Is it Time for a New Toilet?

The life expectancy of a toilet may vary, but eventually replacing your existing unit with a newer model may be the best decision. Maybe a pressure-assist, dual-flush or touch-free toilet is soon to reside in your home. How do you know when it is time for a new toilet?

Below are the most common signs that you may need to consider a replacement:

Constant Clogs

 

  • A toilet that constantly clogs may be an indication that a replacement may be in order. If you have an older, low-flush model that requires more than one flush and clogs frequently, it is a wise decision to upgrade.

 

Cracks

 

  • They are often difficult to spot, but cracks can often occur in the toilet bowl or in the tank. If a crack goes unnoticed for too long, a flood may ensue.

 

Repair too Costly

 

Stop throwing money down the drain and invest in a new toilet
Money Down the Drain
  • If the cost of the repair is close to the cost of a replacement, it is smarter to invest in a new model. If the toilet has been repaired multiple times, the unit may not be worth the cost of the service calls.

Even if your older model is still adequate, there are several compelling reasons to upgrade before it begins to break down…

A new toilet can save water

– Newer toilets, such as, low-flush toilets, dual-flush toilets, and vacuum-assist toilets use significantly less water per flush.

A new toilet is smarter

 

Touch free toilets reduce the spreading of germs in your bathroom

– Smart toilets have features to prevent flushing if the toilet is clogged, touch-free flushing options, bidet functions, heated seating and self-cleaning options.

A new toilet is more comfortable

– Many new toilets have higher bowl heights of 17-19 inches rather than the old standard 15 inches. The higher seat can be more comfortable for taller and older people. Also, elongated bowls which are 2 inches longer may offer more comfort as well.

I have used Zeek plumbing for over 15 years for all my plumbing needs. For my primary residence and rental properties. Most recently for a broken hot water heater, which they had replaced in the same day. Their fast, friendly and sense of humor is a pure pleasure to work with. On the rare occasion that they can't come on the day I call, I would prefer to wait for them as I know they will always do the job right! You would be lucky to have them in your home!

Big ups to Zeek Plumbing. Just had a terrific first class experience with one of Zeek’s highly knowledgeable and professional Tech’s Tim. I Was having issues with my hot water heater lighting. Tim quickly identified the problem and swiftly made the repairs, and all this on a late Saturday afternoon none the less. Other highly rated plumbing companies that advertise emergency 24 hour service wouldn’t even give me a call back, I would like to thank them for not returning my calls and sending my business to Zeek. I will be calling them for all future needs, Thanks!

I called Zeek plumbing because I had a drain pipe that froze for the second time in a year, causing my washer to overflow everywhere. They assured me they would get there as soon as possible and would take care of the problem. They didn’t lie! Within 2 hours of their arrival, they located the pipe and moved it so that it wouldn’t freeze again. They also called me back on a weekend to let me know they got my message and would schedule an appointment time first thing on a Monday when they were back in the office. Very communicative! I would definitely use Zeek plumbing again!

Tim did a good job fixing our small leak in the basement. He was professional, explained the process of the repair, and used a drop cloth! I particularly appreciate the company's followup; they called when they said they would and put us on the schedule right away even though our repair was small. They also explained pricing on the phone, which ended up exactly as explained. I would definitely recommend them.
