Prices as quoted ($500-781) OBVIOUSLY included the cost of the toilet. In my quote request I stated project was a totally unremarkable - removal of old toilet and install of the new toilet, which I will have purchased myself. There are no problems and this is not an old house. Simply want t upgrade from contractor grade toilet. I am a retired contractor with a bad back and I know what the project entails.
The next day, I had an unrelated incident with a sprinkler valve inlet pipe rupturing, due to corrosion (galvanized pipe. Since this situation caused me to lose water service to the house, Charlie sent someone over that day to do an emergency cap off. It was then explained what could be done to provide a permanent fix (basically replacing the old galvanized pipe and creating a new sprinkler valve manifold). A quote was given and the full repair was scheduled for the following day. All is good now, and the job came out $120 below the estimate.

For instance, your handle might just be sticking, which can be solved by spraying some lubricant where the handle meets the porcelain. Ready to DIY? Here’s how to fix a running toilet.
