Your toilet goes through gallons of water each day. While toilets have a long lifespan, you will eventually have to purchase a new one.

Replacing your old toilet with a new, efficient one can help reduce your toilet’s water usage by up to 60 percent and save you an average of $110 a year on your utility bills.

There are many choices for homeowners, like one or two piece toilets, round or elongated bowls, different heights, and many additional features, like heated seats or automatic lids.

Although an experienced "do-it-yourselfer" may be able to install a new toilet, most homeowners should hire a licensed plumber. A botched installation can result in slow leakage under the flooring, which wastes water and eventually rots under the floor. In addition, porcelain can be extremely heavy and easy to chip or crack.
