin your day, our plumbing professionals will meet you there.
