No one wants to have toilet issues, and for some, they are easily preventable. It’s always smart to be aware of these common issues so that when they happen, you’re ready.
- The Toilet Is Leaking. If you notice water anywhere around the toilet, you’ll want to get this taken care of right away. Not only is it harmful to the function of your toilet, but the leaking water can also cause damage to your home.
- The Toilet Seat is Cracked or Wobbly. Cracking or wobbling can be a safety hazard for your family. It can cause someone to fall off of the seat. If the toilet seat is beyond repair, it’s best to get a replacement as soon as possible.
- The Toilet Is Constantly Running. This can cause tremendous waste, which can be expensive. The solution to this issue is usually the flapper or the fill valve in the fill tank. These parts may need to be repaired or replaced if they are not performing as they should.
- The Toilet Seat Creaks. If your toilet seat is making more noise than it should when opening and closing, try spraying a lubricant on the hinges and tightening any screws. If this does not solve the problem, you may want to invest in a slow-close toilet seat. With this kind of seat, you won’t have to hear any creaking or slamming from the toilet seat.
