Garland Plumbers - Toilets

At Garland Plumbing Pro, we understand how important a properly functioning toilet is to you. As one of the most used appliances in your Garland house, there is nothing more frustrating than a toilet that does not flush properly. In many cases the malfunction may be something as simple as a clog. The clog, however, may be caused by something more difficult to clear like foreign objects such as tooth brushes or other common bathroom articles. When this happens, a plunger just will not do the job. While this may be a simple fix for Garland Plumbing Pro, it could be a nightmare for you.

In addition to clogs, there are a number of other things that can go wrong. If the water runs constantly or the flush handle doesn’t work, then you may need an Garland plumbing professional. Did you know a leaking toilet can waste thousands of gallons of water each year?

Remember, if you've never undertaken plumbing repairs in Garland before, you should be aware that “Murphy’s Law” governs do-it-yourself plumbing repairs. When all goes well, you will wonder why anyone would ever pay someone else to do such a simple job. However, when the going gets rough, and the project gets messy, you'll swear you'll never again tackle a job that a professional Garland plumber should do.

If you’re still up for the task of repairing a running toilet, here are some potential causes to consider:

  1. The flapper may be old and degraded. This will cause it to improperly seal and allow water to leak into the toilet bowl.
  2. The flapper may have come loose from one of its hinges. This would also potentially cause the flapper to improperly seal after a flush.
  3. The float and/or fill valve are not calibrated correctly. When the water gets to a suitable level, in the tank, the float should rise to cut the water flow.

Our studies indicate that the typical home plumbing repair project requires three trips to the hardware store.

Garland Plumbing Helpful Hints

Q: How can I tell if my toilet tank is leaking?

A: A small amount of food coloring added to the tank water can help you determine whether the tank ball in the bottom of the tank is leaking. If the coloring seeps into the toilet bowl, the ball or flapper over the discharge opening is not watertight. If the rubber tank ball in a toilet does not fit tightly over the discharge opening, a defective ball, irregular seat or bent lift wires may be responsible. Call today for a Garland plumber to help with your toilet repair needs.

garland clogged toilet serviceQ: Is it safe to use a plunger to clear a clogged toilet?

A: On a simple clog the answer is probably “Yes.” However, for a stubborn clog or reoccurring clogs, plunging is not recommended. You can risk leakage from breaking the seal on drains or breaking the seal to the toilet. Call your qualified Garland plumber at (972) 546-2979 to auger the toilet.

Q: My toilet seems to be loose on the floor. What is causing this?

A: Your wobbly toilet may be moving because the mounting bolts that hold it down have nothing to grab onto anymore. You might think your loose toilet bowl is held down to the floor by a couple bolts. While this is true, you should know that the bolts don’t go directly to the floor. Instead, they secure to a toilet flange. You might get lucky and just be able to tighten down these bolts, but if the bowl is rocking or as been for a while, it’s time to take a look at the flange underneath. We would recommend you contact us for a qualified Garland plumbing technician to determine the cause of this problem.

Q: What causes water to flow unevenly into my toilet from under the rim?

A: In most cases the small holes under the rim become clogged with sediment over time. This blockage reduces the flow of fresh water into the bowl. To correct this problem, carefully insert a rigid wire or small brush into each hole. This should remove the sediment and allow a good flow of water.

Q: Should I install high efficiency toilets in my home?

A: High efficiency toilets have been designed to use even less water than the current standard of 1.6 gallons per flush. While water conservation is essential to our environment, the typical additional cost of a high efficiency toilet is prohibitive. The term “high efficiency” does not necessarily mean the toilet flushes better. It flushes the same using less water. To help understand your options with toilets, call Dallas plumbing experts today at (972) 546-2979.

Q: What is causing the smell of sewer gas around my toilet?

A: In most cases a sewer gas odor around the toilet is a failure of the wax ring seal. This component is designed to seal both sewage and odor from entering the home. There are various reasons why a wax ring may fail and we strongly recommend you give us a call for a complete diagnosis.

Q: The tank on my toilet is loose. Can I simply tighten it with the two bolts to the bowl?

A: If you attempt this repair, be very careful. The reason you have a loose tank is because the rubber seal between the tank and bowl has deteriorated. You run a good chance of cracking the tank if you attempt the repair this way. The best solution is to replace the seal and then tighten the tank. Again use extreme care because without proper experience you still could end up with a broken tank.

Q: My toilet tank lid broke, can you replace the lid?

A: In many cases, the only fix for a broke tank lid is to replace the toilet. In some cases, if you can determine the brand, model number and color, a replacement may be purchased from the manufacturer or from various used lid sites on the Internet. If you need your toilet replaced, we are the ones to call.
