The Common Causes of a Leaky Toilet

Leaky toilets can result from various problems, each requiring a specific approach to repair:

  • Faulty Flapper or Valve Seal: A common cause of leaks inside the toilet tank, leading to water wastage and increased bills.
  • Loose or Worn Out Connection Bolts: These can lead to water leaking onto the floor.
  • Cracked Tank or Bowl: Even small cracks can cause significant leakage and may require a toilet replacement.
  • Worn Out Wax Ring: The wax ring seals the connection between the toilet base and the drain. Over time, it can deteriorate, leading to leaks at the base.

Diagnosing a Leaky Toilet

Identifying the source of the leak is the first step in resolving the issue. Here’s what to look for:

  • Constant Running Water: Indicates an issue with the tank’s internal components.
  • Water on the Floor Around the Toilet: This could be due to a faulty wax ring, loose bolts, or cracks in the tank or bowl.
  • Intermittent Leaking: Can be related to fluctuations in water pressure or partial blockages.

Denver Emergency Plumbing’s Approach to Fixing Leaky Toilets

  • Thorough Inspection: Our skilled technicians will diagnose the source of the leak, whether it’s from the tank, base, or a connection point.
  • Precision Repairs: From replacing the flapper or valve seal, tightening bolts, to resealing the toilet base, we ensure each repair is done with accuracy and efficiency.
  • Quality Replacement Parts: We use high-grade materials and parts for durable repairs.
  • Testing and Verification: After the repair, we test the toilet to ensure the leak has been completely fixed and the toilet functions properly.

When to Consider Toilet Replacement

In cases where the toilet is severely damaged or constantly needing repairs, replacement might be a more cost-effective and long-term solution. We provide expert advice on choosing and installing a new toilet that meets your needs and budget.

Preventative Maintenance Tips

  • Regularly check the toilet’s internal components for wear and tear.
