Toilet Problems?

Having a toilet overflow or leak is never fun. It’s even worse when there are underlying issues that cause a toilet to leak. There are many health issues that can arise through a broken toilet. Subsequently when a major issue arises in your bathroom it can mean a total shut down of an important room in your house!

Although it may seem like a mere irritation, a leaking toilet should be taken seriously. To avoid the larger issues that water damage can cause it is advisable to address the malfunction straight away.

There are several common causes of such a leak such as: (But not limited to)

Faulty Wax Ring

One reason you may find water merging at the base of your toilet is that the wax seal between the toilet and the floor has dried or was improperly installed.

Broken Flange

Another possible perpetrator for a leaking toilet is the flange.

Degraded Supply Tube

Supply tubes can sometimes fail, or develop leaks over time. A wet supply tube is a sign of a loose coupling nut or broken supply tube.
