Even though modern toilets are designed to last quite a few years, all of them will eventually need to be replaced. An old or inefficient toilet can become a major headache, and that is why you should keep an eye out for any signs that it might be time to replace the unit:
Moisture Near The Base
When toilets are well-maintained, they should be completely dry at all times. Moisture near the base of the unit could be the result of a hairline crack, loose screws, or a deteriorating wax seal.
The first thing that you should do is turn off your home’s water and inspect the unit for any visible signs of damage. If you can’t find the source of moisture, it’s best to call in a professional!
The most common cause of residential clogs is flushing “unflushable” items down the toilet. The occasional clog might not be a big deal, but you should be wary if your pipes are constantly clogged.
You might have a buildup of debris deeper in the system. One of our team members can quickly unclog the system and give you tips on how to prevent future clogs.
Wobbling is another issue that should never be ignored. The base might no longer sit flat because the floor underneath is beginning to rot away.
This issue can also be caused by nothing more than a few loose screws or bolts, but you should always err on the side of caution when it comes to your home’s plumbing system.
If you have recently noticed any of these issues with your toilets, then it is time to call the pros. Please contact us today to schedule an appointment with one of our friendly technicians.
