Signs Your Toilet Is Having Problems

Generally, modern toilets require minimal maintenance. From time to time, small issues may present themselves and occasionally major problems can appear. What is important to understand about your toilet is that toilet symptoms are indicators that your toilet isn’t functioning properly. Some of the most common toilet symptoms to look out for include:

Continuous Flow

If your toilet is continuously flowing, that is a sign that there is a problem with either your tank or within the toilet pipes. If you hear the sound of running water, that is more than an irritable noise that will eventually go away, it means there may be a water leak somewhere. Sometimes it’s as easy of a fix as properly connecting your tank flapper, which is what is responsible for the continuous flow. This problem isn’t incredibly harmful, but it can waste hundreds of gallons of water per day. However, if you choose to ignore this issue, the continuous flow can wear down the toilet’s parts, which results in reduced effectiveness of the mechanical pieces.

Toilet Leak

Water leaks or pools of water that accumulate around your toilet can be a sign of damage and costly repairs. Continuous flows or a low flow after flushing can be signs that you have a water leak. Other signs of toilet leaks include a musty smell, pools of water around the base of the toilet, and a toilet bowl that runs out of water. All plumbing fixtures that have leaks show pools of water around the appliance, leading to water damage. Don’t ignore a toilet leak, even a small one.

Frequent Backups

Common reasons for toilet clogs and backups are because of too much toilet paper being flushed down the toilet or an unusually large amount of solid waste. These clogs can be easily remedied with plunging. When you start to experience clogs more often, that signifies that there is another problem that needs to be addressed. These problems can be related to your sewer lines or your septic and sewer systems. Don’t ignore frequent clogs nor should you try to solve them with commercial drain cleaning products. When you experience these issues, contact your experienced plumbers at Culler Plumbing Services.

Toilet Rules

Toilets are low maintenance, but with the right care, they can last problem-free for years. In order to help promote the health and sustainability of your toilet and plumbing system, remember these toilet rules.

  • Only flush down liquids, solid waste, and toilet paper.
  • Never flush paper towels, condoms, and feminine hygiene products.
  • Never flush chemicals, foreign objects, and medications.
  • Make sure that waste goes down when you flush, use the plunger if necessary.
  • Keep the toilet clean.
  • Don’t put anything in your tank or toilet bowl.

If you follow these toilet rules, it can have a major impact on the performance and lifespan of your toilet. For more tips about toilet care, check out our blog!

What All Homes Should Have

As we have said before, toilets are low maintenance, but they do have certain flaws. To help you save money, time, and avoid a call to your local plumber, it is in your interests to keep these toilet tools nearby.

Plunger – You should have a toilet plunger and a standard plunger for sinks and bathtubs. Toilet plungers are efficient at resolving minor toilet clogs and help you avoid the needs of a plumber. 

Plumbing Putty – Plumbing putty can be useful for DIY projects and can also be useful to address small leaks. Don’t stall contacting your plumber for plumbing leaks, but plumbing putty can be the difference between a regular scheduled service and an emergency service.

Adjustable Pipe Wrench – Pipe wrenches are specifically designed to grip pipes that allow for steady tightening. Be careful how tight you tighten these pipes because it could result in leaks. Plumbing tape can be used on threaded pipes to reduce the risk of leaks.
