Is Your Toilet Running? You May Need a Replacement

Is your toilet running? Well, then you better go catch it!

Okay, okay, we joke, but the fact remains that a running toilet may be a sign of several home plumbing issues. We use our residential toilets multiple times every day. At 3 Mountains Plumbing, we understand that you may not spend a great deal of time thinking (or wanting to think) about how much your household toilet or toilets are in use, but the truth is that they quite naturally suffer a great deal of wear and tear over time.

Running toilets are easy enough to repair, but if it’s happening frequently, it’s most likely time for a new toilet installation.

Our Portland Toilet Recommendations

Toilet upgrades are almost always a solid home investment decision. New toilets…

  • Conserve water
  • Reduce monthly utility bills
  • Improve the home’s sanitary environment
  • Work more efficiently
  • Environmentally friendly

At 3 Mountains Plumbing, our shelves are stocked and ready to go with the best of the best: Toto UltraMax and American Standard Cadet Pro toilet bowls. We suggest going with 1.28-gallon bowls which tend to conserve the most water.

Other Common Toilet Problems

In addition to the persistently antagonizing sound of a running toilet, other very common home toilet-related problems may indicate it’s time for an upgrade. Watch out for the following signs and symptoms of a failing toilet:

  • Frequent clogs
  • Slow drainage
  • Surface scratches
  • Needing to consistently flush more than once to remove waste
  • Leaking water around the base of the toilet
  • Cracked pipes or porcelain
