Toilet Repair FAQs
How do I know whether to repair or replace my toilet?
You should decide whether to repair or replace your toilet based on how old it is, whether it has damage that will only get worse like cracks, whether you want an upgrade for aesthetics, features, or water efficiency, and simply how expensive the repair would be compared to upgrading.
How long does a toilet usually last?
A toilet can be expected to last on average between ten and fifteen years, though of course, some models last longer than that without incident and some fail very early in their lifespans. By the time your toilet gets older, you’ll have more frequent minor issues and might need repairs from a plumber more frequently even if nothing is overtly damaged. You may also find that an older toilet is using far too much water if it predates major improvements in water efficiency seen in most modern toilets.
How long will it take to repair or replace my toilet?
It depends on a number of factors. If your toilet is the only problem, and it simply needs to be swapped out or repaired, it can be a job that takes an hour or less. But if there is adjacent plumbing to be worked on, your toilet isn’t easily accessible, etc., it can take much longer. If you want a particular replacement toilet you’ll need to wait for, or need a rarer component we don’t have at hand, that could also add time.
Can I just repair my toilet myself?
Plumbing is a risky subject for DIY because even a small issue can lead to water damage that can cost you thousands or tens of thousands of dollars, to say nothing of the potential health risks of a poorly installed toilet, should sewer gases leak into your home. There are some minor issues you can resolve with a a little guidance, like a running toilet, though you may not be able to resolve the underlying cause without the help of a professional.
