Assured Comfort Toilet Repair 

 

 

When you are in need of a Toilet Repair service, call the expert Toilet Repair team at Assured Comfort.

The toilet is an essential, can’t-live-without fixture in your home. But like anything that gets regularly used, toilets are bound to break down sooner or later.

Some of the components that most often will need replacing include:

  • Handle
  • Flapper
  • Float Ball
  • Fill Valve
  • Tank Stopper

Besides the breakdown of these components, toilet paper and other materials can build up in your plumbing system, causing a clogged pipe that can lead to an overflow.

If you’ve got standing wastewater in your toilet, or wastewater backed up into your sink or shower, that is an obvious health hazard.

A leaking or overflowing toilet can lead to serious and expensive water damage to your property, and can waste a lot of water and lead to a higher utility bill.

Of course, not all toilet repairs are that serious. In fact, you may be able to fix some toilet problems yourself. Homeowners often already have the tools they need to solve minor plumbing emergencies.

But when it comes to serious issues with your toilet, you’re far better off having a plumbing professional come in and take care of the problem.

If you are having a plumbing emergency with your Toilet that requires a professional, Call Assured Comfort or click on the link below and schedule your Toilet Repair Appointment.

 

Why Won’t My Toilet Flush?


There are many reasons why the flushing mechanism on your toilet may stop working.

Sometimes it’s a simple fix, like the chain connecting the flush lever to the flapper being too loose or broken, thus preventing the flap from being lifted up high enough to let the water into the tank so the toilet can flush.

In that case, the chain may just need to be shortened or replaced. Also, the flapper itself may be worn or broken and need to be replaced.

Or, you may just need to check if the water valve has been turned off, or if it’s set too low.

Turning the water valve back up may fix the problem. Although, if you have taken these steps already and your toilet still isn't flushing properly, it could be a larger issue.

That’s when it’s time to get help from a plumbing professional.

A toilet bowl that empties slowly, also known as a “slow” or “weak flush,” is often the result of the jet holes under the rim of the bowl becoming clogged with minerals such as calcium, lime, or rust-buildup.

Over time, these deposits restrict and block water from flowing into the toilet bowl, causing a weak flush.

Many times this problem can be easily fixed by using a wire coat hanger to gently poke each flush hole to clear out any debris. This will allow the water to drain freely again.

Why is My Toilet Clogged?

Using to much toilet paper, or flushing other materials down your toilet can lead to a clog, which can then result in an overflow.

Anything from paper towels, diapers, wet wipes, sanitary napkins, and excess hair from a brush can all be responsible for a blockage.

In homes with hard water, mineral deposits can build up, eventually making the toilet drain too narrow for waste to flush.

For most clogs, using a plunger should do the trick as the clogs are usually located not very far down the pipe.

If plunging does not work, pouring hot water into the drain may also be able to remove the blockage.

Chemical drain cleaners, on the other hand, are not always the preferred method since they can damage your pipes by causing them to deteriorate faster.

If you’ve tried plunging and pouring hot water down the drain and you still have a blockage, that indicates the clog is likely much deeper than the immediate area of your toilet, and could actually mean a blockage in your property's main sewer line.

If this is the case, it’s best to consult with a drain-clearing professional. Also, if you are able to unclog your toilet, but it still frequently gets clogs, this could also be an indication of a blockage in your sewer line.

Why is My Toilet Running?

When your toilet continues to run after flushing, there can be a variety of problems.

Water could be leaking through an ill- fitting or defective flapper or the float apparatus could be failing to seal the flush valve between the toilet bowl and tank.

Other potential issue's could be water leaking into the overflow tube defective toilet fill valve, tank stopper, float arm or inlet valve.

After you’ve looked at everything noted here, if your toilet is still running continually, your best bet is to call a plumber.

A running toilet is not something you should ignore, since it could be wasting hundreds of gallons of water.

Why is My Toilet Leaking?


Another water-waster is a leaky toilet. A toilet may be leaking water at the base or in the tank.

If the leak is at the base, the wax ring (seal) between the bottom of the toilet and the closet flange (waste pipe) has a leak, thus allowing water to escape under the toilet whenever it’s flushed.

If this is the issue with your toilet, a simple replacement wax ring and retightening of the T-bolts may be the answer.

If you periodically hear a flushing sound coming from the tank when the toilet hasn’t been flushed, this is typically due to a very slow leak from the tank into the bowl.

This flushing issue is usually caused by a bad flapper or flapper seat. The solution for this is to clean the flapper seat and replace it if it’s become damaged.
