Do you know the old plumbing expression:
“A new year, a new toilet?”
Well, you probably don’t, because we just made it up!
However, for many homeowners in Orange County, now is the perfect time to stop continually pulling out the plunger or simply having to stare at an outdated fixture and to invest in a new toilet.
So how should you know when it’s time to replace instead of repair?
Here are 5 main signs that show it’s time to consider a new toilet in 2021:
1. Multiple Cracks in The Toilet
Sudden puddles around your throne? Look for cracks in the tank and bowl. These signs of damage will not only leave you with the need to clean up often; it can be a water waster and eventually lead to water damage, around the area too.
2. It’s Older Than You
An old and outdated toilet is not only an eyesore; it’s an energy-efficient nightmare, too. Older models are not made with today’s water-saving standards in mind. An upgrade will not only give your bathroom a visual upgrade; it will give it a more eco-friendly one, too.
3. Sudden Wobbling
A loose screw or two could be the reason your toilet is suddenly wobbling all over the place. However, if the screws appear to be fair, there could be a more significant issue at hand, and a professional should come and inspect the problem.
4. Constant Clogs
If your trusty bathroom plunger has been working overtime the last few months, it might be time to retire it and invest in an upgraded tank instead. The clogs could be occurring because your toilet is just too old to perform like it once was or that a more significant issue is at hand.
5. You’re Constantly Calling Us
It comes to a point where you have to decide if it’s worth it to skip the repairs and arrange to replace it instead. If you are always calling your plumber for a repair on your toilet, it might be in your best interest to ask them next time an issue arises if a new toilet makes the most sense.
