Signs That You Need a New Toilet Installation

A functional and reliable toilet is crucial for any home or business. However, toilets can deteriorate over time due to wear and tear, or they can develop irreparable issues that require a replacement. It's important to recognize the signs indicating that your toilet is beyond repair and needs to be replaced. 
In this article, we'll discuss the three most common signs of an irreparable toilet and why it's essential to act quickly. If your toilet is faulty or damaged, you can call Mr. Rooter Plumbing for a toilet replacement or repair. Our uniformed plumbers are on standby for your call.

Frequently, and Costly Repairs

If you find yourself frequently calling a nearby plumber to fix recurring issues with your toilet, it may be a clear sign that it's time for a replacement. Constant repairs not only drain your time and energy, but they can also put a strain on your wallet. Common repairs that can be a sign of a bigger problem include:

  • Continuous Clogging could indicate structural issues or an outdated toilet design.
  • Cracks and Leaks can be quickly patched, but persistent leaks can mean significant and deep damage.
  • Worn-Out Components are inevitable. If part replacements are adding up, then it may be cost-effective to replace the toilet itself.

Wobbly or Unstable Toilet

A wobbly or unstable toilet can be a persistent problem that affects both functionality and safety. While some issues can be fixed by tightening bolts or adjusting the toilet base, the following situations may indicate irreparable damage.
The base of the toilet endures the most pressure and stress. A cracked toilet base poses a serious risk of injury and water damage. 
Loose or deteriorated flooring can be caused by rotting wood, poor installation, or even settling of the building. 
Or you might just have an old toilet. Toilets with outdated designs may have inherent stability issues. Modern toilets are engineered to be more stable, efficient, and durable.

Water Efficiency Issues

Outdated toilets can be water hogs, leading to excessive water consumption and higher utility bills. You might want a toilet upgrade if your water bills are coming in high. WaterSense-certified toilets can offer water efficiency as low as 1.28 gallons per flush.
A toilet upgrade can also offer dual-flush capability, allowing you to choose a full flush for solid waste or a reduced flush for liquid waste.
Modern toilets also have other water-saving features like pressure-assisted flushing, intelligent bowl design, and adjustable flush options.
