The toilet is a staple in the bathroom. Toilets are fairly easy to maintain but can become faulty and fragile over time. If you have a very old toilet, chances are it isn’t as beautiful as your toilet was when it was brand new. Getting a new toilet can instantly upgrade your home and make it look and feel more luxurious and expensive, especially if you decide to replace your old boring toilet with a new and improved one. If you do decide to replace your toilet, make sure the person installing it is a professional, and experienced plumber. Toilet installation is a complex and intricate task that must be done by someone who knows what they’re doing to ensure a high-quality installation.
There are many different reasons why you may want to replace your toilet, one of them being the fact that your toilet is most likely a basic toilet, which flushes, and does nothing else. New technology has made it possible for you to have a toilet that does more than flush. You may want to go with a more esthetically pleasing look and feel. If so, you can simply install a stone toilet or something that looks similar. You can also go for a more technologically advanced toilet by installing a bidet. This will definitely raise the value of the home, while also giving you an opportunity of living in a home, you would want to buy.

The pipes in your home may not need major work. It all really depends on when the house was built and what kind of pipe material was used? Older homes will need a lot more pipework than newer ones. If you’re not sure what your pipes system is made up of or how old it is, call your local, trusted professional, to help you make the proper assessment.
PVC or Polyvinyl Chloride piping is one of the most common and modern piping used today. This type of piping is easy to use, cheap, and lasts a very long time. In fact, researchers are unsure of how long this type of material can last. The common conclusion, for now at least, is that it will last indefinitely. This product is similar to plastic in the way it rarely, if ever, degrades. This is a wonderful feature of most new homes. The only issue with this kind of pipe material is its weak joints. If the home has been in use for some time, you can definitely expect some of the joints to become loose from time to time. If it does, call an emergency plumber to reattach them right away. The longer you wait the more damage may occur to your property.
Copper and Iron Piping
Copper and Iron piping were commonly used before the invention of other materials. This type of piping may be found in older homes. Copper piping is still used today and is considered to be especially valuable. Copper piping is sturdy and worthy of installing, however, being that copper is a material from the earth, it is bound to become earth again. Over the years copper piping will tend to rust and erode, this will force you to have to replace it within 70 to 100 years or so. You may rest assured knowing that it will be the other homeowners problem at that point.
Iron piping is similar to copper in that it will eventually become old, erode, and rust. Iron piping was once used in all areas of the plumbing system, but due to its tendency to become eroded and rust, iron piping was only used for the waste drains. If your home still has iron piping, it has most likely become eroded and rusted. If the iron piping is in your water supply system, you will need a plumber to replace them immediately. If not, have your plumber replace it in small sections, to avoid having to replace it all at once.
