Frequently Asked Questions About Toilets
I'd love a dual-flush toilet. Can my current one be retrofitted to operate that way, or does it require a replacement?
Many toilets can be converted to dual-flush with relatively simple modifications, but understand that there are some caveats. Toilets of certain sizes, designs, etc., may not function correctly if retrofitted in this way; toilets are designed with a certain flow rate, and you may be disappointed with the results of a dual-flush modification in some toilet designs. A professional can help you figure out whether yours is a good candidate — or suggest a replacement if necessary.
What's the final word on what can go down toilets?
To put it simply, there are only two things that should ever be going down your toilet: human waste and toilet paper. Nothing else should ever go down your toilet, no matter how much it insists it is flushable. This definitely includes supposedly flushable wet wipes, as these have shown in various tests to barely break down at all, much less break down to the same extent as toilet paper.
How long do most toilets last?
Barring anything unusual, you can expect a toilet to last for between 10 and 15 years before you start noticing more frequent clogs, cracks, unreliable flushing, etc. However, it’s not unheard of for a toilet to last decades without needing to be replaced if you’re lucky with quality, repairs, etc. Of course, older toilets may have other problems that would encourage you to replace them even if they still function correctly.
Is it worth upgrading my toilet if it’s still in good condition?
It depends on how old your toilet is, its features, and what it looks like. You might upgrade simply for the aesthetics of a certain toilet you like, or you might decide you want a larger or a lower seat or built-in dual-flush. Old toilets tend to use a shocking amount of water compared to modern, efficient designs; a modern high-power, low-efficiency toilet might still use a tiny fraction of what a standard toilet from 20 years ago might have used.
