3 Reasons to Replace your Toilet
1.Leaks: Leaks from either the toilet's tank or its bowl can go undetected for long periods of time, causing water damage to the flooring or subfloor. If allowed to continue, the entire floor may need to be replaced. Leaks can also cause damage to rooms below if the bathroom is upstairs.
Especially when dealing with older toilets, it may be more cost-effective to replace a toilet than find and repair leaks. Leaks not only cause damage but also consume water, which may increase your utility bill.
2. Poor water-use efficiency: If you have an older toilet, just flushing it on regular basis may have a negative impact on your utility bill. With the average person flushing five times a day, toilets make up about 31% of overall household water consumption.Toilets manufactured before 1980 can use up to 7 gallons of water with each flush.
Modern toilets are required to use no more than 1.6 gallons per flush.
3. Appearance: Your toilet may not match your current color scheme or even have any resemblance to your sense of style or home decor. Toilets with colors like avocado green and coral pink toilets were once in vogue, but today may make your home's bathroom appear hopelessly outdated.
