Signs of a Clogged Toilet
You may be extremely careful about how much toilet paper you use, whether or not you flush feminine products (hint: don’t) and watch your children obsessively when they are in the bathroom. Unfortunately, toilets still will clog and sometimes there isn’t a plunger in the world that can help you. Often, before the clog gets to this point, there will be signs that a blockage is forming and needs to be removed. Some of these signs may include:
- Gurgling when you flush
- Bowls filling too much or too little
- A change in the way your toilet flushes–like having to hold the flusher handle down for a longer period of time, a different sound/pitch, feeling more or less resistance when flushing
- Constantly overflowing–while toilets will overflow from time to time, it should never be a regular occurrence
- Sewage backup or bubbling in the shower drain
Replacing a Toilet
Toilets aren’t meant to last forever. Although these porcelain bowls will last far longer than most appliances in your home, they will still need to be replaced after a certain number of years. If a toilet has not been moved and the seals are still intact, it can easily last for 30 or more years.
Unfortunately, this isn’t often the case, and even if it is, newer toilets are far more efficient which can save you a good bit of cash on your water bill! Many toilets that were made after 1994 are low-flow toilets, but as with all newer pieces of technology they had their kinks and problems. If your toilet was made in 1994 or right thereafter, it might be wise to replace it, even if there is no sign of underlying issues. Also, if your home is on the older side and you have never taken the time to have your toilets replaced, now may be the time to do so!
There are so many low-flow and highly-efficient options on the market that there is no reason to have toilet-related problems!
