Wanted to know how much it would cost to change a toilet that is leaking.

Hi Karen

You may also want to ensure that it is the seal that has not failed vs installing a new toilet. If your existing toilet is satisfactory, you may only have to upgrade/change the seal.

Hi Karen,

Glenn is right. The seal is considerably cheaper to replace if you are happy with the toilet. You should be able to get a decent toilet for $150 and have it installed for another $100 or less.

Good luck,

And, unless you have had a fair bit of experience doing this yourself--hire a plumber! I had the help of two experienced friends and was very thankful for this, as once we removed the old toilet, we also discovered that the mounting flange had to be replaced--they had done it before--luckily for me! This is tricky as there is a lead foil seal around this flange into the drainage pipe, and in my case we had to grout it on a concrete floor. It's a bit easier if you have wood framing to attach to, but the joint to the pipe is much the same.
