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 bowl or in the tank. If a crack goes unnoticed for too long, a flood may ensue.

 

Repair too Costly

  • 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

– Smart toilets have features to prevent flushing if it 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.

Our licensed plumbers would be happy to assess your situation and give you options for repair and/or replacement. Contact Zeek Plumbing to schedule an appointment. You can also follow us on Facebook!

5-STAR GOOGLE REVIEWS FROM OUR CUSTOMERS

I had a leak from my upstairs bathroom which was coming from an old 3” copper drain pipe connected to the toilet. Tim from Zeek Plumbing replaced the 3’ section of drain pipe with plastic and braced the new pipe to make sure it remained sloped in the right direction. Tim also reinforced the flooring under the toilet which had weakened over the years, and now the support is very strong. Tim was very professional and most importantly wanted to make sure the job was done right!

Purchased a new natural gas grill and needed it to be hooked up to the gas line. Called Zeek in the morning and they came and hooked it up the same day! They were extremely professional. I would highly recommend Zeek Plumbing and will definitely use them in the future should the need arise.

We used Zeek a few weeks ago for a clogged pipe. At that time we noticed a leak in our septic pipe in the basement. So we asked them to give us a price to replace the pipe. The price sound reasonable so we set it up for them to come back. Tim, Rj and Rich where here 8:00am sharp and went right to work. We where only without toilets for a few hours. They did a amazing job and where finished by 3 pm. All 3 guys are extremely professional and and very friendly. They work well together and all enjoy what they are doMy wife and I would highly recommend them.

It didn’t take them long and where right on time. The two guys where professional and got right to the problem. We need a few other things done so we will be calling them again.

Super Bowl Sunday morning, Zeek Plumbing didn't hesitate to respond when we called them for assistance. Our bathroom backed up and flooded our basement causing us to make an emergency request to them. They were at our home immediately and saved the day!

These guys were fantastic. Friendly, knowledgeable and very accommodating. They came to fix one problem and wound up fixing three. Price was extremely fair as well. I would recommend Zeke 100%
