Most Common Issues with Toilets in Homes

Plenty of toilet repairs are best left for the pros to handle. However, not every situation requires emergency plumbing services.

Allow us to go through a few of the typical toilet issues encountered by clients who have contacted us for ideas on how to repair toilet issues:

Moaning sounds from toilets

If you hear groaning sounds from a toilet, it could be due to a rise in water pressure, which allows a water valve to shudder or shake.

Random or constant flushing

Either of these 2 issues will potentially cause toilets to flush and begin filling on their own:

 

  • ( 1) the refill tube is too long, or
  • ( 2) it can also be a leaking flapper

 

This flushing at random leads to water damage and waste, leading to a higher monthly water service bill.

Compound flushing

Perhaps you only flush once; however, the toilet flushes two times or even 3 times. A high water level is usually the source of this issue. Changing the float control within the tank will typically repair this.

Water dripping into the bowl, or “Phantom Flushes”

A sluggish leakage from the tank into the bowl is the source of the problem here. A malfunctioning flapper or flapper seat is undoubtedly to blame.

 

Replacing a worn or damaged flapper is the best solution to avoid plumbing issues. Empty the water tank, clean and check the seat, then change the flapper.

Slow flushes

A low water level or the lift chain that connects the flush handle and the flapper valve might cause a toilet only to flush partially. Loosen the lift chain to let the flapper settle down properly inside the bowl.

Base leaks

The gasket made of wax between the drain pipeline and the base of the unit should be replaced if your toilet leaks when flushed. This procedure requires expert plumbing service.

The toilet is not flushing completely

  • Check if the lift chain has any slack, and make adjustments as needed.
  • Check for a proper water level in the tank.
  • After that, ensure that the flapper is fitted correctly and is the best size and style for your toilet.

The Bowl Empties Slow

Obstructed openings under the bowl’s surface area are the most typical cause of a slow-emptying bowl, also referred to as a poor flush. To clean out any clutter, gently jab each flush hole with a curved piece of wire.

 

If you are still unable to resolve these issues, it will be best to contact a local plumber near me.

Tips for Fixing Common Toilet Issues Yourself

A toilet consists of 2 major parts: the bowl unit, which rests on the floor, and the top storage tank that holds the water. The bowl is a solid drain piece of the fixture made from porcelain with no moving parts.

 

Few repairs involve the bowl, with only a few exceptions. On the other hand, the storage tank is where 2 important valves exist and the handle for flushing. The storage tank is where most of the toilet repairs occur.

 

You will be surprised to learn that most toilet problems are rather easy to repair without the need of an emergency plumber.

Running Toilet Repair

If you’ve tried out a new flapper to repair your running toilet and it still runs, do not give up hope. Here’s a solution that ensures it works.

 

Few home annoyances are somewhat as annoying as the sound of a continuously running toilet. If you hear your toilet filling up too often, or if you hear the constant hiss of running water, the flapper might be leaking.

 

The flapper (also known as the “flush valve seal”) is the plug that falls against the drain opening (flush valve drain seat) on the bottom of the storage tank. It holds water till the next time you flush. When flappers or flush valve seats wear, water drips out, making the water valve to open and refill the storage tank.

Replace the Flapper-toilet repair

Step 1: Changing Flapper

First, remove the old flapper and bring it with you to the hardware store or home center to get a similar one.

 

Note: Occasionally, a new flapper does not fix the problem. If you have tried changing the toilet flapper, but the toilet still runs, the flush valve seat is possibly rough or pitted.

 

You can replace the complete flush toilet flapper valve; however, it’s a big task, and it may require the experience of a plumber near me.

Step 2: Flapper Kit with Flush Seat Repairing

If changing the flapper alone didn’t work, search for a flapper set with a flush seat repair.

 

Note: You want to buy a Flush valve repair set. The set has a flapper and matching seat that you stick to the damaged seat with the adhesive supplied.

 

  • First, close the water supply to the toilet.
  • Hold the flapper open while flushing to allow the remaining water to drain from the storage tank.
  • Use a sponge to remove the water that remains entirely.
  • Follow the included directions to install the brand-new toilet flapper valve seat.
    • Pro tip: If your toilet uses 3.5 gallons or less of water per flush, you will need a set that includes a plastic cup to change the flapper’s time to stay open. If your toilet utilizes more than this, eliminate the timing cup.
      Set up the brand-new flapper.
  • With the flapper down, readjust the chain length, so it’s somewhat relaxed.
  • Turn on the water to check the flush.

 

Note: You might have to fiddle with the chain lenth to get the flapper functioning correctly.

When finished, remove the excess chain to prevent it from getting stuck under the flapper.

Broken Toilet Handle

If wiggling the toilet handle does not stop your toilet from running, any of these basic fixes possibly will.

 

A toilet handle is a primary device– just a few things can malfunction. The solution is much easier than you think.

loose-toilet-handle

Step 1: Loose Handle

If the handle is loose, tighten up the nut and washer inside the storage tank with a pair of pliers. Do not overtighten the nut; you might strip the threads or, even worse, damage the porcelain storage tank.

 

If the handle sticks in the down flush position, it might not be installed properly. Loosen the nut washer, reposition the handle to align with the top side of the storage tank, and re-tighten the nut.

toilet-handle-stripped-threads

Step 2: Stripped Threads

If the nut does not tighten up or keeps coming loose, it’s a sign that the nut threads are stripped. For a quick repair, cover the threads on the handle screw with “plumber’s tape” or electrical tape. Then move the washer and nut back on and tighten up the nut.

It is often best to replace the toilet handle if the threads are too damaged or damaged.

toilet-handle-Handle-Arm

Step 3: Handle Arm

  • Look into the handle arm for issues, splits, or breaks.
  • If there are issues, replace the complete handle and arm assembly.
    • Pro tip: Remember where your handle mounts on the storage tank before buying a replacement handle. There are numerous kinds: front position left, front position right, front position universal, and side position.
toilet-handle-The-Chain

Tip 4: The Chain

Suppose the handle appears to be running correctly, yet the toilet still does not flush. In that case, the chain attaching the handle arm to the flapper could be detached or damaged.

    • Pro Tip: Before working on the chain, empty the storage tank, shut off the water valve, and pull up on the flapper, allowing the water to drain.

 

  • If the chain detaches from the handle arm, reconnect the chain from the flapper into the holes on the handle arm, utilizing the chain hook.
  • Leave a little slack in the chain.
  • If the chain detaches from the flapper, reconnect the chain to the flapper.
  • If the chain or the flapper is defective, replace it.

Toilet Buying Tips

Fed up with your old, dripping, water hog of a toilet and wish to purchase a new one? Today you’ll find water-efficient toilets with an array of options. We offer these ideas for the next time you go toilet shopping.

Insulated tank-toilet-installation

Insulated storage tank

If summer seasons are moist where you live, and you do not have a/c, you’ve possibly noticed your toilet “sweating” quite a bit. Condensation forming on the outside of a toilet can drip down, making a water mess and even rotting your floor.

 

Toilets today are made available with insulated storage tanks to prevent condensation issues. Consider this option if you have “sweating toilet” problems in your house.

Bowl height-toilet-installation

Bowl height

Bowl height is the distance from the floor to the top of the toilet bowl’s rim– the standard height for toilets is 14 to 15 inches. Yet today, you’ll find toilets 16 to 18 inches high, commonly called “comfort level” or “ADA height” or something similar.

 

The added heights offered make getting on and off the toilet much more accessible and comfortable for many people, especially aging individuals. Toilets designed for kid heights of 10 to 14 inches are also available.

One-piece vs. two-piece-toilet-installation

One-piece vs. two-piece

A two-piece toilet (a separate storage tank and bowl) is the most common style in homes. Yet one-piece styles are offered. Two-piece toilets are usually less expensive; one-piece toilets often have shorter tank and are much easier to clean up.

 

One-piece toilets are the choice of many homeowners for their smooth, streamlined appeal.

Cost-toilet-installation

Cost

When it pertains to toilets, expensive does not instantly suggest better efficiency. Several of the best models we have tested were reasonably cost-effective and performed well. In comparison, more expensive ones were only marginal efficient.

Color

Fashion is fickle. Stick to a white or a beige color toilet to avoid being stuck to a color you’ll dislike a few years later on.

Flush-handle location-toilet-installation

Flush-handle location

If you have a large bathroom and have plenty of room above or beside your toilet, this perhaps isn’t all that crucial. Be sure to pick a toilet with a top handle or one opposite the wall if the room is limited.

 

Purchasing a proper toilet is very important, so spare yourself a return trip to the shop and pay close attention.

Rough-in-toilet-installation

Rough-in

“Rough-in” measurement is the distance between the flange screws that secure the toilet bowl to the floor and the wall surface behind the toilet. Twelve-inch “rough-ins” are the most common; nonetheless, in some older houses, you might have 10-in. or 14-in. “rough-ins.”

 

Pro Tip: Make sure to measure your “rough-in” and account for the thickness of your baseboard, paneling, or floor tile before you go toilet shopping.

Bowl design

Many toilets marketed today have either round-front bowls or elongated-front bowls. Round-front bowls are great if the area is snug. Elongated bowls have a more extended rim– as much as 2 in. longer– and require more room.

 

On the plus side, elongated bowls are typically much comfier for adult use and help increase health. Evaluate supplier websites for bowl measurements, and measure your area before picking the bowl design.

Footprint-toilet-installation

Footprint

If you install a new toilet with a smaller storage tank, you may have to paint the part of the wall surface area covered by the old toilet storage tank.

 

If your old toilet had a big footprint (the base covers a big floor area), you might have to patch and fix the floor part surrounded by the old toilet. You might also have to replace the entire floor before installing a new toilet with a smaller footprint.
