5 Signs It’s Time to Replace Your Toilet

Truth be told, toilets do need to be replaced, but it’s hard to know when you should opt for a replacement instead of a repair.

Here are five signs it’s time to replace your toilet:

1. It’s Constantly Running

Toilet leaks often happen when the toilet flapper or valve seal becomes old or worn out. This constant leak is driving up your water bill.

Plus, older toilets use up to four times more water per flush than newer ones.

2. It’s Cracked

If you notice water puddling around the toilet, there could be cracks at the base.

This can damage flooring and increase your water bill.

3. Constant Clogging

If your toilet seems to clog often, it may be damaged from years of abuse.

If you had been flushing things like wipes or using too much toilet paper, your aggressive plunging might have damaged your toilet over the years.

4. Scratches in The Bowl

Scratches on the porcelain can make it difficult to keep your toilet clean. Bacteria and dirt can stay in the cracks, forcing you to clean more often.

It’s high time to replace your worn toilet with one requiring less TLC.

5. Mineral Deposits

In addition to being unsightly, mineral deposits caused by hard water can collect in inlet holes and siphon tubes, disrupting the flow of water.

If the buildup is bad enough, it’s better to replace the toilet.
