How to Know It’s Time for a New Toilet

When there’s a plumbing emergency, it can be difficult to determine if the issue is related to the toilet or the pipes.

Regardless of the plumbing issue you are experiencing, our team of highly trained plumbers can ensure that everything is in tiptop condition. If the problem is your old toilet, a new one will be recommended, and our experts will handle the toilet installation.

While toilet-related problems usually go unnoticed, scheduling regular maintenance with professional and reputable plumbers is advisable. That’s why Mr. Rooter Plumbing is your go-to service provider when it comes to plumbing maintenance and repairs. If you can’t tell that there’s a problem with your toilet, onboarding an expert can help you steer away from further damage. Some of the telltales of a potentially damaged and malfunctioning toilet include:

Clogs and Overflows

With everything that goes down the toilet, it’s common to plunge it once in a while to remove any minor clogging. However, if you find yourself doing this more than once a week, you should consider hiring a plumber to assess the issue. After a comprehensive assessment, our plumbers can determine the extent of damage before recommending a suitable solution. Depending on the severity of the damage, Mr. Rooter Plumbing can suggest unclogging or toilet installation to reverse the problem. We leverage the use of cutting-edge technology to deal with tough clogs and get your toilet in optimal condition.

Constant Running

If you notice that there’s running water in the tank even when nobody is using the toilet, there’s a chance your components are worn out or in need of repair. This is usually a problem associated with flappers, which are easy to replace and inexpensive. We can diagnose the problem using a simple dye test before proceeding with the repairs. If the flappers are not leaking, you should ensure that the water isn’t rising and running into the overflow line by setting the float properly. A damaged float can also cause this problem, and it’s advisable to have Mr. Rooter Plumbing handle repairs before you receive a shocking water bill.

Toilet Leaks

Water in the toilet is usually not uncommon, but there are signs that homeowners need to look out for before the damage becomes irreversible. If you detect signs of misalignment of the tiles, or damage to the floor around your toilet, you should have a professional look. Leaky toilets are usually caused by a flange that’s too low or broken, which can be fixed within no time. If this isn’t the cause of the leak, then you should contact a leak detection company to pinpoint the root of the problem.

Mr. Rooter Plumbing can help you assess your plumbing for leaks and conduct the necessary repairs before the issue gets out of hand. Don’t wait for your toilet to cause severe damage to your property; contact Mr. Rooter Plumbing today and enjoy exceptional toilet installation.
