Toilets–we can’t live without them. It’s essential that as bathroom users, we make sure the place where we do our business is not only functional but comfortable and clean. Thinking of whether you should replace your toilet or not isn’t always an everyday thought (okay, it probably isn’t a thought in general), but sometimes it’s a necessity. Even if replacing your toilet isn’t an urgent matter, sometimes a new toilet can be the key to making your dream bathroom become a reality. Here are a few reasons why you should consider a toilet replacement.
1.There are stains that won’t come out, and/or damage that can’t be fixed.
If your toilet has visible stains or scratches that can’t be fixed with a good cleaning, you might want to consider getting a new toilet entirely. Stained or scratched toilets aren’t exactly visually appealing but they can also lead to bigger problems such as cracks. Cleaning your toilet frequently will help prevent long-term stains.
2.You want to upgrade the look of your bathroom.
Everybody needs an upgrade every once in a while, and sometimes an upgrade can be a brand new, crystal clean toilet. New toilets have the ability to last longer and work better than your previous one, as well as make your bathroom look way better than it did before. Newer toilets have eco flush technologies that use less water and can save you money!
3.It doesn’t work the way it’s supposed to.
Although this reason may seem obvious, it’s still important to understand what qualifies as a functioning toilet. A working toilet will always be able to flush efficiently, won’t clog up every time you use it, and it doesn’t have any visible cracks. Pay attention if your toilet is running a lot or has trouble flushing as these could be signs of a larger problem.
