Common Toilet Repair Problems
- Leaking Toilet
A leaking toilet can be caused by a number of things, but all have the same result, a puddle of water around your toilet that could end up seeping underneath your tile. If that happens, mold could develop cost you a ton of money in cleaning and repairs.
- Clogged Toilets
Some clogs are too big for a plunger to handle. Clogs are usually the result of flushing too much down the toilet or flushing items that don’t belong in your toilet, such as wipes or sanitary items.
- Running Water
If you hear your toilet constantly running after you flush it, it’s almost surely broken. This issue is likely due to a broken or worn down part. It’s very important to get this issue fixed right away; otherwise, it will waste gallons of water and run up your utility bill.
- Weak Flushing
If your home or business has weak flushing, it’s likely because of hard water. The minerals in your water can block proper water-flow into your toilet.
- It’s Flushing on its Own
This means that your flapper in charge of regulating your unit’s flushing is worn out and needs to be replaced.
- Inconsistent Water Levels
Varying water levels are usually the result of a fill tube that has been damaged. Open up your toilet and inspect the tube to see if it’s been moved or damaged.
- Broken Handle
Unless you’re a handy person, this is a good instance when you should call our toilet repair experts because your handle needs to be replaced.
- Slow Filling of your Bowl
If your water-shutoff valve isn’t operating properly, then you might experience problems.
- Gurgle or Suction Sound from Unused Plumbing Appliances
If while you’re using your toilet, you hear a sound coming from another unused plumbing appliance, then either your toilet is clogged or your sewer line needs a cleaning.
