Toilet Issues You Should Never Ignore

You probably don’t think too much about your toilet, that is until something goes wrong with it. Toilets are a fixture that are just expected to be working all of the time, but just like any other fixture or appliance, toilets can definitely have their issues. Your porcelain throne has probably served you well for many years, but if you’ve been noticing some issues with it recently, you’re better off having DoneRite Plumbing & Drain, LLC take a look before any further damage occurs.

Neglecting to schedule toilet repairs can end up costing a pretty penny, depending on how severe of an issue you have on your hands, so if you’re dealing with any of the following problems, let our team know right away.

Constant Running

After you flush, it’s normal for your toilet to run for about 30 seconds to a minute. However, if the sound of a running toilet is keeping you up at night, you have a problem. Sometimes, this could just be a minor issue with the chain inside of your toilet tank. If the chain is stuck, wiggle your flush handle a few times to see if the chain loosens. If this works, the flapper will be able to close and the toilet will stop running. If this doesn’t seem to work, you might need to replace your flapper.

Wobbly Toilet

If your porcelain throne wobbles every time you sit down, just know that this shouldn’t be happening. If water or other human waste leaks out from under your toilet due to the foundation base being unsteady, you’re definitely going to have quite the mess to clean up off of your bathroom floor. Since this is a repair that requires professional help, it’s best to give DoneRite Plumbing & Drain, LLC a call to inspect your toilet.

Cracked Toilet Bowl

A cracked toilet bowl is the perfect recipe for leaks, and we all know what happens when there’s a leak: high water bills. To avoid increased water bills and potential water damage on your bathroom floors, scheduling a repair service with our team is your best bet. Our team will then offer a recommendation of whether or not the entire toilet needs to be replaced or if the crack part is fixable.

Whistling Noise

If your toilet sounds like it’s whistling every time you flush, there could be a problem with your toilet tank fill valve. Ignoring the whistling sound can increase your water usage, resulting in increased water bills. It will also interfere with the peace and quiet you’re normally used to in your home, which can be frustrating. To replace the valve, give us a call at (503) 342-7782 to schedule an appointment.

Foul Odors

The bathroom isn’t always the best smelling place after someone uses the toilet, however, if there are lingering odors in your bathroom after no one has used it, there could be an issue with your plumbing system, specifically your drain or sewer line. Like we said, your bathroom isn’t supposed to smell like fresh flowers blooming on a spring day, but lingering foul odors are definitely a reason to call a plumber.

If you have any of the above issues with your toilet, DoneRite Plumbing & Drain, LLC is here to help. You can count on our team to fix any repairs and install a brand new toilet if needed. We know how much of an inconvenience it is to deal with a toilet that isn’t working properly, especially if you only have one bathroom, so don’t hesitate to give us a call at (503) 342-7782 for any and all toilet repairs.
