How to Know When Its Time for a New Toilet

Have you thought about investing in a new toilet, but arent sure if it is necessary? At Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Pittsburgh, we provide premium residential and commercial services for local customers including toilet repair, toilet replacement and new toilet installation in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and surrounding metro area neighborhoods. It isnt always easy to know whether a new toilet is an essential upgrade, or if your money is better spent on other improvement projects. Here are some warning signs that can point to the need for a toilet replacement.

The Tank or Bowl is Cracked

Do you frequently notice puddles of water around your toilet area? While this can sometimes point to a deteriorating seal, you may also have a cracked toilet bowl or tank. While there are many parts of a toilet that can be repaired or replaced, a crack in the tank or bowl will require a complete toilet replacement.

Rocking or Wobbling

If you feel like youre going to fall over every time you sit on your porcelain throne, then this can indicate severe damage. A professional plumber can conduct an inspection to better determine the source of the issue. In some cases, tightened bolts are all that is needed to fix the problem. However, if you have been dealing with a hidden leak, then the floor underneath the toilet may have suffered water damage and rot. If this is the case, then a new toilet and floor restoration may be needed.

Your Toilet Was Installed Before 1995

Even if your toilet isnt suffering from a lot of damage or wear and tear, you might still consider replacing it if it was installed prior to 1995. During this time, new standards were implemented, requiring that toilets use no more than 1.6 gallons per flush. Since then, many manufacturers have gone above and beyond this expectation. This means that simply switching to a modern toilet could save you a lot of money long term by saving more on monthly utility costs.

Youre Ready for an Upgrade

If your toilet is outdated, then you might just want to upgrade in order to ensure that your fixtures match with your dcor preferences. Modern toilets are not only more efficient, but they often come with enhanced features like seat warmers, automatic flushing, dual flushing, built in bidets and self-cleaning capabilities. These advanced toilets can provide homeowners with added convenience, comfort and cost savings.
