Homeowners often don’t give some things we use many times a day such as the toilet a second thought. Built to last you probably haven’t considered replacing a toilet when it’s not causing any problems. Still time can take it’s toll and it’s possible things can start to go wrong and unnoticed that require attention. Here are some signs that may signal it’s time to replace old faithful.
Cracks and leaks
A closer look might reveal hairline cracks in the toilet tank. Once tiny cracks develop they can expand and grow enough to allow water in the tank to leak. That tank of water has the potential to cause serious moisture problems if not repaired. Some cracks can be fixed by a Victoria plumbing company or they may advise you a replacement is the best option.
You may have noticed your toilet tends to wobble and could be easily fixed by tightening the bolts anchoring it to the floor. A leak over time could mean it’s a more serious issue due to a rotten floor. The only way to determine the cause is to remove the toilet and check it out.
More efficient flushing
Recent changes in the design of toilets means they now require less water in the tank to flush efficiently. Some models have a dual flush system with a full flush for solid waste and a partial flush for liquid waste. Conserving water is a very important topic so these changes are there to comply with new standard.
Comfort and style
A bathroom remodel might have you replacing the toilet to colour match the other new fixtures. Sleeker designs and smaller tanks mean less space is needed to accommodate the new commode.
