Clogged Toilet! Running Toilet! Leaking Toilet! Oh My!
No one would argue that a toilet is one of the greatest conveniences ever made, but what do you do when there is a problem? Whether you have a clogged toilet that will not flush, a running toilet that is constantly using water, or a toilet that is leaking water onto the floor no toilet problem is a good one to have. When you call us out to resolve the problem, we use the absolute best parts available to ensure that your toilet is not only fixed, but that it will operate its absolute best.
My Toilet wobbles and is loose to the floor.
In many cases a toilet will be loose and may even wobble. This can be very frustrating to the user and could ultimately cause the seal underneath the toilet to go bad and leak. In some cases the flange under the toilet is not bolted down and is loose, causing the toilet itself to become loose. In other cases the flange is not set at the proper elevation to the floor. This is typically the case on tiled floor. Whatever the cause we will inspect the seal for damage, replacing it if necessary. We also check to see if the flange is broken. If so, we replace it. Otherwise, we bolt it down and secure your toilet to the floor.
My Toilet Runs On And Off Day And Night
A constantly running toilet, or a toilet that runs on and off even when no one is in the bathroom, is more than just a spooky annoyance. The intermittent running sound is likely due to a tank leak, either because of a faulty or corroded flapper, a syphon problem, or some other source. Though the hundreds of gallons of water leaking out of your tank won’t be splashed across your tile floor, you’ll certainly see the effect on your water bill. Whatever the cause, we’ll find it and fix it promptly.
My Toilet Is Clogged Or Draining Slowly
If your toilet is flushing sluggishly, or if you hear a sucking or gurgling sound in the other drains of the bathroom when you flush your toilet, it’s likely that your toilet has a partial clog in the drain and/or vent pipes. It’s a sign that it’s time to call a plumber to take care of a small problem before it becomes a big one.
A toilet can clog for a lot of reasons. Maybe someone in the household has been flushing items that don’t dissolve easily. Perhaps a curious toddler decided to give one of his toy superhero figurines a good bath. Maybe the clog is not a sudden event, but rather an accumulation of material over time, especially in the area of the curved trap. If a simple plunger doesn’t work to clear the problem, our plumbers can isolate the clog, remove it, and flush out the pipes so your toilet can function well again.
My Basement Toilet Is Overflowing!
There may be no more sudden and upsetting household catastrophe than a basement toilet that has become a source of volcanic sewage. Any clog in the underground pipes leading out to the municipal sewage system will cause your home’s outflow to back up to the nearest outlet, which is often a basement toilet. Tree roots and debris have likely entered the underground pipes and formed a barrier. They’ll need to be cleared away so that wastewater can move unimpeded through them once again.
The benefits of a Low Flow Toilet
You may decide it is time to replace your toilet entirely. This could be for a number of reasons. Perhaps your toilet is cracked or maybe it is just outdated and you would like a new one. Today’s low flow toilets use a significantly reduced amount of water than they used to. The most obvious benefit is that, with a low flow toilet, you will use less water. Less water used means a lower water bill. In addition to a lower water bill, a tax credit is often available for anyone switching to a low flow toilet. Lastly, despite the low water usage, choosing the correct low flow toilet will mean having a toilet that functions better and does not need constant unstopping. But how do you know which toilet to choose?
When you hire us to provide and install your new low flow toilet, we come prepared with a Kohler toilet. Kohler toilets are fantastic toilets that have no difficulty doing their job. They will not need constant unstopping, nor will we be back anytime soon to work on your toilet as it is built with quality parts that will last a very long time. When they do need repairing down the road, as all toilets do, the repair is not as costly as on other toilets. Their parts are standard parts that are kept in stock at any local supply house, not uncommon parts which cost more and need to be ordered in as some toilet manufacturer parts are. A Kohler toilet will leave you satisfied today and years down the road.
A Toilet is designed to do one thing
