Should I Fix or Replace My Toilet?Few household items are used more frequently than toilets. The toilet’s components eventually become worn from constant use. The toilet’s functionality might be compromised when wear becomes too great. Toilet issues that are frequently caused by wear include clogged drains, running tanks, sagging or unstable seats, and water leaks.

If you are a new homeowner or an experienced one but no longer have the patience to deal with toilet issues, today, at Top Tier Plumbing and Rooter, we will give you the 6 signs you need to look for when considering if it’s time to replace your toilet.

  1. Always Needing Repair
  2. In the long run, buying a new toilet might be simpler and less expensive if yours always requires repairs.

  3. Common Clogs
  4. Almost all toilets have occasionally developed clogs. The majority of the time, a plunger is all that is needed to unclog the drain. It might be time for a replacement when a toilet starts to clog frequently, say more than once per week.

  5. Cracks in porcelain
  6. Cracks in the porcelain of the bowl and base of your toilet may cause leaks around the base. While these leaks might not affect how well your toilet works, they can damage your flooring and encourage mold growth.

  7. Wobbling
  8. In some cases, tightening the anchoring screws will solve the problem of a swaying toilet. It might also be a sign of something much worse, like rot on the floor the toilet is sitting on, a leaky floor seal, or water damage.

  9. High Water Charges
  10. Replace your outdated, inefficient 3-5 gallon flush toilet with a new, more energy-efficient 1-2 gallon low-flush toilet as a great place to start if you’re looking for a way to reduce your water bills.

  11. An Upgraded Bathroom Can Increase Your Property Value
  12. Planning a bathroom renovation? Replace that old, worn-out toilet with a new one to improve the look of your bathroom and increase the value of your house. Sometimes we think that curb appeal is the most important. However, there are many simple upgrades you can do throughout your home that will increase its property value should you want to sell your home in the future.
