Assessing Common Toilet Issues
While a clogged toilet is one of the most common plumbing issues, other fixes may be needed throughout the lifespan of your fixture. If you suspect possible toilet troubles, don’t expect them to spontaneously work themselves out. Chances are a quick fix is all that’s needed to remedy the issue and prevent it from causing major damage. These telltale toilet issues should never go ignored:
- Continuous run times
- Dripping or whistling sounds
- Water on the floor near the base
- Toilet overflowing
- Slow flushing
- Bubbling water
- Double flushing
- Low water level in the bowl
- Tub and sink gurgle when you flush
- Ghost flushing

Whether it’s tracking and repairing leaks or removing clogs, our skilled technicians are well equipped to diagnose and take care of any plumbing problems that arise.
