When your toilet clogs or overflows, the mess can take hours to clean up. Of course, the crisis usually occurs at the wrong time like when you are having a party or during a holiday. Imagine if you are not at home when the water crisis occurs! Then you are left to fix the problem yourself or quickly find a plumber to perform the repairs for you. So, how do you know when your toilet is in its final stages and requires a replacement?
1. INCESSANT CLOGGING- It’s not uncommon for objects to get flushed down the toilet, many of which may land in areas of piping that are inaccessible. Not only items, but also deposits from minerals in the water that may continue to build along the piping until it’s completely blocked. The resulting blockage could be requiring you to plunge your toilet multiple times on a weekly basis; at this point, it is probably time to replace at least some plumbing components or invest in a new toilet.
3. CONSTANT REPAIRS- The costs of those small fixes add up; the stopper in the tank or the toilet handle are common and easy enough to fix. Sometimes the accompanying pipes need repair. At some point, the cost of the repairs becomes greater than that of a new toilet. If it’s been years since your toilet has been replaced, newer units have become much more efficient and water saving.
