It’s hard to believe there was ever a time when people didn’t have toilets in their homes. You probably don’t even want to imagine what that would be like. It’s certainly not a pleasant thought, but then again, neither is the thought of having a toilet stop working. Toilets are one of the most common issues we get calls about. If something is malfunctioning with a toilet, it can become extremely serious. Sewage leaking or flooding into a home is highly unsanitary and is a health hazard.
Here are a few warning signs that your toilet isn’t working as well as it should be:
- You can hear water running all the time, or periodically, when it isn’t in use
- It is slow to drain
- It doesn’t drain entirely
- It is leaking
- You have to use a plunger frequently
- It is not sturdy or it wobbles
Unfortunately, there are a lot of people who wait until it’s too late before calling a plumber.
