Frequently Asked Questions
Should your toilet clog more than once every week, you need it repaired.
If your toilet tank or bowl has a crack, get it repaired as soon as possible. A cracked tank or bowl can lead to water damage, a flooded bathroom, and a high water bill. In addition, it can be difficult to find replacement parts for some toilets, so it is often easier to hire a professional to fix them.
Your toilet should not run constantly, but many people do not notice when their toilet starts running because they only think about it when they use the bathroom. Suppose your toilet runs continuously or intermittently for long periods (several minutes). In that case, you will need to call a plumber for repairs. If your toilet is occasionally running throughout the day, replace the rubber flapper in the tank with one that fits correctly.
Older toilets use significantly more water per flush than newer models (~25 Litres compared to ~11 Litres). Because of this, older toilets cost substantially more on average per year.
Here are some common signs that your toilet needs repair rather than a replacement:
- Clogs frequently: If your toilet clogs more often than you think it should, it may be something as simple as a worn flapper valve or a faulty fill valve. These components are relatively inexpensive, so fixing them will cost less than replacing the entire unit. However, if the problem is recurring clogs caused by roots growing into pipes or other external factors, repairing the underlying issue will probably require replacement rather than repair.
- The tank or bowl has a crack: If your toilet has a cracked tank or bowl, it will leak water into the bathroom and cause damage to the flooring and subflooring. Replacing the flooring and subflooring will be more expensive than getting the crack fixed.
- Cracks in porcelain: These are very common with older toilets, but the porcelain can certainly crack at any point during its lifespan. We can easily repair a small chip or crack without replacing the entire unit.
- Your toilet won't stop running: As mentioned earlier older toilets use significantly more water per flush than newer models. Because of this, older toilets cost substantially more on average per year.
- It wastes more water
- Your toilet makes strange sounds
- Problems with flushing or No flush
The first thing to do when a toilet begins acting up is to call in a plumber and ask for an assessment of the issue. If the problem is minor, repairs may make more sense than replacement.
As with all plumbing fixtures, toilets will wear out and need replacement. Typically, toilets need replacement after 25 years of use to be considered the average toilet lifespan.
Here are some signs that can help you decide if your toilet should stay or go:
Incessant Clogging: Nobody likes to deal with a clogged toilet. While you can use a plunger to clear a clog, you'll want to get it replaced if your toilet is constantly clogging.
Cracks. When you notice puddles of water around your toilet, you may want to check for cracks in the porcelain. Cracks are unsightly and allow moisture to escape from your toilet and onto your bathroom floor. While cracks can often be repaired, if there are significant damages or if the crack goes through the entire porcelain material, it's best to replace the entire unit.
Plentiful Repairs. Let's say you have an older toilet that requires frequent repairs, such as a new flapper or flush valve every few months. The cumulative cost of these repairs could exceed what it would cost to buy a new toilet, so consider replacing older models after several years.
Age of your toilet: Older toilets tend to be inefficient when water usage. Why? If your toilet is 20 years or older, it's likely time to replace it. Older toilets can use as much as six gallons of water per flush, while newer ones use only 1.6 gallons.
The short answer is Yes, you can. Replacing a toilet is an easy job for the average homeowner. Whether doing it yourself or hiring a plumber, fixing your toilet involves more than dollars.
Plumbers have years of experience and know exactly how to install your new toilet properly so that it won't leak or cause any other problems with your bathroom plumbing system. If you do it yourself, you might not get the wax ring seal right or forget to put it on a washer or gasket, resulting in leaks and water damage that could cost you thousands of dollars.
Also, if your new toilet doesn't fit in the space where the old one was, or if the flooring is uneven, professional plumbers will be able to fix these problems without damaging your home's structure further.
DIYs would not save you from structural damage, leaks and plumbing emergencies that may arise due to improper installation. If you want to avoid dealing with these issues, hire a professional plumber who has experience installing toilets and can do the job right the first time.
Impact on your home: You must consider how your actions will affect your home before installing a new toilet or any other fixture. If something goes wrong during the installation process, expensive repairs might be required to fix it. A simple mistake could cost you thousands of dollars. When you hire an experienced plumber for toilet installation, he or she knows how to install it correctly without error so that your home won't be damaged in any way.
