One of the most common issues requiring a toilet repair is a persistent clog. This can cause an unpleasant overflow and lead to further issues. Clogged toilets can be the result of flushing items that do not easily dissolve in water such as wet wipes, baby wipes and paper towels, but also drain issues further in your plumbing system. In that case, Abacus drain & sewer services can accurately diagnose your issue and help you clear the clog alongside our 123-day Clog-Free Guarantee.
The mechanism inside your toilet's tank, that helps you flush each time, can sometimes fail or snag causing your toilet to run consistently and wasting water. Abacus can quickly diagnose and address this issue for you and replace the mechanism with one that has greater longevity.
Toilets are secured to the floor via a wax or rubber ring over the drain pipe and a series of bolts. Additionally, proper toilet installation should include caulking around the base of the toilet. If you notice water leaking out from under the toilet, a persistent odor or discoloration of the caulking, you may have a worn out wax or rubber seal. Another reason your toilet may be leaking could be due to a broken anchor flange causing your toilet to move from side to side or feeling unstable.
If your toilet has cracks in the tank or bowl, it's time for a replacement.
If you have an older toilet and want to update the look of your bathroom, installing a new toilet can go a long way. In some cases toilets can have stains and discoloration that are no longer repairable. You may also want a new toilet to help save on your utility bills, as a low-flow toilet uses far less water for each flush.
Abacus plumbers can advise you on a variety of toilet models, colors and sizes that best fit your needs, the look and feel of your bathroom, your bathroom renovation project and budget. Toilets should always be installed by licensed plumbers to ensure the best fit and performance.
