Should I Fix or Replace My Toilet?

Nobody wants to deal with a plumbing issue, even when it involves the fixtures connected to the pipes. Your toilet serves as a vital fixture in your home, and the thought of something going wrong can be burdensome to endure.

When you have an issue with your toilet, you must decide: to fix or replace. It’s not an easy decision when you factor in the potential costs, but it’s one that you should make with a clear understanding of the problems that may arise. If you encounter any of these problems, we’ll provide the right solution:

Your Toilet Tilts or Wobbles

Solution: Fix

A tilt or wobble may not be as big a problem as it seems. You may have issues with your tile or the caulking on your toilet. A professional can come in and fix the issue with very little effort, and it’ll be as though your toilet is brand new.

Your Toilet Has a Crack in the Tank or Bowl

Solution: Replace

The tank and bowl are where the water is stored in the toilet. Any crack can result in severe leaking and make the toilet nearly impossible to use. While there may be small fixes, the best option is to replace your toilet, so you don’t encounter the problem again in the future.

Your Toilet Clogs Frequently

Solution: It depends

A toilet that clogs frequently doesn’t always mean the toilet is bad. The problem can start with the pipes, in which case you can fix the issue and move forward. However, if your toilet is not flowing correctly and you determine it is the cause of the clog, you may need to replace it completely.
