If the problem with your toilet is a cracked tank or bowl, there is no way to repair it and it will need to be replaced. Most other toilet problems can be fixed.
Believe it or not, a porcelain toilet can last 50 years! That said, you might want to replace it sooner to upgrade to a model that uses less water or matches your bathroom decor.
Toilets that won’t stop running are a common problem usually caused by either an overflowing tank or because water is dripping through a damaged flapper into the bowl.
If your toilet used to flush well but isn’t anymore, it’s likely that the waste pipe, siphon jet, or rim jets are clogged or that the water level in the bowl or tank is low. If your toilet has never had a proper flush, you could have a first-generation water-saving toilet. Newer water-saving models function much better, so it might be time to consider replacing it.
If the tank or bowl is cracked, it will need to be replaced. In most other circumstances, a skilled plumber will be able to repair your toilet. Toilets have a longer lifespan than most other household fixtures, so even if yours is decades old, it still has the potential to last many more years.
It usually takes an experienced plumber about 30 minutes to replace a toilet flapper.
When the water in your toilet is running non-stop, it flushes on its own, or it takes too long to fill, it’s a sign that the flapper needs to be replaced.
If you cannot unclog your toilet using a plunger, you can wait a bit and then try again. If you’re still unable to dislodge the clog, you should call a plumber for emergency toilet repair service.
It usually takes about two to three hours for a plumber to replace a toilet.
