Before you place a call to us for emergency plumbing service, cut off the water supply to your toilet. Typically, a toilet will have a dedicated shutoff valve situated on the wall behind or beside the toilet bowl, below tank level. This valve is on the supply line and closing it will turn off the water to that toilet only. If this valve is stuck or you cannot find it, turn off the water at your home’s water main line. There will be a shutoff valve located on this line and it is typically found near the area where the pipe comes into the home from the utility water lines or the well.

Signs of Common Toilet Problems

Toilet parts can degrade and malfunction depending on wear and use. This damage can affect many different components and functions of your equipment. Anytime your toilet performs differently than normal, observe this behavior as it could be a sign that you need a repair. The following symptoms commonly mean there is a malfunction in the toilet and you need a plumber to fix it.

  • The fill valve takes a long time to fill the toilet tank
  •  You hear a dripping sound from the tank after it is fully filled
  •  Flushing the toilet takes an extra long time
  •  You hear a gurgling sound from the nearby tub or sink when the toilet flushes
  •  The toilet’s flush is weak and does not fully dispose of matter
  •  Your toilet has a strong flush yet it doesn’t fully dispose of matter
  •  The water level in the toilet bowl is lower than normal
  •  Your toilet makes a whistling noise while the tank fills with water
  •  The water level in the toilet bowl does not stop rising as it fills, eventually overflowing

Common Toilet Installation and Repair Problems

Problems affecting toilets can be minor or significant and the specific issue will impact the course of action to fix it. If only a minor part needs to be replaced or repaired, there’s no sense installing a new toilet. If major toilet components are damaged, new toilet installation may be the best route to pursue. Here are some of the plumbing issues that may warrant a toilet repair or toilet replacement.

  • If water leaks from the base of your toilet or the toilet rocks loose when you sit on it, these conditions indicate there is a broken wax ring seal between the toilet and the floor. The old wax ring can usually be removed and replaced, but it’s best to have a plumber perform this job as you can spill a lot of water onto the floor and surrounding areas if you try to remove the toilet yourself. A rocking toilet can also mean the bolts connecting the toilet to the floor are loose. If these bolts can’t be tightened, new bolts can be installed.
  • If you hear the sound of constantly running water from your toilet tank, there may be a problem with the flush assembly. If the toilet sounds like it is flushing all the time or makes a flushing sound when it is not in use, water may be leaking from the tank into the toilet bowl. This may be caused by a broken or damaged flapper or a bad flush valve. These components are responsible for maintaining the water level in the toilet tank and refilling the toilet bowl. Usually, these parts are available for replacement and do not require the installation of a new toilet. However, don’t allow the toilet to run continuously as a running toilet can waste many gallons of water in just a day’s time. A running toilet can also overload your home septic system.
  • If you flush the toilet but the flush is incomplete, this is often an issue where toilet installation is appropriate. You’ll want to pursue toilet installation especially when you have an older toilet displaying this problem, as older toilet models are unlikely to have the high-performance flush power of today’s toilets. Replacing this old toilet with a new one can improve function and use.

Install Low Flow Toilets in Columbus, OH Homes

Old toilets and plumbing fixtures use far more water than models built today. This is because federal regulations that limit water consumption of plumbing fixtures were introduced in the years since those older models were built and installed. If your toilet was made before 1980, it may waste as many as 7 gallons of water each time it flushes. Modern toilets are required to use no more than 1.6 gallons of water with each flush. The best low flow toilets use only 1.28 gallons of water to flush.

If you flush a toilet 5 times a day, using an older model will consume 12,000 gallons of water yearly. When you use a high efficiency low flow toilet with water consumption of only 1.28 gallons per flush, yearly water consumption is only around 2,000 gallons. Making a simple upgrade to install toilet equipment that is modern can conserve around 10,000 gallons each year. And that’s per toilet you replace!

If you’re ready to take advantage of low flow toilet technology and save water at home, call the plumbers of Buckeye Heating, Cooling & Plumbing. Our team will give you a quote for the total cost of your toilet replacement project and help you select the toilet model options that perform at the level you desire. Replacing toilets and other plumbing fixtures around the house while doing away with old, inefficient models is an excellent project that will help you save water and save money on your utility bills.
