Here in Sahuarita, AZ, toilet repair service is a staple of most professional plumbing company, and the sooner you call them, the more quickly they can respond. Here are 3 common problems that require toilet repair, and which you should look out for in the event something goes wrong.
- Leaks. Leaks usually involves the line running from the toilet tank to the main plumbing. If the line becomes damaged, it can spring a leak, and leaks can also spring up from the seals and screws connecting it to the toilet tank itself. A trained plumber can drain the tank and replace the line with a new one. In the case of more serious leaks – in the bowl or the tank itself – you may need to replace the entire toilet.
- Phantom runs. If the toilet’s flapper valve is damaged, water will drain out of the tank even if you haven’t used the toilet. That will cause it to run mysteriously as it refills, and you’ll be on the hook for the lost water when your next water bill arrives. Trained plumbers can drain the tank and repair or replace the flapper valve to fix the problem.
- Suction sounds from nearby fixtures. Do you get a strange sucking noise from a fixture near the toilet, such as the sink or the shower? If so, then your toilet vent pipe has become clogged. A plumber can clear up the clog fairly quickly.
