Problems with your toilet may be due to a clog or due to a problem with the components of your toilet. We’ll diagnose the problems and provide fast repairs so you can get on with your important business.
It’s likely that your problems could be due to a toilet clog. You’ll know it’s a clog if everything seems to be working fine with the toilet, but the water level rises every time you flush. This means that something is stopping the toilet bowl from draining – you have a clog. Clogs may be due to the following things:
• Waste Buildup
• Beauty Products
• Sanitary Wipes
• Paper Towels
Most toilet clogs are clearable with a plunger or drain auger. However, if you are not having any luck with DIY repairs, contact Darwyn’s for fast service from a true expert.
If you know it isn’t a clog; then it must be an issue with the components of your toilet. Here’s a breakdown of what may be going wrong.
Fill Valve – This part of the toilet allows for the tank to be refilled after waste and wastewater are flushed away. There are multiple variations of this part; however, the principle remains the same. Broken fill valves are often noticeable due to the tank not refilling. This part may be repaired with a simple washer replacement, but complete replacement isn’t expensive or time-consuming.
Flush Valve – The flush valve is responsible for controlling the flushing of water and wastewater away. This valve, sometimes called a flapper, is a cheap and inexpensive fix. First, you may be able to solve the problem by adjusting the length of the chain to help it form a better seal. For corroded or damaged flush valves, a replacement is cheap and easy to DIY.
