A toilet is a key feature of any properly functioning house. However, toilets don’t last forever and can experience problems at any point in time. This is why having access to toilet repair and installation services is so important.
Hutchinson provides these services. Our staff of professional plumbers can handle all sorts of toilet repair and installation situations. Whether you need an emergency fix for a toilet with serious problems or just want to update your plumbing fixtures, we can provide what you need.
Toilet repair isn’t something to wait around for. If a toilet is constantly running or is leaking, it will waste water and drive up your utility bills. If it is not working entirely, then it is removing a key function from your house and will be a major inconvenience.
However, toilet repair is complicated, and if done incorrectly, it can lead to some major problems. This is why it is best left to professionals like those at Hutchinson Plumbing. Professionals like us can easily repair a leak, stop an overflowing toilet, get a toilet’s valves working again, or handle any other issue that may arise.
Toilet Installation Replacement Services
In some cases, toilet repair isn’t an option. The toilet may be so damaged that it can’t be repaired or so damaged that repairing it will cost more than just getting a new toilet. In these cases, replacement services are necessary.
This is another matter best left to professionals, as it involves completely disconnecting a toilet and installing a new one. If mistakes are made during the installation process, it could impact the way the toilet functions for the rest of its life. However, the professional plumbers at Hutchinson have dealt with more toilet installations than we can count. By now, we have the process down to a science and can do it without making a single mistake.
There are also times when general toilet installation and replacement are necessary, even when the current toilet is functioning just fine. If you are redoing the bathroom, you may want a toilet that matches the look of the new room better. If you are looking to save money and go green, you may want to upgrade your toilet for a model that saves water. Finally, if you’re expanding the house by putting in a new bathroom, you will need to install a toilet when you do. In any of these situations, professionals like those at Hutchinson can help.
Clogged Toilet Repair Services
Most of the time, unclogging a clogged toilet is just a matter of working at it with a plunger. However, it isn’t always as easy as this. Some serious clogs won’t come out with a simple plunger, no matter how hard you try.
In these cases, more intense equipment is needed. The professional plumbers at Hutchinson have access to this equipment. At Hutchinson, we have the advanced tools required to eliminate even the most persistent clogs. This allows us to get your clogged toilet back to normal in no time at all.
Signs Your Toilet Needs Repair or Replacement
If a toilet stops working completely, it obviously needs repair or replacement. However, there are plenty of situations that exist alongside this one. Toilets often have problems that require addressing that aren’t as obvious as a complete breakdown.
In these cases, you have to look out for the signs. These will let you know if and when repair and replacement services are necessary.
These signs include:
- The toilet doesn’t flush right: If the toilet flushes slower than normal, gives a weaker flush, or doesn’t seem to clear with each flush, it may be a sign that something is wrong.
- The toilet is regularly running or won’t stop running: A toilet should run until it fills with water, but this shouldn’t be a constant or lengthy process. If it is, something may be wrong with the toilet’s seal preventing it from working right.
- The toilet doesn’t flush well: This can be caused by a number of different issues. Thus, fixing this problem is best done by professionals.
- The toilet regularly clogs: A clog is usually a minor problem that happens every once in a while. If it happens more frequently than this, something more serious is going on.
- The toilet leaks or is surrounded by water: Both of these are signs that the toilet is not holding onto water well. This needs to be fixed immediately, or water damage could occur.
- The metal around the toilet is rusted: Toilets usually have some metal pieces, typically around the base or around the pipes connecting to the toilet. If these are starting to rust, they may need to be replaced before they become a problem.
Toilet Maintenance Tips
Unfortunately, many toilet problems are caused by homeowners failing to maintain the toilet properly. Fortunately, this means these are problems that can be addressed.
The biggest tip in this regard is to only flush toilet paper down the toilet. Everything else, including wipes that claim to be flushable, should stay away from the toilet.
Another maintenance tip is to check for leaks. Condensation and leaks can both cause water to gather around the toilet. To check if it is a leak, simply add food coloring to the water in the toilet. Then, wait a bit and check the water outside of it. If it is the same color, there is a leak.
On top of this, it is important to stay on top of any signs that something is wrong. If you notice something, you should take steps to fix it by calling professionals instead of waiting for the problem to get worse.
