A good toilet is built to last, but nothing lasts forever. Eventually, toilet components break down. Leaks, clogs, and even more serious issues can impact the effectiveness of the toilet.
When a toilet fails you, nothing can derail the function of a house more quickly. Toilets are the single largest source of water use in most homes, so a toilet malfunction can be costly. A leaky toilet can result in massive utility bills. Getting it fixed now is probably the most economical solution.
