You use it multiple times a day, but when’s the last time you really thought about your toilet? If you’re like most people, you don’t give it much thought until there’s a problem with it. If you’re experiencing any of the toilet-related problems below, it’s time to consider a replacement.
It’s 25 Years or Older
Toilet efficiency has come a long way over the last quarter of a century. If your toilet is over 25 years old, it’s time to consider a replacement. Not only are the inner workings of your toilet likely on their last leg, but your toilet is likely using more water than is necessary, which means high water bills that you shouldn’t be paying.
A Cracked Tank
Anytime that a toilet in your Monroe, LA, home experiences a crack in the tank, it’s time to call for toilet installation services. Toilets are specifically designed to have a holding tank to keep freshwater. When that tank experiences even the tiniest of cracks, it can allow water to seep out. This can wreak havoc on your flooring and other bathroom components near where the leak is.
You’re Constantly Replacing Internal Parts
It’s not uncommon for internal parts of your toilet to break every now and then. When you’re replacing a flush valve here and an inlet valve there, it’s not a big concern. However, if you’ve turned into the weekend plumber because your toilet is constantly breaking, it’s time to consider a replacement. It’s not worth investing money in fixing every internal component when you can spend less than that on a brand-new toilet for your home.
The Bowl Is Round
While it isn’t a cause for immediate concern, a round toilet bowl isn’t the most comfortable. Upgrading to an elongated-shaped bowl can add more seat area to the bowl. It also allows your toilet to stay cleaner and prevents most odors from escaping. Our plumbers at Gordon AC & Plumbing can help you upgrade your toilet bowl.
Everyone that has owned a toilet has likely dealt with a clog or two. That’s not uncommon. However, if you’re dealing with bouts of excessive clogging, the culprit could actually be your aging toilet. Talking with an experienced plumber can help you to determine if an upgrade with solve your excessive clogging problem.
It Has Internal Leaks
The water in your toilet tank should remain there until you flush it. Then, it will travel down to the bowl. If you notice that the water in your tank is seeping into your bowl without any flushing, it’s an indication of an internal leak. If fixing the drain stopper doesn’t solve the problem, you will likely need to replace your whole toilet.
If you’re experiencing any of the issues above, it’s likely time to get a new toilet. Call our plumbing experts at Gordon AC & Plumbing today to get quality toilet installation services for your home.
