When Should You Replace Your Toilet?, Kalispell, Montana

Toilets may seem like a permanent fixture in your home, but they eventually need to be replaced. While minor repairs can keep your commode running in the short term, over time, a faulty fixture leads to utility bill spikes, water damage, and mold and mildew growth. Call a plumbing professional if you notice the following warning signs.

When Is It Time To Replace Your Toilet?

Multiple Repairs

If you’ve had toilet troubles numerous times over the past few years, the cost of frequent plumbing repairs may exceed the price of a new model. Upgraded toilets usually come with a warranty, so you won’t continue to pay out of pocket for repairs. Plumbing contractors can help you find the right model for your home and install it properly.

Tank Cracks

Extensive tank cracks are nearly impossible to repair and can cause costly water damage. These fissures may be very difficult to see, but if water is pooling around the base of your toilet with no other apparent explanation, you should call a professional. Your plumber will determine if it’s a simple leak or a more serious issue and tell you if it’s time for a replacement.

Outdated Model toilet

Older toilets use a lot of water, which is bad for the environment and your wallet. As of January 1, 1994, federal law mandates new toilets can use no more than 1.6 gallons per flush. The latest models with low flow or dual flush technology allow you to use even less water, thus keeping your water bill low and reducing your environmental impact.
