Toilet Repair

Toilet Repair in Noblesville, IN

Toilets have become a modern-day essential and when something goes wrong, it is hard not to notice. It is important to address the problem right away to prevent larger issues from arising. There are many causes of toilet problems, and while minor repairs may be done on one’s own, more complicated issues affect the toilet’s functionality and will require the expertise of a plumber.

Common Toilet Problems

Toilets are relatively complicated mechanisms, and many issues may affect their functionality. Listed below are warning signs that warrant the need for toilet repair.

  • Wet Floors or Pooling. Occasionally humidity around the intake pipe may cause condensation to build behind the toilet, causing it to drip onto the floor. However, if the floor is wet and there is no humidity in the room, it could be something more serious. The shut-off valve may be leaking. A leaking valve can cause damages to the structural support to both beneath and around the toilet, making for unsafe conditions.
  • Toilet Running Continuously. If the toilet is running continuously, there may be a leak in the toilet tank. A leak in the tank will lead to the water draining into the toilet bowl. After the water has drained, the float in the tank will then drop, signaling to the toilet that the tank needs more water. A toilet that is running continuously might lead to higher water bills.
  • Frequent Clogs. Toilets will clog from time to time, which is not uncommon. A clogged toilet should be a rare occurrence if the toilet is being properly used, and the mechanism is performing as it should. However, if the toilet clogs regularly, there may be a broken part or blockage in the sewer line.
  • Lack of Flushing. Having to flush the toilet more than once after use is a sign that the parts that make the toilet flush are not working as they should. This could be due to low water pressure or something is wrong with the water jets in the toilet.
  • Scratches or Cracking. A crack or scratch in the toilet may be an early sign that a replacement is needed. Cracks are a challenge to clean and may lead to more significant and catastrophic problems. Even the smallest of cracks can expand, leading to leaks.
  • Suction or Gurgling Noises. When a toilet is flushed, it is important to pay close attention and listen to any gurgling or suction noises from other bathroom fixtures. A blockage in the drain vent is the likely culprit behind these noises.
  • Rusty Metal. Rust or corrosion means a part has worn out and will need to be replaced. If there is widespread rust or corrosion, a total replacement may be necessary.

Wiggly Handle

A toilet handle that is depressed without resistance is because of a loose connection or chain. While not all toilet tanks are created the same, all feature a lift arm and rubber stopper. The stopper connects via a chain to the lift arm. If the chain is disconnected from the arm, the rubber stopper will not lift to allow water to drain from the tank; creating a flush. This same issue occurs when the nut that secures the handle to the lift arm has become loose.

Hiring a Plumber

Professional plumbers strive to provide quality repair. It is important to hire a company that you can trust. Choosing the right company ensures an exceptional quality of work and prevents future problems. When looking for a quality company, it is important to consider these tips.

  • Proper Licensing- Is important to verify the company is licensed and insured by the state. Be sure to check for any complaints filed against the company before hiring.
  • Experience- The more experience a plumber can provide, the more likely they are to get the job done correctly the first time.
  • Pricing- It is important to gather quotes and verify the pricing is fair and competitive in the surrounding area.
  • References- Reputable companies should provide references. Be sure to ask for references before hiring.
  • Warranties- An honest and reputable company will offer some sort of guarantee on the services they perform. It is important to determine what type of warranty the company offers and make sure they will stand behind their work.
