Should You Replace Your Toilet?

A sudden bathroom fixture emergency is not only frustrating, but also very inconvenient. These situations often happen at the worst time, like the middle of the night, leaving you with not only a mess but also the daunting task of finding a plumber to fix it. How can you tell when it’s time to replace your toilet?

Persistent Clogging

Frequent clogs that require constant attention could indicate a more serious issue with your toilet. Objects or mineral deposits may be obstructing the pipes, making it difficult to clear the blockage. If you find yourself trying to unclog your toilet frequently, it may be a sign that some plumbing components need to be replaced.

Cracks and Leaks

Cracks in the porcelain of the toilet can worsen over time, leading to leaks and potential flooding. Even if the emergency doesn’t happen right away, daily leakage can cause water damage to your floors. As cracks and leaks become more severe, it’s recommended to consider replacing your toilet sooner rather than later.

Frequent Repairs

The costs of minor repairs can accumulate over time. Common issues like the tank stopper or toilet handle are relatively simple to fix. Occasionally, the pipes connected to these components may also require fixing. However, as the toilet ages, these parts and others will need to be replaced more frequently, leading to higher repair costs than the price of a new toilet. If it has been several years since your last toilet replacement, it is worth considering a newer model. They are more efficient and water-saving.
