While toilet repairs are important, there are several reasons why you may eventually need to either have a toilet installed or replaced. New construction, a remodeled bathroom, or a serious structural issue with an existing toilet are all reasons why a toilet installation or toilet replacement may be necessary.
If you need toilet installation in Seattle, Craftsman Plumbing is the first place to call. We have been installing, replacing, and repairing toilets for years. Count on our team to get the job done right.
When to Call Craftsman Plumbing
If your toilet is especially old or damaged, it may be time to consider a toilet replacement. A new toilet is a worthy investment, particularly when your old toilet has outlived its usefulness.
Depending on the type of toilet you’re replacing, you could see improved water use efficiency and superior comfort.
Your Toilet is Old
For many of us, it’s easy to think of a toilet as a permanent fixture in the home. It was probably there when you moved in, and you’ve had the same one ever since. However, if you’ve had that toilet for 25 years or more, it might be reaching the upper limits of its usefulness.
Older toilets are inefficient and tend to not flush as well as newer toilets. A newer toilet will use around 1.6 gallons of water per flush, while an old toilet might use as much as 5 gallons. Because of this, a new toilet can help you save on your water bill.
Your toilet’s tank is responsible for holding all the freshwater used to flush your toilet. If it becomes cracked or damaged, water can leak, and your toilet will not function at its best.
There are not any repairs that a plumber can perform when the tank’s porcelain cracks, to permanently fix the damage. The best solution is to give us a call for toilet installation service in Seattle, WA.
As with a cracked tank, a damaged toilet bowl can only be fixed temporarily with putties or sealants. Eventually, the damage will reveal itself again, and you’ll be dealing with a leak. That’s why we recommend a toilet replacement when your bowl is damaged. The best thing you can do is contact a plumbing professional. We’ll walk you through the toilet replacement process.
If your toilet is experiencing several recurring or especially severe leaks, something is likely very wrong with the fixture. We can repair most leaks, but a new toilet may be worth considering if the leaks continue despite repeated repairs.
Toilet Constantly Running
If your toilet is constantly running or sounds like it won’t stop flushing, call Craftsman Plumbing. Oftentimes, the constant running sound is due to a damaged flapper inside the tank. When the flapper becomes damaged, it can no longer hold back the water in the tank from draining into the bowl.
Usually, this is an easy fix, but there may be a more serious problem if the issues persists. If replacing the flapper doesn’t stop your toilet from constantly running, we may recommend a new toilet installation.
Clogging is normal when it happens on occasion. However, if you’re plunging your toilet just about every single day, then there is something very wrong. The first thing you need to do is make sure that nobody in your household is flushing anything they shouldn’t be. Then, make sure there isn’t an issue with your main sewer line. We can help with that too.
If there aren’t any issues with either of these things, and your toilet simply will not stop clogging, a new toilet might be your best option.
