If your home didn’t have a toilet in it, you would probably go crazy. The inconvenience of not being able to go to the bathroom in your own home is obvious whenever there are problems that cause you to go without running water for a longer period of time. While toilets have been around for a long time, for most of human history, indoor bathrooms weren’t a thing. To lessen the risk of a throwback to the not-so-good old days, you should keep an eye on your toilet and make sure that it is in good shape.
If you find cracks on the bowl or tank, this is a reason to get the toilet seat replaced. Cracks can’t be repaired, so buying a new seat is your only option.
Your toilet should also be stable, not rocking back and forth when sitting down on it. The rocking could lead to leaks and other problems.
