According to Prof. Google you will spend about three years of your life on the toilet. If you are like most of us, this time is usually spent in a higher order of thought, a chance to reflect on our lives and very existence. Surely you can spare just a few of those moments to look downward and make a quick check of the modern marvel that makes it all possible.
What we are looking for here are signs of leakage. While some of these issues may be obvious, others require just a bit of detective work. Even the smallest water loss can add up up quickly, giving you a double pain in the wallet. The water itself is not free, and repairs associated with moisture damage can be costly! Add to that the fact that moisture can contribute to conditions perfect for fungal growth, including mold, and you probably don't need too much more convincing that this is serious stuff. So, what do we look for?
These quick checks will give you a good idea of whether or not you have any toilet issues. Pretty simple, really. A few minutes spent getting to know your toilet could save you money and heartache down the road, leaving your mind free to engage in more fulfilling bathroom reflection.
