Consistent running is not the only issue that can affect your toilet’s functionality. Other issues include, but are not limited to, frequent clogging, leaks, rusted or broken innards, or the toilet simply won’t flush. If you are experiencing any of these issues, it may be time to call Platinum Plumbing to fix or replace your toilet. Here are some things to look out for when deciding if it’s time to repair or replace your toilet:

The Toilet is Running Consistently

If you can hear your water running through your toilet when the tank should have been filled, you’ll likely need to have it repaired. Otherwise you may be facing exorbitant water bills and future problems.

The Toilet Won’t Flush

This could be caused by clogs, lack of water in the tank, a faulty flapper, or a broken lift chain. Best not to try to diagnose the problem yourself. Call a trusted professional at Platinum Plumbing.

Low Water Level

Your water level should always remain consistent whether it is in the tank or the bowl. Low water levels in either or both areas could be a sign of major problems, especially if it is accompanied by water on the sides or your toilet or on the floor.

Toilet Replacement

Constant RepairsCustomer Satisfaction is important to us, and we don’t want to continue to charge our customers for repairs when a replacement is the best option. Toilets can be costly, but we will let you know if replacement will be more cost efficient in the long run.

Clogs are a Constant ProblemAll toilets experience issues with clogs, but if you are using a plunger more often than not, it might be time to replace the toilet. We would eliminate other possible issues, like snaking your sewage line, before determining if a new toilet is necessary.


Clogs do not always indicate an issue with the toilet. Check out these easy tips to avoid clogs.

Never flush diapers or wipes, even if the wipes claim to be flushable.


Make sure your toilet paper wads are a reasonable size. Flush periodically if large amounts of paper seem to be necessary.

Porcelain Cracks or Scratches: Superficial scratches may seem like normal wear and tear, but they could actually be indicative of a larger problem. Scratches and cracks can expand into leaks or water damage.


Hygienically, dirt and bacteria can get into scratches and cracks, which makes it impossible for your bathroom to ever be totally clean. They also make your toilet appear dingy and dirty.
