Toilets and their Repair

Ever woken up in the middle of the night to the sound of a running toilet? Stumbling your way through the dark to jiggle the handle has never been a fun proposition, however, almost every toilet will, at some point, begin to run, leak, or make odd noises. This is simply the nature of the parts inside a toilet’s tank that comprise the flushing system. With a combination of brass, rubber, plastic, and other materials, there are multiple points for possible failure. Leaks from rusty tank bolts or cracked fill valve shanks are common as well. Fill valves begin to wear out and allow excess water to enter the tank, flappers become warped and allow water to run into the bowl, and even the toilet’s flush handle can rust. We will resolve each and every one of these issues for you quickly and professionally, giving your toilets several more years of reliable, trouble-free usage.

When toilets reach a certain age, it is often best to simply replace the entire toilet itself rather than bother with smaller, detailed repairs. If your toilets are reaching 25-30 years of age, the flush pathways inside them are growing narrower and narrower with a build-up of calcium and lime, increasing the probabilities of clogs. There is no repair for this. In such cases, or if you simply want to update the look of your bathrooms with newer and higher quality equipment, it’s time to replace your toilets. With literally thousands of different models and styles out there, there is guaranteed to be something out there for everyone.
