Common Toilet Repair Problems and Replacement Tips for your North County Home or Business

If your toilet is running constantly, not flushing or has water around its base then there are some simple repair tips that can help you fix that troublesome toilet. Toilet repairs don’t have to be difficult, if you know what to look for when you’re having issues.

Toilet has Water around it on the floor

When you notice water around the base of your toilet, you’ll want to fix the problem immediately before it causes damage to your floor. Whether its a wall hung toilet leak or just your basic toilet leak. 
First, you’ll want to check all of your toilet’s connections including the tank bolts, the fill valve nut, and the supply tub coupling nut. Make sure everything is tight and secure. If you notice leaking around the bolts, you may need to make simple repairs or replace them. 
Check to make sure your toilet isn’t cracked anywhere around its base. If you notice any cracks, then it’s time to replace the toilet.

Toilet will no flush

A toilet that refuses to flush properly can cause a disaster in your bathroom very quickly. If you flush the toilet and the bowl immediately fills up with water rather than flushing, do not attempt to flush the toilet again. This is most likely caused by a blockage or clog in your plumbing. 
The most common method of repairing a toilet blockage is by using a standard plunger. Place the plunger into the hole in the toilet bowl and proceed to push the plunger up and down in steady, strong strokes. If you are unable to fix the clog using a plunger, then you may have to call a professional plumber who has special tools to unclog your toilet.

Toilet Replacement and Installation

No matter what brand of toilet you have, eventually, you’ll run into a situation where it’s necessarily to replace it. You may just want to upgrade to a better toilet or perhaps your existing toilet has cracks in it that can’t be repaired. No matter what the case may be, you’ll want to make sure you follow some simple steps when installing a new toilet.

First, be sure to disconnect the water supply from the old toilet and turn off the valve on the pipe that is supplying that water. Once the water line is disconnected, flush your toilet several times to remove the water from the bowl and tank.

It’s a good idea to place towels around the toilet before removing it in order to prevent any damage to your floor. When your old toilet is completely removed, you’ll want to fit the new toilet’s wax gasket on the bottom of the bowl and gently place it onto the floor mounts.

Once the new toilet is placed, carefully tighten the washers and nuts onto the floor bolts. Be careful not to tighten them too much or you’ll run the risk of cracking the toilet. Gently lift the new toilet’s tank and place it on top of the toilet bowl, making sure to line up the bolts with their respective holes on the tank. 
Once you’ve fastened the tank to the toilet’s bowl, you’ll want to set the lid on top of the tank. Next, you’re going to want to connect your toilet to your water supply line. Turn on the water valve and allow your toilet’s tank to fill up with water. You are now ready to enjoy your brand new toilet without concern for any issues.
