Diagnosis - identify what is wrong
Diagnosis is the first step, as always, and it helps to be able to understand what is going wrong with your toilet. One of the first steps in diagnosis is finding out what type of problem your toilet is having.
Toilet issues can generally be put into a few different groupings: the blocked toilet; the constantly running toilet; the not properly flushing toilet; and the slow filling toilet. Naturally, there are other areas where problems can occur, but these are by far the most common.
The blocked toilet is probably the most common problem and the team at Fallon Solutions are experts at unblocking. Looking at the design of the average toilet, it is not surprising that it gets blocked. The opening goes from circular to oval and constricts and bends. Generally, the blockage can be solved with a plunger but often it has gone beyond the power of the plunger and requires an auger.
Is your toilet running water?
The constantly running toilet is an irritant. It still works, but it is wasting water and it is never silent. This is generally caused by a problem with the ballcock, float cup, or a defective fill valve seal. Don’t let your toilet constantly run. Not only are you costing yourself more money, you are wasting water.
Is your toilet not flushing?
If your toilet is not properly flushing, this can be unsightly, smelly, and annoying. Often this happens with more modern ‘low flow’ toilets. Instead of taking less water, they need to be flushed multiple times. If you have an older toilet then the issue is probably with a clogged bowl entry. The water is not flowing from the cistern to the bowl properly, resulting in a weak flush.
Is your toilet slow to fill?
Last up, the slow filler. Generally speaking, this is caused by the fill valve getting clogged, although there may be issues further down the line as well. The team at Fallon Solutions will be able to diagnose whether the issue is within the toilet itself or within your house’s internal plumbing.
