Is there anything more upsetting than a clogged toilet? We don’t think so. Toilet repair is one of our key services.
We Provide a Full Range of Toilet Repair Services
Toilets are very durable. Many will last literally, a lifetime. It’s pretty easy to fix toilet problems on your own — and even do simple toilet tank repairs — if you’re a DIY type. Here are a few tips:
- Plungers can almost always fix a clogged toilet
- If your toilet water is constantly running, remove the tank top and see if the chain fell off or needs an adjustment
- If your toilet isn’t filling properly, see if you need to adjust the float mechanism inside the tank
If these steps don’t work, call CNJ Services.
A severely blocked toilet might need to be cleared with an auger, which is a cable we “snake” down the toilet. Sometimes the block or clog can be pushed down the drain. This is not a job everyone can do – this is where we step in and can assist.
A toilet leaking onto the floor might have a disintegrated wax seal. This requires lifting the toilet and inspecting (and probably replacing) the seal. It’s something we can do pretty quickly.
Repairing Versus Replacing a Toilet
Most people only think about replacing a toilet when they’re remodeling a bathroom. But there are other times when a new toilet is the right answer:
- The toilet is old
New toilets flush fewer gallons of water and can really save on water bills.
- Toilet repairs seem constant
At some point, there are diminishing returns on both the plumbing bills or the time you spend fixing a toilet yourself.
- Your porcelain toilet is cracked
A crack or even scratches on a porcelain toilet is a sign that the structure is weakening. Scratches or cracks inside the bowl can attract and trap bacteria. The resulting odor will be the least of your sanitary issues.
