Common Toilet Leaks and Problems

We come prepared with fully stocked trucks, ready to install your new toilet or repair existing toilet issues that same day!
A weak flush is frustrating to deal with. If your toilet’s flush is weak, it could be due to any of the following:
- Water level in your tank not filling high enough to create sufficient flow.
- Toilet tank empties slowly and doesn’t generate the necessary suction.
- Worn or wrong size flapper.
- A clog down blocking flow out of the toilet.
Many times, we’ll find that a previous owner tried to install a new flapper valve themselves and put in the wrong one for their toilet’s model. Luckily our technicians always have the right parts on hand.
If your toilet takes a long time to fill back up, it could be a clogged refill valve or a faulty flapper. Make sure your water supply is open and that water easily flows back into the tank after you flush. If your flapper valve is old or not situated correctly, water is likely leaking into your bowl from the tank. This triggers new water to refill the tank and the cycle continues.
We can replace these worn valves and stop your toilet from constantly running and wasting water.
Toilet Overflows After Use
Few plumbing emergencies are more unnerving than a toilet overflowing in your home. A toilet overflowing but not clogged usually happens for one of three reasons:
- The flapper valve could be having trouble sealing properly causing too much water to flow from the tank into the bowl.
- The ball float could be failing to tell the refill valve to close once pre-flush water levels have been restored.
- Your refill valve isn’t closing even though the ball float is telling it to and water from your main line continues to flow.
Whatever the reason your toilet is overflowing, we’ve got fast solutions to fix the problem.
Toilets can leak for a couple different reasons. In most instances it’s simply due to aging where:
- The seal between the toilet and the floor wears out.
- The gasket between the tank and bowl wears out.
A toilet leaking at base means the rubber or wax seal placed between the bottom, or “seat” and the floor is faulty. With enough wear, water can find a way through and out onto your floor. A leak between the bowl and tank likely means that the rubber gasket that helps the flapper valve seal the tank off may have worn down.
Our technicians can diagnose your toilet leak and ensure water doesn’t end up on your bathroom floor again.
We understand replacing a toilet is never your first choice, but toilets don’t last forever. If you think your toilet is old enough to go to that big bathroom in the sky, we can set you up with a brand-new, more efficient model that should last for many years to come.
