Top Toilet Seat Fitting related questions

Toilet seat fitting is something most tradesmen don’t usually do, along with other “unusual” jobs like washing machine repairs & installation. But with Airtasker, you’ll be pleasantly surprised it’s easy to find many skilled specialists that do this. You can hire Taskers to do jobs like these and complement other jobs like plumbing, toilet repair, and bathroom renovation. It’s possible to find a Tasker and get it done within the day.
You have no obligation to supply your handyman with tools or equipment, as they usually bring what’s needed. The tools and equipment they have are also what they’re skilled at and most comfortable using. But should unexpected issues arise, like rusted securing bolts that can’t be unscrewed, feel free to lend cutting tools and safety equipment.
A job like this usually takes less than an hour. But please note that not all handymen do the service at the same speed, and consider that the job may come with unforeseen issues. It may take longer than usual to remove the old seat, or the new seat may not be a perfect fit, and the Tasker may have to make some adjustments.
Yes, a Tasker can help you with this. You can let them do part of the job, such as removing the old seat if its bolts or screws are too rusted, then you fit the new toilet seat afterwards. Taskers can assist you as long as you are clear on what you want them to do.
Choose a seat that gives the most comfort, is of the right size and shape such that its lid covers the toilet pan and provides a perfect seal. The seat should withstand daily use and must not warp when cleaned with bleach or other chemical cleaners. Choose a seat made of non-toxic, sturdy materials like moulded hardwood, durable plastic, ceramics or metal.
MDF or Medium-Density Fibreboard seats are cheap, but also flimsy and may pose serious health hazards. MDF seats usually have a thin outer layer that can weaken and tear off from daily use and harsh cleaning chemicals. This wear and tear can expose the inner MDF layers, which can act like a sponge that harbours germs and bacteria. Avoid using a loo with a broken MDF toilet seat, as this can raise your risk of serious illness.

What do toilet seat fitting services include?

Toilet seat fitting services include doing all that’s necessary to ensure the new toilet seat fits over the toilet pan. Your handyman makes sure that the new position makes a perfect seal and covers the bowl when not in use. The service includes removing the old toilet seat, measuring the toilet pan, ensuring the new seat fits, making adjustments as necessary and disposing of the old toilet seat. 

Removing the old seat

Whether it’s due to age, loosening, damage or for any other reason, your handyman can remove the old toilet seat for you. If the bolts keeping the old seat in place are rusted, the handyman may apply an industrial lubricant to loosen them, then unscrew them with an adjustable wrench.

Should this method prove ineffective, they can use a hacksaw to cut off the stubborn, rusted bolts. The bolts, old toilet seat and lid are then removed and set aside.  


Some handymen may find it necessary to clean the toilet pan before doing the installation - they'll usually prepare by wearing house cleaning gloves and a face mask to avoid germs, but some may take more precautions. Your handyman may use bleach or detergent to clean the toilet pan, then rinse and wipe it dry. Your Tasker may even apply a disinfectant spray on the toilet before proceeding with this service.   

Installing the new seat

The Tasker first measures the toilet pan with a tape measure - this is important when doing a large or small toilet seat replacement, as this ensures a perfect fit. Next, your handyman determines the width of the toilet pan by placing the tape measure across the fullest part of the pan. If these measurements match your new toilet seat, installation can proceed.

You handyman follows the installation instructions of your new toilet seat by fastening the seat onto the toilet pan with the included bolts, bolt nuts and washers. 

Disposing of the old seat

After your new toilet seat is installed, your handyman can dispose of the old toilet seat as part of the service. You can use this option if you don’t know how or where to have an old seat recycled. Taskers can place the old toilet seat in an airtight bag or similar container, then take it to the appropriate recycling facility.
