Common Toilet Problems

Outdated toilets cause many problems. Toilets made before 1994 use 3.5 gallons of water per flush. This wastes a lot of water and increases your water bill. Toilets created right after 1994, on the other hand, have a weak flush and are prone to clogs. This was the year Congress decided to eliminate water waste by requiring toilets to use only 1.6 gallons per flush. The first models to comply do not work efficiently and it is time to upgrade. Modern toilets provide a strong flush and even feature models that have a double flush options for liquid and solid waste, conserving even more water.
Not only can upgrading save you money on your water bill but it can also add aesthetic value to your bathroom. Keep in mind that not all toilets are the same. There are several types of toilets available including gravity flush toilets, pressure-assisted toilets, and vacuum-assisted. Be sure that your hired technician is skilled with all three types, as they require different repair methods. The most common problems observed include:
  • Obstruction
  • Weak Flush
  • Ghost Flusher
  • Double flusher
  • Leaking Base
  • Rotted/water damaged flooring underneath the toilet

Ghost Flusher

One of the most startling  toilet problems is the ghost flusher. This problem causes the toilet to flush on its own. This problem is the result of a leaking, worn, or corroded flapper. The problem may also be in a refill tube that is too large. When the flapper is damaged it allows water to slowly drain out of the tank and  into the bowl activating the fill valve.

Double Flusher and Partial Flusher

If you have to flush your toilet twice for it to flush properly your toilet’s water level must be adjusted. Partial flushes are caused by waterlogged flapper valves that close too quickly.  Other sources of this obnoxious problem can be low fill levels, or the wrong length of chain between your flush handle and flapper valve.

Unexplained Water Level Drop in Toilet Bowl

If the water level in your toilet bowl drops significantly, you may have a partial clog siphoning the water from the bowl. It can also be a sign of a defect or crack within the colon of the toilet.

Shaking Toilets and Weak Flushers

Water is released into the bowl from small holes located within the lip of the toilet bowl. Hard water and mineral deposits can accumulate and plug these holes, leading to a weak flush. An unstable toilet that shakes when you sit down is a sign that the grout between the floor and toilet must be replaced.

Leaking Base and Gurgling Bathtubs

The leak caused by this problem may have caused water damage leading to floor repairs. Gurgling sounds from your bathtub, when you flush, are indicative of a clog. This can be a clog within the vent pipe, or a clog deeper in the system.
