Common Toilet Problems

  • Leaking Tank - Here are some symptoms to look for if you think your toilet may be malfunctioning: the toilet leaks after it is flushed, there is a presence of sewer odors, or the toilet rocks back and forth. More than likely, this means that the wax toilet bowl ring needs replacement. This procedure involves removing the toilet from the floor and installing a new wax bowl ring

  • Clogged Toilet - If an object is accidentally dropped into your toilet or it overflows when flushed, this means that your toilet is clogged. Obstructions can be removed by plunging the toilet or by fixing it with a plumber’s snake. If snaking does not correct the problem, Bill Smith Plumbing & Heating will examine the drainage, waste, and venting pipe system for corrosion, sediment buildup, or main line clogs.

  • Running Toilet - The flushing mechanism for your toilet needs to be adjusted or replaced if you hear the constant sound of running water or you need to jiggle the lever often in order to stop the flow of water. Call Bill Smith Plumbing & Heating to stop your toilet from running today.

  • High Water Pressure - If water flows down the sides of your toilet bowl a long time after flushing, your home may have high water pressure. Over time, high water pressure can wreak havoc on home water systems. To fix high water pressure, Bill Smith Plumbing & Heating will install a pressure relief valve on the main line to your home.
