Five Signs That You May Need To Replace Your Toilet

Friday, August 23rd, 2019

A toilet is one of the most important items in your home, and you want to make sure that they are working effectively and efficiently at all times. You want them to be efficient because nothing is more embarrassing than having a guest over and your toilet malfunctioning during use. Also, you want them to be efficient as they can be costing you more money than they need to be as a faulty toilet may end up raising your water bill on a monthly basis. We have a made a list of signs that you may notice about your toilet which is a signal that you may need to replace your toilet.

Constant Running

  • If your toilet does not stop running water after a flush, then something is wrong with the inside mechanics of your toilet. It could be a number of things such as the flusher, the chain, the stopper or another piece of the inside. A running toilet will most definitely cause a spike in your water bill.

Always Clogging

  • A clogged toilet is a part of life and has to be dealt with, however, if your toilet is clogging on a regular basis and with not a lot of waste or paper in the bowl, then this may indicate another issue. You may have a low-flush toilet and need a more high flow toilet. Not to mention, if you have an older toilet, you may want to replace it anyway as technology is a great thing, and the technology has even improved in toilets.

Check For Cracks

  • Checking for cracks is very important as a crack can happen at any time. For example, if you have an overweight guest over, and they sit on the toilet roughly, or just after some normal wear and tear, you may find that your bowl or tank has suffered a crack. If you have a crack in the tank, you may notice if by seeing water on the floor near the tank. A crack in the toilet bowl may be harder to notice, but it is important to check for them. If you have a crack in either the tank or the bowl, you want to replace the toilet immediately to avoid an injury or leak inside your home.
