Signs Your Toilet Needs Repair

Call us at Great Dane Heating, Cooling, Electrical, & Plumbing when your toilet leaks, overflows; does not flush, barely flushes, or continues running. We will address your plumbing issue immediately because we know how inconvenient a malfunctioning toilet can be.

When you notice these signs, your toilet needs attention:

  • If flushing seems weak and slow and does not clear the bowl's contents, the rim jets—tiny holes under the toilet rim—may be clogged.
  • The siphon hole on the bottom of the bowl may also be corroded with mineral buildup. The toilet float inside your tank may need adjustment.
  • Water around the bottom of the toilet indicates a leak from a broken seal or cracks in the porcelain.
  • If you need to jiggle the handle, your toilet may need a new flapper valve.
  • The fill valve may be worn if the toilet bowl does not fill after flushing.
  • An overflowing toilet typically indicates a clog.

Before beginning any job, we discuss repair and replacement options. We tailor our recommendations to your specific needs and budget. We make our financing options as convenient as possible.

You can count on Great Dane Plumbing to provide affordable, quality repairs and installations.

Installing a New Toilet

How do you know when it is time to replace your toilet?

Age is a significant factor when weighing repairs versus replacement. Your toilet may continue to operate after 20 years, but it may also waste water and cost you money.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) says toilets are the main source of water use in homes. Older, inefficient toilets that use more than six gallons per flush are a significant source of wasted water.

Our plumbing pros at Great Dane Heating, Cooling, Electrical, & Plumbing can help you choose a quality toilet with a strong flush and water-saving efficiency. Replacing your old toilet is a cost-effective alternative to frequent repairs.

Other signs you should consider replacement:

• Cracked porcelain leads to leaks.
• If your tank leaks, consider replacing the entire toilet. It makes better financial sense. • An older toilet that clogs frequently is ready for replacement.

Toilet Maintenance Tips

You can prevent common toilet problems by making maintenance a habit in your Clinton Township, MI, home. Avoid flushing wipes, feminine hygiene products, cotton swabs, and other paper items into your plumbing system, even if the labeling claims they are flushable. They are likely to clog your toilet or pipes.

Take a close look at your toilet. Inspect for wet areas or water accumulation at its base, indicating a leak. Add a few drops of food coloring to your tank, wait about 15 to 30 minutes, and check the bowl. If the bowl contains colored water, your tank is leaking.

Test the valve that shuts off the water to your toilet. If it is rusty or resists movement, consider replacing it.
