Toilet Leak Repair
There are many reasons for your toilet to leak, and you should take all of them seriously. While Craftsman Plumbing can fix most issues quickly, you don’t want to spend any time waiting when a toilet issue is discovered.
Waiting to fix a leak could lead to serious water damage around the toilet area, or even beyond the bathroom. If you ever spot a leak around your toilet, don’t hesitate to call Craftsman Plumbing to get it inspected and repaired.
Toilet Repair Problems
Toilets usually are pretty reliable and surprisingly simple. However, there are a few small parts that can break, clog, or wear out, causing massive problems in your bathroom.
Some typical toilet repair problems include:
• Clogging in the pipes
• Rusty valves
• Broken chain
• Faulty handles
• Worn stoppers
You’re probably not an expert on toilet lingo, so there are some common signs that something is happening in your plumbing or toilet. If you experience any of these issues, it’s time to call Craftsman Plumbing at (206) 855-6110 for a toilet repair:
• Clogging that happens more than once per week
• Weak flushing or phantom flushing
• Water running or other unusual sounds
• Rusty water or unexplainable rust stains in the bowl
By looking out for these red flags, you can know when it’s time to give Craftsman Plumbing a call.
When to Call Craftsman Plumbing in Seattle
When your toilet needs repair, it will normally be pretty obvious. The fixture will leak in some fashion or will simply not work as it should. The water may continue to run, or the toilet itself may not flush.
While toilets are fairly simple, repairs aren’t always. That’s because these fixtures are made up of internal components and critical connections, and these elements can fail due to age, or normal usage. If you are not certain whether your toilet is damaged and needs repair, there are several signs to watch for. If you notice any of the issues below, call Craftsman Plumbing for toilet repair in Seattle, WA.
Your toilet’s tank holds a large amount of water, which is released into the bowl when you flush. The component that holds the water back until release is called a flapper. It’s a small rubber or plastic flap that creates a seal against the hole where water can rush through. When the flushing mechanism lifts it, water is released. Over time, the flapper can crack and warp. When this happens, water will trickle from the tank into the bowl until you call Craftsman Plumbing for repairs.
Cracked Supply Line
The water your toilet uses comes from a cold water supply line, usually a braided steel hose that runs from the floor or wall to your toilet. Over time, this supply line can crack or dry rot, leading to water pooling up around your toilet or flooding. If you notice water leaking from your supply line, give us a call for an immediate toilet repair.
The float inside your tank tells your toilet when to stop filling the tank with water. If something goes wrong with this critical component, your tank can overflow. If water is pooling up around your toilet, a bad float may be the issue.
Rusted Fill Valve
The fill valve is what controls the flow of water into the tank. When the fill valve becomes rusted or corroded, the flow of water may become unrestrained. This can lead to flooding or overflow around the toilet, which is bad for many reasons.
If your tank is overflowing and a faulty float is not responsible, you likely have a damaged fill valve.
Your toilet has many connectors where water passes. These connectors are designed to prevent water from seeping out of any joints. If these connectors are broken or damaged, your toilet can leak, and you will need repairs. Call Craftsman Plumbing to check out your connections and make sure you won’t get any leaks.
Toilet Flange Repair
The toilet flange is a pipe fitting that connects your toilet to the drainpipe in your floor. If it becomes damaged, serious leaks can occur, and your toilet will be more or less unusable. If you need a toilet flange repair in Seattle, give us a call to get it taken care of.
Most problems with your toilet will end up being simple fixes when your trusted master plumber arrives, but there are times in which a toilet replacement will be the only option. For instance, cracking in the porcelain in the tank or bowl — or anywhere below the water line — can’t be fixed with a simple repair.
But here’s the good news: Toilets can last up to 50 years, so age will likely not be a factor unless you want to upgrade or opt for a more energy-efficient low-flush toilet.
When you decide that the time is right for a replacement, the team at Craftsman Plumbing will be here to help. We’ll walk you through the options, provide an upfront quote, and get the job done right away.
When it’s More than a Toilet Repair Problem
We believe in approaching plumbing as a whole instead of as a network of separate parts. This is because your entire house is interconnected through the plumbing system. A clog in one part of your home can affect others — for instance, a stopped-up shower drain can cause your toilet to back up and overflow.
Other problems in your general plumbing include mineral deposits and leaks in the line, either of which could be the root cause of your toilet problems. Our team offers a full diagnostic for $69 that can outline potential problems and provide a priority timeline to get them fixed. This is just another way we take care of our loyal customers for the life of their homes.
