IS YOUR TOILET CONSTANTLY RUNNING?

TOILET REPAIR

Nothing is more frustrating than a broken toilet. However, you should never turn to a do-it-yourself home kit when facing serious toilet repair issues. The last thing you need in your bathroom is your toilet not flushing properly, or a toilet that backs up and pours out its disgusting contents onto the bathroom floor.

Even worse, you’ll waste quite a bit of water every month if your toilet is persistently leaking. Instead of wasting water and trying to handle your faulty toilet on your own, instead, turn to the trusted professionals at LaCassa Plumbing to fix it for you.

SIGNS YOU NEED A TOILET REPAIR

Your toilet can often show signs that it’s time to repair it. Be sure to look out for the following signs if you wish to avoid that gross smell and a backup of dirty water.

  • Gurgling Noises: The most likely explanation for these sounds is the blocking of a vent or sewer blockage.
  • Bad Flush: Faulty water flushing also indicates other toilet issues, including staggered water and insufficient water pressure.
  • Unstable Toilet: Toilet has been disturbed and the wax seal has been broken.
  • Crack in the Toilet: A broken toilet tank or bowl may cause performance issues and water leakage, indicating a need for prompt repair.

HOW TO FIX A RUNNING TOILET?

If you have got a running toilet, we don’t recommend you try to handle it on your own. If you find it too complex or if you know that you have more chances of breaking things than fixing it, don’t try to address it by yourself. Instead, your best chance is to contact us to take care of it for you. However, you can fix a simple running toilet can with the following steps:

The first step should be to turn off the water supply in your toilet. To do so, turn the knob clockwise, and it should cut off the water supply.

After turning off the water supply, you need to open the lid from the top of the tank. It is fragile, so you must be careful while opening it. Take a look around inside it. You should see all the main parts in your tank: the flush valve, fill tube, and fill valve are all inside the tank.

The next step would be to check the flapper if it is sealed correctly or not. To check, press your fingers around the edges of it. If the toilet stops running, then the flapper's seal has gone bad. After taking note of how your flapper connects with the toilet (and even taking pictures), you can get a new seal.

Finally, examine is filled valves, as these can fail over time. Deposits of dirt, waste, or mineral size may cause the valve to open alone and cause the toilet to operate intermittently. The valve can be fixed or replaced.
