Toilet Installation & Repair Service in Berkeley
One fact of life in the modern world is that toilets are things that need to be maintained, at times repaired and maybe even replaced. There are certain signs that a toilet is having problems. If there are condensation or leaks round the pipe, extremely clogged bowls, inadequate flushing strength, constantly running water, etc. it may time for a plumbing professional to see what's causing these things to happen.
If a toilet is leaking, overflowing or even leaking from the bottom, it may be in need of repair. It is important to detect the precise problem affecting a toilet. A homeowner may do a simple fix, but a surface problem may be masking a more serious problem that could develop into an expensive repair. The location of a leak could cause health issues. Bacteria that wasn't able to go beyond the plumbing, may be able to slowly make its way into a home's living surfaces. In addition to health concerns, a slow leak can add hundreds of dollars to a home's water bill.
The best way to fix problems with a toilet is by proper maintenance. This means nothing but toilet paper should be flushed down the toilet. Diapers, paper towels, napkins and more can all cause problems in the plumbing. An easy way to detect a leak is to put a few drops of food coloring into the toilet tank, and after 30 minutes check if the colored water has traveled into the toilet bowl. A small leak is something that can lead to big problems.
When problems do occur they may be fixed easily by replacing the proper parts. There are other times when multiple problems or cracks will require toilet replacement, or people who aren't experiencing problems, but want their toilet replaced for cosmetic considerations.
Any homeowner who tries to repair or install their own toilet, or even pay an unlicensed contractor, may experience more serious problems over time. In order to get the best results, a homeowner should work with an experienced and properly licensed plumbing professional like Albert Nahman Plumbing and Heating. They can give you a fair price and guarantee their work.
