Your toilet provides an important daily function to your household. And when it’s not working right, it can be a real problem.
Ignoring toilet problems can cause damage from filthy backups, damage to the toilet itself, and flooding. Water damage from flooding can result in a costly repair, anything from replaced flooring and drywall to foundation damage. Flooding can also result in molding which may lead to serious health concerns.
Common Toilet Issues
Some of the most common toilet issues include:
- Constant running
- Partial flushing, or repeated flushing issues
- Infrequent leaks
- Unexpected noises
- Rust in the water or on toilet parts
- Recurring clogging
- Rocking toilet
Fixing Common Toilet Problems
Some of these problems are easy to fix. Unclogging a toilet can be as easy as plunging, particularly when the clog isn’t far down the drain. A frequently running toilet could mean that the flapper isn’t creating a seal and may need to be replaced. Unexpected noises like a whistling noise when flushing can mean a broken fill valve.
Not all fixes are quick or easy. If a clog is too deep in the drain, disassembly could be necessary. If a toilet is flushing slowly, a blocked leach field is likely the cause. A leak on the floor from a cracked toilet bowl is messy and can lead to other expensive fixes.
