Ragsdale van pulling up driveway


If you had to guess which plumbing fixture used the most water in your home, what would you say? Would you be surprised if it was the toilet?

Toilets account for around 30 percent of the average home's water usage, according to the EPA. The good news is that newer models use far less water than older ones. Toilets installed before the mid-1990s often use six or seven gallons per flush, considerably more water than the 1.6 gallons required by federal law. Many of today's low-flow toilets use 1.28 gallons per flush or even less. Depending on the age of your home's toilets and how they function, it might be time to replace them to lower your water bill.

Toilet repair and replacement does more than lower your home's water usage and water bill. It can also update the look of your bathroom. If you're considering a bathroom remodel, a new toilet is a must.

Some newer models of toilets are designed with comfort in mind. They feature seats that are 17 to 19 inches high, a few inches higher than the average toilet seat. The higher seat makes the toilet easier to sit down on and stand up from.

Water use, looks and comfort aren't the only reasons why you might want to update your toilets. A leaking toilet can spell trouble over time, by damaging the floor beneath it. If there's an issue with the seal or the positioning of the toilet, leaks can occur that cause considerable water damage.

Toilet repair can seem like a quick DIY job, but there's a lot that can go wrong if an inexperienced person tries to replace a toilet. For the sake of your home and your water bills, it's best to call in a highly trained, qualified plumber to do the job.
