Toilet repair: We don’t think about it until something major happens, and if you’re reading this blog, you’re probably at the end of your rope! A constantly clogging toilet is nothing short of exasperating—and potentially gross. Drop P&D Mechanical a line quickly and we’ll get your water piping back on track in no time.
While you wait, here are a few reasons your toilet could work only intermittently. Knowing the potential whys behind the problem will help ease your mind if anything!
Flushing Too Much Stuff Toilets Can’t Deal With
Toilets are only meant to serve their intended purpose, and because we all know what that intended purpose is, we’ll tell you what it isn’t: to be a garbage disposal. You’d be surprised at what you can’t actually throw into this area of your plumbing work; in fact, we’ve written a whole blog on “Three Surprising Things you Shouldn’t Flush Down Your Toilet.”
Regardless, your plumbing work isn’t designed to handle
● Baby wipes
● Paper towels
● That disgusting wad of hair you always find in the shower
If you’ve been tossing these into the porcelain bowl and now it’s refusing its duty, you could have a clog on your hands—one that’s lower down in the pipes.
Your Fill Valve is Finicky
Your fill valve is the part of the toilet that allows its holding tank to refill after a flush so that it’s ready to go the next time you need to do the same. If the fill valve is malfunctioning, your toilet will be left without enough water to properly flush—which will cause a clog no matter how old or new your toilet is.
Your Toilet Is Old
Toilets are of a hardy sort, but nothing lasts forever, and modern innovation has made stronger toilets that work much more efficiently and flush with greater pressure. If your toilet is getting up there in decades, it might just not be cut out for its line of work anymore. Consider, metaphorically speaking, hiring a younger replacement.
