Signs It's Time to Replace Your Toilet

Your toilet is an essential part of your bathroom and is one of the fixtures that is used by everyone on a regular basis. This constant use can eventually cause your toilet to deteriorate, which may require repairs. Sometimes however, the deterioration of your toilet may require more than just repairs.

How do you know when it is time to replace your toilet? Should you wait till serious issues like cracks and breaks are evident before you do so, or are there other indicators that will let you know when it is high time you did? Here are some of the signs you have to look out for to determine when your toilet needs to be replaced:

Signs Its Time to Replace Your Toilet

  • Constant clogging – If your toilets are constantly clogged and you need to break out the plunger after each use, you might want to consider finding a replacement before things get worse. If your toilets are constantly getting stopped up and are a few decades old, it is time for you to get it replaced with a newer one that won’t give you as much grief.
  • The seat and the tank wobble – When you notice the seat of your toilet wobbling, or the tank seems to be shaky and shows signs of falling, you should consider replacing your toilet. While the problem can be something as simple as loose screws, other more serious issues can also cause this to happen. It might be a good idea to have your toilet checked to see if it does need to go and get replaced with a new one.
  • You’ve been having it repaired more frequently – Having your toilet repaired once in a while for problems like a loose handle and a faulty flapper is okay. If you need to have your toilet repaired for one thing or another almost every week, then it might be more cost-effective for you to replace your toilet with a new one.
  • There are cracks and breaks – Yes, when you notice that your toilet has cracks or breaks, even if these are not in areas where you sit, you need to get a new toilet installed. A cracked water tank can slowly turn into a deluge that can result in water damage. A cracked toilet seat can result in more serious problems and even injuries if this breaks while you are sitting on it. When you notice cracks, don’t think twice to replace your toilet for your safety and to prevent more serious issues.
