1. The Toilet Won’t Stop Running
Running toilets waste a lot of water, and a damaged fill valve is among the most common reasons for wasted water. This component is designed to ensure the water in the tank refills after every flush. If it becomes damaged, water may fill the upper tank more slowly or not at all.
The root cause of your problem is instead fa damaged flush valve, which directs stored water from the tank into the toilet bowl after each flush. When damaged, water may continuously flow into the toilet bowl. If left alone, you’re constantly wasting water. Our experienced plumbers can quickly replace broken flush valves with a new replacement.
2. The Toilet Can’t Flush
If a toilet isn’t flushing all the way, experienced plumbers will help figure out why. A loose or damaged flush handle–also known as a flapper–may be the culprit Your plumber should first check the chain connecting the handle to the fill valve system for damage. We’ll also look at the nuts inside the tank if they’ve come loose and need tightening.
3. The Toilet Is Leaking
Leaking is a particularly common problem in plumbing. Toilets may leak in several places, but the easiest leaks to find are usually close to the water supply lines and near the bottom of the toilet. Occasionally you’ll notice dripping sounds from the top tank, meaning water is flowing elsewhere. And when the toilet’s bottom won’t stop leaking, the wax ring sealing the toilet to your bathroom floor could be why. When parts like the wax ring or toilet flange are damaged, water is more likely to pool around the toilet’s base.
4. The Toilet Is Clogged
Like stubborn leaks, clogs are another concern everyone experiences at some point or another. Smaller clogs can be cleared up when you have a plunger on hand, but others could be deeper in the plumbing. To properly resolve them and check for water damage, it’s better to work with a professional plumber who is able to recognize telltale signs.
