Problems and Repairs

Of all the plumbing problems at your home or place of business, most people would rank a clogged toilet as #1. It's also one of the most common plumbing problems and one that is normally easy for an experienced plumber to diagnose and repair.

Toilet Issues?

How can you tell what's ailing your toilet: 

  • You may have a clog as a result of facial tissue or another product that wasn't designed to disintegrate like toilet paper.​
  • If you have young children, the clog could be a bath toy, flushable wipes, diapers, socks, or a cell phone.
  • If using a plunger unclogs the toilet, great. Aggressive plunging can compromise the wax seal and create a leak at the base of the toilet. However, if the clog is recurring, you will need to call a plumber.
  • If your bathroom sink, tub, or shower drains well, the trouble is probably a clog in the bathroom group.
  • If your sink or other fixtures drain slowly, but is not visibly clogged, you may have a blocked sewer line. You will need a plumber to diagnose and repair this problem.

New Toilets

If it is time for a new toilet (such as with new construction or a major renovation), you will need to select and install new commodes. Low-flow toilets, which are required by state laws, use less water per flush, thus helping to conserve water.

You may also wish to consider installing a new toilet with all of the latest "bells and whistles", including automatic flushing, heated seats, mechanically controlled seats and lids and bidet-like features.
