When a toilet breaks or has problems operating correctly, it becomes unusable. An inconvenience for some, this creates a major problem in certain households – especially those with only one bathroom.

When our plumbers are on the way, protect your home by shutting off the water supply valve that feeds water to your toilet. The shutoff valve is most likely installed on the wall behind or next to the toilet bowl and below the toilet tank. Locate the knob and rotate in clockwise to stop the flow of water. If it is difficult to turn, WD-40 can be used to loosen it – but do not force the knob if it is stuck. If you are unable to turn off the shutoff valve, you need to report this issue to your plumber as well. The shutoff valve needs to be replaced so you have the ability to cut water supply whenever a toilet problem may occur in the future.

Signs Indicating a Need for Toilet Repair

There are many parts to a toilet that are prone to damage or wear over the years, which can cause the fixture to leak or stop working correctly. The signs below are commonly seen when toilets require professional attention for repairs – if you notice any of these issues, call Jarboe’s to schedule service right away.

  • Water level in the tank takes a long time to increase
  • The toilet must work for awhile to flush
  • The toilet tank doesn’t fully fill after a flush
  • The toilet has a weak flush or incomplete flush
  • A dripping sound occurs after a flush
  • A gurgling sound comes from the sink or tub during a flush
  • Toilet bowl has a low water level
  • Toilet flushes twice in a row
  • A whistling sound occurs while the toilet tank fills
  • The water level in the bowl increases to the point of overflow

Common Toilet Repairs and Causes for Replacement

Some toilet problems require just a simple fix replacing parts of the toilet, while others are beyond repair altogether. When repairs are not appropriate, the entire toilet must be replaced. Our Louisville plumbers commonly encounter these issues needing repair or replacement.

  • When water leaks appear at the base of a toilet, the wax ring is probably in need or replacement. A moving base and wobbling are also signs of this issue. The wax ring should be repaired right away to avoid water damage to the surrounding floors.
  • If you have a running toilet that never seems to stop, parts in toilet tanks may not be operating properly. If it sounds like the toilet flushes yet no one is using it, a busted flapper or flush valve may be keeping water levels too low, leading a flush to occur. Or, the fill valve may fill up the tank, yet water drips continuously into the bowl. A running toilet is no issue you want to overlook, as it wastes large volumes of water and can cause damage to the septic system.
  • When toilets just don’t flush like they used to, it may be more beneficial to replace them rather than attempt repairs. Old models use far more water and are very wasteful, while new ones make great savings in terms of household water consumption.

Installing New Toilets in Louisville Homes

If your toilets were made before 1980, you’re sitting atop a major water waster every time you use the restroom. Toilets made before 1980 can require up to 7 gallons of water to perform a flush! The standard for new toilets is no more than 1.6 gallons per flush, and there are even more efficient options available at 1.28 gallons per flush. Upgrading toilets can save Louisville homeowners tens of thousands of gallons of water each year, depending on the number of fixtures being upgraded.
