What Can Go Wrong with Your Toilet?
The team at Radiant Plumbing & Air Conditioning has seen their fair share of toilet problems in their years of service, but here are the four we would identify as the most common:
- Toilet Clogs: The longer you allow toilet clogs to persist, the more unsanitary life becomes in your home. The most useful tool in this situation is a force-cup plunger which is much more useful than any other tool used for minor clogs. However in some instances where clogs have been allowed to build up over time, this may require more heavy duty equipment to remove the issue from reoccurring.
- Phantom Flushes: “Phantom flushes” aren’t just a myth. It’s a real possibility in which your toilet bowl will begin to refill spontaneously without anyone ever flushing it. This problem instead has something to do with the flapper seat. Allow one of our trained professionals at Radiant Plumbing & Air Conditioning to drain the tank and bowl to see if the flapper seat needs to be cleaned or replaced.
- Weak Flushes: If your toilet bowl is emptying slowly, it generally indicates there are clogged holes underneath the rim of the bowl, which generates a weaker flush. Sometimes, home remedies can solve this problem, but it’s best to leave it in the hands of a professional who can ensure the work is done in a way that leaves you completely satisfied.
- Loose or Weakening Seals: The average toilet features five seals, all with the potential to leak. The largest of these five seals, the one between the tank and the bowl, will cause the most major leak and may result in water shooting out of the toilet after flushing. Call a professional at Radiant Plumbing & Air Conditioning to have them tighten the bolts of the seal to stop any leaks or, if that doesn’t work replace the seal by draining the tank and sliding in a new one.
