Being a homeowner has its rewards and its hassles. One big hassle is when there is a plumbing problem. The most common area of the household plumbing system that causes the most issues is the toilet. You should never ignore problems with your toilets. Why? The longer you let the problems persist, the more likely it is that your home’s plumbing could fail.
A Broken Shut Off Valve
Has the toilet in your powder room or full bathroom suffered a broken shut off valve? If so, you need to contact an experienced plumber immediately because you are dealing with a common problem and is a serious sign of trouble. When there is a broken shut off valve, you not only won’t be able to turn the water off should the toilet overflow, but a costly leak could develop.
When there are foul smells emanating from the bathroom, you could have a serious issue with your toilet. This is likely a sign that the wax ring seal has failed due to the toilet moving, a broken flange, a faulty vent or even a broken drain line under the house. Foul smells are clear signs of toilet issues that must be handled immediately by a reputable and licensed plumber.
Toilet That Runs Continuously
Have you ever noticed that your toilet runs constantly? There could be quite a few reasons why your toilet runs nonstop. These reasons include the chain being stuck and blocking the flapper, there’s too much sediment built-up to allow the flapper to close, or the flapper has worn out its use. A toilet that runs all the time can waste almost 26 gallons of water per day.
A Clogged Toilet
Never ignore a clogged toilet. Even though most people would not ignore this problem, it is still one that is worth mentioning. A clogged toilet can wind up causing sewage to back up into your home. If the clog is serious enough, and you continue to ignore it, it could wind up costing you thousands of dollars in repairs.
Have you ever sat down on your toilet and felt it move? This is definitely not one of the signs of toilet issues you should ignore. A loose or wobbly toilet means that it is not secured properly to the floor. Toilet water and bodily fluids could wind up leaking from underneath the toilet and onto the floor.
