Five Most Common Toilet Problems:
A clogged toilet is a common problem. There are several tools that can assist with clearing a plugged toilet. Compared to a standard plunger that’s used to clear minor clogs, a force-up plunger does a much better job. Push the bulb into the bowl. Then, pump with force and control without splashing. If you have pushed some of the blockages through you’ll see it. If required, repeat the process. For major clogs, use an auger. Push the auger end into the drain. As you insert the rotor downward, twist the handle. Make sure you don’t scratch the bowl in the process.
A conventional toilet has a minimum of five seals with leaking potential. It’s important to locate the troublesome seal and replace or tighten it. The biggest seal is the seal pertaining to the bowl and tank. A crack in the tank seal could lead to a serious leak, with water coming out from below the tank at each flush. Substituting this seal entails draining the tank and removing it. For better access, turn the tank 180 degrees; get rid of the existing seal, and replace it with a fresh one. The mounting bolts’ smaller seals and the ballcock’s base could also fail and lead to smaller leaks. Get replacements for these as well. Bolt tightening or occasional nut mounting is sufficient to arrest the leak.
The wax seal is the last seal that’s mounted atop a plastic flange below the toilet base. When this seal fails, the water leaking below the toilet base would rot the floor eventually. Caulking around the toilet’s base without mending the leak would only hold the water hostage, worsening matters. To address a leak surrounding the toilet’s base, you have to take the toilet off and replace the wax seal. Note: Never Caulk around the entire base of the toilet. Leave the rear of the toilet uncaulked to let any water leak out and not just pool and rot the floor.
If a broken flange has caused the leak, call us to take care of it. This type of toilet service requires a little more work and know-how to repair.
Periodically, you could hear spontaneous refilling of your toilet, as if someone flushed the toilet. Any toilet that cuts off and on without external force or runs at irregular intervals apparently has an issue, which is called a “phantom flush.” The reason for this problem is an extremely slow tank leak into the toilet bowl. This leaky toilet problem can be fixed by draining both the bowl and tank, checking and cleaning the flapper, and replacing the flapper seat in case it’s in a bad physical state.
In case you hear a continuous hissing noise from the toilet, it is probably due to water spilling into the tank through the supply line. The components, in this case, that should be inspected are the float, refill tube, and inlet-valve or ballcock assembly. Typically, the hissing noise is courtesy water flowing in via the inlet valve. First find out if the float requires adjusting or is sticking. Then, inspect to ensure the refill tube is not pushed in too deep inside the overflow tube. (It must extend just close to ¼” below the overflow tube’s rim.) If neither of these attempts address the issue, you would probably have to get the ballcock assembly replaced.
Toilet Bowl Slowly Empties
Also called a weak flush, a slowly emptying bowl is generally a toilet clog issue caused due to the clogged holes below the bowl’s rim. Use a curved wire piece to gently poke into all the flush holes to clear the debris out. A coat-hanger wire would work fine, with a mirror helping you look at things below the rim. Also, you could use the wire to liberate the debris that could be obstructing the siphon jet inside the drain’s bottom. Just ensure you don’t scratch the bowl.
If something has cracked the toilet base anywhere we usually recommend you replace the toilet. A new toilet is the way to go if the base has cracked.
How Do You Fix a Toilet That Keeps Running?
If your toilet keeps running minutes after a flush, you might have an issue with your system. In some cases, the repair can be straightforward because one of the parts, including the flapper, the fill valve, the fill tube, the flush handle/flapper chain, or the float. Many of these parts can be replaced easily. Give our team at Mr. Toilet Plumbing of Burnaby a call.
Unclog Toilet Repair in Burnaby BC
While toilet unclogging may seem like a job that can be performed solo, professional help is often needed for severe stoppages. This is because a plunger alone is not always the right tool for the job. When foreign objects are flushed down the drain, for instance, the suction force propelled by these devices is simply not enough to free the blockage. Since most home and business owners lack access to the equipment needed to get wastewater flowing once more, making a phone call to Mr. Toilet is always a good idea.
