What Plumbing Issues Indicate The Need For Toilet Replacement?

Ocala plumbers with Sunshine Plumbing and Gas can provide toilet replacements and installations for residences, businesses, new constructions and remodeling projects. Common signs that indicate a need for toilet replacement include the following plumbing issues.

Remodeling Your Bathroom

Even if a toilet is not broken, you may want to replace it for other reasons. To increase the effficienty of your toilet or improve the look of your bathroom, a new toilet can have a large impact. If you are remodeling a bathroom, call an experienced local plumber from Sunshine Plumbing & Gas to ensure every new plumbing fixture and system component functions optimally by the end of the project.


A wobbly toilet may be the result of loose bolts, which can be easily tightened by a plumber. But a loose toilet can also be a sign of a bigger problem, such as rotting or water-damaged floors. As a general guideline, if your toilet wobbles because of too much wear and tear, corrosion or other damage, consider replacing it.

Continual Clogging

Although blockages are not uncommon for toilets, perpetual clogs in the toilet may be symptomatic of a greater issue with the plumbing. If your toilet experiences clogs weekly — ruling out flushing non-flushable items and sewer line issues as causes — the toilet should be replaced. Many toilets made before 1994 use more than 3 gallons of water per flush. In 1994, the efficiency standard changed to 1.6 gallons per flush. Even some first-generation low-flush toilets lack the pressure necessary to clear their trap and drain. Substituting an outdated model with a newer low-flush toilet can rid you of the clog problem.

Cracks & Leaks

If you notice puddles of water around the toilet, check for cracks in the porcelain. When the puddles are there but cracks are not visible, other ways to check for leaks are to listen for sounds of water running constantly or to put a few drops of dye in the tank or bowl and see if the dye makes it to the floor. Cracks in the tank or bowl is a sign that you may a toilet replacement. Even if your old toilet still functions, plumbing and water leaks can waste a lot of water, damage floors, and result in mold growth.
