While everyone uses the toilet every day, most don’t think about this key fixture unless it stops working properly. If you are having problems with your toilet, it may be possible to get it repaired, but you might need a full replacement instead. Our team at Troy and Sons Plumbing has worked on countless toilets over the years, and we know how to tell when it’s time for a toilet replacement. In this article, we’ll go over a few things to look at in order to tell if you need a new toilet.
- Leaks – One sign that it’s time for a toilet replacement is leaks, especially if they happen frequently. While some leaks can be repaired effectively, others are caused by cracks in the tank or bowl that are much more difficult to seal. If there is water around the bottom of your toilet, we encourage you to give us a call to get a professional assessment.
- Wobbling – Another indicator that you need toilet replacement is any wobbling or rocking from the toilet in question. Your toilet is not supposed to move at all, so even a little bit of unsteadiness is cause for concern. If you notice your toilet moving or shifting, you should call our team to get the issue checked out.
- Frequent Problems- Lastly, if you’ve had to have your toilet repaired several times over the past few years, it’s probably time for a full replacement. Our team can handle all your plumbing needs, and we’ll install a new model that will work reliably for years to come.
