We all put a lot of effort into maintaining your toilet and ensuring everything is working in proper order. One of the crucial systems you need to maintain is your plumbing and drain system. When it comes to your toilet, if it does not work properly or it appears to be damaged, the ordeal can be frustrating. Has your toilet been giving you trouble lately? Plumbers are usually more than happy to manage any repairs, but sometimes it is just not worth it. Sometimes, you just want to replace your toilet with a newer model. It can be difficult to decide if it is the right time to replace your toilet.

Signs to replace your toilet:

#1. Clogging time and again

Yes! Nobody likes to deal with a clogged toilet. While common, random or recurring clogs can indicate an issue. If you have an old, low flush toilet, you may experience clogging time and again. If you experience clogs more than once a week, or the clogs seem random and odd, you should probably replace your toilet.

#2. Cracks and Leaks

In the long run, many toilets will begin to develop hairline cracks in the tank, bowl and other areas. Once these cracks develop, they can expand and progress into leaks. Because your toilet is always holding water, even a tiny leak can cause a serious moisture problem over time.

Cracks that can be located can sometimes be repaired by a plumbing professional, but some can be so severe or difficult to reach that replacement is the only practical solution. Allow an experienced plumber Toronto to help assess the condition of your toilet.

#3. Ineffective Flushing

A lot has changed since the invention of the modern flush toilet, including water efficiency standards. Modern flushing has the flushing more than an older one. If your toilet is older than that, there is a good chance you could get a boost in water efficiency by upgrading. For effective flushing, you have to install the new toilet.

#4. Toilet Repairs is expensive than replacement

Sometimes, a toilet is going to cost more to repair it than to replace it. At this point, your plumber should be advising you to replace your toilet rather than repairing it. Especially if they know that the toilet is just going to break again in a short amount of time.

If you think that it is time to replace your toilet, this is a conversation that you should be having with your plumber. Your Toronto plumber is able to answer any questions that you may have about your plumbing and replacing the toilet. They will advise you if it is the right time to replace the toilet. The professional plumber can help you decide the best toilet for your bathroom, and manage the entire replacement process.
