Common Problems with Toilets that Require Repair

Often, when a toilet decides that it doesn’t want to do its job properly, it is something that requires immediate attention. Although, toilet repair is not the most attractive job in the world, someone will need to do it at some point or another as issues will come up periodically.

The most common problems with toilets are a clogged toilet, leaking toilet or running toilet. Even if the symptoms of your toilet problem are only light, you should get someone in to repair your toilet as soon as possible because even a lightly running toilet will literally sends tons of money down the drain.

The problem of a clogged toilet or a toilet that inadequately flushes is a common problem faced by a qualified plumber. A clogged toilet may be able to be repaired simply by using a plunger; however, if this does not fix the problem then it may require the use of a plumbers snake. One of the most common causes of a clogged toilet is kids flushing things down the toilet that aren’t exactly meant to go down.

The hardest thing when it comes to toilet repair is identifying and repairing a leak in a toilet. Water on the floor around your toilet can be caused by a number of things from a damaged gasket to a toilet bowl assembly that has become jarred. If you find water on the floor around your toilet it is definitely time to call your plumber.

A running toilet can be the most expensive of the problems that can happen with your toilet, but thankfully it is often the easiest to fix. Such a problem can become expensive as litre after litre of water runs straight done the drain. When your toilet begins to run, it is most likely that something has broken the seal on the valve that lets water flow in to the bowl. The problem will usually be caused by a worn part such as a ball cock or chain. A plumber will be able to easily fix such a problem in a very short time frame.

If you are unsure on how to fix your toilet it is probably best that you call a professional to do the job for you. Have a chat with your plumber and he should be able to repair your toilet with ease. Also, be sure to give him/her a thorough description of the problem as this may help save them a trip down to the local hardware for spare parts. This could in turn save you a little bit of money for the service.
