Signs that You Need Toilet Repairs in a Home

A toilet is probably one of the most important installations in your home and it’s also one that sees a significant amount of wear & tear on a daily basis. These fittings are something we don’t focus on too much until something goes wrong with them; most toilet malfunctions or breakdowns seem sudden but they always show some warning signs such as:

  • Leaking Toilet – A leaking toilet can be a nuisance as it can result in significant amounts of water wastage. In fact, the water will simply continue leaking till the problem gets fixed. Not only is the leaky toilet an annoyance point, but it results in inflated water bills and the problem can also escalate over time and result in more expensive repairs down the line.
  • Water on the bathroom floor– This is a sure shot sign of a toilet leak and needs to be addressed immediately. If you defer fixing the problem, the water will eventually seep past the tiling and reach the sub-flooring.
  • The toilet doesn’t flush– If the toilet doesn’t flush at all, it means the flush tank mechanism needs to be inspected and fixed.
  • Toilet doesn’t always flush completely– This generally happens because the flush’s lift chain slackens. In some cases, it’s caused by incorrect flapper installation or low water level in the tank.
  • Slow-filling toilet– This occurs when the toilet doesn’t receive sufficient amounts of water. In this case the valve may require replacement and the actual water supply pressure would have to be checked as well.

While you may be able to fix some of these problems yourself, in most instances its best to hire the services of a licensed plumber in Sydney to fix toilet leaks and related problems.

Different toilet components that may require fixing

Since toilets have a number of small moving components most of which are made either or rubber or plastic, they do suffer a certain amount of deterioration over time. Most of these parts are also in contact with water almost constantly and can wear out over time. Some of the common toilet parts that can wear out include:

  • Water inlet pipes
  • Flush pipe rubbers
  • Ball valve
  • Flapper valve
  • Flusher chain
  • Base rubber of the flushing mechanism
  • Other

Your toilet is dependent on these different parts to function well. And when any of these fail that can result in leaks and impede flushes. In case of severe toilet leaks and problems, you would need to call in a skilled plumber to attend to the problem without delay. This is where we at SPS Plumbers come into the picture.

Why Hire a Professional Plumber For Tap Repairs?

Leaking taps can be extremely annoying, but that isn’t the only problem they cause. If ignored for too long, they can easily escalate your water bills. Many homeowners feel that fixing a tap leak is a very easy job and the fact is that it isn’t very challenging; but it needs to be done right or it can make the situation worse. We at SPS Plumbers have seen numerous DIY tap repair jobs gone horribly wrong. This is primarily because while tap washer replacement is fairly simple, re-positioning the tap is where the problems begin.

It’s far better to call in experts like us to attend to all your dripping tap repairs in Sydney. A dripping tap is quite a common compliant and we understand the annoyance it causes. This is why we provide a prompt response and efficient services to get your tap fixed within the shortest possible time. Even a very slow drip on taps can result in a significant amount of water wastage, so don’t delay in calling us in case you have any dripping or leaky taps in your home or commercial premises.

Our plumber will check the dripping tap and inspect the washer and seal. In most cases, the washer is the culprit, and when it begins to degrade and crack, it allows water to pass. If you leave the problem unattended, that will only result in a bigger leak and more water wastage. Our licensed plumbers in Sydney are experts in fixing dripping and leaking taps.

Tap repairs or replacement?

When they visit your home or commercial premises for the tap repair work, they will also check the condition of the tap itself. If the fixture is very old, they will inform you about it and may recommend that you get the entire tap replaced if necessary. In some cases, a tap replacement proves to be more cost-effective than a tap repair in the long term.

We always turn up on time, do an efficient and fast job and tidy up after ourselves. For a prompt response and competitive tap repair costs, you can’t go wrong with calling SPS Plumbers.
