Toilet repair and DIY help ideas
Toilet Repair in Kansas City
A noisy toilet that constantly runs, is slow to fill, or won’t flush completely or at all is more than just bothersome. Poorly functioning toilets waste tremendous amounts of water (not to mention money) and can embarrass you or your guests. There are a few simple do it yourself (DIY) Toilet Repair ideas we recommend attempting, but if they fail Reddi Services is prepared and ready to step in to make any needed adjustments, repairs, or even replacements.
Simple Do-It-Yourself Ideas
- A simple clog can be resolved with gentle use of a plunger — if it fails to resolve, do not use force or use a foreign object to dislodge the clog. Call Reddi Services for help.
- Constant running may be due to a faulty valve or flapper, or the floater arm may need adjusting — if those simple fixes have been tried, a Reddi Services plumber can troubleshoot the problem and replace worn out parts.
- Beware of harsh chemicals. Some cleaners, especially those with bleach, prematurely wear out the parts of the fixture. If there is etching or extensive damage, the toilet may need replacing.
When the time comes to replace a toilet, calling a professional is the best choice. Selecting an appropriate model and installing a new toilet is more complicated than fitting a new wax ring and bolting it to the floor. There are measurements to be made, analysis of property use, removal of the old toilet and any seals and debris, leveling the new fixture, properly sealing and bolting it, and reconnecting the water supply to consider. An experienced Reddi Services plumber knows the pitfalls of toilet installation and knows how to avoid costly mistakes. Additionally, our plumbers can make simple recommendations to keep your toilet in good working order.
