If your toilet is well-maintained, you can keep it working for a long time. However, you might eventually discover a plumbing emergency that can’t easily be fixed. When this happens, you’ll have to call the experts at KB Complete to get a toilet replacement for your Kansas home. However, it’s important to know when you need to call for a replacement. If you can’t tell when you need to replace it, you might wind up breaking your toilet and causing some major water damage.
Here are six signs you should get a toilet replacement for your Kansas home:
Older, heavily-cleaned toilets often accumulate a variety of scratches on them. Not only do the scratches look unappealing, but they can make it harder to keep your toilet clean. If your toilet looks heavily scratched, you notice you’re cleaning your toilet too often, or just want to get rid of those scratches, call us about getting a new toilet.
Older toilets often more repair work to keep running. Also, older toilets usually aren’t as water-efficient as newer models. In the 1990s, the government mandated that new toilets use a special flushing system to use less water. Buying a newer toilet model can help you save money on your water bills as well as saving the environment.
If you’re big on going green, you might want to consider getting a new toilet to save on water. Toilets made in the early 1990s tend to use three to five gallons per flush while newer low-flush models only use around two. If you’re looking to save water, think about upgrading your old toilet with a newer model.
A wobbling toilet is a sign of either a minor problem or a major problem. On one hand, some screws might be loose and need some tightening. However, wobbling can also be a sign the floor beneath the toilet is damaged or rotting due to water. Either way, you should call a plumber in case it’s something serious.
If your home has hard water, minerals can build up on your toilets and other plumbing. You’ll often find the minerals in your toilet’s inlet holes or siphon tube, preventing water from flowing effectively. There are times you can chip away at the blockage and save your toilet, but other times you’ll just have to get a new one. If you have hard water and want to avoid this issue, consider purchasing a water softener for your home.
Older appliances, fixtures, and plumbing tend to require more repairs to keep them operational. Repairing your toilet often will result in the bills adding up and eventually cost more than a new toilet. Next time you call to get an older toilet fixed, ask about whether getting a new toilet would be more viable.
