Toilet Repair & Installation

Toilets have a long lifespan—with some models lasting up to 50 years. However, this does not mean toilets are without problems. The components of a toilet are fragile and may need repair and replacement once in a while. In fact, most service requests we receive are for toilet repairs.

Some of the common issues we handle include:

  • Weak or broken flush
  • Running toilet
  • Slow tank fill
  • Bowl water level is low
  • Leaking from the base
  • Wobbling

Our plumbers are experts when it comes to solving even the most challenging toilet problems. We will always take the time to get down to the source of the problem and discuss the repair options with you. If it’s more cost-effective to replace the toilet, we tell you immediately and ensure proper toilet installation in Topeka. Additionally, our team installs new toilets including ADA-compliant and water-conserving units.

Why is There Water Leaking From the Base of My Toilet?

Your toilet can start to leak from the base when the tee bolts holding it down to the floor come loose, or when the wax rings no longer provide a complete seal. In order to identify the cause of the problem, you need to:

  • Check if the toilet is positioned correctly on the floor
  • Remove the plastic covers from the tee bolts
  • Use a wrench to tighten the bolts

If this fixes the problem, then you should be set. However, if the bolts are as tight as they'll go or simply spin in place, you likely need to replace them. If the bolts are fine but the issue continues, then you likely need to replace the wax ring. While the ring itself is cheap, you need to remove the entire toilet to replace it. Contact Pat Plumbing, Heating and Air today to help you get the job done right the first time.

How to Avoid a Damaging Leaking Toilet

Imagine waking up in the morning to get ready for work, only to walk into a puddle of water. To make matters worse, your toilet isn’t flushing properly either. While it could be the worst case scenario, it’s the more common way that homeowners find out that their toilet is damaged. On a smaller scale, a toilet leak could be internal, and lead to wasted water and higher than usual utility costs.

Leaking toilets are common, but they can also be repaired easily and prevented even easier. As a homeowner, it’s important to know what causes these issues, and how to solve them quickly, so you can be better equipped to protect your home.

Do Toilet Flappers Cause Leaks?

The toilet flapper is responsible for creating a tight seal around the outlet pipe that leads into your toilet. When everything is working properly you get a strong and reliable flush, along with an airtight seal that won’t allow water to leak through. However, because these flappers are often made of rubber or plastic, they’re susceptible to damage including:

  • Cracks
  • Tears
  • Warping
  • Seal deterioration

Generally, if the flapper is damaged in any way, you’ll either notice the constant sound of running water or have difficulty flushing your toilet. This is a very common issue, which is why replacing the flapper is convenient and easy. More often than not you can buy a replacement at your local hardware store and have your toilet back up and running in no time.

Why Else Could Your Toilet be Running?

Toilet flappers are the more common cause for your toilet leak, but they are not the only one. Your leaking toilet can also stem from damage to your porcelain or a loose or compromised valve. Cracked toilets can occur with age or by accident. The problem with this situation is in many cases the water leaks out onto your floor, causing water damage, and possibly turning into mold growth.

Another common toilet leak issue stems from the plumbing itself. The valves and pipes that lead to and from your toilet are all susceptible to deterioration. As seals and valves weaken, they can eventually leak water. In the event you see a leak behind your toilet, close the valve and call your local plumber for help.

Always Rely on Toilet Maintenance

The best way to deal with a leaking toilet is to prevent it from happening altogether. Plumbing maintenance, and particularly toilet maintenance, is the best way to keep your system in top shape. A professional plumber will be able to inspect all the valves and connections and ensure everything is in good working order. Additionally, they can easily replace flappers and flushing mechanisms to keep your toilet working properly.
