Your toilet giving you problems?
If so, never fear. All-Star Plumbing can help! Let’s go through some reasons why you may want to replace your existing toilet.
What are the common causes of toilet problems?
When it comes to plumbing problems, your toilet can be the leading cause of headaches in the bathroom. Being aware of some of the most common causes can help save you a lot of money in the long run. A few of these causes are:
Becoming familiar with these warning signs and doing regular maintenance checks can help prevent a plumbing emergency. Think of it like doing preventative care for your health, only it’s for your plumbing fixture.
How long do toilets last, and can they be repaired?
On average, a modern toilet can last you up to 50 years. However, if you have one that is 30 years or older, it could break down easier than a newer one. This doesn’t mean you have to get rid of it, though. Replacing older toilets can save a lot of trouble in the long run, but if they are still in working condition, there is no need for an immediate replacement. Manufacturers have made toilets more efficient in function and design in the past three decades, ultimately extending their lives. Keeping up with the maintenance on it can extend the life of your toilet by decades, especially if you have a new one in your home.

When should you repair a toilet versus replacing it?
Repairing your toilet should be your first option, especially if you are experiencing these minor issues since they can save you money:
If any of these minor issues become a recurring problem, then you should consider replacing your toilet. Other, more severe problems,, such as a crack in the bowl, require you immediately replace it. People also choose to replace their toilets for less significant issues like cosmetic issues, comfort, or convenience. For example, toilets can be challenging to use if they are too short or too tall for someone.
Lastly, if your toilet is older than 25 years, it is recommended that you completely replace it due to inefficient water usage — among other potential concerns.
