How Do You Know When You Need to Replace Your Toilet?

One of the key features in your home is your toilet. If it’s not working correctly, the whole family suffers, and in some cases, the toilet can be dangerous. How do you know when your toilet needs replacing? Knowing the indicators that your toilet needs replacing can save you money.

Age: If your toilet is over 25 years old, it could easily need replacing, and a new toilet can save you money on your water bill. Toilets before 1994 used 3.5 gallons of water per flush, while those installed since then use only 1.6 gallons of water.

If you have an older toilet, changing the toilet can save you money on your water bill. Calling Four Seasons Plumbing, can get your toilet replaced quickly and efficiently.

Cracks: If you notice water around your toilet, and you don’t have children who are likely to have been playing in the water, check to make sure there are no cracks. If you see none, and it’s still leaking, you will need to call a plumber to check further.

It’s best to have this checked as soon as possible to avoid having to call an emergency plumber. That’s when it’s time to call Four Seasons Plumbing in Ashville, we can diagnose and solve your problems quickly.

Constant running: If your toilet keeps running after you’ve flushed it, your toilet could need replacing. Leaks, or a failure of parts within the toilet, can cause constant running, and an internal repair may fix your problem. However, you will want to have it checked before you need an emergency plumber.

You may be able to replace some of the internal parts but if the problem persists, you will need to call a plumber.

Constant clogging: If you take the plunger with you when you go to the bathroom, your toilet could need replacing. Repeated clogs are indicative of a deeper problem and calling a plumber can help you identify and solve the problem.

Mineral deposits build-up: If you have hard water, minerals build up within the lines, just like it does in your sinks and refrigerator. However, your sink and your refrigerator have filters. Your toilet doesn’t. This can cause your toilet to stop working, and you will need to call a plumber. Four Seasons Plumbing in Asheville, NC can help you with this problem and all your bathroom plumbing needs

Repeated repairs: One of the primary signs of a toilet that needs replacing is repeated repairs or calls to emergency plumbers. If you’re having to make a repair, or call for one, monthly, or more often, your toilet may need replacing. As toilets age, they naturally break-down, and you will need to replace them. Four Seasons Plumbing in Asheville can help you with all your needs.

Wobbling: If your toilet wobbles when you sit on it, it may need attention. It’s possible that the bolts need tightening, but it’s also possible there are structural issues under the toilet that are causing the problem.
