Toilets and sinks have several key areas where problems tend to arise. These can range from inconvenient to complete loss of functionality. Here are some of the most common toilet and sink issues that we can assist with.
A clogged toilet or sink is one of the most frustrating plumbing issues you can experience. Clogs are usually due to a buildup of waste, or can be from a foreign object being flushed that gets caught. Many clogs can be easily solved with a simple plunger or household chemicals. For more information, look at some of our other DIY solutions for clearing clogged drains.
Almost everyone will likely have encountered a toilet that makes more noise than it should. Leaking or constantly running toilets can be an expensive and wasteful drain on your water bill. They are usually caused by a faulty flush valve that doesn’t create a watertight seal. This means water is able to spill out and fill the toilet bowl constantly, leading to the leaking noises. This can be fixed by replacing the flush valve, but may require a more thorough investigation to find the source of more persistent leaks.
Toilets and sinks can become loose over time as the sealant binding them in place begins to degrade. A simple application of caulking can usually solve the issue as it recreates an effective seal. However, if the toilet or sink has become damaged as it has loosened, it may be time to look at installing a new fixture.
Tree roots can often lead to issues with sewer systems when left unchecked. Tree roots tend to become more of an issue once a pipe has already cracked and they are drawn to the increase in nitrogen. However, they can also cause cracked pipes themselves by causing the earth to shift around your plumbing and creating a build up of pressure.
If your toilet or sink is no longer functioning properly, or you are looking to update your bathroom, you’ll need expert installation. A new toilet or sink can be more water and energy efficient, save you money, and bring new style to any bathroom. Installing a new fixture can be a daunting and complicated process, but should be possible for an experienced handyman. If you don’t have the time or expertise to install it yourself, a quick call to our dedicated team will have a Drain Clear plumber there to help you in the blink of an eye.
