Signs Your Toilet Needs Repairs
You certainly don’t need us to tell you how important the toilet is in your household. It’s just about essential a plumbing fixture as there is! (Although you might be surprised to know just how much of your indoor water use is for the toilet: around 40% of the total.) When your toilet has repair issues, it’s vital that you contact only professional plumbers to fix it.
Unfortunately, people often don’t notice or ignore the signs that something is wrong with their toilet’s plumbing. We’ll run down a few warnings that you shouldn’t ignore. Simply give our plumbers a call for bathroom plumbing service; we offer service 24 hours a day, 7 days a week!
- Suction and gurgling sounds from other bathroom fixtures: When the toilet flushes, are their odd gurgling noises coming from the bathroom sink, or the shower and tub drain? That’s definitely strange… and it’s something that needs to be looked into. The probable reason this is happening is that the drain vents are blocked. Instead of allowing sewer gas to escape through the roof vents, it will force it up through other drains, creating the gurgling noises. You don’t want this to go on, because it will mean fully blocked drains eventually.
- Leaking of any kind: There is no such thing as a “minor” leak when it comes to a toilet! This isn’t just a problem with water waste. It can result in extreme damage to the floor and mold issues. Since there are numerous spots where leaking can occur, you’ll need to have plumbers investigate and find out what to do.
- Weak flushing power: Is the toilet simply having trouble getting the job done, taking multiple flushes? That wastes water, and can mean any number of others things are going wrong, such as low water pressure or clogged up water jets. Or it may simply be a toilet that is too old and needs to be replaced. (It’s always a good idea to go with a low-flow model.)
