The toilet is one of the most important fixtures in your home or business. But when do you know it’s time to replace your toilet? There are a few tell-tale signs that can help you decide if now is the time for a new toilet installation. Read on for more information about when to replace your toilet and who to call for professional services.
One of the first signs of trouble is if you find yourself needing frequent repairs on your current toilet. Many toilets will work for decades without issue, however, like everything else, your porcelain throne will eventually start to show its age. Frequent toilet repairs can be a sign that it’s time to consider toilet replacement.
Another sign you may find when it is time for a replacement is that your toilet is hard to flush or noisy when it finally does. Additionally, there may be something more seriously wrong with the innards of your toilet if you have to plunge it every time it is used. That may be an indicator that it requires a replacement instead of a toilet repair. Any leak or problem with flushing is another big sign to be looking out for. If you notice leakage or experience problems flushing, contact a professional at Green Leaf, right away.
Leaking from a damaged seal or from the tank itself may mean that the mechanisms are starting to wear out and need to be replaced. This issue does not have to escalate into something costly and unmanageable, but it should be handled quickly and carefully.
A slow flush is an indication that the water pressure may be too low. There could also be a blockage in the pipes. A professional will be able to best advise you on how to proceed and should be called immediately.
Additionally, your toilet could just be old and out of date. If you have an older model with inefficient flushing power, then replacing it with a newer model could save you money in water bills over time.
Finally, if your old porcelain bowl has become stained and discolored, then it might be time for an upgrade!
