Is Your Older Toilet Done for?

Monday, January 8th, 2018

Not only do they stop working so well after a couple of decades—they can also become outdated.

Sinks become discolored or may start to feel too small. Faucets develop leaks and may not offer all the features you want. It can be easy to decide when to replace these fixtures, but how can you tell when your toilet needs replacement? This may seem like a more difficult decision, but we’re here to help.

How to Tell If Your Toilet Is Leaking

Last week, we talked about the importance of having your toilet professionally repaired if you notice a leak.
