Today, we’re discussing causes of common toilet problems.
Problem #1: The Toilet Keeps Running
Usually a toilet that continuously runs when it hasn’t been flushed recently is suffering from a worn out toilet valve. Over time the toilet valve can harden and begin to allow water to escape from the toilet tank to the toilet bowl. This is a problem in need of attention. A running toilet wastes water and will only get worse with time. In many cases, a toilet replacement is not needed. Usually replacing the toilet valve will do the trick.
Problem #2: Leaky Toilets
Toilets can leak for a variety of reasons. Sometimes the wax seal becomes defective and needs to be replaced. Rusted, corroded pipes can also begin to leak water. In rare cases, the porcelain of the toilet tank or bowl can become cracked. In any of these instances, you’ll want to have a Reading toilet plumber take a look at your toilet. If your toilet can be adequately repaired that’s what we’ll do.
