How to Know if You Need Toilet Repair

How to Know if You Need Toilet RepairA broken toilet can make domestic life miserable, especially if there's only one bathroom in the home. If it's a problem that you can't easily fix, then you'll want to promptly call in a reputable plumber who will efficiently repair your toilet. The sooner your toilet is repaired, the sooner life will get back to comfortable normalcy. Here's a look at six common signs that you need toilet repair.

Water Accumulating at Toilet's Base

This is a sign of a leak at the seal. You may be able to take care of this issue by simply tightening the bolts that hold the toilet to the floor. However, if that doesn't do the trick, then you might need to install a new wax ring that will completely seal the connection between the toilet and drain pipe.

Crack in Bowl or Tank

If the crack is smaller than 1/16th of an inch, then there's a good chance it can be fixed with plumber's epoxy. Oftentimes, larger cracks necessitate toilet replacement.

Tank or Bowl Doesn't Refill

The tank or bowl may not properly refill if there's a problem with the fill valve. This issue usually requires the valve to be replaced.

Continues to Run

If your toilet continuously runs, then the flapper valve might need to be adjusted. If that doesn't remedy the problem, then you'll likely need to replace the flapper.

Flushes Very Little

Your flushing mechanism could need repair if your toilet is only flushing a small amount at a time.


If the rust is limited to a small area, then you can look into just replacing that part of the toilet. When rust is more broadly present, the toilet will likely need to be replaced.
