Signs You Need a New Toilet

Toilets are one of the most frequently used appliances in your home, they use the most amount of water, and we spend nearly three years of our lives on them. Don’t we deserve the best? The answer to that question is yes, we do. Keep reading to discover when and why you should replace your toilet.

Frequent Repairs

If most of your weekend is spent fixing one of the toilets in your home, or you constantly have to bring out the plunger just so your toilet will work, then you should consider switching to a new high-efficiency toilet.

Switching out your old fixture will save your guests from embarrassment when they inevitably clog your toilet, so do them a favor, and make the change.

Cracked Porcelain

What seems like a small crack at the time, can turn into a flood of water, and it will usually happen at the worst possible time like during your Christmas party or when there are 30 children at your house for your kids birthday party. Save yourself a headache and the costs of repairs and make the switch now.

High Water Bills

The older your toilet is, the more water it uses per flush. Some toilets use nearly 7 gallons of water per flush, which is equal to about 13,000 gallons of water per person (in your household) per year. In comparison, the most efficient toilets only use 1.28 gallons per flush, which is equal to 2,400 gallons of water per person (in your household) per year; that’s a significant difference.

While your toilet isn't the only contributor to your water bill, it is the highest contributor in your household making up nearly 24% of your home’s water usage.
