3 Toilet Repairs You’ll Need a Plumber to Handle, Shelton, Connecticut

Many homeowners fail to appreciate the value of a working toilet—that is, until it stops working. Some toilet repairs are simple enough for an amateur to manage, while others require the trained eye of a professional plumber. For those times, call Al’s Plumbing LLC in Shelton, CT. 

Which toilet repairs you should leave to the professionals? Here are three problems for Al and his crew.

1. Irregularly Running Water

toilet repairsIf your toilet runs continuously, the chain in your tank might be preventing the flapper from closing the hole at the bottom. You can fix that yourself by adjusting the length of the chain. If, however, the water is running irregularly, you might have a leaky flush valve that needs replacing. This is a tricky toilet repair you want a qualified plumbing contractor to handle.

2. Slowly Refilling Tank

If you find yourself tapping your toe and checking your watch while the toilet tank refills after a flush, you have a plumber-worthy problem. If it’s a leaky flapper, your plumber will fix the seal. However, if you hear trickling water, your flush valve probably needs to be replaced.

3. Water Around the Base of Your Toilet

Toilet repairs can be complicated, but they don’t have to be with a licensed, experienced plumber. You can feel good about turning these repairs over to the team at Al’s Plumbing LLC.
