Replace your toilet or repair it?
Replace your toilet if it is having issues that are beyond the scope of repair, but always hire a professional plumber to do so. Of course, there are also circumstances in which it might be simply better to repair your toilet. As far as ways your toilet can decide to quit on you, there’s plenty. Toilets that aren’t treated properly can crack with time fairly easily. Every time you clog or unclog your toilet, you inch it closer to needing to Replace or Repair your Toilet. That means that even with, and because of, regular maintenance your toilet will eventually wear down, or at least specific components will.
One thing many folks do to avoid having to call a plumber with a clog is to pour xtremely hot water down the toilet bowl. In theory, this might sound like a good idea, the hot water loosens up the color, freeing up the toilet. What’s one bowl of hot water vs a call to a plumber, right? Wrong. Doing so can cause the clog to expand, and weaken the porcelain resulting in cracks and leaks. In fact, using this technique guarantees you’ll have to replace your toilet sooner, rather than later, even if it does seem to produce results for now. Don’t rely on luck with plumbing apparatus that could flood your house if left unchecked.
Our Plumbers know how to properly inspect, diagnose, repair, or replace your toilet seat. Besides experience and training, another big part of this is actually the tools. Using improper tools, or even the correct tools improperly can cause damages to the installation of your new hardware and should be left to professionals.
Our professional plumbers make sure every detail, down to the proper tightness of the bolts on your new toilet is installed properly. Too loose and your toilet can wobble around- or even break off! Too tight and you can crack the base of the toilet. If you’re worried about installing your own toilet, we offer this service as well.
