Can you imagine waking up to a flooded bathroom floor? Well, it can pretty well happen if you don’t nip toilet repair problems in the bud!
Yes, toilet emergencies are devastating.
They are not only inconvenient but a toilet repair in Toronto can be expensive if not done on time. The best thing to do is to call your 24 hour plumber at the first signs of a clogged or leaking WC.
It doesn’t matter what the plumbing problem may be, Dima Plumbing is always ready to contain the situation. We are trained to efficiently diagnose and fix your latrine, especially when a plunger isn’t enough!
Common types of toilet problems
Did you know that your everyday lavatory use makes it prone to wear and tear and consequent plumbing issues? It’s inevitable, but what you can do is take care of it in time before it grows into extensive repairs.
Here are some common WC problems you should know about:
1. Overflowing bowl
A clog leads to the most common problem – an overflowing lavatory bowl. It happens if you forget to flush or if you had flushed wrong things like toys, plastic and sanitary napkins. The material ends up stuck in the pipe and it creates a block.
2. Clogged drain
If you notice that water doesn’t drain as quickly as it used to, it’s probably because of a blocked toilet drainpipe. Sometimes all it takes is a plunger to resolve the drain problem Toronto. However, if it doesn’t help, then it’s better to call your professional plumber.
3. Leaking valve
Leaking valves not only lead to a puddle of water around your WC but also increases your monthly water bill. No matter if the leak’s inside the bowl or at the supply valve, it’s synonymous with your money flowing down the drain!
4. Handle not working properly
Flushing is difficult if the lavatory handle is loose and wiggling. The solution lies in tightening or replacing the handle.
Though you can do it yourself? Professionals from Dima Plumbing do a better job!
6. Cracked or leaking base
Cracked bowls or bases are especially common with old latrines. It leads to consequent water leakage, which can get from bad to worse if you aren’t careful. Imagine how much you will have to spend on WC repairs and cleaning up the leak if you wake up to a flooded bathroom floor!
7. Clogged rim
Clogged rim jets are usually the cause for toilet water running slowly. So make sure you have your plumber check and clean the rim jets if your latrine isn’t flushing correctly.
8. Damaged toilet flapper
Sometimes a warped or damaged rubber seal results in your toilet flapper not fully closing. It, in turn, means that the water keeps trying to fill to the tank’s designated water level. The sound of a continuously running WC is not only irritating; its related repairs and water loss are expensive.
9. Water tank doesn’t fill properly
The water tank not correctly filling up or too high or low a bowl water level is another common problem. The lavatory thus ends up emitting a hissing sound or flushing on its own.
Other common lavatory problems are
- The WC getting covered in condensation
- The entire bathroom fills with sewer fumes smell
- Loud banging and pipe hammering noises when using the WC
How you can handle toilet repair problems
There are a few things you can try out at WC repair before calling us.
1. Leaking toilets
Water pools under the WC may be because of a leaking water supply. In this case, you can try tightening the t-bolts.
Any water around the base, especially after flushing, is usually because of a failed wax ring. You, however, have to call your 24 hour plumber to remove the wax ring.
2. WC not flushing
The most common reason for the flush not working is a clogged lavatory. And the most effective way of dealing with it is by plunging. You have to place the plunger in the WC bowl over the hole and gently push up and down.
Repeat a few times and then flush again once water starts going down the drain.
You can also try removing the clog with a coat hanger if you don’t have a plunger. Just straighten the hanger out as much as possible, and push and try to remove the block. Wrapping its end with a rag helps prevent any damage to the WC bowl.
However, if this doesn’t work, call Dima Plumbing services for a professional latrine repair.
3. Toilet won’t stop running.
It the lavatory won’t stop running, it’s probably due to the flapper valve. You can try replacing it yourself or call us to check if there is any debris in the valve assembly.
It’s correct that toilet emergencies can happen anytime and without warning. You have to deal with it in the right manner.
We know how important it is that your lavatory remains in good working condition all the time. We have a range of toilet repair services to take care of your WC repairs.
Possible reasons for clogged toilets
A clogged latrine is the most common toilet repair problem we face. It can create severe water damage to your home and is risky for your health too. And what’s more interesting is that there are so many reasons for a clogged WC.
Here is a list of the most common reasons:
Old cast iron drains
Most Toronto residents’ drainage systems have exceeded its expected lifetime of metal drainage. So it’s not surprising that the chlorine, lime, and calcium in water remains inside the pipes with time.
You also notice corrosion of the drain parts, and the drainpipe opening collecting rust. With the entire pipe filling and getting blocked with sediment and debris, the toilet starts leaking and reduces flush flow.
Food flushed down the water bowl
Some Toronto residents flush food down the toilet and suffer from a clogged WC as a consequence.
Yes, you will be surprised at how many frustrated mothers call, complaining about a lavatory plugged with some toy or the other! What seems to be a game to toddlers, ends up a nightmare to them!
You could say that this is the number one culprit for clogged toilets. The problem is most common in homes having basement bathrooms connected to sewage pumps. Cleaning drains plugged with tampons is rather expensive.
Poor WC installation
Poor toilet installation can also lead to clogging issues. There are many instances where the plumbing systems seem to work perfectly well for years. It’s once a section of the piping slopes the wrong way that the pipes end up clogged.
This is when your drains need cleaning and perhaps a pipe correction.
