Spring is almost here, and it’s a great time to spruce things up in your home! Unfortunately, many people tend to be fixated on replacing some of their “cosmetic” items rather than the necessities that they use every day. Instead of swapping out that giant mirror that you have in your hallway, perhaps it would be a good time to replace your semi-functioning toilet. Remember, we use them multiple times a day! A fully functioning toilet is paramount for our daily needs.
When It’s Time To Replace Your Toilet
Listed below are some of the telltale signs that your toilet needs to “retire”:
-If your toilet clogs up on a regular basis, it may be time to get it swapped out. An easy way to determine if you need a replacement is if you ask yourself this magic question: how often do you have to use your plunger? If you find that you have to constantly flush twice, or if you need to use your plunger at least once a week, you should really consider getting a new toilet.
-Does your toilet have any cracks on it? If so, these porcelain cracks can quickly expand and cause a wave of damage in your home. You can easily prevent this by replacing your toilet.
-You may be equipped with toilets that waste plenty of water. Some of these toilets use up to five gallons of water during each flush- this can easily rack up your water bill. By getting a new low-flush toilet, you can save by using only 1.6 gallons of water or less per flush. Along with a lower water bill, you’ll also be doing your part to help improve the environment!
-If you find that you need to repair your toilet often, it’s best to cut your losses by getting a new one.
