5 Signs You Need a New Toilet

Did you know that the average person will spend about 92 days of their life on the toilet? That’s a lot of usage over time! So how do you know when it’s time to replace your toilet instead of repairing it? This blog breaks down some of the biggest signs you might notice if it’s time to update the porcelain throne.

Cracks in the toilet

Cracks in the tank can be one of the biggest causes of a sudden flood of water in your bathroom. Larger cracks can be easy to spot, but you might also have smaller cracks that aren’t easily seen. To test for small cracks, add a few drops of food coloring to the tank. Wait a few minutes and if you start to see the color come through the bowl, then you might have a crack. Getting cracks treated or replaced early is important. If left untreated, you could end up damaging the floor beneath the toilet.

Your toilet is more than 50 years old

The lifespan of an average toilet is 50 years. If you know your toilet is getting close to that mark, consider upgrading to a newer model.

Constant clogging

An occasional clogged toilet is normal. Especially if it is overloaded. But a toilet that clogs once a week is a sign of a bigger problem. Older models of toilets don’t have the water flow to properly flush with modern plumbing. So if you are reaching for the plunger weekly, it’s time to start thinking about getting a newer model toilet.

High water bills

Do you notice your water bill seems higher than normal? An old or running toilet can contribute to higher water bills. Many newer models of toilets use less water per flush. And using less water means less money on your monthly bill. In addition to saving money, using less water is also better for the environment. It’s a win-win!

Frequent repairs

If your toilet is broken… again, it’s time to make some decisions. A toilet that needs frequent repairs is like flushing money down the drain. Another rule of thumb for repairs is to consider if the cost of the repair is more than half of the cost of replacement. If so, it is a smart idea to cut your losses and invest in a new toilet.

If your toilet is showing signs of a problem or a possible replacement, be sure to call Strittmatters! We will send out an expert technician to diagnose the problem and find a solution that works best for your family and your budget. Give us a call at (940) 260-0386 with any questions you have!
