Clogged Toilets

Clogged toilets are often the result of hair buildup, tissues, or some other item that doesn’t belong in the toilet. Using a plunger may provide a temporary fix, but if the clogs reoccur it’s time to call Ryan Plumbing.

Leaking Toilets

A leaking toilet is the most common cause of high water bills. Watch for these signs of toilet leaks:
• The toilet makes noise while not in use.
• There’s noticeable leaking at the toilet base.
• You have to jiggle the handle to make your toilet stop running.
• Water runs over the top of the overflow pipe (pipe in the middle of the tank) or trickles down sides of toilet bowl long after it has been flushed.
• You observe phantom flushes (the toilet turns on the water for 15 seconds without the handle being pushed).

Here’s how you can test for toilet leaks:

A simple test involves food coloring. Remove any bowl cleaners that color the water so you can begin the test with clear water. Also make sure no one uses the bowl while you perform the test.

Test the flush valve mechanism by putting a few drops of food coloring in the tank. Check the bowl after 15 minutes. If the dyed tank water is now in the toilet bowl, your toilet is leaking.

The two most common culprits are the flapper or refill valve. Stop wasting water and running up your bill; call us to replace or fix the problem.
