It may seem like toilets last forever, but they don't.
At some point, they will begin to give you so much trouble that you will have to replace them. But how do you know when it's actually time to replace one of your toilets?
Here's our list of the 5 signs to look out for.
- Constant clogs - if your toilet is getting clogged continuously and you've tried every home remedy there is and finally called in a plumber only to have to call him in several times - well it's a sign that it's time to invest in a new toilet.
- Cracks - whether there are cracks in the base or the bowl or the tank - if you notice a crack anywhere in your toilet it's definitely time to get a new one.
- Inefficient - old toilets are notoriously inefficient. They can waste alot of water (and your money) so if you are holding on to an older toilet - consider how much you may be able to save with a brand new, more efficient commode.
- Constantly running - if you have had to recently replace a flapper or other component of your toilet to fix an issue such as running water, it's a sign that things are starting to wear out. If you find that you are having to replace a series of parts from time to time - it may be worth your while to go ahead and replace that model with a newer version.
- Doesn't feel secured - when you sit on the toilet and you feel that it wobbles - it may be a sign that the floor underneath the toilet is damaged somehow. This could be an easy fix, but it could also mean that there's a leaking problem with your toilet. If you have continuous leaking problems then it's definitely time to replace it.
