Some Common Toilet Problems

When you think of the plumbing in your home, you may first and foremost think of the bathroom, where there are many different fixtures ready for use. When you think specifically of your bathroom plumbing system, the toilet in your home is likely what first springs to mind. The idea of living without a toilet in one’s home is pretty much unfathomable in this day and age, after all. That is exactly why encountering operational problems of any kind with one’s toilet is such an alarming situation. The moment that you suspect that there is a problem with the toilet in your bathroom, give our professional plumbers a call. We have the training, tools, and experience necessary to handle any bathroom plumbing services in Sarasota, FL that you may need.

Excessive Running

Sometimes, homeowners will convince themselves that a problem is to “minor” to prioritize. Sure, you may think, my toilet is running, but it’s just a minor annoyance. This is not really the case, though. Yes, you may be able to listen to a running toilet without it driving you nuts. You are also ignoring the issue of substantial water waste, though. If your toilet keeps running, that means that you are paying for water that you are not actually using.


Have you noticed that there is water on the floor surrounding your toilet? It could be the result of a leak, most likely at the point of some connection. You’d probably notice if there was a big crack in the porcelain, so a damaged wax ring or even a cracked gasket at the tank bolt could be to blame. If it is hot and humid, of course, it could just be the result of water condensation dripping off of your tank. You don’t want to risk damaging your floors, though, so let a professional take a look.

Partial Flushing

Is your toilet not flushing powerfully or completely? It could be due to a low water level in the tank, or simply there being too much slack in the lift chain. There could also be an improper model of a component, such as the flapper, mistakenly installed in the tank. We’ll definitely get to the bottom of the problem.
