3 Reasons to Replace Your Toilet

3 Reasons to Replace Your Toilet

We know that it can be tough to tell when it’s the right time to part with this plumbing appliance. You don’t want to replace your toilet unnecessarily if it has more years of life left in it. However, you don’t want to keep one that may risk leaking water out to your bathroom, or one that wastes a lot of water. Find out our recommendations for the best time to replace your fixture here.

You Want to Save Water

Today’s toilets use far less water than they once did. But that doesn’t mean they are ineffective. Older toilets used 3.5 gallons of water with every flush. Today’s low-flow toilets use only 1.6 gallons per flush. They work by using more pressure to deliver the same powerful flush you expect while helping out the environment. Some even have the option to use less water for liquid waste.

You Are Remodeling

Replacing a toilet might be a good idea for aesthetic purposes. You might want to find a toilet that matches your decor or one that’s smaller and more subtle than your older one. Another great reason to remodel and to change up your toilet is to find one that works better for someone in the home with a disability or for a small child.

Your Toilet Is Leaking

Most leaks are fairly harmless. You can fix a leak between the tank and the bowl by putting in a new flapper (or calling a professional to help). And fixing a leak beneath the toilet, where it meets the floor, might be as simple as screwing it in tighter. Or a plumber may need to replace the wax seal between the floor and the toilet.
