The toilet clogs too much – If you avoid flushing anything other than toilet paper down the drain, then you shouldn’t have to worry about your toilet clogging on a regular basis. If, however, you have to plunge your toilet more than once a week, there may be a blockage in that toilet’s trap, drainpipe, or even further down the sewer line. Our team can fix you clogged toilet for good with the help our our augurs, hydro-jets, and other drain cleaning equipment.
The toilet is always running – If you’re constantly hearing the sound of your toilet running when you pass by your bathroom, there’s a good chance you’ll need a new flapper. If that doesn’t do the trick, there may be reason to look into installing a new toilet. Remember, only a trained plumber can accurately inspect and diagnose your toilet’s problem.
The toilet is leaking – Have you noticed the floor around the base of your toilet getting wet after you flush? This is likely a lapse in your toilet’s wax seal. If you’re a savvy DIYer, there’s a chance that you can handle a repair like this yourself. Do understand though, replacing the wax ring under a toilet can be a mucky job that needs to be done right. It involves removing your toilet then reinstalling it once the seal is in place. If you notice leaks coming from areas beyond the base, look for cracks and call a local plumber immediately because you might need a toilet replacement.
Yes, there can be other warning signs that your toilet has a problem, such as rust stains from corrosion, the tank or bowl not filling, and problems flushing, but the three we outlined above are by far the most common repair calls we receive. Don’t let a faulty toilet ruin your day. Schedule an appointment with an expert from Smart Choice Plumbing immediately and we’ll diagnose your situation and fix your problem, whatever it may be.
