Signs To Replace Your Toilet

Over our lifetime, each of us will probably spend 1 year to 3 years sitting on the toilet. That’s right … not a chair or couch, but a toilet. All of us would like to think that none of that time will include plunging it … or cleaning it more than necessary from wornout porcelain, or cracks that form slow leaks on our floor.

Here are several signs that it could be time to replace your toilet in Lynn, MA and the North Shore area.

Clogs
I cannot think of a worse clog in the house to deal with, then one in the toilet. When we flush we don’t like to think about what happens, just that it disappears. If your toilet is starting to have clogs more often, it might be time to consult a plumber and see if your outdated toilet is part of the problem.

Constant Repair
Most of us know a few tricks or two to stop the water running on our toilet. But at some point you should really consider if it’s time to replace instead of repair. Waldman Plumbing can help you decide if it’s time to update.

Cracked Porcelain
Tiny cracks can slowly develop in the porcelain. They start out being barely noticeable, but can increase to cracks that can leak water onto the floor. Don’t let those cracks cause water damage in your bathroom, or worse even, break entirely!

Cleaning Scratched Porcelain
Porcelain is not immune to becoming worn and scratched over time. That wear and tear not only shows, but makes it more difficult and time consuming to get it cleaned. Who wants to spend any more time cleaning their toilet than necessary?

Go Green
Did you know that many older toilets can use from 3-5 gallons of water per flush? Upgrading your toilet can lower that to less than 2 gallons every time you push on that handle. That means saving money on your next water bill and helping to save the environment at the same time!
