Indoor plumbing has been a staple of modern life for centuries now. And many people would argue that the most important aspect of indoor plumbing is the bathroom, and more specifically, the toilet.
Keeping your toilet in working order is important, but at some point, we’ve all got to bite the bullet and buy a new one. Below is a list of signs signaling that it’s time for a new toilet.
If you’re tired of plunging your toilet constantly and then mopping up the mess afterward, then you should probably start shopping for a new toilet. While some people just need to be more mindful of what they're putting in their toilets, others with older low-flow toilets could also contribute to the constant clogs and overflows.
If you ever notice seemingly random puddles around your toilet, the first thing you should do is check for cracks in the porcelain. While your toilet might be working perfectly fine, the crack and leaking water can lead to an abundance of waste and extensive damage to your floor over time.
A running toilet is not just annoying, it can also be incredibly difficult to stop. A few things you can do to remedy the problem include adjusting the fill height in the tank and adjusting the chain and flapper. However, if your toilet still continues running, you might have a larger problem on your hands that requires a toilet replacement. Don't make any decisions until you have had a plumber look at the situation!
Benefits of a New Toilet
Aside from not having to deal with all of the above issues anymore, there are additional benefits when getting a new toilet.
Newer toilets reduce water use by about 2 gallons per flush, which saves about 3,000 gallons of water per person who uses your bathroom every year!
Because newer toilets use less water every time they flush, they also can save you a large sum of money in the long run.
Getting a new toilet could significantly change the look of your bathroom and make it feel upgraded in an instant.
