A clogged or overflowing toilet isn’t an inconvenience: it’s a crisis. You can rely on Benjamin Franklin Plumbing® to repair it in a hurry.
Chances are you don’t think much about your toilet until something goes wrong. It might be a clog, leaking around the base or poor flushing action. Whatever the problem, we can perform the repair, or replace it and install a new toilet.
If your water bills have been increasing but your usage hasn’t, the culprit may be lurking in your bathroom: A toilet can be one of the biggest wasters of water. One of the most common (and overlooked) leaks in the home is the toilet flapper. Not sure if you have a toilet leak? Check your winter water bills. According to the EPA, if a family of four uses more than 12,000 gallons of water per month, it’s likely there’s a serious leakage problem.
Attached to the bowl is a siphon tube that curves so that it will only drain water from the bowl when it reaches a certain height. When the tank water is quickly pumped into the toilet bowl, the siphon tube overflows and the toilet automatically flushes.
Updating your toilets is an easy way to lower your water consumption (and your bills). The experts at Benjamin Franklin Plumbing can help you select a new toilet, outlining the features of each so you can decide on the one that’s right for you. Some of the variations available include:
- An elongated bowl
- Comfort height
- Pressure assisted flush
- Dual flush
- High efficiency
