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

- 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
