COMMON TOILET PLUMBING PROBLEMS
These are the most common toilet plumbing problems homeowners and business owners in Phoenix, Mesa, Gilbert, Scottsdale, Chandler experience.
You may have a first generation 1.6-gallon toilet that was destined to fail. Just look inside of the tank for a manufacturing date. If it was made between January 1994 – 1997, this could be your issue. No matter what you do, it won’t flush correctly.
If your toilet was manufactured in 1994 or before then, then you have deposits in the angled rim swirl holes or syphon jet hole. You can try to clean with wooden sticks and larger toothpicks, but muriatic acid will really do the job. Mix 1-part acid to 10 parts water. Using a funnel, pour half of the solution down the overflow tube in the tank. You should hear fizzing. Be aware of the fumes that comes from this solution. Open a window, run the fan in the bathroom, etc. Don’t get this stuff on you, on your clothes, carpeting, in your eyes, etc. It won’t hurt the toilet. If you have a septic system, don’t do this! The only way to clean your toilet is to disassemble it and do it outside.
Let the acid sit for 30 minutes. Pour the rest of the solution down the overflow tube. You will need to wait for 30 more minutes and then you can flush the toilet. You will see an improvement.
Strong yet partial flush
Your flapper valve could be full of water and it has begun to drop too fast. Watch the flapper valve when you flush. It needs to stay up at least 80% of the water being removed. If it drops quicker than that, put in a new flapper valve.
This is where the tank fills up with water like it was just flushed. It means that the tank is leaking water. The food color dye test will confirm. Add food coloring to the tank after all the water stopped running. After 10 minutes, look at the bowl to see if is colored. If it is, replace the flapper valve completely.
Bowl water level has dropped
You flush and everything is good. After a bit the water has left the bowl. Two things could be wrong. Water could be siphoned from the bowl due to a partial clog in the colon of the bowl. To see if something is causing the drainage, empty the bowl of water and use a flashlight and a mirror to look in the colon of the toilet.
In some cases, the bowl may be cracked in the interior colon or piping. This can be fixed by installing a new bowl.
The water level for your tank is too high. Lower the level for improvement.
Whistling as the tank fills
You may have an old ball cock valve that has a ball float on the end of the rod. The ball will begin to float higher as it starts to close the fill valve which causes vibrations and noise. Fill valves will stay open until the tank is filled. They are great and inexpensive.
Slow Tank Filling
This could be due to the shut off valve being partially closed. A plumber or owner may have closed the flow for a reason.
Dripping and tank fill
Once the tank has filled, you may hear dripping. Then the tank fills with water again, and then it drips. This could be a syphon issue caused by installation of a new fill valve. When you look, there will be a small, yet flexible tube that will run from overflow tube to the valve.
When the tank begins to fill, water goes through the tube. It is used to refill the toilet since water is lost during the flush. If the tube drops into the overflow tube it could cause water syphoning. New toilet fill valves will have a clip that is attached to the overflow tube and points the water flow down without having the tube go in the tube.
This could be due to a partial clog or a clog downstream. Fill a 5-gallon bucket and pour it into the toilet as fast a you can without splashing. If the water goes down fast, then it’s not clogged. If water actually backs up into the bowl, and then drains slowly, it’s a clog.
Clogged toilets are one of the most common bathroom plumbing problems. Most toilet clogs can be repaired with a plunger but not every clog is created equal. Sometimes homeowners flush too much toilet paper or other items that get stuck in the toilet drain. When this happens, calling a licensed plumber is your only option.
Suction sounds from the sink and tub
You flush and then there are gurgling sounds from your sink or tub. This means the vent pipe has become clogged. It could have been anything in the rooftop vent pipe. Drop a small flashlight attached to a strong wire or string down the vent. Look for a clog. Run a garden hose of water down the rooftop vent pipe to clear the clog. Ensure that you have spotters inside the house who are checking for leaks. You may need to call a professional to fix the issue.
