Toilet Repair & Replacement

Your toilet is one of the most used fixtures in your home or business. A properly functioning toilet can account for more than 25 percent of your annual water usage. If your toilet isn’t working properly that can increase from a few gallons of water per day to over 100 gallons.

Potential Toilet Problems

Keep an eye out for these signs of potential issues:

  • Constantly running water.
  • The need to shake the handle to stop the toilet from running.
  • The need to flush multiple times to clear waste from the bowl.
  • Recurring clogs.
  • Visible water on any part of the toilet or standing in the floor around the toilet.
  • Cracks in the bowl or tank.
  • Permanent ring in the bowl that cannot be scrubbed clean.

Repair or Replace Your Toilet?

As a general rule of thumb, the average life expectancy of a toilet is about 10 -15 years. However, the working parts of the toilet may need to be replaced sooner due to wear and tear.  If the toilet is structurally sound, but you’re having problems with recurring clogs, slow or inefficient flushing, or constantly running water, then you may only need to have your toilet repaired.

However, if your toilet is nearing the 10-year mark, has visible cracks or cosmetic blemishes, then it could be time to consider replacing it. Not only will you solve existing problems, but you’ll also probably be able to save a considerable amount of money on your water bill.  Toilets built before 1994 use an average of 3-5 gallons per flush, where today’s high-efficiency models use .8 to 1.6 gallons to efficiently clear away waste.

Teach My People serves over 100 students on a daily basis, so one can imagine the maintenance needs on our building. DS Plumbing has gone above and beyond our expectations every time! They are respectable, trustworthy, efficient, and ensure that the task at hand is done with the utmost quality and care. Recently, we were most impressed with their genuine servant’s heart for our community. DS Plumbing & Air heard of a community work project that was in great need with little time. They quickly agreed to help, and within three days they had donated time, resources, labor and expertise to help renovate an entire plumbing system for a local home. Teach My People is grateful and blessed for the attention and care that DS invests in their clients and our community!” –- Jessica, Teach My People
