If you are like most people, you probably never give your toilet a second thought as long as it works. If it doesn’t work however, it can get aggravating really fast.
Once you find yourself with a leaky toilet or worse, a money flushing toilet (think lots of water used to do the job), then it may be time to think about a replacement. You might be surprised at the flushing power and water efficiency of today’s modern toilets. For $100-150, you can install a new toilet that flushes quickly and with very little water….think 1.4 gallons! Your water bill will thank you! I know, I know, it’s a dirty job, but someone has to do it. Unless you want to pay a plumber, the good news is that it is fairly easy and quick as a do-it-yourself project.
What you’ll need: New toilet, new flanged wax ring with adjustable height bolts, plumbers tape, wrench and pliers, plastic putty knife, level, shims and caulk
