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:

Services Provided

Here are some common WC problems you should know about:

  • 1. Overflowing bowlA 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 drainIf 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 valveLeaking 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 properlyFlushing 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 baseCracked 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 rimClogged 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 flapperSometimes 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 properlyThe 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.

How you can handle toilet repair problems

There are a few things you can try out at WC repair before calling us

  • 1. Leaking toiletsWater 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 flushingThe 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 drainsMost 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 bowlSome Toronto residents flush food down the toilet and suffer from a clogged WC as a consequence.
  • ToysYes, 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!
  • Sanitary napkinsYou 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 installationPoor 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.

Dima Plumbing – Honest plumbers with an excellent reputation

Many plumbing companies in Toronto have a habit of including numerous additional charges when it comes to billing.

Why should you hire a professional plumber from Dima Plumbing?

Remember, Toronto has strict plumbing codes, and your home has to be up to code if you plan to sell it. Unfortunately, most DIY plumbing projects don’t consider this.

  • We are so glad we were able to find John, he is such a professional and so friendly. We've been in our house about a year and found a leak in our ceiling directly under one of our bathrooms. John was able to find that a gasket was missing from the bathtub drain, and also the toilet gasket was replaced as there was water around it. Everything done in less than an hour. Hoping this will fix our problem, but I am confident that we won't have leaks anymore! Thanks John!

    We were very happy with the service we got from John. He was prompt in his response and came to our home quickly. He was able to resolve our plumbing issue efficiently and at a fair price. He even gave us a few hacks on how we can keep our pipes running smoothly to avoid similar issues in the future. We would definitely use him again and recommend him to our friends and family.

    Incredible service! +++ So glad to have found John, as now our go to master plumber. He is very professional, reasonably priced, highly skilled and a true gentleman. Getting an accurate quote from John was quick and easy - I submitted pictures with my job list using their web form, received a fair quote within the hour, and a few minutes later I was able to book a convenient time with him. He came on time and communicated 30 minutes on the dot before arrival. He installed a handheld bidet sprayer with hot and cold water connection and a pair of water hammer arrestors for my front loading high efficiency washer. He worked clean and efficiently and checked everything with me before wrapping up. Highly recommend him and will be calling him for all my plumbing needs going forward.

  • John is an absolute pleasure to deal with. One morning woke up to some really bad water stains on the kitchen ceiling due to some kind of leak in the bathroom above.. Reached out to John who was very attentive with excellent communication. He instructed me to take a couple photos and answer a few questions. He was able to diagnose the problem accurately and provide me with a quote for the work in a quick email exchange. He came, resolved my problem and everything was done well and completely transparent with everything.. He also took a look at another issue I had and provided great guidance there as well. I could not be more happy with the service John provided. He's a fantastic plumber and a great authentic, friendly guy. Look no further if you need a great plumbing services.

    John did 3 separate jobs around my house including adding a filter outside, fixing a pipe inside my garage, and replacing a leaky toilet shut-off valve. Very happy with the quality of the work, and John took the time to answer my questions and explain what he was doing and why. Overall very satisfied and would use him again.

    I’d used John’s service twice within last several months. First to replace the basket strainers with the kitchen sink, he also replaced the piping without charging extra when he saw the pipes not installed properly from before. Second time was to repair a leaking toilet. John was able to identify the issue when I explained to him on the phone and he came and fixed it. He also fixed other issue on the day he visited and the charges are reasonable. Will definitely use the again

  • We had a problem with a leaking toilet that had to be fixed. I contacted John with my questions and received the response very promptly. After I was ready to go ahead with the repairs he was able to squeeze me into his schedule on the next day. He arrived on time and did a great job fixing the leak. It has been more than 8 months since that day and we have not had a single problem again. Another good thing that came out of his visit is that if something is going to go wrong with the plumbing in the condo I don't need to spend time searching for someone I trust with the plumbing work, I will definitely call him again.

    I initially thought I needed a complete faucet change but after review, John mentioned I required a new cartridge which was not as expensive as initially quoted. I booked John for his honesty and integrity as I sent the same details to several other companies who quoted $800-$1200. John came within a 24 hour turn around time and fixed the leak in my faucet! Thank you again

    Needed to replace the Thermostatic valve in our shower. John Dima was on-time very professional and got to work right away. What I liked was how he worked; He put on shoe covers at the front door, was careful not to scratch or damage the shower, was constantly wiping down the surface to make sure it was clean and free of any debris. Awesome Job. I would recommend Dima Plumbing and will call upon him if we need future servicing.

    We hired Dima Plumbing to replace our outdoor faucet since it was rusty and our old hose was corroded stuck on it. John came on time, was polite and personable, very efficient with the job, and offered helpful tips on what do with outdoor faucets during the winter. The highlight for me was watching John work. It was a quick and straightforward replacement (less than 30 mins) but you could see the years of knowledge and experience with how smoothly John replaced the old faucet, cleaned away the years of rust and corrosion, and attached the brand new bib. It was like watching those mastercraftsmen working effortlessly with their tools to scrape and sculpt something from nothing. Highly recommend John and Dima Plumbing!

    I recently used Dima Plumbing to replace an old toilet and its shut-off valve. I highly recommend their services. John's quote was reasonable compared other plumber's quotes I received. He was very prompt in everything - replying to my request for a quote, answering my questions, booking an appointment, and arriving for the work. He did the job efficiently, following COVID guidelines, and explained well what needed to be done. If I need future plumbing work, I will contact Dima Plumbing and will recommend this plumbing firm to my friends and family.
