Toilet Repair & Replacement

Should You Replace or Repair Your Toilet?

There are several factors to consider when deciding whether to repair or replace your toilet, including the problem’s source, the toilet’s age and condition, and your budget. 

Here are some considerations to help you make an informed decision:

  • Minor Issues: If the problem with your toilet is minor and localized, such as a leaking seal, a loose handle, or a faulty flush valve, repairing the specific component should effectively restore functionality.
  • Budget Constraints: Repairing a toilet is often more cost-effective than replacing it, especially for relatively minor issues. If the repair cost is significantly lower than the cost of a new toilet, it makes sense to opt for repairs.
  • Age of the Toilet: If your toilet is relatively new and in good overall condition, consider repairing rather than replacing. Newer toilets are designed to last many years with proper maintenance.
  • Extensive Damage: If your toilet has extensive damage, such as cracks in the porcelain, significant leaks, or structural issues, it may be more practical to replace the entire unit rather than attempt repairs.
  • Persistent Problems: If your toilet has recurring issues, such as frequent clogs, constant running, or outdated flushing mechanisms, replacing it with a newer, more efficient model may provide a long-term solution and improve overall performance.
  • Water Efficiency: Older toilets may be less water-efficient and consume more water per flush than modern, low-flow models. If water conservation is a priority, replacing your toilet with a WaterSense-certified or low-flow model can help reduce water usage and lower utility bills over time.
  • Aesthetic Considerations: If your toilet is outdated, worn, or no longer matches the aesthetics of your bathroom, replacing it with a newer model can enhance the appearance of the space and increase the value of your home.

If you need more clarification about the best course of action, our plumbers can provide valuable insights and recommendations based on the condition of your toilet and your individual needs and preferences.

Do You Need a Plumber to Repair or Replace Your Toilet?

As a homeowner, there’s a good chance you’ve encountered an issue with a toilet at some point or another, whether it’s a malfunctioning valve or loose toilet handle. But when is it time to call in the professionals? Here are some signs to watch for:

Leaks can originate from the base of the toilet due to a deteriorating wax seal or from cracks in the tank or bowl. Leaks require prompt repair to prevent water damage.

If the toilet clogs regularly, it may indicate a more serious obstruction in the plumbing that requires professional attention.

Issues like the toilet requiring multiple flushes or not flushing properly can point to problems with the flushing mechanism, such as a malfunctioning flapper or fill valve. This may require a plumber to diagnose and address.

If the toilet requires frequent, costly repairs, it may be more cost-effective to replace the entire unit rather than continuing to repair it.

Gurgling or sucking sounds when flushing can indicate a blocked drain vent, which requires professional diagnosis and repair.

Hard water can cause mineral deposits to accumulate in the toilet, clogging the water inlets and reducing efficiency, potentially requiring a full replacement.
