Toilet Repair

Toilet is one of the most essential parts of a house the value of which is felt only when something is wrong with it. Imagine the inconvenience a leaky toilet could cause if not checked or the scare a ghost flush could give in the middle of the night. Some of these problems can be averted with a proper check and maintenance while some are inevitable. You can tackle some of these issues on your own but for others a professional plumber is your safest bet.

Some Parts of a toilet and their Uses

  • Flapper/Tank Ball controls the amount of water released to the bowl.
  • Float Ball signifies the supply when the tank is full.
  • Flush Handle is the outer part of the toilet that you press and hold to flush.
  • Ballcock/Fill Valve opens the toilet for water to fill the tank
  • Toilet Tank is where most of the other parts are located. It holds water until you flush.
  • Wax Ring serves as a seal for your toilet.

Common Problems Found in a Toilet

  1. Clogging

This gives most toilet owners headaches. Clogging can be as simple as a shallow clog or as complicated as a deep clog. When you have a shallow clog, all you need is a plunger to clear the drain. If your toilet is still blocked, use a toilet auger. For a deep clog, contact a professional repairer.

  1. Ghost or Phantom flush

A situation where your toilet occasionally flushes itself without you pressing the handle is a phantom flush. This may be due to a high water level, which could be because of a worn flapper. To adjust or replace a damaged flapper, drain the tank by holding the toilet handle or turning off the water supply to the tank.

  1. Leaky Wax Seal

The water coming out from the bottom of your toilet bowl can create a puddle on your floor if not checked. It may be because of the wax rings seals located at the base of the toilet. You can replace the seals by removing the toilet or call an expert.

  1. Loose flush handle

When your flush handle is loose, it can be caused by a problem with the mounting nut or chain in the tank. Clean the mounting nut in the tank and tightening any loose nut or replace a broken chain. Call a professional plumber if the problem persists.

There are varieties of issues that you may encounter with your toilet, most of which may seem daunting if you don’t know how to deal with them. This is why you need a plumber who is not only reliable, affordable and fast and but will also relate with you in a respectable manner.
