Imagine this: It is early in the morning and suddenly your toilet bowl is not flushing. It needs a major repair, but it’s a weekend and the shops are closed. What will you do?
You might think that since you bought a modern and expensive toilet bowl, it would operate efficiently without so much care and upkeep on your part.
That is not the case… No matter how strong and durable a thing is, if you don’t give the proper care that it deserves, it will fail, sooner or later.
The key here is proper maintenance and care. We all know we shouldn’t flush foreign objects down the toilet, but aside from this, we also need to know how to keep our fixtures in tip top shape.
Five Common Toilet Problems that Your Licensed Plumber in Montana Can Solve
There are many things that could go wrong inside your toilet. Here are some of the most common toilet problems you need to know to prepare yourself.
1. Water leaks
Leaks can come from anywhere, in the supply pipe, at the bottom or the seat of the bowl, inside the bowl, at the supply valve, and many other places inside the toilet.
You will notice these leaks when a pool of water is constantly present in your toilet. Or if you don’t see water on the surface, check your water bill. Is it getting higher and higher every month? If so, there must be a leak somewhere in your toilet’s water supply and discharge system.
2. Clogged Bowl
You may also experience a sluggish or weak water discharge every time you flush the toilet bowl. The bowl could have a partial clog or it is probably located somewhere downstream. You know it you’ve got a clogged toilet when the water goes back into the bowl and the draining is very slow.
3. Dripping and continuous water filling of the tank
When you flush the bowl, the tank will fill up with water automatically. But if you still hear a persistent dripping sound after the tank is full, there is a leak somewhere along the line or the system. Tracing the root cause of this problem can be a bit complicated.
4. Water level at the tank drops
After flushing, the tank fills up completely. But when you notice that there’s a considerable drop in the water level sometime after the tank fills up, that means water is leaking out somewhere.
One cause of this problem is a crack in the piping or the interior colon of the bowl. If this is the case, your only recourse is to replace the bowl with a new one.
5. Suction sounds coming from the sink and tub
When you flush the bowl and you hear gurgling sounds, you probably have a toilet vent pipe that is blocked. You may not be able to find the cause of the blockage or find the loation of the clog itself. You need to get the professional services of a licensed technician to fix the issue.
