If you want more details about the type of work we usually perform, review some of the most common toilet issues we can fix below:
- Faulty parts: If your toilet won’t stop running, it’s likely due to problems with a toilet tank component. In such cases, we can normally replace that single component.
- Leaking toilet: If your problem is a leaky toilet, a full replacement may be your only option. However, when the leak is not in the toilet but at the connections, we will repair the fixture by replacing the toilet flanges, valves, and wax rings.
- Clogged toilet: For toilets that are badly clogged, a plunger won’t be enough. In this situation, we’ll use a drain snake to remove the clog once and for all.
