Repairing Complex Toilet Issues in San Mateo County
Having a toilet that is out of commission is a major issue, making it impossible to function throughout the day normally. As soon as it’s clear your toilet is in trouble, make a call to One Source Plumbing. With our prompt toilet repair service in San Francisco, we’ll have that commode fixed in no time.
What to Do When Experiencing a Clogged Toilet
If a toilet is only facing a minor clog, this issue can often be resolved without much trouble. All that a homeowner needs to do in the case of a small blockage is use a plunger. Putting the plunger across the exit drain and forcefully pressing the hole will increase of pressure of the seal. This tight seal will make water rush in two directions, forcing the clog to loosen.
However, not all clogs are so easy to remove. For instance, if there is too much toilet paper or paper towels in the drain, the clog may be too sodden and heavy to bring up. Plunging may only remove bits and pieces of the paper without loosening the whole blockage. Alternatively, if the object is oddly shaped, such as a toy that a toddler has flushed, it may be firmly wedged. In scenarios like this, it is just better to reach out to a professional to have the toilet fixed. When residents come to us for help, they know that One Source Plumbing will fully handle their plumbing issues.
When to Have a Toilet Repaired
Although toilet clogs are a major problem, they are by no means the only cause for concern. Other problems in a toilet’s structure will not only ruin its appearance but affect its functionality.
It is time to call a plumber for a toilet whenever:
- The basin is visibly cracked – Even if it is not leaking, a cracked toilet bowl is never a good sign. In addition to looking unpleasant, this bowl now longer has its original strong integrity.
- There are strange sounds of gurgling and sucking – Keep an eye out for these noises coming from both the toilet as well as other fixtures. Showers, sinks, and tubs are highly prone to making these sounds.
- Clogging has been occurring repeatedly – Facing a minor clog once in a while is not a big issue. However, when there has been a series of clogs, this indicates that the flush pipe or flush cone has been damaged. These parts should be replaced before they lead to an even bigger mess.
The easiest and most reliable way of fixing a toilet is just by getting in touch with a team of professional plumbers. Here at One Source Plumbing, we can assess the toilet and see what needs a few tweaks before arranging for total replacements.
