We all know the toilet is one of the most important parts of your home. Toilets are sturdy and dependable parts of your plumbing system. At some point, most homeowners have an issue with a toilet not functioning properly. Help is just a phone call away!
Toilet Won’t Stop Running
One of the most common problems we see is a running toilet. Toilets are made with a float system inside that makes sure that the amount of the water in your tank stays consistent from flush to flush. At the bottom of the tank is a valve that keeps the water in the tank until you flush. When you flush, the valve is opened and it will let all of the water that was in the tank to rush into the bowl.
The valve is made of rubber meaning it can start to wear over time. Sometimes the rubber will start to get hard and collapse. Sometimes the valve will no longer seal properly which then lets the water out of the tank and into the bowl even if you never flushed. If you are experiencing a problem call Emerson Plumbing today where help is just a phone call away!
Leak at Base of Toilet
If the toilet is leaking around the base, stop using that toilet until it is repaired, and shut off the water supply at the base of the toilet. You may want to use towels to mop up any puddles to prevent damage to your sub floor.
A leak at the base of a toilet can be due to loose bolts, a failed wax ring under the toilet, and more. Call Emerson Plumbing today for toilet repair.
