Ask a Portland Plumber: Is it Time for Toilet Replacement?
Toilet Upgrade Could Save You Money
We use our toilet bowls so frequently and yet rarely think about proper toilet maintenance or what to do if something isn’t working as it should. Slow drains and clogs are not only frustrating and inconvenient, but can also be unsanitary, or the sign of a larger plumbing problem.
The experts at 3 Mountains Plumbing have been repairing and installing toilet bowls at homes in the greater Portland area for over a decade. We know what to look for and are always happy to help with tough toilet repairs, but when we begin to see the same problems repeatedly, we know it’s time for a new toilet installation.
Yes, do it yourself plunging at home will often clear toilet drain clogs, but there are also a number of reasons to consider installing a brand new toilet.
First, let’s look at a few signs that it may be time for a new toilet installation in your Portland home:
- Frequent repairs
- Habitual clogs
- Persistently slow drainage
- Cracked pipes or porcelain
- Surface scratches
How Can Purchasing a New Toilet Save Me Money?
A new toilet will work more efficiently using less water to accomplish its task. For the ultimate in water conservation, we highly recommend having a 1.28 gallon toilet bowl installed. The 1.28 gallon bowls are the most environmentally friendly and efficient on the market. There’s no need for toilet water to fill back up to the rim between flushes so make sure your bowl isn’t wasting water. Less water usage is certainly better for the environment, but also better for your wallet.
At 3 Mountains Plumbing, we highly recommend Toto UltraMax toilet bowls. Another great buy, although not quite as powerful, is the American Standard Cadet Pro toilet. Both are in stock and ready for delivery and installation by a trained journeyman plumber.
