Telling Signs That Your Residential Property Needs A New Toilet


Common Causes of a Leaking Toilet: Part One

Be aware of these telling signs.

Your toilet is one of the most essential plumbing appliances in your home. Knowing when toilet repairs and replacements are required will help you save time and money on significant plumbing issues caused by a damaged toilet. Here are some telling signs that you need a new toilet. 

Frequent Clogs

A clogged toilet can be inconvenient, annoying, and unpleasant. Although clogged toilets occur in most toilets occasionally, if your toilet is consistently clogged and you find yourself reaching for a plunger frequently, this is a common sign that it’s time for a new toilet.

Your Toilet Isn’t Flushing 

If your toilet isn’t flushing, it’s a severe problem. People frequently continue to use non-flushing toilets or attempt to fix them on their own, exacerbating the issue. If you discover your toilet isn’t flushing, contact us at Alpha Plumbing immediately about a toilet replacement to avoid needing extensive plumbing repairs.

Your Toilet Is Constantly Running 

It is typical for your toilet to run for a short time after it has been used. On the other hand, water consistently running in your toilet is unnatural and can be a very bothersome symptom requiring repair. A faulty flapper valve mainly causes a running toilet. A running toilet can boost your utility cost due to wasted water and cause other plumbing problems if mishandled.

You Have An Older Toilet

As your toilet ages, it becomes less efficient and more prone to plumbing problems and repairs, necessitating a toilet replacement. Purchasing a newer, more efficient toilet, such as a dual flush or low flush toilet, reduces water use, repair costs, and utility bills.
