Toilet Installed by a Plumber
Your average toilet has several working parts, if you find it has failed do not attempt a DIY, have your new toilet installed by a plumber.
Apart from the bowl and tank, other parts include a tank lever, a flush valve, float ball, float arm, overflow tube, inlet valve, filler tube, inlet tube, and bowl to floor seal to name a few. If it seems like most of these parts need replacing at once, then it might end up being more cost-effective to get a replacement for your toilet.
If you’re dealing with frequent clogs, it might not be due to normal occurrences. After all, we all have to unclog or plunge our toilets every once in a while, but if there’s an issue further down the pipes, then there might be something a professional will need to look at. If it’s a more complicated issue then you might need to consider other options. If the handle itself can’t jiggle or flush either, then the toilet might be broken entirely. Additionally, there might also be an issue of a toilet that is constantly running. Apart from causing irritating noise, it is also wasting a lot of water. If something like this goes unaddressed, it can lead to much worse problems.
Plenty of other mishaps can happen that will result in having to opt for a replacement for your toilet, such as porcelain cracks that can turn into frequent leaking. Visual scratches can also make it difficult to keep clean since it can trap more and more dirt as time goes on. The next time you’re cleaning your toilet, be sure to do an inspection of cracks and scratches on your toilet bowl and tank so you can address the problem before they become too severe, especially since they can lead to damaged flooring due to flooding and water damage.
A bad toilet can lead to waste of water as well, so you might want to consider your next replacement for your toilet to be a new water-saving unit that uses less than 2 gallons of water per flush.
