Most of us already own a toilet and you may well know that if you own a toilet you're bound to have some problems from time to time. Just like everything else in life, toilets wear out and need repair or in some cases replacement.
If your toilet is more than 10 to 12 years old I would highly recommend replacing it all together. The average life span for any toilet is about ten years, so after that just throw it out and get another, they are relatively cheap depending on the brand and style you decide to purchase.
If your toilet is less than ten years old or in relatively good shape it may be repairable. Most people shutter at the thought of toilet repair or anything to do with plumbing for that matter. The fact is, repairing a toilet is pretty easy, most parts are easily accessible and in many cases you can determine what parts are causing the problems.
Should you have more problems than you can handle, try looking online or asking someone more experienced with plumbing to help.
