Toilets may not always be mentioned in regular conversations, despite their importance. This makes any toilet problem you might experience in your home a frustrating affair. However, it is still worth knowing how to address them when they arise. In this article, we’ll look at four common signs that will inform you your home needs a toilet replacement.
- Constant toilet repairs. The occasional toilet repair is fine, unless you are constantly seeking professional help to get it in working order. Multiple repairs are costlier and may result in further issues, such as a broken toilet. In such instances, a toilet replacement is usually the best alternative.
- Cracks in the toilet bowl or tank. Cracks can really create a mess. They are unsightly and, in many cases, become active sources of leaks. Besides flooding your bathroom floor and causing structural damage, these leaks can make your bathroom an uninviting space to visit.
- Frequent clogs. Toilets become clogged due to outdated hardware or flushing non-flushable objects. Clogged toilet pipes usually have low water levels, which creates serious problems like backing up or having to flush more than once. When this happens, the best thing to do is replace your toilet.
- Increased water bills. Older toilets use 3-5 gallons of water per flush, compared to modern low-flush toilets that use less than 2 gallons per flush. Toilet replacement can save you from excessively high-water bills.
