Are you unsure if your toilet should be repaired or replaced?
There are many good reasons to do both. These are the facts you need to make the right choice.
Here are some reasons to replace your old toilet.
The old one flushes well and has never experienced any stoppages.
It still looks great.
It is comfortable for you. The seat height is just right.
It is cheaper to repair or rebuild than to buy a new one.
Cast iron drain pipes are installed in your house.
This is vital! Cast iron drain lines require 3-5 gallons of water to flush the waste out. An older toilet can provide this amount. The current regulations limit the amount of water that a toilet can flush to 1.28 Gallons per flush. This can lead to debris building up in cast iron drain pipes.
We’ve seen clients who had to replace entire drain systems or endure stoppage after stoppage due to stoppages caused by another company installing a low-flow toilet in a cast-iron drainage system.
If the toilet is beyond repair, a plumber will not recommend a replacement. However, they might recommend moving the toilets to other bathrooms to reduce future stoppages.

You want to conserve water.
Some cities offer rebates for toilet replacement. This can help offset the cost of repair or replacement.
You are looking for a taller toilet.
It is possible to spend more on a toilet rebuild than what it cost initially.
We aim to inform our clients about all variables that could impact their purchase, so they can make informed decisions and use their resources wisely.

Tank cleaners claim to simplify your chores and reduce cleaning costs, but in reality, they can make you miserable. These cleaners can cause premature failure of your toilets’ rubber seals. Instead, pour vinegar down the overflow tube. Vinegar is a natural deodorizer and can remove odors that could damage your toilet’s flow. It costs only a fraction.
