Signs You Need to Replace Your Toilet
A clogged toilet can cause a plumbing emergency in your house. To avoid getting a clogged toilet - and the water damage that can occur as a result - it’s important to replace your toilet before it totally malfunctions. Some signs that can indicate you need to install a new unit can include:
- If it’s older and nearing the end of its lifespan.
- If there are cracks in the porcelain unit. These might start out small but can eventually expand and cause major water damage.
- If it’s clogging more than it should be. This can be due to a design issue, especially if it’s an older unit.
- If it’s beginning to develop scratches. Dirt may start to cling to these and make the stains more visible.
- If your utility bills are starting to rise. This can happen if you have an older unit that uses more water than newer models.
What to Expect During a Water Heater Tune-Up
It’s recommended you schedule regular maintenance on your water heater to keep it functioning as expected. During a tune-up you can expect a plumber to perform these tasks:
- Drain the basin and remove any buildup in it.
- Check the inside and outside of the unit to look for cracks or signs of wear and tear.
- Examine the hose for cracks or other damage.
- Change the filters when needed.
- Check the unit to ensure it is operating as expected.
