Common Reasons Toilets Break
Toilets can break for any number of reasons. Porcelain tanks can develop cracks following impacts or repeated exposure to hot/cold water. Tools used to service or repair the toilet can damage the toilet. Metal components within the tank can rust, and plastic components can break. Rubber seals can dry out and leak. Bolts connecting the toilet can loosen and cause the toilet to rock. In fact, there is no shortage of reasons that toilets can break and require repair or replacement.

How to Know When it’s Time to Repair vs. Replace
An occasional toilet repair is normal; when you require an increasing number of repairs, it may be time to consider replacing your old toilet. Common signs that your toilet needs replaced include cracks in the porcelain or scratches that are impossible to keep clean. These will worsen over time and can cause leaks and bacterial growth that can damage your bathroom.
If you are experiencing minor toilet issues that are easily repaired, it is likely that your toilet is just getting older. However, if the frequency of repairs is speeding up, replacing your toilet with a newer, more ecologically friendly option could also be a more cost-effective decision.
FAQs About Toilets
How long does it take to replace a toilet?
Most toilets can be replaced in four to six hours. The duration depends on whether or not any additional preparation or repairs are required before the replacement can begin.
Can I replace my own toilet?
Replacing a toilet is something we recommend you allow a certified plumber to perform. While you can do it, there are many tasks that go into a replacement, and if any of these are not performed perfectly, you could end up with a malfunctioning, leaking toilet that damages your bathroom.
Why won’t my toilet stop running?
Most continuous flow problems are caused by a damaged or miscalibrated float (a piece inside the tank). Sometimes it is because the flapper is leaking and needs to be replaced, or it could be because the refill tube needs to be shortened.
