When it comes to plumbing, only a few things are more integral than a toilet. While a new toilet installation may not be the most glamorous of home improvement projects, it is certainly one of the most important. A properly functioning toilet is essential for comfort and sanitation, and a new toilet can make a big difference in your daily life.
At Plumbwell Plumbing, we are passionate about providing top-quality plumbing services to the people and businesses of Sydney. We understand that installing a new toilet can be a big job, so we work hard to make the process as smooth and stress-free as possible for our customers.
What The Client Was After
The client had recently purchased a new property and had noticed that the toilet cistern had a small fracture that quickly turned into a crack and made the toilet unable to be used. The client needed a quality, cost-effective solution to supply and install a new toilet.
What Work Was Completed
We had to carefully remove the old toilet, which was a delicate operation because the toilet was bedded with sand and cement. We also had to ensure we kept the existing tiles in good condition – which meant we had to use all our tools with precision and care. Once removed, we adjusted the plumbing to suit the new toilet and then installed the toilet.
Signs You Need a New Toilet Installation
Whether you’re dealing with a constantly running toilet, a clogged toilet, or just an overall old and worn-out commode, it might be time for a new toilet installation. Here are signs you should call in the pros for a new toilet installation!
Your Toilet Regularly Clogs or Overflows
If you are frequently reaching for the plunger, it is best to get a new toilet. This is a sure sign that your toilet is not flushing properly, a problem that can cause discomfort in your home. A blocked toilet can quickly lead to a messy bathroom, and an overflowing toilet can cause serious water damage. If your toilet is regularly experiencing these problems, and nothing seems to be working, our Sydney-based plumbers can assess the situation and determine whether a new toilet is necessary.
If your toilet is no longer flushing like it used to, it may be time for a new installation. Several factors, including sediment build-up in the pipes or aged toilets, can cause ineffective flushing. If your toilet is constantly clogged, requires multiple flushes to empty, or leaves behind waste after each flush, it’s definitely time for a new one. An inefficient toilet is frustrating to use and can also waste a lot of water. A new toilet installation will not only save you money on your water bill, but it will also help you avoid any embarrassing situations. So, if your toilet is giving you trouble, don’t wait any longer – call Plumbwell Plumbing today!
The Toilet Never Stops Running
Almost everyone has experienced the frustration of a running toilet. The tell-tale sound of water endlessly flowing can drive even the most patient person up the wall. While it may seem like a minor nuisance, a running toilet can actually be a sign of a serious problem. A faulty flapper valve usually causes a running toilet. This small component is responsible for sealing the tank after each flush; over time, it can wear out or become misaligned. A faulty flapper valve can quickly lead to wasted water and sky-high water bills if left unchecked.
In some cases, it may even damage the toilet itself. If your toilet continues to run after multiple attempts at repairs, consider a new toilet installation.
Built-Up Mineral Deposits
If you’ve noticed mineral deposits building up on your toilet bowl or tank, it’s a sign that it’s time for a new toilet installation. Over time, the minerals in your water can slowly erode the porcelain, causing chips, cracks, and stains. In addition, the build-up of minerals can also cause your toilet to become less efficient, leading to higher water bills. If you’re concerned about the condition of your toilet, it’s best to call our dedicated, Sydney-based plumbers to assess the situation and recommend the best course of action. With a new toilet installation, you’ll be able to enjoy clean, fresh porcelain and peace of mind knowing that your toilet is running efficiently.
There are Cracks in Your Tank
Whether you just moved into a new home or your current toilet is decades old, it’s important to be aware of the signs that indicate its time for a new toilet installation. One of the most obvious indications that your toilet needs to be replaced is if there are cracks in the tank. While these cracks may not seem like a big deal at first, they can quickly lead to leaks, which can cause significant water damage to your bathroom and home. In addition, cracks in the tank can weaken your toilet’s structure, making it more likely to tip over or break. If you notice any cracks in your toilet tank, it’s important to contact Sydney’s Leading Plumbing Specialists as soon as possible to discuss your options for a new toilet installation.
Age of Your Toilet
Is your toilet more than 20 years old? If so, it might be time for a new toilet installation. While many people believe that toilets are built to last a lifetime, the truth is that they have a limited lifespan. Over time, the porcelain can become stained and cracked, the bowl can become misshapen, and the flushing mechanism can break down. As a result, an old toilet can be both unsightly and unreliable. If your toilet is showing its age, it’s important to consider replacing it with a new model. Not only will this improve the appearance of your bathroom, but it will also increase your comfort level and convenience.
The End Result
At the end of the day, all you want is a working toilet. You don’t want to spend hours scrolling through Google, trying to figure out how to fix it yourself. You don’t want to wait days for a plumber to show up. You just want it fixed, and you want it fixed now. The client was able to use the toilet within 24hrs of it being damaged.
