Is It Time to Replace Your Toilet?

 

You rely on your toilet daily, but you probably don’t think much of it until something goes wrong. Replacing your toilet can improve your bathroom’s aesthetic appeal while conserving water. Whether you’ve discovered water damage on the bathroom floor or the toilet itself is damaged, there are many reasons to take on the task of replacing your home’s toilet:

 

Recurring Clogs:
A toilet that constantly clogs often indicates that it’s time for a new toilet. This problem is extremely common. Clogs from excess or inappropriately flushed items can result in overflows and disgusting plunging and mopping experiences. Most of the time, many of the older low flush toilets require more than one. Though older low flush toilet technology can contribute to this experience and make you wary, rest assured that toilet technology and water savings have improved tremendously in recent years. It’s not a pleasant experience to have to plunge the toilet on a regular basis. Make the wise decision to upgrade your toilet so you don’t waste your time plunging after every use.

 

Poor Water-Use Efficiency:
If you have an older toilet, just flushing it on regular basis may have a negative impact on your utility bill. If you don’t already have a low flush toilet, saving water may be reason enough to replace your toilet. You can actually save quite a bit on your water bill every year with a low flush toilet. A water saving toilet uses less than 2 gallons of water per flush which is considerably less than the old 3-gallon or even a 5-gallon flush toilets. Not only are you helping the environment by saving water, you are helping yourself save money.

 

A Porcelain Crack:
Cracks can occur either in the tank or the bowl, and often they’re hard to spot. Porcelain cracks can also be the source of an active leak. If the toilet appears to be working properly but there is water around the bottom of it, that could mean there are cracks in the bowl. These small cracks can turn into a flood of water at the worst possible time. Inspect your tank and bowl for any cracks occasionally when you clean the toilet. If you spot a crack, it’s always a good idea to replace the toilet before it breaks completely.
