What are some common signs that it's time to replace your toilet?
Frequent clogging is a clear sign that you need a new toilet. Clogs often occur because the toilet doesn't produce enough pressure to move waste and trash through the pipes. Cracks in the base or tank of the toilet are another sign that you need to repair or replace your existing model. Those cracks can let water leak out of the toilet every time you flush it, which can cause extensive water damage to your floor. If the toilet moves or shifts when you sit down, you should also consider getting a new model. Even if the toilet only moves a few centimeters, this indicates that it is not stationed properly on the floor. It can also signify that you have hidden water damaged that changed the slope of the flooring. Our knowledgeable specialists can make the necessary alterations or install a brand-new model if needed.
How can professionals prevent clogs?
Brand-new toilets that are properly maintained can still experience clogs which can range from minor blockages to severe obstructions deep within your system. Before you waste time and money on store bought products that can actually do more harm than good, it is important to learn how professional plumbing technicians can attend to the situation. In certain instances we can use a specialized tool known as a snake. This lightweight and flexible tool goes through the toilet and into the pipes, eliminating trapped debris from your system.
We can also use a snake with a camera attached to one end, which allows our technicians to locate the issue on a small digital screen. One reason why you might have a clogged toilet is because of tree roots that have forced their way into your pipes in search of an additional water source. A camera allows our specialists to see where the roots are so that they can determine the most effective method of removal, and decrease the chances of further problems.
What are some simple maintenance tips?
Here are some easy methods you can follow to decrease the chances of a malfunctioning toilet:
- Check for water leaks in the tank.
- Examine the ground underneath for any signs of leaks coming from the base.
- Clean the inside and outside of the toilet at least once a week with non-abrasive products to avoid chipping or scratching the porcelain.
- Check the float inside the tank in order to make sure that it sits at the proper level. This will ensure that enough enough water is let in without overflowing the tank.
- Hire a professional to remove clogs and debris trapped in the pipes.
The products available in home improvement stores can cause a buildup of debris that significantly damages your plumbing system. While there are some minor repairs and home maintenance that you can do on your own, it's best to call on a professional when dealing with clogs and other repairs.
